How was your weekend? The kids came home for an extended weekend so we could all celebrate Thanksgiving with my side of the family. If you've been reading this blog for a while, you know that we exchange Christmas gifts while we are together. So my manic gift knitting in September had a good reason to exist.
I had a great time seeing all of my family, eating fantastic food that I did not cook. I also shopped with my sister on Friday, braving the crazy crowds.
Yesterday I started decorating the house. I'm trying to strategically decorate with a one year old inquisitive cat in the house. I put up the smaller tree this year and picked through the ornaments. I chose ornaments she can't destroy or get hurt on. Also I picked some that if she destroyed I'd be okay with it. I did not put anything my mother made (too much emotional value).
She is still a little stinker and loves yarn and ribbons.
Even though I placed some of my holiday decorations out, I am still exhausted. My hands and wrists hurt (RA). So today is resting and relaxing.
I started another cowl, this one for my son for Christmas. I am nearing the end of knitting for others, I really want to knit for me and I know if I start I will not get the holiday knitting finished.
