long holiday weekending

The weekend in Connecticut was lots of fun. I got to see my folks, my brother, and my best friend. There was a lot of talking.

I watched the parade, some old and a new-to-me holiday movies, and a nice chunk of the Great Performances‘ taping of Holiday Inn.

There were old favorites consumed and new favorites sampled. I helped bake rolls, roll pie dough, mash potatoes, and make gravy. I decorated several dozen spritz cookies. I drank hot egg nog and ate gingerbread cake.

I helped my parents set up Christmas trees (or, at least, to get them indoors) and did some Christmas shopping.

I vegged in front of the fire, finished some knitting, and got a little reading done. I did not get to go through many of my boxes in the basement.

And while there was a lot of time in the car, there was no time in the office for six whole days!

I hope you all had a nice holiday weekend, too!

We helped our daughter decorate. It was very fun. Much of her decorations are NEW to me. Did you assign dates for the holiday posts?

I watched Holiday Inn too! Unfortunately I fell asleep because I was super tired :/

Tasha B: I did, too, because I caught the middle-of-the-night showing. But it’s streaming on the PBS Great Performances website, so Rudi and I will probably watch it there next week.

@kathy b: I bet your daughter was glad for your help. And it’s always so cool to see other people’s decorations, isn’t it?
