Another thing I do by the fire at the Woodstock Inn is knit. Here is my latest project.

It's a lace stole in my favorite color.

One of the best thing about the Woodstock Inn is their huge fireplace. And one of my favorite things to do there is to get up early, when it's very quiet and drink coffee next to the fire. Sometimes my sister or husband joins me. So that's what I'm doing right now: blogging, drinking coffee and soon I'll be working on the crossword puzzle. It looks like a difficult one.

So we made it home from vacation but 2/3 of our luggage did not. Fortunately they came this morning, although not soon enough because Robert had to go to work wearing socks with his sandals.

The picture above is the completed nose print pendant that I had made. It took a long time to receive, but I'm so glad I did it. It is so Java's nose, and I'll always have it.

All good things must come to an end, and by that I mean my vacation.

So I am blogging from somewhere in the sky between Philadelphia
and Baltimore. We're on our way to Disney World!

Lots going on here. Sunday I came home and found a watery drop of blood outside Gary's litterbox. So off to the vet we went yesterday. He has bladder stones and is very uncomfortable. He got an antibiotic shot, and a complete food change. The good news is that he seems to enjoy the new food. It's always difficult if they don't. The food is what's going to create an acidic environment in his bladder to dissolve the existing stones and prevent future stones from forming.

Today I have a nail appointment and then I'm meeting some friends for lunch. At 4:30 I go to the informational meeting for bariatric surgery. I've always resisted doing this, but the promising results in the diabetes reversal department have me looking into it. I would hate to have problems down the road with my eyes or my kidneys. I would like to get rid of it and the added bonus of losing weight is pretty great, too!

Today was the Bead Society of New Hampshire's holiday party at the Red Blazer in Concord. We get to enjoy a lovely buffet and then a Yankee swap. I brought handmade beads, of course. I was happy to see that my beads got stolen from the person who picked my present. I chose to steal a tiny Ott Light from someone and a few turns later, had it stolen from me! The game is a lot of fun as long as everyone is in the right frame of mind. I have seen yankee swaps where one person in particular was very upset that she was stolen from. So of course we kept stealing her things over and over, just to stick it to her. She was a pain in the ass. She drank moldy iced tea once. I thought it was hilarious.

So we have had a fun few days. My mom came over yesterday and we went out to lunch and then to knitting class. She went over an old project that she hadn't finished and got straightened out. I finished up a project and purchased yarn for a new project.  The ladies at the class are all regulars and attend this drop-in class every week. They were very welcoming and very helpful. Then last night we went out to dinner to MT's Local. She spent the night at my house. And this morning we went to the Farmers' Market in Rollinsford. It was great! I got the maple cream I want to bring to my friend and we picked up a few extra things, too. Not too much as we're going to be eating out a lot this coming week.
