But, this morning, I got up and thought ...hmmmm what if I added pockets??!!! So I did! Then I decided to trim the sleeves with matching cuffs and then I decided the bottom needed to match the cuffs. Now I have this great, soft sweater with pockets. Goodwill will never see this puppy again!
I took the bandage off my hand. It was just itching me to crazy town. So I took off the bandage and iced it down for a bit and it's way better now. It's not leaking so I think I'll leave the bandage off for a while. Maybe we're at the point where I only bandage it for swimming.
The mail from my blogger friend was, indeed, a Christmas card from her and her husband. I was just delighted. She had to have worked to find my address (not hard, but still). So thoughtful. Also was a card from my brother's oldest son with family photos. They send me one every year with pictures of the whole family and then pictures of each of their daughters who are sure no longer babies! Wow.
My Echo Clock arrived and it's nice. A good size. Easy to see from a distance. It's so cool to 'see' the timer ticking down. I'm so easy to please. I cannot decide where to mount it. For now, it's sitting on a shelf. I think I'll add the where decision and the mounting to my brother's list of ToDo's for when he comes to visit in January.
We have another windy night here. The trees are really moving and the drapes on the terrace are flapping. It's nights like this that make me extra special glad I do not live in a house on a lot with big trees that can fall on the house!
I wrote a card to Colin and left it at his door. I can't hear barking dogs but I can hear someone over there yelling at someone else. I can't hear what they are saying just muffled yelling sounds. Oh, they just stopped. Good. What weird neighbors.
