I hung the last photo on the Advent tree this morning.
We are still waiting for the amaryllis to bloom.
The house smells wonderful.
Holly’s afternoon walk was delightfully pleasant with breezy blue skies.
I’m especially grateful for yesterday’s visit with my sister. We had lunch and watched White Christmas (an annual tradition that took a little break the past two years).
Yesterday was even more special because – in an “abundance of caution” – we aren’t going to the big family gathering next week. We are still planning tomorrow with Katie and her family and we’ll get together with them again before the new year. Otherwise, my calendar is pretty much empty. so of course I’m thinking about all the books I could read.and maybe even knitting one more sweater?Those are size 8 needles. I knitted more since the photo and I might be ready to separate the sleeves tonight – while we watch Love Actually (yep, we saved the best for last!)
I’m also thinking about Finishing Regular and want to check off a few more boxes (Ravelry, Goodreads, my book journal, One Little Word) so I can really say So Long 2021 next Friday! We’ll see. that stack of books and sweater knitting are pretty enticing.
Wishing everyone the best weekend (and the best Christmas, if that’s your thing) available!
