Hello! A little to share with you!

I was going to post Friday but I am sick yet again! Round number three! Jack is just getting over his third round. Missed church today too as I do not want to share this but onto the fun stuff! Last weekend on the Sunday ME day, I played with my loom. Making a cover for my kindle.

This Sunday for my ME day I am working on a shawl.
 The angels are finished and will be mailed out this week. Now I am working on a tablecover for another friend. It will be around 36 inches in diameter. I have two more to make for others and one for me.
That is about all I have managed. Here is Sylvia having a case of the sillies this last week.
And the cold weather today called for a nap!
Thanks for visiting. huggles and blessings.

Sorry I Was Gone So Long!

Well, at last here I am! Feeling much better mostly, but feel like I have a sinus infection. But enough about that! A lot has happened since last we met.  We had our first snowfall!

Got some lovely presents from dear friends in Pennsylvania. We exchange gifts every year.

On Christmas day, my beloved Jack and I were Chrismated into the Orthodox church! Chrismated basically means we read aloud to the church the Creed and Father John anointed us with holy water and oil. The couple standing next to us are our "sponsors". They will be lifelong friends to pray with us and walk with us on this journey called life! Afterwards most of us at church stayed to have Christmas potluck together and enjoy one anothers company. We always have fellowship after church on Sunday's.
We had ice on the streets and the pond this last Sunday. It was sure pretty on the pond!
A cardinal showed up to say hello!
Did you get to see the super moon the first? It sure was lovely and happened on the only clear night we have had in awhile.

Now here is Sylvia being Sylvia!

Back at end of week.

Friends, I got hit with round two of the virus late last week. Finally some better today. See you at the end of the week.

Back at last!

We are both finally over that awful virus. Jack still has a bit of a cough now and again. Going to church tomorrow for the first time in a couple weeks. Today Jack felt well enough and the weather was nice enough he walked downstairs to check the mail. He came back with bloody, scratched and cut hands, bruised ribs on one side and even his nose was skinned. Yep, he fell. *sigh* I think I shall wrap him in bubble wrap.
 That sweet husband of mine really surprised me good this year with presents. Nope, we do not wait until Christmas day to open presents. First a Kindle showed up for me.
Then a few days later this showed up. It is a four inch pin loom.
I have been playing with it as you can see.
We have done without a lot and struggled quite a bit since losing our home in 2011 and Jack felt I deserved special treats this year. So sweet of him. He has been rewarded with jammies and a couple models he wanted for some time.
The trees are still lovely in some places although most have lost there leaves.
Our dear little 84 year old neighbor downstairs brought this lovely poinsettia to us a couple days ago. So sweet is little Miss Trudy!
I have been crocheting also. I have now finished this hat.
Working now on angels. Sorry no picture and squares for an afghan for a friend.
Our squirrels visit daily sometimes several times a day.
Sylvia is still Sylvia!
Enjoying her Christmas giftie today!
Here is Jack when he felt so bad.
So now you are all caught up with us. Thanks for visiting. I need to catch up on my blog reading! Huggles and blessings.

Be back soon as I can!

Friends, I have been sick with a virus for a week. I am getting better but they say the cough can hang on for two weeks. Now my beloved Jack is coming down with it so I am trying to do most of the work to let him heal and rest. I will be back with a post as soon as I can!
