After Christmas wind down....
I have given Oliver a rest this week as he was getting quite sassy from all the attention he was getting. He attacked every piece of tissue paper, every box or bag, and begged for food shamelessly. Therefore he is flagged this week because taking his picture just gives him such pleasure that he will be out of control. He is a little miffed, and claims that he will start his own blog but I have not given him the password to my computer. Sometimes we must be the pack leader and do what is best for the pack. He will be returning next week pending a review of his behavior.
Now as I fly back from the other side of the rainbow........
I am still working away on my afghan that is for my one sister. I will see her on Saturday and it must be finished by then. I will take a picture of the finished product if only to remind myself how much I hated doing it. I changed the pattern and have been picking away at since early December. I just can't wait to finish it and then finish my last four projects started in 2007. That way I will feel better about the New Year and any new projects. I know that I knit for the pleasure of knitting, but I do think that projects need to be completed unless absolutely awful and then they go to the frog pond.
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday with family and friends....ours was a mixture of dread, cooking, cleaning up, followed by a day of vegetating on the couch. Now that the pressure is off I am enjoying all the little chicks home and on Friday night we will have our annual Christmas outing to a movie for the family. I think the 2nd National Treasure will be the choice. Each year after Christmas all five of us go to dinner and a movie. We have done it since the chicks were little and the movies have ranged from Beauty and the Beast, & Harry Potter, to James Bond. Now that the kids are older we venture into the pg 13 and r rated movies. I have drawn the line at Sweeney Todd, how ever. I do not like gore with my movies. So hope that you enjoyed the holiday time and are looking forward to the New Year. I have noticed that I am getting closer to 100 posts and I plan to celebrate with a contest for all my blog friends. Right now I am in the high 80's so 100 isn't too far to go.
See you all next year!
