You’ll have to forgive me. I just love this photo. It makes me happy and peaceful.
The week or so leading up to Christmas was sunny and warm. So much so that I had the windows and doors open while I listened to classic Christmas songs and decorated the tree.
Christmas was spent quietly here at home with my ELPH and Fur Kids.
New Years Eve was spent at a good friends just down the street with most of the neighborhood in attendance. Lots of food, football, drinks and fireworks.
My sister ‘Sally’ and her family came to stay with us for the week between Christmas & the New Year. I love having them here. We managed to get a couple really nice days without rain. We all saw the new Star Wars movie.
Sis, Niece & a Friend of mine all went to Uptown Art in Clemson and painted. This is the fourth painting class I’ve done.
I am by no means extraordinarily talented. I couldn’t paint an original painting to save my life but I can copy the crap out of someone else work, LOL! I really enjoy these classes.
In Knitting News; I actually completed more, albeit small projects than I originally thought. How do I spend so much time knitting and have so little to show for it?
All but the headband were gifts and don’t I just look thrilled with my headband?
Our LYSO (local yarn store owner) has retired after 30 years. They tried selling the business and building with no serious takers. They liquidated their inventory and closed the shop. Which means my knitting group had to find a new place to meet each week. Luckily one of the ladies lives in a neighborhood with a Clubhouse Meeting Room. It’s usually used for HOA meetings or neighborhood parties. It’s turning out to be perfect. We are all very grateful to still be able to gather for our S&B :)
It’s been a rainy Fall & Winter so far and the Hiking Group has been washed out more times than not. For personal reasons I haven’t hiked with them yet this season. I hope to get a few in though. Since Christmas the weather has turned cold (as it should this time of year). Turns out I’m a fair weather shooter. If it’s cold, and windy I stay home from the Skeet Field and if I can get away with it, in my pajamas all day :D
