Well, here we are a week into the new year and I'm finally back!!
Hope everyone had a nice holiday? I must say this was one of the nicest holiday seasons I've had in years!
I'm not quite sure why~~I attribute most of it to the two weeks that I sort of drifted through right after Thanksgiving. Knowing that the pressure was off as far as the shopping/knitting goes made such an attitude adjustment! The days that KK and I went out were so calm and enjoyable~~no crazy frantic driving all over trying to find the perfect gifts.
We did good~~everyone was pleased with their gifts and no exchanges were needed!
Course KK babying me the past month was quite nice too!! He totally surprised me with the gifts he chose and I loved everything!
Quick update on the teeth issue~~I'm finding more things that I'm able to eat as long as I'm careful. No chomping down hard on anything yet and still no meat to speak of. I think that's what I miss the most~~a medium rare steak is just waiting for me! Unfortunately that's going to be quite awhile yet! I've had to return to the dentist a couple times and I think I've got to go again now. I can't believe this is going to go on for six months! Ok, enough of that~~
On to the knitting~~there hasn't been any! I'm working on the ripple afghan(crochet) for Heather's xmas gift. (she knows) I'm not touching anything else until it's finished! I've been reading my yahoo sock groups and I'm so tempted to cast on some socks but I know if I do that the afghan will wind up being next years gift!
When the kids were younger they had all sorts of video games and I could never get interested. They always wanted me to play ~~I could never get the controls right~my little guy was always going the wrong way or the first one knocked off! So they gave up on me~~~till now!!
I am officially addicted to Nintendo game cube~~Animal Crossing!! Who would have thought??
I love this game!! It's the cutest thing! That was one of my xmas gifts!! DD had it at her house and I watched her playing hers and thought "I like that game~~I could even do it"
So funny~~on Xmas day she brought her memory card over so we could visit each other's town!
This afternoon KK calls and asks "how are things in Marville?" Course I named it that~~where else would Mz Mar live? DD and I talk on the phone and you'd think we were talking about a real person and it's a critter from the game! It's fun~~something different.
Today it looks like we are finally getting hit with a bit of winter! The temp. has fallen from the 50's to the low 30's and we've had hail/snow on and off. It's still not really sticking the ground is too warm. They are saying the driving tonight is going to be tricky with black ice~~that's always scarry.
All the xmas things are put away~~finished it up today. That's so unlike me. Normally I'd have it done right before or right after New Year's day. Goes to show how much we enjoyed the season!
We're having knit nite tomorrow night and I'm looking forward to going. I missed all of Dec. I do think I'll take an afghan break and take my Weekend Sweater with me. I just have the sleeves to do and now with the colder weather I'd like it finished.
Off to crochet
