Sunday, Coming Around Again

We came home from our trip yesterday and today, I just need to continue doing the laundry and getting it all put away. Lots of laundry for five people on a 4 day trip, but we had a great time together. My dog stayed at the vet's office this trip. This is a good thing as she is going blind and having other issues. We are slowly making the house safe for her, so that she can continue to move around it and not get hurt. The cats are getting used to having us back in the house, three kids make a lot of noise.

I received a lot of emails with pattern links during the down time and now just need to get through a lot of the new ones and lots of the old ones and then I can get the email cleaned out. I know that I can get this accomplished if I am persistent, but I also know that I want to work on my WIPs and get things finished because I am feeling good about accomplishing things again.

I did finish the scarf for my husband. It turned out really nice. I told my girls that I was playing yarn chicken with the scarf. I was so close to finished and thought that what I had was enough, and I didn't bring an extra with me. So I was going to see what happened. I figured if I ran out, I could finish it when we got home, as I had more at home, but I won the game.

In our town, we have a very special parade for Christmas. It brings lots of tourists to our town and makes getting around for this one day very interesting. It is called the Horse and Carriage Parade. It is a wonderful program and we have taken the girls to see it a few times. We have gone during the day, when there tend to be more horses and carriages and in the evening when there are fewer (some of the participants only show during the day and some only at night and some at both), but the carriages and horses have lights. It is a fun atmosphere. This year, the girls and I will be downtown during the parade, but the girls are going to be in a meeting for a presentation they are doing, I will see if being high up in the stacks will give me a view I have missed, if I don't get to see the parade, it will work out, there is another showing and we have been invited to a friend's house (they are on the parade route).
