December 11, 1971 The Beauty Shop, The Christmas Party, The Old Mustang, The Post Office and The Christmas Quilt
"I'm sitting in the beauty shop waiting to get a permanent. I meant to get this done early in the week but couldn't get around to calling for an appointment.
Our Quill Club Christmas party it tonight and I'm co-hostess so I've been making cookies all week. I'd rather just do a fancy dessert and have it done with but the hostess wanted to have a tea table and lots of fancy cookies.
It has been pouring rain so this is a messy day but it is warm and spring-like.
I finally got Ann's package mailed but haven't had time to do any more sewing on Pat's things. I've been to two luncheons and that always kills most of the afternoon.
Everyone seems to have their houses decorated but us. I haven't put out a single thing except a candle Larsens sent us. Maybe I can decorate the tree and get out some other decorations next week.
I'm writing cards now and have done a lot but have a long way to go. We cut a lot of names off our list but everyday we get a lot so I don't know how it will come out.
Bob & Pat loved the red quilt. Bob said they would use it every Christmas & I told him it wasn't a Christmas quilt. He insisted it was because it had a red star and green holly leaves and I could see what he meant. I promised to get it quilted one of these days and I will.
I don't believe I asked Buddy what they are doing Christmas. Did I tell you Larsens have invited us for Christmas dinner? Dick & his wife & baby will be there. That is Larsens' only child and first grandbaby. He was born on Bob's birthday.
Hope you are fine."
