Today the last of my company leaves when our son heads back to State College. Our daughter and son in law left on the 2nd. I promptly fulfilled my wild dreams of putting away the Christmas decorations. If you are wondering, yes it was exactly as I imagined. Today the rest of the 'piles' will disappear and I can finish up laundering sheets and towels.
I'm planning a big pot of turkey noodle soup for dinner. My kitchen is going to smell good!
Along with tidying up my spaces, I've been catching up on paperwork and hopefully all of your blog posts by this evening. Having a house full demands a lot of my brain space. I enjoyed having my family here and I'll enjoy having some quiet down time to spend reading my books. My knitting has been beckoning me as well.
I started back to work and had a fantastic time with the toddler. She is such a funny girl and delights in simple games. We had fun near her nap-time and her laughter was infectious. Ah, the two year old is heading to preschooler age which is FUN.
Above is my engi sweater and I'm slowly making some progress in the fair isle knitting. The lavender is NOT part of the sweater, that is a provisional cast on to be removed later on in the pattern. I believe that lavender color is throwing off all the colors. I should have used a neutral scrap yarn. Live and learn.
Yesterday after more than 15 photos of me trying to capture the ever moving Holly. I managed three good ones. She seems to have bonded with me more because of her 'beloved' going to Italy. She loves a pet and a 'peek' game. She also knows the phrase 'Where's your mousey? Go get your mousey!'. Being a cat she sometimes gets her mouse (she has many). I know she knows because of the way she swishes her tail and looks at me.
I hope you had a glorious week as well!
