The most wonderful time of the year!!!

It's the most wonderful time of the year as they say in the song.I enjoy every minute of it whenever I can.Especially this weekend.I am almost recovered from the nasty flu I got at the beginning of the week.It was not fun I am telling you.My whole family was sick with the cough,fiver,chills,body aches-the works!But we survived and everything is back to normal now,thank god.These pictures are snippets of  my day today.Very rarely I will be able to post pictures on the day I take them but today is one of these days.I got a lot of rest and drank a lot of herb tea with chocolate cakes,did some chores and took a lot of pictures,cooked delicious creamy potato soup and went to the Christmas parade with my girl and her friends.It is one of those days that create memories.

Snapshots from the end of November

It was a wonderful three-day weekend spent in the slow lane.There was a lot of  resting, cooking,decorating for Christmas,knitting,reading books,coffee drinking and shopping.
Down went the Fall decorations and up went the Christmas tree.We can't have a real one because my husband is allergic to pine trees.And this year we also have to skip on all the breakable decorations because our Maya is quite a trouble maker.We are afraid that one day when coming after work we will find the whole Christmas tree down on the floor.Let's hope she won't go that far though.
The cute deer in the first picture is a thrift store find.I love treasure hunting in the thrift stores.
I've been in a knitting mood recently making hat after hat and scarf after scarf.When I am stressed out I reach for the knitting needles.Knitting has such a therapeutic effect on me.The idea for the hat with the little owls is from Pintrest.I saw the picture and thought to myself "Oh,I can make that!"And I did it.My daughter liked it too ,so I made one for her as well.I am sorry I don't have a picture of hers to show you.
The pencil sketch in the last picture is from 12 days ago.I did it when I started reading The Fault Of Our Stars by John Green.I finished the book yesterday and I loved it.I haven't see the movie yet.I did not want to see it before I read the book.My daughter has seen it already and she said she cried a lot.
