Is it just me, or does December seem like it was a year ago?!twinkle lights :: twinkle lights :: twinkle lights 😉
little boys :: three of us ♥ :: family (who are friends) :: holiday decorations :: knitting :: reading … and the start of this year’s amaryllis watch.
Sometimes I look back at these mosaics and think “oh, it wasn’t really as wet/cold/rainy/ as I remember”. This month, I thought “whoa, it really was wet, cold and rainy!”. Only two (yes, TWO) of those photos were taken outside – those gorgeous camellia blooms on the 22nd and the very foggy lakeview on the 31st.
Much of the knitting that shows up above is the ADVENTurer wrap, which is still, sadly, a WIP (and a long way from being finished). That photo on the 30th reminded me that I never did show y’all my finished holiday knits:clockwise from upper left – socks for the little boys (modeled on the 25th), a scarf with yarn from my MIL’s stash (recipient TBD), a hat for Marc and a cowl for Sara.
While my knitting was a little varied, my reading was not. I’ve been binging through Maisie Dobbs. In December I finished four – and so far this month I’ve finished three more. (which means I have just one to bring me to the end of the line where I’ll be waiting along with everyone else for the next book). I enjoyed them all and will probably put off that last one until I hear a firm date announced for the next one.
For once, the 1SE video I shared on Instagram doesn’t share a much different story. (except for that bit from the “old” Miracle on 34th Street which is one of my favorite scenes).
…and again, I’m struck by how much I love both these memory keeping/story telling formats.
Thank you for being a part of my story.
