Today was a fish day on both Orthodox calendars
and since some substitute egg for fish here,
I had the 'vegetarian weekday breakfast' as did the friend
that I visited after liturgy!
We figured out that come January we will have known each other 20 years!
So that was nice and good to get out!
I wrapped presents later, and made a quick red pasta for dinner,
using the rest of the 28oz tin of Italian plum tomatoes that I used for the soup
(Also half of the wine in my glass is now in fridge, I am a very light wine drinker!)
Oh and my IKEA shipment arrived... the new comforter, duvet cover, tealights and
the 6 French Goblets (wine glasses) came!
In a box that was at LEAST double the size it needed to be!
My neighbour carried it up for me,
it was so bulky... and half of it fully not used!
Crazy waste in both packing and in amount of cardboard used...
All came safely and for that I am so thankful
and that I was home when it was delivered!
Got 2 separate amazon envelope deliveries as well...
simple non-fancy gifts for Mr Husband that I wrapped up....
So, now I have 8 of these goblets and can do a fancy dinner party
with all dishwasherable things (other than my silver-plate silverware,
that is hand wash only, we found dishwasher leads it to tarnish more quickly
than when we hand wash them!).
So that's fun!!! I am already thinking that I will use 4 of these goblets
DV when I have the Christmas dinner with our Munchkin and his Mom
(he really liked these glasses as he had one at Thanksgiving and
really liked it... I love how kids are drawn to beauty!)...
I am thinking that tomorrow I want to try to have dinner
by candlelight again... it's been so busy that I have not had a chance to do this...
I am really wanting to just SIT and watch a Christmas movie, but
I got cookies to bake and hope to get to this!
The time for movie watching will be here again soon :)
Mr Husband helped me clean up after dinner
(last night I stayed up till 12 AM so that I could have a clean counter
this morning... which was so worth it)... so dishes are already done
and I hope to get on to baking tomorrow.... :)
And picking up my tall boots (been missing them!) with a new zipper, I hope
and such things... I love this time of year so much!
Really praying we don't get sick...
When well, this is a beautiful time of year....
