I’m taking some time away to enjoy what’s left of the year with my family and friends. May your holiday season be filled with love and laughter.
- If you’d like to read news that makes your cry…tears of joy, I recommend Daily Good. Another good one is yes! magazine.
- I picked up a like new wool and cashmere coat from the thrift store last week for a whopping $5.
- Did you know that miseltoe is a parasite?
- St. Lucia day came and went without us doing a thing.
- After writing this post, my brother asked me to knit him a hat for Christmas, and I decided to knit a few more for gifts. Of course.
I don’t have anything profound to say about the tragedy that occurred Friday in Newtown. I don’t usually blog about such events because there are so many who are able to express themselves far more eloquently than I ever could. I will say that I think that December can be a hard month for those who are already close to the edge. There are a few local nonprofits that are helping the families there at this time, if you’re interested in how you can help.

- It’s finals week for me. Looking forward to getting to read for pleasure for the next few weeks!
- I sent out my holiday cards… while it’s still the holiday season!
- My family and I held a hero making competition yesterday. We gave our creations names. My favorite was Robin’s which he called “The woolly mammoth”. Mine was called “Your mother!”
Spinning! Though I recently ranted on twitter about lack of space and money for new hobbies. I still want to learn.
