November is over half gone. This week is Thanksgiving in the USA which means........Christmas is slowly creeping up on us. This year, I am not killing myself making gifts. Nope, we are doing an exchange with the local family and for the out of towners, they put their wish lists on Amazon. It will be so much easier this year. Hubby and I do not exchange gifts. After 43 years of marriage, we feel each day is a gift and enjoy our time with family and friends.
Today is catch up day. Other than making dinner last night, I did nothing around the house. So, today, I am doing a couple of loads of laundry and starting a bit of decluttering in my craft room. Sam does a 15 minute a day declutter and I believe that is something I can actually do each day.
Yesterday I did work on my socks. Well actually I worked on 1 sock. Last time I showed it, this is where I was.
As of this morning, this is my progress:
The heel is completed! Fingers crossed I can complete the other sock's heel today. Then I just have the foot to do. I would love to have these off the needles by the weekend. They would be perfect for me to take on our trip next week. Not that I don't have other lovely handmade socks I could take. But I could cast on another pair to do while traveling.
Hubby is contacting our plumber today to see when he can come out and look at our pool and let us know if he can do it or if we need to call a pool company. It's always something, huh.
I will be heading out this afternoon to watch the local Grand Daughter's softball game. She plays all 4 sports at her school and loves it. Basketball starts after the first of the year and there is soccer in the mix too.
Dinner is ready to go into the slow cooker. This is the time of year I love my slow cooker. Chili's, stews, and soups are so yummy during the colder months. Plus, with the busy schedule we have for the next few weeks, it is a great way to make sure there is a nutritious meal waiting for us when we get hungry.
Off to change the laundry around.
Until next time...............happy crafting!
Mmmmm... I need to start making soups and stews. It's downright cold here in Indiana. ;^)ReplyDelete
I love how your granddaughter is a dedicated athlete at her school. Good luck to her.ReplyDelete
