Moving along slowly

I'm slowly making progress with my sore toe and have been able to wear sandals this week. After a couple of hours on it I have to take a break. I'm sitting in the recliner preparing to watch Miracle on 34th St., my all time favorite holiday movie and knit. I'm making steady progress on my Christmas knitting and may get my primary projects done by the holiday.

I'm decorating little by little and playing some holiday music to try to get in the mood. We are still above normal temps for this time of year so feels more like spring than winter. We had one fire in the fireplace over Thanksgiving thanks to a rainy day but suspect that may be the last one for a while.

I've gotten most of my shopping done except for stocking stuffers. I know we should shop locally but I much prefer doing it online and having everything show up at my door. I usually give the UPS delivery people a workout but have cut back quite a bit this year. It still should be a nice Christmas together. As my darling daughter pointed out, we are lucky to already know that the most precious gift is our time together. May we never take it for granted.

Glad to hear you're starting to feel better. I've got some of the knitting done as well; but not a whole lot.

A boy from France brought it as his gift exchange gift. He wrote on the side of it that "the name is Robert, I am a nice young clean cactus and I even do the dishes, please adopt me" Very cute.

How can you restrain yourself to decorating a bit at a time? I always want it all, right now! And then I want to go out and get more. For a few years, when I decorated the tree, I would fit in every ornament I owned, then go out and get one more boxfull. Nothing succeeds like excess!

Glad to hear the toe is getting better--and definitely enjoy the kicking back and knitting time. It really is the best part of having a sore foot for me!!
