Long Time Passing

A while since I've posted, been busy and then tired...busy again and even more tired.
Tree and decorations up>

Gifts ready to mail>
Much candy making and baking.>

Last night Anah and J made gingerbread. Craziness abounded. I accidentally turned on the mixer and it jumped out of the bowl. I guess my expression was a sight to behold, but thank goodness no evidence remains. Two icing bags had holes, in all my many years of decorating never had that happen, so cookies are not elaborate. A blessing I suppose because sugar is really rather evil.

1 dozen plus dishcloths>

Presents wrapped ( thank you Erin)>

Watched a good number of Christmas flicks>

Eye doctor appointment tomorrow so resting up for that.

Just finished "The Witch Elm" which dragged on and on. Rather a disappointment as I usually really enjoy Ms. French's writing. Looking around for what to read next.

Cards not done, but I dont send many and if they are late doesn't matter.

Weather quite warm, but lots of mud now. Jacked my back up washing the dog last week. She was chasing a rabbit and came to the door with mud crusted feet and belly. She does smell good now though.

Yay! You got a big tree up! I only do a little one, now. I get too tired if I try to do a big one. I guess I could do it in stages :P

Maybe J is a good cook?

The dishcloths look very good. I saw some at a market once and thought I should do some, but never have. That's mainly because the one shop that sells cotton yarn here is very expensive on that item, and also, I'd have to buy a crochet hook! I gave the only one I had to No 1 granddaughter who has never used it with her Knitting Nancy. What a waste!

Glad you had someone to help you with the wrapping. I always find that very tiring. I was tired on Sunday after doing a marathon run!

Good luck with your eye doctor appointment tomorrow!

And I hope your back returns to normal soon.

This is the biggest tree we have had in years, actually got all the ornaments on. Kids and grandkids do all the decorating while i sit and unwrap ornaments and pass them out. I am lucky.

Don't think J cooks, but he sure knows how to eat. He is a BIG BOY.

Do you knit? The dishcloths I make are knitted, simple pattern.

Thanks for the luck, much appreciated.

Yay for having young people in the house to help decorate etc! I like having young people around :)

Knows how to eat...haha :)

Yes, I do knit. What a good idea. I must look this up. I will go down the coast to a better shop and buy some cotton yarn. That local shop is to expensive. And they call themselves Gone Bonkers. Gone bonkers on the price going up, not down, I say!

Here is a link to the pattern I use: http://web.archive.org/web/20100107111450/http://www.groupepp.com/dishbout/kpatterns/grfavorite.html

Online Herrschners.com has good price for cotton yarn and I can get 2 out of one ball.

Young people do liven things up.

Thank you!

And than you for the recommendations, too.

Now to work out how to store your information. My printer needs ink and I don't have a word processor at the moment. bear with me!

That looks like a good pattern.
