Christmas weekend

Sunday, December 23, 2012

Well, the world did not end on Friday, but my car died; I think the Mayans had something to do with putting the computer system in it, lol! I went to move it for the plow that morning, and it would not start. Can't get it to jump start either, so I am pretty sure the problem is electrical or the computer system. I will have to have it towed to the dealership to get it repaired, but I will wait and have that done after Christmas.

It could have been worse; at least the car was at home when it happened and I was not stranded somewhere. And we didn't have that much snow; it's not plowed in so much that it can't be gotten out.

We had our family Christmas last night; it was very nice; got a lot of nice gifts, including a lot of yarn, and one gift that will be late that my mom ordered for me, a hand cranked knitting machine! I can't wait til I can try it out! I should be able to make many things on it that I can't do on the Knifty Knitter looms.

I was very tired when I got home last night; as much as I enjoyed my family it was nice to be back home in bed, in my pjs, with my two kitties snuggled up besides me. But at least I have this week off from chemo, so I have a chance to build up my energy a bit.

I went to church this morning too, very nice service today. Did a chair workout after I got home. Going to relax with what is left of this day but first I need to sort out all my gifts I received yesterday and get them put away.

Now that my gifts have all been given out, I can share pics of a couple of things I made. I could not show you earlier because some of the people I was giving them too sometimes read my blog.

These are counted cross stitch book marks.


These are catnip gingerbread men toys. The heads turned out kind of funny looking but I don't think the kitties care, lol!

    Hi Shari...so good to see you again. Glad that you had a nice Christmas. Your x-stitch bookmarks are lovely. I used to make those when I x-stitched, too, but haven't done it in a few years.

I'm going to try sparking again and see if I can take off more weight. Seems like when I track, I go in the right direction.

My second novel has been published and is doing very well. A totally different book than the first one and people really seem to like it. I'm now working on the third. Keeps me busy and my hands out of the cookie jar.

Hope the rest of the holidays are good ones for you. Wishing you a happy and healthy 2013.

    You do nice work! Those cat toys would cost plenty in the pet store! And the bookmarks are lovely. Chris emoticon

    Those are both wonderful gifts! The bookmarks are beautiful and the gingerbread men are so cute and ready for cat teeth to bite in. hehe

I'm glad you had a great time with your family. Enjoy your peaceful week.

    I love the bookmarks! Was thinking the car might be a dead battery. Hope it's something simple and inexpensive to
repair.
