Happy New Year

Happy New Year. I got some of those knitting needles that light up for Christmas. Thanks Mom. Now when we're driving in the dark, I knit while my husband drives. I will be able to make alot of dishcloths in 2007.

Thank you, Secret Pal

Thank you, Secret Pal, for the lovely card from Estonia (& geography lesson!) and the knitting book. I'm sure it is a book I will own forever and use often as a reference.

Hey, any good spellers out there? I just heard of an adult spelling bee in the Exton area that will be held this spring. I'd like to go see it, but it would be alot more fun if I knew a participant.

I Hear Something

At breakfast this morning:
T. - "I hear something"
Me - "What do you hear?"
T. - "Something on the roof, maybe it is Santa"

Oh, the joyous sounds of Christmas!

You know what is really great? There are already grape jelly stains on it! If I had a better camera, you'd see them. Hint, Santa.
