I woke up very early this morning not sure why, not a work day.
I was so glad I did! That is Venus peeking out of the pines.
The wind was completely calm just beautiful.
But it was icy! We had rain overnight and then the temps dropped.
When I walked this morning there was black ice on the pavement, I was glad to get to the dirt road to walk 4 hilly miles.
Sat was nice so husband cleaned windows so we can see Santa when he is in the neighborhood!
And he decorated the outside a bit. And do you know what I did?I headed for the Woolen Pear (Pam Bartlett) for a wool fix. And what a good fix it was! I am going to be working on a larger rug and was looking for some help color planning. She was very helpful and had wonderful wool!
I put our little feather tree up when I got home. We moved our seating around from one side of the house to the other and pretty much closed down 1/2 of the house on the main floor. It was all so we could enjoy the fireplace in this room this winter. So worth it! But no room for our large tree. But this one is doing nicely.
New Year's eve is done and bound. I made the clock a wall clock so you could see the midnight he was celebrating. You cannot see the pink champagne in his glass or the little pink bubbles floating from the glass but trust me it is there. I really love this rug and it was a joy to work on. My blog friend did the same rug (click here) and she has just finished her's also. It is fun to see the different way we did the same rug.
I just finished this little chair pad today while watching my Patriots squeak out a win. I will finish this and it maybe a Christmas gift.
I treated myself to Doreen Frost's holiday letter. It was filled with recipes and lots of creative ideas. I love getting fun mail and it was a wonderful!
When husband and I walked tonight we saw the moon rising! This
picture does nothing for the amazing sight of the moon tonight! It was just rising and it was still bright yellow from the reflection of the setting sun, breath taking!
Thanksgiving was just husband and I. I baked a chicken and today with the leftovers I made chicken pie. Very good if I do say so myself.
And speaking of Thanksgiving sigh... I started seeing floaters in my left eye on Tue late afternoon. But by Wed evening I was seeing flashes of light. Thanksgiving it was worse. So I called the 800 number for a nurse though my insurance. She said do not wait call your eye Dr group. Well I did, he called right back and saw me within an hour. (they are 45 to 50 minutes from them!) At this point I am scared! Really scared! He dilated my eye and did a very though exam. And good news! I am just getting old! No tears in the retina or detachment. He assured me I did the right thing and any change he wanted to see me again. I never do anything easily.
So for this Thanksgiving I have much to be thankful for. My blessings are many.
I hope no matter how you celebrated you took time to count your blessings we all have them.
Have a wonderful week!
