Let me just say I was not ready to go to work today, not one bit. It was a shorter day thank goodness, tomorrow is going to be a 12 hour work marathon so I thought I might post a bit about the weekend and what has been happening.
More training for Little Buddy on his bike, he is almost getting it. Now he really just needs help with his right leg, the left is doing fine. My back however is not, all that bending and walking fast alongside the bike is not making my back happy.
My good friend Cathy dropped off this cutie pie to add to my sheep collection. She is all dressed up in her Christmas finery, isn't she adorable?
I am blessed by all the wonderful friends I have here at home and in blogland, I feel a bit spoiled!
The wee little cactus I rescued from my parents porch is so happy. She bloomed just in time for the Holidays. I think my Mother is sending me a message that all is well. It was a lovely surprise to see this plant so happy.
Another surprise was delivered to me on Christmas day. My SIL had found these little pasta angels that my MIL had made a few years back. She brought me one for my tree, a lovely reminder of a very special woman who I miss very much.
I finished my Hitchhiker gift for my friend Cathy, who gave me the sheep above, the weekend before Christmas. It got dropped off at her house just before the Holiday. I hope she likes it.
Cathy is tiny, so this one went very fast, only 25 teeth, made with Cascade Yarns Tangier and size 9 needles. I used about 1 1/2 skeins, and with the rest of the yarn I made this Queen Anne's Lace scarf.
I put the finished scarf in my gift bin for next year, I am trying to be more organized in 2016.
The next Hitchhiker is already on the needles, but not a lot of progress has been made. I hope to get to it after working this week and putting all my decorations away on the 31st. You know me I have to have everything neat and tidy when the New Year starts.
This last picture is to make you laugh. I left Little Buddy out in the family room while I was doing laundry the other day and this is what I returned to. Every sucker in his stocking was unwrapped and stuck to the floor. I had to be proud of his fine motor skills getting all of these unwrapped in record time, and of course he had to lick each one and leave it on the carpet. He makes me laugh.
Have a great day.
