Merry day after Christmas!   Since I have no pride,  I will show you how Peter Kevin and I spent our day.Yes, we have matching Christmas pjs.  I bought them on Etsy and they made us laugh all day.

Elanor and I did all of the baking on the 23rd.  We baked only our favorite cookies.  They were delicious.  I made coquita which was also delicious but sweet enough that I can only have a small amount.
We had a quiet family Christmas Eve which included crackers with horns in them so we could all play music.  There was more laughter than music but it was all good.  The tree got decorated and looked festive and peculiarly ours.  There are some ornaments that the girls made 20 years ago but those are my 
favorites. 
Peter Kevin and Elanor and I got up and opened our presents while we ate babka and drank hot cocoa (not on my diabetic list but I gave myself permission to have a few days of cheating).  Pk got a weather station which he cannot wait to get set up outside.  El spent the day playing with …

Well, it snowed today.  Not much, just enough to remind us that it’s winter.   Or will be soon enough.  Peter Kevin used a broom to clean off the front steps.  We got up and went to the doctor’s.  When we came out of the office, the snow was falling so beautifully.  We went to get our Christmas tree.  We won’t decorate the tree until Christmas Eve but it smells so nice.

This is one of the smaller trees we’ve had.  It is by no means a small tree.  It is beautifully shaped and will hold our treasured ornaments beautifully.  (And no, as you can see, we have not painted the living/dining/kitchen room yet).  
Peter Kevin is still looking for a job.  He had an interview with the City of Philadelphia last week and is waiting to hear from them.  It’s for a 9 month contract but that seems to be the way it goes.  No permanent jobs, just contract work.  The good thing is, he is home to drive me to the station in the morning.  It’s dark in the morning now and my eyesight is just not good enough to …

A funny thing happened yesterday.  Not funny haha but funny, “huh”.
I was watching Zumbo’s Just Deserts (amazing competition and mindless) and I happened to think of my niece who is getting married in January.  She is wearing a simple dress.  I texted her mother and offered my Evenstar as an addition to the wedding outfit.  Then I realized I didn’t have a photo to send.
I remembered the Blog.  I didn’t remember the year I finished the shawl but I knew it was around Memorial Day.  I started paging through the posts looking for a photo.  I finally found one and sent it off (she was thrilled and said Yes!).  In the meantime, I stopped to read through some posts.  I’d forgotten some things that I had written about and I enjoyed the photos.  
And I had a thought.  Why not start writing the blog again?  And so here I am.
I’ve just turned 60, (yes, I KNOW!) and in August I decided to stop coloring my hair.  I had it cut short
And by now, most of the color is gone.  I got a cut yesterday and I thi…
