Cleaning out photo's on the phone and sending them to my computer and came across a few I thought I'd share. Not sure if I have before?
This was a gift we bought ourselves some time back and we've really enjoyed it. And oh, how I wish we could sit outside now and enjoy our cocktails. But, not until Spring, way too cold here in Central Ohio for that now. Still though, looking at the fire, the nice warm fire makes me smile. That's hubby's hand showing you his perfect Martini....I only make perfect ones you know!
This is our Christmas present to us. The large tv and cabinet. We had to clean out the entertainment center that I loved, just simply couldn't get a bigger tv, which we needed, as neither of us can read the print without getting up from the chair. AND the new smart tv's...so much easier to use. Who knew you could have a fire place with lovely music on the tv...I didn't until my youngest nephew's wife, Heather showed me. We enjoyed this throughout the Christmas visit when our darling daughter was home visiting!
Christmas morning traditional brunch includes cinnamon rolls, Mandarin oranges, egg casserole and of course Champagne. I make egg casseroles for everyone in the family so they can take it home on Christmas Eve and have for their breakfast in the morning. Long standing tradition, and when Mom was alive she made homemade rolls to go with it. In recent years, I've found out Mama Mimi's (take and bake pizza) makes homemade cinnamon rolls twice a year so we order a pan for everyone to go with their eggs. Hubby and Darling Daughter always go out to the deck when opening the champagne to see how far they can get the cork to fly, lol
Absolutely terrible picture hubby took last night, but I thought I'd share anyway. No sure why my hair looks so bad..........eh. The purpose though of the picture is to show you my new light...see the thing around my neck? It's a very light weight and flexible light to help with knitting and crocheting. I ordered this Minger light from Amazon at the suggestion of Sandie P (check out her blog). I made a comment a few days ago the difficulty with some yarn and some colors working at night and Sandie told me she used one of these lights and it really helped. I followed the link she sent to Amazon and order pronto! They have both one you put batteries in and one that you can re-charge. I opted for the re-chargeable one, which I believe is what she also has. Not that you can see much, but the item in my hand is a new afghan. It's a knitted ripple and I'm currently using a blue variegated. I'm fighting a bit when trying to K2tog, even though I don't knit tightly, the yarn is quite course, but hopefully it will solften with working with it and when it's laundered and blocked. Looked last night in my stash for a brown variegated I thought I had to strip with it, but couldn't find it; so will have to look again.........if no luck....will pull out some other colors. Stay tuned.
