I went off to Pacifica, which is not that far from San Francisco to see Lisa and Alfie from, The Pickled Hutch.
I also met her mom who was in for a visit. They are both very nice.
Lisa has a very cute shop there where I purchased fireplace tools, something I needed since mine were falling apart.
I took my friend Nancy with me and then after that we went into Corte Madera to the Shabby Chic store. They are having a big sale on all their merchandise. I found a armchair there that I am considering buying. I have to think hard about it, because even on sale it's not cheap.

Some of you may have seen this video on YouTube. I think this is hilarious and should be view by one and all.
You'll need to turn down my music at the bottom of the blog to hear this.

On Christmas Eve
The sleigh was all packed, the reindeer were fed,
But Santa still knelt by the side of his bed.
"Dear Father," he prayed "Be with me tonight.
There's much work to do and my schedule is tight.
I must jump in my sleigh and streak through the sky,
Knowing full well that a reindeer can't fly.
I will visit each household before the first light,
I'll cover the world and all in one night.
With sleighbells a-ringing, I'll land on each roof,
Amid the soft clatter of each little hoof.
To get in the house is the difficult part,
So I'll slide down the chimney of each child's heart.
My sack will hold toys to grant all their wishes.
The supply will be endless like the loaves and the fishes.
I will fill all the stockings and not leave a track.
I'll eat every cookie that is left for my snack.
I can do all these things, Lord, Only Through You!
I just need your blessing, then it's easy to do.
All this to honor the birth of the ONE,
That was sent to redeem us, Your most Holy Son.
So, to all of my friends, least Your glory I rob,
Please Lord, remind them who gave me this job."

There are some in this land that just don't have much, and it's not much at all to go to a Thrift Shop and buy at least one or more coats for a Child or Adult. Or look in your closet to see what you or your loved ones don't wear anymore.
