Enjoying The Moments

Sunshine and warmer temps today in NW Ohio.. Lovely day to think of planning for special events that will happen from now till the magical hoiday of Christmas arrives..
     Yesterday Tom and I traveled to Toledo for a appointment with the surgeon that preformed my surgery for cancer 3 months ago... After my exam I was told the comforting words that everything was normal at this time... I will be required to see him and be examined every three months for a year.....
     This coming Wednesday we will be having 2 other couples over to play cards.. share conversation and refreshments with...  I will need to plan the refreshment within the next couple days... Then comes the finalizing for the Moser { Tom's side of the family} which will consist of close to 70 people... With Tom coming from a family of 10 children the size of the group is way too many for our size home so we rent a hall in Archbold in the park.... As hosts this year we will provide the meat... provisions and set the hall and add the table decorations... Each member then brings a covered dish... I send announcements of the date and time and ask they to bring a certain dish of kind so we have a nice variety... Everyone helps with the cleanup so it does go quite smoothly... I have the centerpieces about completed and will finish them and the purchasing of needed items next week....
     I have most of my Christmas completed... Had plans on creating a few more paper altered art items but will see how it goes next week as I seem to have lost focus the last couple days... Just have the desire to CHILL today after the appointment yesterday even though I tried to stay calm it was hard to do when I was made to sit on the exam table with my bottom hanging out for one hour and fifteen minutes waiting for the doctor to come in the room.. He said he was running BEHIND as my BEHIND was freezing... So today it's taking it a bit easier and relaxing the body and mind... Tonight we will be traveling to Miller City to watch the first game of the basketball season for the Tinora Boys...
     I have been enjoying several Christmas movies, mainly shows on the Hallmark channel.. Nothing can brighten a night like a great movie and a roaring fire that adds beauty to the twinkling lights and decorations.. Just a perfect way to start the months of winter rich in beauty itself.. A lovely lighted Christmas snowy village sit on a glittery snowy cotton blanket when viewing it takes you to moments of relaxing... Vintage objects displays in glass of Christmas is also very lovely to the eye.. I am not afraid of excess when it comes to Christmas decorating.. all with just a touch of feminine... Many lovely dishes of candy and special treats not maybe normally found in everyday will be found sitting around for ourself and others that may visit to enjoy... While in Toledo today.. for anyone who lives close knows when you stop at Anderson's many arrays of bulk and special treats can be found there... We felt like we needed a few of those special treats and it consisted of things like sesame seed mix... cashews... bridge mix... wrapped candies.. hard candies...chocolate covered cherries... cookie assortment... ect... when we checked out with the cashier just the goodies was 70.00... Tom and I just looked at each other and smiled... yikes... maybe we should have eaten first....
   OK, I must get this posted and quit the gibbering and work on the laundry I have in the washer... Wishing you all a peaceful weekend and a whole big handful of  everyday blessings there for the taking... ENJOY!!

So glad you got good news! Butt you made me laugh! :0) I agree you can't overdo decorations for Christmas. I just hate undoing everything! I hope your event goes well. Glad you're taking it easy for a day or two. "It's a Wonderful Life" is showing in the big theater here on the 19th and I hope we get to see it on the big screen! Stay cozy!
