Getting ready for Christmas. I am actually going to host brunch at my home on Thursday with a few available local relatives & a couple of non-related revelers. Put up a few more festive things in my home than I normally do: my actual decorated Christmas tree, large animated Mickey & Minnie on hearth along with tiny m & m mouse tree, new framed sign (If You Stop Believing in Santa You Get Underwear), crochet snowflake tree branch, tall metal silver & gold tree with icicles & snowflakes, animated m mouse toys I have been gifted over the years, and twinkly white lights & snowflakes outside. I had done little in the way of festivity over the last few years so this is unusual. Tonight progressive dinner Part 3 held at Jim's house. I'm on overload with holiday Hallmark movies. Why do I keep recording them?

I am so not good at the gift-giving thing. It is always fraught with anxiety.

My current obsession is designing & scouting for fabric (plaid taffeta) for a Regency (Jane Austin) dress to wear to Night in Vienna at the end of January. Taffeta has been elusive but today I just bid on & won 6+ yards on eBay. Excited to see if it is actually suitable when it arrives. If not, back on eBay it goes.

Doing some baking. Fruitcake, first time ever. (I don't actually like it but a couple of people in my life do ... so why not? A few kinds of cookies and that's about it.

Sister & brother-in-law are coming to visit at the end of January from Portland. That's always interesting.

Teaberry's cataracts have not worsened in the 6 years I've been taking him to eye specialist. For this I am grateful.
