Our house is empty once again except for my husband and I. My youngest left yesterday and my eldest with his fiance today. We had a lovely few days. For the first time in a few years, I was not sick, nor was anyone else. On the day of our big blizzard we all went to the spa. It's only 2 minutes from home. We swam in the salt water, lolled in the hot tub and steamed in the sauna while the storm raged outside the windows. Once home, we cocooned. While some napped and read, I sewed. I've almost gotten the final borders on my quilt. I'll show it later.
Since I wasn't working, it enabled me to get a few things made ahead, so we spent less time in the kitchen cooking. We went for walks, played games, and we watched movies. Everyone pitched in for the dishes, so I felt like it was totally relaxing. I missed my daughter, but she has sent us a quick email from the resort in Vietnam every day. What more could one ask? It was a lovely time.
I'm just going to show a picture of a gift that I did for my oldest son who likes to garden. I carried it home one day from our downtown waterfront. My mother-in-law found the dragonfly on her deck and saved it for me.
 I'll be back soon, but now we're going to get ready to go snow shoeing.

Glad you had a good Christmas and a healthy one. I still have my youngest daughter here till Sunday and want to spend time with her. Then she will be gone and I will get down to some sewing.
