I hope you all enjoyed your holidays and that you had a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
I certainly did enjoy my Christmas holiday. I was surrounded by my family and thoroughly enjoyed my time with my grandchildren. My youngest grandson was walking and his cousin, my youngest granddaughter is now walking as well. They grow so quickly! I want to hold onto them while they are little for a little longer. My youngest grandson, Ollie, was very ill with Pneumonia and a severe allergic reaction to the antibiotics they gave him for it. It was pretty scary there for a while but thankfully he is now well.
It has been bitterly cold in my neck of the woods. I make no pretense – I am not a big fan of Winter. I don’t mind the Fall and cooler temps, but I do NOT like it when it is so cold you don’t even want to take a shower! I am on a count down to Spring now. I have noticed each day that they are getting a tad longer and I am very happy about that.
I am still knitting away happily but not at the frenzied pace I was keeping prior to the holidays. Everyone I knitted something for was very happy with their gift which always makes me feel good.
Below are some pictures of my handiwork.
So now we are headed toward Spring and I can get outdoors again and enjoy my exercising! I much prefer a brisk walk or a hike outdoors rather than boring time on a treadmill!
Wherever you are, I hope you are facing your new year bravely and with hope for the future. Based on the news of late we all need to hope and try to make this old world we live in a better place.
Until next time, take care of yourselves…
