Rainy week update

Well it has been a busy and a rainy week. we have a flash flood warning and have had nearly three inches of rain today in some areas. anyway, onto the fun stuff!
I have been working on the shawlette for a friend.
I have also been very busy on the cross tablecover for another friend. I am getting very close to the end. I am on row 44 of 60!
Also, I am working on squares for a friend's afghan. There will be pink, green and gold.
This weekend for my me time, I am trying to get finished up on an afghan I have had going for about two years. It keeps getting put down to do for others. But that is fine and I do not mind!
Now for Sylvia Joy! being very lady like here!
And having a wee bit to much catnip!

That is all I have for now1 Thanks for visiting. Huggles and blessings.

Here I am!

Sorry to be missing for so long. It has been busy this month with  Bishop Nicholas visiting our little Orthodox church.  Here he is leading the Liturgy with Father John.
 And here are a few pictures from our evening meal that night.

I have also taken some time to try and recover from being sick so much since November. Feeling much better but my body is still run down some. Recieved a happy in the mail yesterday from a facebook friend. I just love it!
I am making her a shawl!
I also am putting work in on the cross tablecloth for another friend.
And finishing up some hearts for another friend.
Now for some Sylvia sillies!

Thanks for visiting. Huggles and blessings.

Happy weekend!

Not a lot to share as once again I am ill. This time shingles on my head an an infection in front of my ear up into my head. I tell you some days one wants to hide! However I managed to finish up a shawl after deciding I did not want a border on it.
Also managed a little work on the cross tabletopper as well. I am now making hats and scarves for the snowmen too.

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!

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!

Thanks for visiting. Huggles and blessings!

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.
