Because you might be curious, by late afternoon yesterday our water was turned back on. A major repair will happen next week. Yes, again.
First things this morning I headed to the hospital for MRI. Getting the MRI had taken a series of phone calls before the MRI department accepted the fact that the doctor wanted me to have an MRI. Everyone got on the same page, and now, it is done. The view of early sun on the Oquirrh mountains from the hospital parking lot made the trip worthwhile.
As soon as I arrived home I decided to kick up the spirit of the season. My contribution to dinner tomorrow will be an appetizer, one I have never made, but it sounded too good not to try. I wrapped the sweet potatoes, got them in the oven to bake and will make Sweet Potato Hummus this afternoon. This dish could be a hit or a miss. I'll keep you posted.
Next, I hung a new wreath on the front door. It is sparkly and looks like something from a Midsummer Night's Dream. I confess to being totally enchanted. I've opened the door a couple of times to check its lovely silveriness. How I wish my camera caught that sparkle.
I also hung a new wreath on the back gate. The swirling needles take up the whole of the width and, as I walk into the patio, I'll need to dodge the longish twigs of the outer edge. But, this wreath also sparkles with a festive sprit and I'm enjoying the happy feelings I get at the beginning of the season.
The big box of lights, and other assorted Christmas decorations, has been pulled from the closet and I'll do what I can the next couple of days to make our home festive and bright. The lights are the most important thing, as the nights are so over long. Our days continue to be warm (65!) and clear (although, it may get a little hazy). As soon as the potatoes are out of the oven I'll be walking the trail, my knee in a brace, but walk it I must. The sun is too precious.
May your day of prep be joyous and may it flow smoothly! Happy T-day Eve!!
