A WHOLE LOTTA sock...
Going on the needles today as I watch Da Bears trounce the Vikings - socks for my partner in crime Antonella. After slacking off for three days, they are FINALLY going on the needles - Claudia Hand Painted Yarns "Roasted Chilies". I have five more pairs to make after these. FIVE. Yeah, I should really get going.
Once Spence FINALLY got to my house, we had a simple Thanksgiving dinner of lasagna and a salad. But first we had dessert. We LOVE pumpkin pie in The Chaos so that had to be eaten first!
After we rested a bit after our mini-feast, we went through all the boxes he left in his room. I made a special pile of them and we made quick work of going through it all. We came across wonderful things that triggered many happy memories of his grandparents, both gone now. Here we are in two of the many awesome hats from his hat collection. Mom and Dad always sent him various hats for birthdays and holidays and hats were his souvenirs whenever anyone traveled. Here, he wears the Davey Crockett 'Coon hat his Papa Bernie gave him, and I'm in a fancy Greek hat that Grandma Mary brought back from her Mediterranean Cruise. He took the furry hat back to UCLA.
It was a Happy Holiday Visit, and we got some sorting and organizing done too! What more could a Mom ask for...
Except maybe her Honey coming on December 14th for a Happy Holiday Visit and Honey helping sort and organize too! I'll have them both in for Christmas/New Year's so look forward to whipping The Chaos into a bit better shape while they are here. Looking forward to having access to strong, tall men. I'll have to cook and feed them, but small price to pay for all the much needed help they will provide.
