Thinking About Christmas
Yesterday I managed to get in the entire 5 miles worth of steps that the powers that be say you should be doing every day. So far today I am at only half that, but there is still time left to rack up some miles.
I am working away on the husband's Christmas socks and trying to think of other presents to get for the adults in the Christmas draw. We are limiting ourselves to $10 a person, and I am finding it to be kind of fun to try and get an OK gift with that little money. It calls for creativity and imagination. We could, of course, give the gift of scrumptious baking but all the folks whose names we drew seem to be on special diets of one kind or another. Oh well, I will think of something but I'd better do it fast.
I got some DVDs at the library this afternoon and already watched one while working on the abovementioned socks. It was a pretty good anime - Paprika. Very colorful weirdness. It is sort of hard to knit while watching a movie with subtitles because you have to keep your eyes on the screen. I am finding that knitting man socks is not nearly so fun because the colors my man likes are grey, brown and black unless he goes crazy wild and chooses navy. It is much more fun to knit Abby socks in splendid colors that sometimes form interesting patterns. Also, man socks can have ribbing and maybe a few cables but never ever any lace, and it is hard to see what you are doing in dark man colors.
Well, time to go start some soup and make some buttermilk biscuits.
