Back, I hope, after a lengthy illness that just wouldn't quit! John and I were both sick since the start of the month. We are still working on getting totally over what amounted to acute bronchitis and pink eye on John's part, & a horrible case of the flu, a horrible sinus infection, & pink eye on my part!
Although I have not in any way given up on knitting, an Instagram kit-along brought me to the point of pulling out a cross stitch kit to work on! I am as surprised as you : ) It has been three years since I've stitched anything. I think we can all remember what ruined it for me back then. This is my first finish, a Bent Creek Zipper kit titled Winter House.
I hope that everyone had a happy & peaceful Christmas. John & I had a very low-key one. I didn't bake anything. We didn't have any gifts. Initially I wasn't going to put up any decorations at all, then I decided to decorate the skinny prim tree with my cross stitch ornaments. I also put a handful of small decorations on the mantle & leaned a prim sled against one of the walls. I did make our usual feast of turkey, ham, & potato salad which we enjoyed very much, & we also enjoyed Christmas movies throughout the season. Well, we started watching them in October actually. We have a LOT of Christmas DVDs ... lol!!!
January has flown by. Time flies when you're near death. I am very happy that tomorrow is February. One step closer to when we move again!!! Another rental for a year (ugh). Where are we going? Who knows. Most likely we will try to move back to Lexington or somewhere near there since I am still dealing with doctors and a dentist in the area. I know John would like to settle down in Tennessee again, & depending on how the medical/dental issues go we might end up renting a place there. I just know I am looking forward to settling down. 24 moves in 42 years. It's getting a bit old.
A belated Happy 2018 to you all!!!
