2017 Project 365 – Week Forty-nine

Did you know that Christmas is in LESS THAN TWO WEEKS??? What the actual heck. All of you people who were expecting (and possibly fearing) crocheted gifts will just have to be disappointed. Or ecstatic. I know I’m both! Ah well, time waits for no procrastinator. Or something like that.

Anyway, this week has a theme – Christmas, snow, crochet. Sorry – we’ll get to more interesting things at some point!
Sunday, December 3rd          
The moon! These shots were taken after midnight – early in the morning.

I decorated our tree! The first baubles I always put on any tree are the antique ones from Dr. M’s grandmother. You can see two of them in the bottom left of this collage. And then there is our usual silliness.

And because I couldn’t decide, here are moon pictures taken in the evening.

Monday, December 4th                       
There is a meme on Facebook about these trees, so Dr. M pulled ours out. It was his mother’s.

I’m making….something. I don’t think it’s Jane Curtin. Hmmm.

Tuesday, December 5th                                        
Penguin down! We’re not sure WHAT they were getting up to out on the porch. If it involved eggnog, they didn’t offer us any.

Wednesday, December 6th                                
I stopped by to visit Daddy & Sue after choir practice.

Thursday, December 7th                             
I had another follow-up appointment with my surgeon’s office (it was fine). I was taking a picture of my glasses, but my goodness look at that hair! There’s some serious pouf going on there. Also, it might behoove me to iron my clothes every now & then.

Friday, December 8th                     
It snowed! It mostly didn’t stick to the roads – just lovely big flakes that covered the grass & trees.

So this is what I was making! For those of you (like me) who’ve never seen the movie, this is Poppy from the Troll movie. This was challenging to make, but fun.

Saturday, December 9th                         
More snow. More crochet. I think I walked outside to check the mail & that was it. Lovely day!

I’m still behind on reading blogs. I think we’re just going to have to accept that at this point I’ll probably read them (I’m too nosy to not read them) & not comment until I get caught up.

How was your week?


  1. cold weather and open house. now that that's done I'm moving back in to my studio room. today I cleaned all the windows and screens.

  2. oh, and I saved one of those pictures of the moon for future.

  3. Christmas in only two weeks? Please say it ain't so!

  4. About 8 inches here in NEO. Ugh.

  5. I made one of those ceramic Christmas trees back in the 70s. I don't know what happened to it. It must have been lost to one of our moves. I'd get it out if I still had it. :) That snow was pretty, wasn't it?

  6. Sorry about your snow. ;^/ Still in the 60's here.

  7. What the actual heck...I'm with you! And as far as the rest of the week goes, it sounds a lot like yours. Minus the snow and crochet. And minus the penguins and the antique Christmas baubles. Well, and minus the moon pics and the ceramic tree. Oh heck, let's just admit that you're waaaaay ahead of me.

    Love your pics! Someday, I'll post mine from the last few weeks.

  8. My mom made one of those ceramic trees. It's a pretty big one, and white. I love it, but hadn't gotten it out yet this year. The mood just hadn't struck. Until now.... See me heading to the closet? Thanks for the nudge!

  9. Love the last beanie on the left, the wavy one, and your Christmas decorations!


Thanks for stopping by - I'd love to hear what you have to say!

2023 Project 365 – Week Forty-nine

I’m still feeling the disconnect of world events (& events here at home), & all the perky “Reason for the Season” in the air right n...
