today is the 12th day of christmas. after 6 wks of christmas, i am kinda glad to see the season end.
this has been an emotional few weeks. our daughter is doing fabulously health wise. our friend's 17 yr old found a cancer recurrence on christmas day. she was just getting ready for college after the last bought delayed that dream.
other friends are dealing with a very wide spread breast cancer and just "waiting it out" now, pray for her children. sylvia loved so many little ones. she has blessed our lives by loving our babies.
peggy died unexpectedly new year's eve. her funeral was today. she was an awesome woman! went to buy cards and cried in the bookstore. good thing i know the owners and they didnt think i was a tweaker.
thursday sam still hung out with the teens while things are in transition. then friday we had to pull lawn chairs in for services, it was so packed. i get all twitter patted listening to him preach. :-) he is so wonderful.
i am getting my notes all prepared for the women's event i am speaking at. do you think i can work knitting into it? betcha i can. :-)
tali is talking in semi sentences. the girls are all giggly and have a new giggly friend. the boys are becoming boys not just kids, boys. annoying, burping, growing too fast out of their clothes, wearing holes in their shoes, boys. and when did they get so good at jokes? they crack me up!
my hair is greying. i'm not planning on colouring it. but suddenly there is alot of it!
i owe alot of pictures.
my pal asked about my menorah. i have 8??? i think. so i am gonna try to get them all in a group shot for you. sam's silk kippah turned out so nice. now if only i could find more of it in less girlie colours.
my dad's sweater is still on the needles. i designed a cable sock pattern. trying to graph the chart. my dad found a knitting font so it may help.
tali's sherwood sweater stalled affter 2" and i need to get it going again. actually i have way to many WIPs.
i thought i found my bible verse for the year, but when i looked it up..it was sooo not the verse i had read. i lost it, and need to find it again. mom has hers down. it is a new years tradition. any one have a favourite verse to share? have you found a promise you are holding tight to for the coming year? please share!
