Magic (posted by Ann)
Buy a $.99 bath puff, cut it open, cut off a length and tie a knot in it - and you have the best yarn ball holder ever. It keeps your center pull ball from unraveling on the outside. Magic, I tell you, magic.
So, Lani, do you remember this? I finally got it framed and hung in my guest bath, and it looks wonderful. I'm the grateful recipient of your needlework, so if you have any more you want to send this way my door is always open!
And finally, here is what Don got me for Christmas. He had an artist in China copy my favorite Toulouse-Latrec painting, and it is back from framing. Isn't it wonderful? I know everyone is relieved that I am using this to replace the fish. No one loved my fish but me, so he is now relegated to France.
In other news, we are all doing well. I will be home this week since I leave for India on Friday. I have changed my travel plans, though, and won't be going to Australia this time around, so I'll be home again the following Thursday in body at least. I expect it might take my mind about 24 hours to catch up with me.
Don is fine, and the airplane should come home next week. Of course, they found more stuff to be done during the annual, so it's not quite done yet.
Steve has finished his finals for the first semester, and has a little bit of a break this weekend before he has to start up again. His load will belighter next semester, which he's happy about. I don't know how he lucked out but he has an open slot first period. That's perfect for study, or for making sure you have homework done - lucky guy, huh!
What's up at your house?
