Well. I had a really nice Christmas post all worked out in my head. I even thought I could sneak in some time to write it, amongst the parties, guests, family, baking, cooking, eating, etc. I had a lot of stuff done ahead of schedule and was feeling pretty good about myself. Knitting, shopping, wrapping, baking, all done! All done early. Hey, look at me, I am ahead of schedule. Yes. Well. Never tell the fates that you are done and happy because they will certainly find some way of curing you of that little delusion. Someway like a giant cold that landed me SMACK in the middle of the intersection of Miserable and Useless on December 23. Which then turned into Sinus Infection Row on about the 25th. Now, today, I am just crawling out of the mire thanks only to the wonder that is antibiotics. I hope that your holidays have proved more healthful than mine, and that you were able to enjoy your celebrations without being too stressed out. For now, I am going to brew up some of the apple cider that I didn’t get to making, pull out some beautiful soft yarn and an easy pattern (Thermis, anyone?) and try to get some more rest. Cheers.
