It has rained all day long. And I do mean All. Day. Long.
Needless to say, I did not get out of the house. Well, except to run get the mail during the only 15 minutes of the day during which it was not raining.
So, what did I do?
I started taking down the Christmas decorations for one.
I finished a scarf for another.
I'm a little bummed, though. You know I used to make all these scarves for a charity called Scarves From The Heart. They deliver them to cancer patients at a treatment center near where they are located. But when I went to the website to get the address, apparently they've dismembered, or disbanded, or disengaged, or whatever charities do when they shut down. Whatever you call it, they aren't there any more. So, now I need to find a new charity to send my scarves to.
Speaking of scarves, I just realized I never showed you Beverly's finished cowl. I can now that she's got it.
She really, really liked it.
Oh, and I should probably show you the rest of my Christmas presents, too. I'd saved a few to open on Christmas morning.
And here they are:
Oh, and my sister sent me some bear sausage. Well, something like a slim jim, only made with bear meat. I haven't opened them yet. She also sent me some of that really good fireweed jelly that she makes. I'm almost tempted to move to Alaska myself, just to get some more of that stuff.
My younger brother and sister in law sent me a gift card to Amazon.com, so what did I do but buy a book.
Uglies, by Scott Westerfield.
It is the first of a series, but I haven't bought the second book yet. Next up on the reading list is The Handmaid's Tale, by Margaret Atwood.
I'll let you know how it goes.
