Merry Christmas, all!! (posted by Ann)
I know, I know, nothing for two weeks and then two in two days. What can I say?
You know about Tater and the squirrels, right? How he's so wild about chasing them that he jumped out of the car at 45 miles per hour to get one? Well, here's why.
This guy is so cheeky that he won't back off when you have a flash going off about a foot from his face. Tater goes nuts when he sees him, and tries to jump through the window to get at him.
And here's what I really wanted to show you - I don't know how this happened, but you know the ball winder you sent me for Christmas, Lani? What a great gift, by the way. Just take a look what Don and Steve got me that goes with it perfectly . . .
I can't believe it - complimentary presents, and they weren't even coordinated! Turns out the guys went to the local yarn store and Gene Ann directed them toward a swift for me. Look at my neat little center pull ball out of the Khroma DK Clementine.
It's lovely yarn, 50% baby alpaca and 50% merino. Just lovely. I'm on to swatching between watching Christmas movies and cooking.
We're having a great Christmas. Don is happy because we found a new gadget for his airplane that will allow him to use his cell phone on the ground to get flight clearance, Steve's got a lot of money, a new crash, and a whole box of Frango mints all to himself. I have a crystal pitcher from Mom, and the nicest surprise from Don. Remember when I was so thrilled to have seen my favorite Impressionist piece, "In Bed" by Toulouse-Lautrec in Paris? Well, Don had an artist in China paint me a copy. It's gorgeous!
Hope you are well and not working too hard if you are working. I'm off to make fried chicken for Christmas dinner. That's what I get for letting Don pick the meal!
P.S. Don asked me who the "hot chick" on the blog was. I couldn't think what he meant, and then I looked at my last post. I see a sweater, he sees a redhead. Humph.
