Oh I do love this first day of winter! It’s been especially busy the past couple days (beyond the normal pre-holiday rush, I had some urgent admin business related to my school funding pop up on Monday), but we did make sure the Christmas/Winter tree made it up on time! 🙂
My final grades for the semester were posted today, and I was so happy with the results. Not that I’m motivated by grades; I’m simply trying to learn as much as I can from each class. But it is nice when efforts are noted and projects are successful. 🙂
The gifts I made for friends and family were printed today, and I’m really pleased with the results, too. Each is unique and beautiful in its own way — I’ll post photos of them after they’ve been gifted, as I don’t want to spoil any surprises. I still have some shopping to finish tomorrow and Friday, and then wrapping and more baking on Saturday (there are chocolate peppermint cookies in the oven now, too), but it feels good to have the bulk of the work behind me.
Now, off to enjoy some of those cookies!
