Well, look at that. We are 4 days into 2009 already. I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year celebration!
For me, 2008 ended on a mixed note.
The good: my brother became a grandpa on December 30. (Remember the baby surprise jacket I made a few months ago? That was for his new grandson.)
The bad: on the morning of December 31, a family friend had a large tree fall on her house, which demolished about one-quarter of the house. The good news there is that neither she nor her 2 kitties were injured, but the state of the house is horrific. Work has already started on it, but it will be at least several months before it is habitable again.
I’ve been off from work since December 18, and am reluctantly returning to the office tomorrow. So today I’m getting things ready to return to “normal” life.
I’ve got my new 2009 calendar up at home.
And I’ve got another 2009 calendar ready to take to the office.
Now I’ve got to pick out a new book to take for lunchtime reading.
I’m still working on non-bloggable things, but wanted to show you a photo of one of the lovely things I got for Christmas:
This is laceweight wool that my friend Johanne gave me, along with matching beads. It’s from a shop local to her in Stockholm. Isn’t it gorgeous?
So, all is back to normal here. And Lucy is as usual overseeing everything!
