Merry Christmas! Well, Merry Two Days After Christmas. I trust we all made it through unscathed? I still have a few gifts to distribute (due to them not being here yet), but I think we had a pretty successful holiday. It was EXTRA low key – so much so that after Sunday there aren’t very many photos. Also, I haven’t read blogs since Wednesday, but I’ll get around to everyone today or tomorrow.
I made banana pomegranate apple bread! It was really good! Although I might leave out the pomegranates next time – they didn’t really add to the flavor & that’s a waste of pomegranates to me.
Here are my coworker gifts for this year – pretty cute! I had to learn Tunisian crochet to make the little scarves. It was ok, but I definitely need to get better at it before I would attempt anything larger.
I also finally made us one of the ornaments that I made last year. It is a little bit on the homely side. I really struggle with pairing colors – obviously! The biggest problem is that I LOVE that green, but it rarely actually looks very good mixed with other colors.
Dr. M made zucchini fries in the air fryer. They were really good!
The only picture today it this random selfie. I have no idea. Maybe I was checking that my hair wasn’t crazy? I look a little maniacal.
One of the lilies in my anniversary bouquet finally opened up. It’s gorgeous!
We did a very brief gift exchange with Daddy & Sue. On a whim, I had made a Mickey (Minnie?) Mouse outfit for Sue’s doll. They gave me this thermometer & could not have been more excited! A hypochondriac during a pandemic? DREAM PRESENT!
We took lunch to Dr. M’s dad, rambled around the county looking at sheep, and otherwise had a lovely quiet Christmas Day.
I’m trying to make a beanie, but this looks more like a place mat. It’s not becoming the expected bowl shape. I might have to frog it & try again with a smaller hook. Stay tuned!
