Merry Christmas Everyone!

As my soon to be 19 year old snoozes - I'll be surprised if he is up by 2:30 pm today, I have already worked out to a new exercise video (Denise Austin - sent by a relative but new to me!) -- and now, time to update this relic of a blog: Despite the carnage at the manger,
caused by you know who...
We had a lovely Christmas Eve.... And we took what we thought was the most amazing photo, until I finally got a look at it a few hours later...
um, yeah....tie tied in a very unusual manner, mass of extension cords, a stunned Pumpkin and barely visible crooked tree... So, a typical photo for us ;-) Hope your holiday was just as lovely!!

For Those Who Are Curious..

..if cats recognize someone they have not seen in many months, in this case 4 months. Here Pumpkin is with my son who is home from college. Took video of when she first saw him walk in the house, but this is even cuter :)

My New 'Do

A hair stylist straightened my hair the other day and I was blown away!!  Picked up a straightening iron and I am going to do my best to see if I can get it to look even halfway as well as she did! My hair hasn't looked this shiny since I was 5.

It Can Get Very Addicting!

I am speaking about my newest hobby, loom knitting. My bloggy friend Rebecca, understanding that I was unable to knit the regular way, recommended loom knitting to me. She has created a monster!

After a first failed practice session


I was on my way to making a knit hat.


It came out quite nicely.

If someone like me, who is horrible at following patterns, is able to complete a project like this, anyone can do it! I am now working on a scarf to go with my hat. If you have carpal tunnel or other hand issues, it's best not to go all out gangbusters on it.

Added bonus: I find that the repetiveness of it makes for a  good distraction to the daily stresses of life once you get in the zone.
