Can you hear it? Far, far away? In Iowa? It's the plane taking off to bring my baby boy home!! Yay, more yay, more yay, and as much yay as you can handle!! (Can you tell I'm a wee bit excited? LOL) He really doesn't leave until Friday, but I'm starting the celebration now. I pick him up from the Bay Area next Tuesday, but just to know that he's in California. Big Mom Sigh....
So, I know that all of you are just on the edge of your seat, waiting to hear what I've been up to this last week.
Christmas day was very quiet. Dinner for four, soup for Dad. I got up early to start the prime rib. Last Thanksgiving, I had a little accident with the lid to my roaster and broke the handle. Very sad. I ask hubby if he could find me a new handle. Hmmm, no. But, he could make me one! Okay.
Here is a picture of the finished product. Oak with tung oil. Isn't it pretty?
And since baby boy is on his way, here it the scarf that I've been working on for many months. I'm sure you will remember when I pulled out quite a bit of knitting since it was curling so badly:
It's still curling, but I think if I block it, it should be good. It's a wool blend, so he'll be able to use it in Iowa. LOL A lot.
And for my piece de resistiance....here is the latest update on my second giant granny square afghan. I love the purples and greens. It is much more vibrant than the picture shows.
Continuing with Christmas news...My baby sister decided that I needed a new tv. Honestly, tv is tv. I enjoy documentaries and crime shows, but I'm not really picky about the picture. I bought my tv in 1995. It is about 30 inches, in a wood cabinet. I like it. But baby sister is all about technology. Came in with a flat screen 50 inch tv. Really? The only thing I can think it will be good for is to watch YouTube videos of crocheting. LOL She has now spent two days, loading all the programs that SHE thinks I just NEED to have. I put my foot down on syncing my phone with the tv. I love baby sister, so I just sit quietly on the couch, head down, working on my knitting. There was only one glitch...as baby sister is opening the various boxes and bags, I glance over and see that she is using my embroidery scissors to do all this opening and cutting. After I regained my senses, and grabbed the scissors as if my life depended upon it, she looked at me. In a completely innocent voice, she comments that they are the sharpest scissors that she has ever used. What a surprise...
The next day, she sends me this picture on Facebook:
I told her that I thought it was an excellent idea...LOL
Okay, I'm off like a herd of turtles. I think I left a load of laundry in the dryer...yesterday. LOL Have a great night, be kind to one another.
