We had our Christmas cantata this morning, and then Dr. M & I went out for a late brunch, and then I crocheted all afternoon into evening. I am so sleepy that I can hardly hold my eyes open. I’m pretty sure that at this point I couldn’t legally be held accountable for whatever I write here – right?
Sunday, December 9th
I shared some pictures from Sunday last week – we got a LOT of snow! It was all very exciting, but it meant that a brunch that we had scheduled with some friends got postponed & Dr. M & I had to eat the French Toast casserole all by ourselves. Darn.
Cardinals are silly. Plus a woodpecker!
THE LAST SQUARE! (In this colorway…)
Late that night I figured out how to remotely change our office voicemail to say that we were closed on Monday. I was pretty chuffed.

The neighbors went sledding.
And a squirrel got thirsty.
And The Moon!

I was almost done piecing all the squares together (there were four more to go), and I posted this picture in my crochet Facebook group asking for some advice about the border. Advice was given & I used it – but you don’t get to see the result until next week because I want to take the blanket to work & get a good picture of it. That’s right – this blanket is TOTALLY DONE!

Quite an eclectic crew out back today!

We watched my favorite Christmas show – Olive the Other Reindeer.
Saturday, December 15th
Our 28th anniversary! We had a really quiet day – our favorite kind. I finished the aforementioned blanket & laid out the squares for the next one.
This is our last week of work before we’re off for Christmas – a thought that simultaneously thrills & terrifies me. There is much to accomplish in the next 10 days! Are you ready?
