Oh look. Christmas cookies at the bakery. I did not eat any. This does not mean I didn’t have cookies at a dear friend’s house last night. I had gingerbread and it was divine. There wasn’t even any frosting on the gingerbread men and I ate more than I should have. I’m going to make gingerbread people this week for the holiday.
Oh look, Christmas sock yarn. Wheee. I had to order it on ebay. I’ve cast on but was too crazy busy to knit for two days……
What? Two trips home ( to the old neighborhood I mean) and back in two days. Volunteering in the Operating room for 4 hours yesterday with a new vet, Board Meeting that was long Tuesday night, Seeing sweet mom (more on mom) and a holiday gathering with two dear ones from High school …whirlwind. (both my friends got knitted cowls that I had made this year and they loved them)
We do pass our old house and it is awesome to see new decorations on the fence and lights in the front trees that we never decorated. I don’t feel. one. pang . to . go . back.
Mom got her dinner tray while we visited. I fed her again. If there is one food you cannot eat, smell or see others eat what is it? For me it is egg salad. And that’s what mom had for dinner last night. Talk about a work of mercy! I tried not to gag. She was so happy to be eating it that I got past it.
( for those who asked, I knit about 4 inches in the cuff pattern of my last socks)
