December 1st!

The first day of the darkest month of the year is a great one. JM put up the Christmas lights and I spent most of the day making scrap quilt Christmas stockings for the upcoming Craft Faire (photos of those pending). Walked over to see my neighbour who has thankfully survived carotid artery surgery - took her some dark chocolate covered almonds which have been recommended to her by her doctor along with red wine :-)

Listened to my favourite Christmas song of all time, Mincemeat Tart by Roy Forbes. Listen here  http://www.royforbes.ca/wma/tart3.mp3
