Ready for . . .? I am ready for a walk but it is only 30 degrees right now so I will wait a few hours. I am happy I have wool hats and warm socks. I know that tomorrow is Christmas Eve and I know what we will eat and what time the worship service begins. I have not thought much about Christmas Day. It will be a quiet day with time for walking and knitting and reading. Here are a few joy sightings from the last week.
We did a front porch cookie exchange last week and my cookies have all been consumed. Think I might make another batch of these later today.
I have been working on more tea in the afternoons but it will be awhile before I make much of a dent in my tea stash.
I finished this book and had a great book chat with a friend about it yesterday. It took me a bit to get started (due to the lack of punctuation) but once I fell into the rhythm, I moved along quickly. I enjoyed this book (except for one chapter) and will be thinking about a few of the characters for awhile. I also finished an audio book last week and it looks like I might have two more finishes for 2020 which puts me over my 50 book goal. We picked our next buddy read and I found it at the library so I will begin that later today.
Here is a link to a conversation with the author of Girl Woman Other
We had a bit of snow on Monday night and it was cold enough that our small person was able to make a snow guy yesterday. He was so excited for the snow! Even the tinier person enjoyed watching him stomp around in it.
I am thinking about knitting ideas for 2021 and have begun to create a bingo card. And I unknit a shawl that was not making me happy at all. I love the yarn but have to admit that I am burned out on shawls.
I have been thinking about Christmas cards and woke this morning with an idea that just might work. It will be nice to actually use those Christmas stamps this year.
Would love to know what joy sightings are showing up for you this week.
