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 I’m found dead someday with an extra arm, you read … Continue reading Ready to Ring in the New Year!
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 on Nancy’s sweater – Kathy Zimmerman’s Katharine Hepburn cardigan (regular, … Continue reading It’s Coming Down Today!
