Our very simple Holidays are half over and so far we've had a very nice time. Mr. Homesteader and I took great delight in watching Dave react to crinkly paper, jingle balls, rooster feathers and catnip.
I can't believe how spoiled this cat is...I mean, of course we got him a couple of toys...but then two more people popped by with gifts for him.
Turkey Dinner was terrific even though the bird was a little over done. The gluten free bread made very nice stuffing and I'd do it again in a heartbeat. Best part of all is that I've added stock back to the freezer to have for later dates...my supply had run out.
Mr. Homesteader gave me a couple of pairs of antique sock stretchers...the perfect gift for a knitter and all around fibre geek.
My cousin came around to enjoy turkey dinner with us and gave us each a lovely hand knit scarf! He's only been knitting less than a year.
And what gift giving season would be complete without books.
I'm working a reasonably small shift right now, my only one for the entire week. Although it's short, I can't wait to get back to spending time off with my favourite man and my favourite cat:)
