On To 2013
The funny thing that happened was that the my husband left to pick up his mom, who now lives quite close to us in an independent living community, and shortly after he left the doorbell rang. I opened it up to find my MIL on the doorstep, having driven herself over. She said she had told the spouse she would drive herself when he visited her the day before, but I guess he didn't hear that part. Right after that surprise arrival, the phone rang, and it was the spouse asking if his mom had showed up at our house since she didn't answer her doorbell at her apartment. So the arrival part was choppy, but everything turned out fine. The MIL had a great time, which makes the year start off nicely.
It is very cold here, in the 20's, which isn't rare, but is unusual. I have been thinking about my seed order, since with the economy going down a dark path, we decided to expand the vegetable garden. I also need to start cooking up the jam for next year using the fruit I froze last summer. That should open up some freezer room for the never-ending squash.
I finished knitting a pullover and now just have to sew it together. In the meantime, I noticed that I have 4 skeins of red/orange/yellow/red orange variegated yarn left over from a finished afghan, so in an effort to use up yarn, I am making the flashiest cardigan ever. It should be fun to wear around the house, and everyone will be able to see me from a vast distance.
