Ready to Ring in the New Year!

Did I tell you John is my hero? Yes, I got everything off the tree, and packed away 90 percent of the ornaments and Christmas kitch, and helped pack them up this afternoon, while we both itched away at our faces. I cannot figure out what the heck is in that tree – but if…

It’s Coming Down Today!

John cannot deal with the Christmas tree. It makes his face swell up like he’s been stung by a yellowjacket. We can’t figure out what it is – perhaps some toxic substance used to keep the bugs away, who knows? But it’s gotta go. Before Epiphany. Oh well. Then I’ll be able to continue working…

Another kind of major project

One I’m not particularly proud of – but it’s done – and it took me all the livelong day to get it done! I just finished! The pictures say it all. Ahhhhh. Now I know where (almost) everything is! And I can really focus on that brief (I know, I’m on vacation, but this is…

Finally Done! Well, almost:)

It obviously needs blocking and after John tried it on, it became apparent that I need to add about 2 inches of length – approx 5 cm. I should be able to do this with a roll-up edge, as I don’t think it ever looks quite right to try to add ribbing to the bottom…

Stay Right Here, ‘Cause These are the Good Old Days

It’s been a lovely Christmas and I am exhausted. Really really exhausted, mostly because my feet have been giving me a fit, and also because last night was not a great night for sleeping. Everybody was over this morning-to-afternoon for exchanging gifts and the usual big Christmas dinner, which for us is turkey with all…

Good thing I like Rock….

Am sitting in the junk/Christmas presents/pine needles/ornaments-bestrewn living room typing this as our Only Begotten son and our daughter, the Penultimate Child, play some computer game with a fake guitar and a fake set of drums. I don’t mind hearing the songs over and over, after all, I grew up hearing most of them (that…

Quick post

Am just about to head out the door to the Post Office – have to get stamps and mail some more Christmas cards out. What do you wanna bet I get home within the hour? Yeah, me neither, LOL. Today was kind of fun and weird at the same time. Had court this morning –…
