One week from today

I painted up this sign for the wall outside of our Boutique doorway.  Hopefully people can see it as they walk down the hall.

It's hard to believe that in just a week it will be Christmas Day.  I don't know why, but it doesn't feel very Christmassy.  Perhaps it is because the weather isn't typical winter weather.  Not that I am a lover of snow, au contraire, I can't stand it, but at least it does add to the Christmas atmosphere.

This evening I went to the movies with my ex colleagues from the Library, Helena and Janis.  It's always a pleasure to spend time with these two lovely ladies.  (Jenny-Wren, I missed you this evening - the ladies told me you were coming and I was disappointed when they said that there was a change of plans - perhaps another time.)  This is the movie that we watched and we all seemed to enjoy it.  I had never seen a 3D movie before so it was quite an experience and I loved how I could reach out my hand and almost catch a bird.

"Based on the best-selling novel by Yann Martel, is a magical adventure story centering on Pi Patel, the precocious son of a zoo keeper. Dwellers in Pondicherry, India, the family decides to move to Canada, hitching a ride on a huge freighter. After a shipwreck, Pi finds himself adrift in the Pacific Ocean on a 26-foot lifeboat with a zebra, a hyena, an orangutan and a 450-pound Bengal tiger named Richard Parker, all fighting for survival."

I'm enjoying the time we (Carol, Gary and myself) have been spending at our Boutique.  We are only open on the weekends and decided to open on Sunday afternoon, along with our normal Saturday, until Christmas.  What a waste of time, LOL - two weeks ago I made $8 and this last Sunday I made $5.  One more Sunday to go (this weekend).  Saturdays have picked up since the main street in town has re-opened after having been closed off for the whole of the summer for construction.

Here are a few of the items I have been working on this past week.  Hope I sell them this weekend.  Along with these new items, we have lots of great ideas for Christmas gifts.  We have such a variety of both old (antique) and new and even repurposed items, all waiting for new homes.  Stop by and visit us if you can.

I picked up this little basket at our Church's bazaar a couple of weeks ago and it is perfect for holding my received Christmas cards.

Have a wonderful and blessed Christmas filled with all good things, but especially with those that you love and cherish.
