Today is December 23. Do you want to know how I know that? Even if there weren't a calendar in the house, or my watch didn't have a date thingy on it (not that I can see it anymore)- I would know. This morning FC and I got up and started the Christmas cooking. He is being a nice guy and cooking the sausage meat for the stuffing, I have done the potato casserole, and the turnips and carrots, as well as the rice, onions and celery. I now understand why people drink, because up until now I have had no taste for it, but I really get it now.
It has not been without it's share of fun. Dearest Chris, wanted to know if this was Kitten-Chow:
To which KC is replying:
You see, KC knows how much she hates her picture being shown, and unfortunately Auntie Brigitte got caught up in this, but all in a good cause. Chris knows that KC has no nuts!
We have wondered, if perhaps KC has been moonlighting for Hallmark.
But no matter. I have shopped, wrapped, cleaned, and now I have begun a new project, Anne Hanson's Ice Fantasia in BMFA Laci, Winter Solstice- with wonderful icy beads.
We are also beginning our "Knit A Norwegian" KAL over at Ravelry on January 1st- so come and join us for that.
I'll leave you with this last Anne Taintor image, who just describes my life so well. If you want me, I'll either be under the Volkswagon, or curled up under the blanket with Mayhem. That is, if Chris is still speaking to me.
Merry Christmas, and may all your yarn dreams come true!
