Is Christmas really over? I mean, after all those weeks--months, actually--of preparation and anticipation? Refer to my lovely planter decorations earlier in this blog and you might see, as I did, this sad view this morning is clearly indicating that the holiday season has indeed passed. Ravaged by the wind and ever-present squirrels, ornaments have disappeared, the juniper boughs are dried, disheveled, and missing! But wasn't it grand while it lasted? A house full of 10 loved ones for four days was a true blessing. Never mind the living room full of new toys, Baby B was most interested in playing with Max's toys which are laying about the house.
ever watchful gaze Baby B plays with the ball that lights inside when it is moved around. It was even more fun than the plasticware and measuring spoons he used as toys! OH my! I just noticed that if I look at this pic a certain way, the ball appears to be Max's tongue hanging out!! It's not!!
World ghan progress finds my needles heading north in Canada, a very enjoyable journey as I knit! See Canada up there? J decided it should be yellow with green USA and purple Mexico. Pretend it looks like a map, OK? The charting and color changes keep the stockinette stitch quite interesting.
I am trying to gather my thoughts about Christ the Lord Out of Egypt by Anne Rice. I am going to read the author's notes tonight, so am not ready to make any grand conclusions at this point. I do wonder, however, if the abundance of pre-publishing promotion sometimes leads to unattainable expectations on the part of readers. Could be.
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once.-Jennifer Unlimited-
