I can’t believe my time off is almost half over. Where did the time go? I know where it went – lots of holiday things but I’ve still managed to be productive.
All the crocheting I needed to get done, I finished on Sunday! I was very pleased to finish the slippers Sunday instead of Monday – pushing the deadline of needing them done by Christmas. Last night I watched a new show while I crocheted. Wynonna Earp – I thought it was going to be an old time western from the female perspective. Nope. It’s a modern paranormal show based on the descendant of Wyatt Earp. It was enthralling. There are definitely lots of twists and turns. I’m binging the first season so tonight when I work on the afghan I’ve got going, I’ll be watching it.
Writing – I’ve been working on updating a bunch of stuff. It’s been a very productive time which I’m seeing the end of the tunnel for this project.
Today I’m alone in my house. I can’t remember the last time I was alone in my house for a full day. I’m enjoying it. I’ve gotten through the massive number of emails, worked on my website (ongoing) and hope to finish the project today.
In addition, I’ve made phone calls for my daughter and corresponded with our insurance and a variety of other people.

I’ve been trying to stay off social media because again – needed a break but with this sale, I need to be posting at least once a day about it. Even during the holidays, I don’t stop working because it’s important I keep engaging people.
I went to my family Christmas. While there, I delivered items to people. I also got orders for more stuff. The good thing about this – I’m going to Joann’s over the weekend. I’m really looking forward to shopping with my niece. It will be a nice outing for the two of us. I hope I can find the colors of the items I want. Joann’s has a sale going on for which I’ve gotten a flyer which I’ll be taking with me. The fabulous thing – I have two gift cards for $125 so none of what I buy I’ll be paying for! I get to feed my obsession without paying for my obsession.
Our immediate family is doing Christmas on Saturday! We normally do ours early and I’m not sure I like the late thing but the girls are all going to be together. I think it will be good. We’ll video chat. There are several things I want to see the girls open and hope they like.
Until then, I have a long to do list… too long to list here.
