Happy New Year!! I think my pre holiday post was prescient. I actually had time to post but didn't have energy or the will to do much more than stare off into space and watch old videos. Yes, we had the Holiday Plague here. Pk started it in early December and managed to spread it to me and Elanor just in time for Christmas.
It wasn't helped by the fact that it was 75 F on Christmas Eve. We went outside around 9 pm to see Santa ride by and we were in t shirts and quite comfortable outside. Quite a shock to our systems since we are usually bundled in all the sweaters.
So, most of our holidays were spent in pajamas. I knit a small bit but not enough energy led to many days of just sitting and sleeping.
There were amazing handmade presents.
Peter Kevin made this ball winder for me. What's that you say? It doesn't look like a ball winder? Well, it's one of those wooden ones that makes large cakes of yarn. It's in pieces because one of the gears broke in the process of putting it together so it's being re cut. The large gear has spokes that are sheep. It's very cool.
It's very "organic" looking but I love the bits of orange and the sparkly bits that show up.
We had a quiet New Year's and were asleep before 12. We're back to work and moving back into our routines. Christmas will be put away this weekend. I will enjoy the space when the tree comes down, I miss the colorful lights.
How were your holidays? Were they festive? Any resolutions? (Or as one of my clients says, "revolutions")? I am going to be kinder to myself and try to take better care of myself. Nothing too strict.
So, have a happy and healthy 2016!
