It has been weeks since I have been here, and I was wondering what happened. Its not like I'm going anywhere.
In hindsight, I realized I have been dealing with family emergencies, large and small. It's the small ones that take the most time.
Our microwave died, after 40 years of service. I spent hours trying to figure out what to buy to replace it, without being able to go out and look at what was available. In the end, I used my tape measure to make sure it would fit, crossed my fingers, and ordered.
Here is the new one, all shiny in its new home. I have no idea how to use it, so a large amount of trial and error is involved.
I am now supervising remote kindergarten for my grandson, at least once a week. Nothing gets done that day, and sometimes, I get a desperate text at 7:05, asking if he can come a second day in the week. We made a lovely Christmas tree out of construction paper, yesterday.
You can see in the background what a mess the table is by the end of the day. I cheated and ran the stack of tree cutouts through the sewing machine, to hold them together so he could glue them.
It was Christmas hat day, yesterday, so Doug modelled the hat we found.
This cookie didn't make it into the mail. We needed to do some quality testing.
The knitting continues, and I managed to finish a pair of socks and a scarf. They were washed today, and will be ready to go by morning.
I seem to have a blue theme going.
The granddogs requested new bandanas. I don't use my serger enough and had to remember how to get good results on bias edges.
Two Christmas ones and two bright ones to wear in the snow, I think they will like them.
Hopefully, tomorrow, I will get everything boxed up and get Canada Post to come and pick them up.
