Yesterday Shannon and I celebrated our last official "Friday" of the year. To honour the moment, we went to our favourite local Chinese food place and ordered "108." The lovely man who runs the restaurant shooed us away with a free meal. What a lovely gift to receive for Christmas. Thanks, Jimmy!
I was excited to sit down and watch a movie, and oddly - this is something I've not done for a while outside the SciFi Surprize Series. I just watched something, just 'cuz. I actually didn't think of it even, Jamie said "Why don't you watch a movie?" and I was like...why don't I? And so I did. I watched Tomorrow, When the War Began which I've wanted to see for years and I really enjoyed watching it and not thinking about anything other just watching it. Not for review, not for recommending, just because I wanted to. Wow. That was sa-weet.
I had such a great time Skyping with Auntie Laima and wow, is she ever a good teacher. She got me serging right away and even got me to thread the embroidery machine too. She set up the serger so it did not need to be threaded which I was so grateful for and I am amazed at how fast and easy it is to use. I can see all sorts of ideas in my head now about stuff I can make, it's amazing. It was wonderful hanging out with family on such a dark day and have a ton of creative fun.
