I’m Stiff

December 13, 2009

It’s really been cold for the past few days.  I even had to wear a coat.  Yesterday, it was so windy, we didn’t get very far.  Today, with no wind, we were out for quite a while.  I was really tired and achy when we got back.

I tried to finish my daughter’s calendar quilt this afternoon and had to stop.  Usually, I can sit there for hours, but now today.  So I decided it was time to put up the Christmas tree.  Well, I got Doug to bring it up from the cellar.  No matter what we did, we couldn’t some of the strings of lights to work.  Bummer.  We’ve got to find some more lights.  I never did get any ornaments on.

High High Tide

December 10, 2009

It rained all night.  The geese love it.  They can stand on the bulkhead and still be in the water.  Everything is sodden.  I didn’t get much of a walk because of it.  The weather was mild so Doug put out the Christmas lights on the deck.  I had been out shopping this afternoon and they were so pretty when I came over the bridge.  Of course, I forgot to stop at the bank so I have to run out again tomorrow.   It’s supposed to be a lot colder.

I have the kimono blocked.  Maybe tomorrow I can start putting it together.  I found some snaps and buttons.  Wal-Mart doesn’t have much at all anymore.  They only had one kind of snaps and they were black.  At least I have plenty of buttons.  In the meantime, I’ve started Heritage Booties with the same yarn.  I thought about making a hat to go with the kimono, but I really liked the booties.

I don’t understand why anyone would send an “Edible Arrangements”.  You have to eat that stuff right away.  You don’t know how long they were sitting around either.  You know, I don’t think I could eat it.  I’d probably sit it out back and let the birds eat.
