Last Friday…

… before Christmas.  Little reality check there for yours truly. 

A sweet package arrived from the North yesterday.  I wish I’d gotten photos of the dogs’ gifts, but instead, I’ll just tease you with a promise of photos of them wearing their goodies soon. 

Squee!  My own Lady February Sweater, and I didn’t even have to knit it!  (Bad hair day, but y’all are looking at the sweater, right?)  I love the color, the buttons, how soft it is…  Thank you, Michelle!

There’s a shot of the back.  I grabbed a phone call while MJ was taking photos, and she thought she was soooo clever to just snap one of the back while I was talking.  Isn’t it beautiful?  I’m glad I couldn’t find the 3/4 sleeved top I wanted to wear under it this morning; it’s toasty warm with the short sleeves.  Just right for this cold, nasty mist we have going on right now.

So, what’s up for this last weekend before Christmas for you?  My sister and I will head up to have lunch and do a little shopping with Rosanne tomorrow, and then I’m going to a girls’ dinner tomorrow night with another handful of friends, including one from out of town.  Sis is driving, so I’ll be dragging my last knitted by Christmas item along for some serious progress.  You’ll hopefully have an FO report early next week, and then I need to tackle that Special Olympics scarf, and then, something for me before I settle into some knitterly goodness projects.

What’s on your agenda?

    Well, first off, after I finish this cup of coffee, shoveling…. Sadie was almost pushing snow with her chest when she wen out first thing this morning. The “clean before the storm stared” sidewalk is measuring in at between 5.5 and 5.75″ and it isn’t going to stop anytime soon. I think I’ll let Sadie “help” shovel!
    I was planning on doing the last of my shopping and mailing today and then finishing up my cleaning the house. Of course, today is the day Hubband is to take my car in for an oil change and I am supposed to have the truck!

    Do have a wonderful weekend with the girls. You deserve it. As for me, I will baking, wrapping (uh-oh, I must finish the gifts before they’re to be wrapped:), cleaning, laundry and attending a church concert performance by the kid. Sleep would be nice but is not an option this weekend……

    What a special sweater. Every time I see one, I’m reminded that I WANT one. After the New Year…I’m going to have to CO.

    Have a wonderful weekend. I’m working tonight, Saturday, Sunday, Monday. And Monday I’ll be there way past midnight. It will all slow down in a week or two. At least thats what I keep telling myself.

    Wow – lots to catch up on; I have had a self-centered week trying to get SOMEBODY to do their jobs and value my car, fix the payoff on the old loan, and give me a new loan so I can find a new car… All successful, so I can move on to getting ready for the holidays now. Merry Christmas!
