I feel so fortunate that this December weekend really doesn’t look much different than it might’ve in a different year. We were home. I knitted and caught up on the Modern Mrs. Darcy class I missed when the painting happened.
That simply perfect white pot is this year’s amaryllis (which my mom delivered to me at our cookie swap on Friday).
I took this photo yesterday and that little shoot is already noticeably a little taller.
Marc puttered. and made snacks.
We watched some college football. and a holiday movie (Marc tells me it was called Last Christmas) that I mostly slept through. We also watched the end of the latest season of GBBS and it was a surprise, and a surprisingly good season.
The sky put on some amazing sunset shows. This is from last night.
I got completely distracted by another Ankestrick design … backlist from spring, 2018. This is Noten (Ravelry link).
I love the colorwork motif and those increases just above the bust highpoint. I don’t love the stripes but that’s an easy change. …and I think this might be my next sweater!
In new news, Katie and her family brought home a puppy. He’s a chocolate lab named George. They’re all smitten. and I’m looking forward to meeting him on Friday.
I lit the fourth candle on the Advent wreath yesterday morning and remembered to take a photo this morning.All of the reflections this week ask about “seeing God’s light”. On this longest night, I’m especially grateful to have seen light in so many places. even some surprising ones.
Have you found light in a surprising place lately?
Wishing you a peaceful and light-filled week!
