December is just about here.
Look what I found in my mail box a baby in one of my sweaters. Now without the distortion this baby is soooo pretty she makes my sweater look very special. This is Rindy's Top down pattern. I would link, but I don't know where the pattern is now. I had a friend from Raverly point this out to me last month. Wonderful pattern and from a kind lady that made so many sweaters for charity not to mention all those made from her pattern. It is a real loss for beginners in need of lovely sound basic patterns.
Time to bring Christmas to the side of the hill. WP. has a big basketball game next Sat. so guess we will have the kids in to work their magic the 10th. This week I have another Dr. app. its a big one..send me a hug Monday morning. I accept mental hugs with joy. Later in the week its off to Nan-Nan's to bring some Christmas joy to their house. I must make their yearly fruit bread. I was going to ,skip it this year and Nan said, well I guess I'll have to make them. Yes, I still respond to my mother's kindly guilting (new word created just for my mom and I). I suspect one never out grows this.
I have 25 more rows to go on the ripple it is a monster. Nadia does not want it. She wants one in shades of green now. So I am not sure where it will go. I have a very close friend ( 28 years), that is now house bound. Gigi, is 86 ans a second mom to me. She is at the top of the ripple list. Violets baby blanket is still in the basket. I am such a bad friend.
I made a roast for dinner. WP. really enjoyed the dinner. Its so nice to sit down with him and eat a meal, and know he does not have to go into town to work. This retirement thing just doesn't get old. I wake up every morning with a grateful heart.
Ok...heres an old saying that cropped up this last weekend. Nadia was whistling and a hen started crowing....yes a hen as Noah said, Mimi that is just not right, indeed my dear son. heres why growing up I was not encouraged to whistle in the chicken yard just in case. Now here it comes..................
" A whistling girl and a crowing hen will always come to some bad end." . Did I ever tell you I have a quilt almost done with the centers having the printed verses of family sayings on them. I made it so that when a person was sick they could read them. They will make you smile now...maybe not 60 years ago it was kind of serious. ;)
This week may each of you have good things in every nook and cranny of your life. Surprises that make you want to twirl , and simple pleasures that make you feel safe... may it all be yours my dears.
