What a weekend this was. On Christmas Eve we all met at my friends for some dinner snacks. I took the presents I had over then because Alice's stepdaughter wouldn't be there Chirstmas day and I had a blanket for the baby she will have Tuesday. From there I rushed to my old church for Christmas Eve service. When I got home I was back to working on another present I was making and Christmas morning I made a pie for Christmas and some cocoa mix for Christmas presents. Then I went back to my friends for the Christmas Day festivities. This is when I got a really neat present from my friend Anne. She got me an Autoharp for Christmas. So one of my resolutions for next year will be to learn to play it. I have been looking for a book that will help with my learning and found out today that one of the other church members used to play one, so I may be able to get help with it. Anne had been looking for a Dulcimer since I had said I would like to try to learn how to play one, but there wasn't one available and the Autoharp will be better for me since I cannot hold down the strings with my fingers. Who ever heard of an old lady like me starting to learn a new instrument like that one?
I don't have any family around here, but Anne and Alice have adopted me into their families like a sister and it was really nice yesterday. I even had one of the girls sitting on my lap like she was my own niece and it really felt like I was a part of the family.
I hope that everyone had a VERY Merry Christmas.
