Hello dear community of #weekendexperiences, I greet you and introduce myself to you. My user is @florecitamejias and I have seen you in all these activities that users do, but as my weekends were becoming so monotonous, it was difficult to pass by here. Today I want to share two experiences we would say in the extremes but that I enjoy and I summarize them as follows:

A time to leave, a time to arrive

I hope you enjoy it.

I love November, because it is a month that I celebrate many things; in previous publications, I showed them as for example my birthday. This year was very special (seriously, very special), because my niece visited us, whom I haven't seen for 4 years. Even though I was sick, we were able to share some days, hug her, talk to each other, we had lunch and well, the day of the farewell came. On the other hand, the most beautiful time of the year arrived at my house: Christmas, and that's how we lived it.

Time to leave

On Saturday, even though her flight was leaving at 3 o'clock in the afternoon, we got up very early so as not to waste time with her. She packed her bags and with a "lump in her throat" we left for the airport.

The first time she left I also accompanied her to her flight and this time, it would be no exception. It is not easy to say goodbye, we should not say goodbye, less to our loved ones, but these are moments, decisions and actions that we take always thinking about our development and growth.

Continuing with Saturday, I found the airport clean, organized and crowded. Due to the pandemic and the high costs, in addition to the flight closures, the airport looked empty and abandoned. This time, I was delighted to see it that way and it even made me want to travel! just to be served so well.

It's nice to know that we can connect with the world and that your flight left without delay, the service was impeccable and all the facilities were adequate, with a Christmas atmosphere.

It was time to hug, say goodbye and wish you all the best. Goodbyes hurt, but I know he is growing in other lands and his happiness is mine.

Time to start

Once this day of farewell and longing was over, we stayed at home as we do every Saturday, but we knew that the next day we had a special activity in the Catholic Church, the celebration of "Advent Sunday". With all spirits low, we did not even make the traditional wreath with the candles that reflect the preparation for Christmas.

It is also worth mentioning that my mother loves Christmas! Since her childhood I think, she loves the lights, the trees and of course THE GIFTS. For years, she is in charge of buying all the decorative items, she knows what colors are in fashion and everything related to the holidays.

By tradition, my mother puts up the Christmas, i.e. the decorations, paints the house, puts out table linens, china sets and all the decorations on November 1st. This means that a month before, she is painting, cleaning, arranging, buying, believe me, it's crazy for her. However, due to the different adversities and illnesses that we have gone through in the last few months, it had not been a priority.

But on Sunday, taking advantage of the church date I mentioned, she said, "Today yes! So early in the morning, she called the lady who helps her with the cleaning and they started to take out boxes, clean spaces, throw away things that were damaged or simply did not match with the others.

My living room is small, so there was not much to place. This year, because we couldn't even go out, we still haven't bought some things as we are always used to having "something new", but it's nice to know that my mother keeps her ornaments and they don't go out of style. Therefore, colors like green, gold and red are the ones that reign this time.

I am not much of these ornaments but I like the fabric ones, they are more comfortable and can be easily washed. Besides, I feel that they support the people who make them manually.

Everything was very clean and pretty as I share in the photos. She is already happy. As for me, I have to put up the nativity, but I will leave that for the week, because I still need some figures that make up the nativity.

Well, to have quiet weekends, this one was very busy and it is always good to get out of the comfort zone. The departure of my niece and the arrival of Christmas at my house, marked these two days that we celebrated with some "hallacas" (traditional Venezuelan dish) that we bought, because at my house

It smells like Christmas
