The Season

So, Ann Curry began a "movement" on twitter: 26 Acts, where you are encouraged to do 26 random acts of kindness in honor of the 26 victims of the Newtown murders.  I got to it sort of late, but am really enjoying coming up with ways to randomly surprise people.  And I'm going to try to get to 27, as the shooter's mother was as much a victim as anyone at the school.

Things are proceeding well here for Christmas.  For as long as I can remember, I've liked to wrap one present a day leading up to Christmas.  It extends the spirit, and it's fun to watch the stack of gifts grow every day.

Hannah's new kitten is doing well.  He was "in quarantine" for a week, so yesterday was the first day he was allowed to walk around in the house.  He's very interested in Riley (the feeling isn't mutual), and is of great interest to Finn.  Unfortunately, it's hard to get a clear picture of the little guy --- he's surprisingly fleet afoot.  So here's one from when she got him.  He hasn't changed that much:

I am knitting --- is anyone else?  I'm working on a wrap/stole-type thing, probably for myself.  I started a pair of wristers last night, but wasn't happy with how they were going, so unravelled.  I'll pick another project tonight or tomorrow.

You know, if the world doesn't end.

  1. Knitting? What is knitting?
    I still am in a bit of denial that Christmas is a few days away, although I think I have all the work stuff completed that I can complete, and at least some of Tim's gifts are 'wrapped' (we 'wrap' in fabric that we can recycle each year. And it makes for sad packages, imho).

Nostalgia

Since being laid up with these infernal ribs, I've had time to reflect on a few things.  First, Monday is the worst day to try and get ...
