On the fifth day of Christmas my true love gave to me two new refrigerators….. a lovely side by side for upstairs and a top and bottom for the basement. On the fourth day of Christmas my true love came to me….. and told me the brand new refrigerator in the basement wasn’t working!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I won’t panic, I won’t worry, I won’t, I won’t, I won’t!!!!!!!!!! I just have to go shopping for groceries and Christmas Dinner and I need someplace to put THE FOOD! ugh!
Is it me? Is it? or are things spinning out of control everywhere? I KNOW somewhere in my heart that it will all turn out ok and that I will pull this off, I just don’t know HOW yet. The Chiropractor has put me back in order (now I just have to refrain from moving the $%$^& wall unit again). Today was my last day at work and the kids have promised to help shovel out the house and get it presentable before Santa comes! hmmmmmmmmm.
As for my knitting, I cranked out another 1/2 dozen of my crocheted snowflake ornaments for little “extras” which has worked out well. I have not finished the handwarmers that were going to be gifts, but I will use them as birthday presents, so all is not lost.
My sister and I had a great time on Sunday in Connecticut. We went to “A Stitch in Time” which is a lovely “craft store” owned and staffed by wonderful people. I bought a couple of gifts and some Queensland Yarn for myself along with a lovely hank of gorgeous variegated wool to make a wrap of some sort. It was a wonderful day that went by much too quickly! We usually go for a weekend in the fall to celebrate our birthdays but we didn’t manage to go this year. We are hoping to make it a mid to late January trip – lots of time to sit and knit 🙂
I would like to take a minute to thank all of the wonderful people I have met through this blog. I didn’t know what to expect when I first started this (I guess I wasn’t really expecting too much), but I feel truly blessed to have had my life touched by such caring and kind people. I hope you are all coping with the before holiday stresses in your lives and I wish you all peace-filled time with loved ones.
