Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! Dr. M & I took off for the Outer Banks on Wednesday & just got back last night. I have today (Monday) off from work & then head back tomorrow. Which means that (as usual) I probably won’t be awake to welcome the new year. That’s ok – it seems to make itself at home without my felicitations. Although come to think of it, maybe 2018 needed a little nudge from me so that it wouldn’t be so crazy pants.

We had two very excellent services at church today. Our pastor decided to have our candlelight service today instead of Christmas Eve & it worked out very well – packed house. It was lovely. This picture is from the nursing home before church – I loved this little vignette in the dining room.

I had to make an emergency yarn run in the morning, but this shawl was finished with hours to spare. Whew!
I think the recipients of my yarny gifts were quite pleased. That’s always gratifying.
After dinner & the gift exchange, we played Trivial Pursuit. I forgot how much I love this game. Dr. M & I won the first round – yay!

The blanket for my other nephew & his wife made it to South Korea! I breathed a sigh of relief – it would have been VERY SAD if it had gotten lost.
As we usually do, we spent some time with Dr. M’s side of the family. I didn’t take any photos of his Pop, and I snagged most of these from his cousin.

Off to Nag’s Head!
Thursday, December 27th
Dr. M took SO MANY great pictures. I may share more of them later this week, but for now I’m just including a sampling. These first ones are mine – I took a break from crocheting (something for me!) to walk on the beach.
Dr. M captured me in action.
That night we had the best pizza from Nags Head Pizza Company! The Mediterranean: mozzarella base with chicken, feta and finished with chopped spinach, roma tomato, cucumber & tzatziki. Pretty & tasty!

It was a beautiful day! We took a drive to Roanoke Island & had the obligatory seafood lunch (well, I had catfish), and then just drove around for a bit. Then I dropped Dr. M off & went shoe shopping. It was a good day.
I’ve been phoning it in on the old blog here for quite a while. I’m not planning to shut it down, and I still plan to post things, but I might not do P365 next year. Or if I do it I might do it very differently. I guess we’ll see what happens next week!
