My apologies to those of you who have been following my posts and also to those of you in my online linkshell . I have fallen into a creative hole and it looks like I am going to have to knit myself out of it. Yes, I said knit. Many years ago, actually this was pre-children, I used to knit and crochet a lot. And as usual, I have 3 different projects started at the same time. When I finish I will post pictures.

Christmas was a nice lazy day for us here. We had ham for dinner and Erin made garlic mashed potatoes. We now have ham in the freezer and I have a hambone cooking on the stove for split pea soup tonight.

I did want to explain the "wolf" comment though. I am part Cherokee and born to the wolfclan. The clan passes through the mother's line of descent so my children are also wolfclan.

Happy and Prosperous New Year to all of you!

Busy November

OK, so I got trucked off during the month of November and didn’t get a lot posted. The girls seem to have settled in and the 2 sets of cats are working out their differences. Ha Ha! I broke up a cat fight this weekend and after finding blood on the kitchen cabinet went to see just who was bleeding. I never did find a wounded kitty though. However in the process I did manage to get bit. Had to soak my hand in Epsom salts water to take the swelling down and no I’m not going to the doctor with it. I put tea tree oil on it to kill any bacteria and that was that. Hand looks almost as good as new today. It’s turning colder finally around here and Sean turned my furnace on when he came for Thanksgiving. He and his family are moving to the Boulder area this week and my daughter is going with them to help them move and navigate. I guess I’m going to learn to drive to Boulder next vacation. Oh well, that’s the price of having kids grow up. Perhaps this weekend after all the dust settles I can get the final weeding done in the garden, I would like that. No shopping you ask? Not me. I never venture out on Black Friday. And very rarely do I shop at all. I pretty much have in my head what the Christmas gifts will be and that’s it. Get them and go. Avoid the malls at all costs. And that’s not because of the economy, that’s just me.
