So, yup, I've been a busy lady of late. Besides working hard in clinic, decorating for Christmas, addressing Christmas cards to send out, I have progressed with some more knitting of a scarf.
Mr. Darcy is liking this alot. It's lambswool with dark brown mainly and avocado green flecks intermittently.
I last posted this 2 days ago:
and I felt I was getting nowhere BUT when I look at the pic I can see alot of progress.
Kinda like life. Someone told me long time ago and I certainly find it to be true: we don't live in the past, but we certainly have to take a look in the back mirror to see how far we've come to where we are going. That defines success. For success is not how rich we are or our place in society, it's how far one has come from where they started in the first place.
I've found that knitting has a very relaxing effect on me. Wish I had more time.
The scarf is cast on 21 stitches. It's a chunky yarn and I'm knitting every row for basically learning.
I know that I will knit, purl, knit, purl, another one after this.
On days like today, I think I will get alot done. It's pouring rain, cold and all I want to do is drink coffee and knit and watch a Christmas movie!
However, we have soooooooooooo much to do on the basement level to get Mr. Darcy's office set up.
He has quite the massive Presidential desk that is going to look great. He has been working to help me get it into a better living space.
And this day marks Mr. Darcy and my first month anniversary!!!
I ordered this ornament for our first tree. It's a 7 ft slim fir. The ornie was ordered from Personalization.com which is a GREAT gift site. They have wonderful deals and make the most memorable gifts of all you can imagine.
This ornie has our date on it.
I still am adding more ornaments today. I don't think I've ever waited so late to get my decorating complete but it's definitely surrounded with love and Christmas day is going to be special.
There are a few gifts under the tree. I still have wrapping to do. Mr. Darcy is quick. He wrapped his right away......smart guy!!!
Abbie's mat came in too.........she is already enjoying her Christmas giftie. Now she has a placemat to enjoy some people food for supper sometimes.
She especially enjoys potatoes and corn, and ham of late. :P
She is so funny this year. This is the first time she really has noticed a Christmas tree as I didn't have one last year. Occasionally at night she will walk over and put her nose up to an ornament like a deer.
And also she, for some reason, likes to take her food morsel by morsel over to enjoy eating it on the tree skirt.
I'm listening to Fox news this morning and see 2 really big storms coming through the north and south; hence, bringing our strong rains all day.
Everybody stay safe out there in your travels.
I see alot of the airlines in the north have canceled many flights and they are calling for alot of snow and they are expecting a white Christmas there.
Continuing on to finish decorating the tree,
