I had a brief break in my day today as suddenly five of the little ones I work with have fallen ill. They are in three different homes so something is going around. I want no part of it, so I came back home for an hour or two to get a few things done. Hmmm.... with so much to do this time of year I decided to blog? Really, I must have my head examined.
I can't stop taking photos of my Christmas cactus or my beautiful poinsettias. They are just so stunning.
A few more Santa's from my mantle. The last Santa, the blurry one, was the very first Santa I bought. He started the whole Santa craze. I found him at a wonderful art show up in Roger's City, MI, where my parents used to live. They had a big Nautical Festival and art show every summer. When my big boys were little we went up every summer to visit and have fun. The carnival rides cost about a million dollars and looked very unsafe, yet we went every year we could. The whitefish sandwiches were delicious! Roger's City is located way up in northern Michigan, right on Lake Huron.
Yup, more crocheting. This time with gift yarn in deep, rich colors. Of course I had to go out and buy more contrast yarn this past weekend. I am thinking of all different ways to join these circles. I hope to come up with a much better solution than the cowls. I have 20 circles made so far, with many more in my future. I love this mindless crocheting. I made about five of them watching the Alabama election last night. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would ever be glued to the TV over an election in Alabama. The results give me hope........
Look who got new cozy jammies. He is a very loud, growling dinosaur. There is just nothing cuter than a little one in cozy pj's. Well unless they are constantly growling at you!
Okay, enough mid week playing. I have to get back to work!
