A better week!

Well we both felt well enough to bake goodies and deliver to our local police and fire and to our landlord as well. We also have been surprised by some lovely presents from friends. One sent these lovely items.

Another sent this.
And another sent this.
Sylvia Joy got a mousie toy from her doggie cousins in PA. She loves it,

She has also been quite the kitty of leisure.

And she has fallen in love with an envelope!
Did you see the Christmas full moon tonight.  Very lovely it is!

Thanks for visiting. Huggles and blessings.

Short Post

Well, it has been quite the week here! Jack is having a lot of swelling and pain in both knees and one foot.  he was totally unable to walk Monday and Tuesday so I had to transfer him to an office chair to even get him around the house. A friend traded me a walker for some snowflakes I had made for her so it is making a world of difference for Jack now. He named the walker Snowflake.
Then I burnt my hand on the oven later in the week, and got sick with some horrible virus causing pain and swelling in my abdomen and horrible fatigue.  I finally could go no more by Saturday and just had to rest.  Really still very tired today. Yesterday jack did as much as he could to help out even sitting in the office chair to clean my floors. We have been subsisting mainly on soup as I have not had the energy to cook much else.  Today i have managed to get a ham in the slow cooker.
Before I got sick, I did manage to get my sewing desk home! Mr. Robin across the way helped me to bring it into the garage.  I put it on the hand truck and got it into the den.
Speaking of Mr. Robin, this is his buddy Bosley, a shepherd/pitbull mix. I got him some nylabones for Christmas.

Yesterday afternoon Mr. Robin brought cookies still warm from the oven!
Sylvia Joy has also turned into super kitty.
Last night we were surprised by our local police and a float of folks.  I believe they were distributing things to needy folks.
So that is all I have for now.  Need another rest.  huggles and blessings.

Snowflaking still!

I totally forgot to post last night.  Having to much fun figuring out a tablecloth I will be finishing for a friend.  But here I am now.  Still got plenty of snowflaking going on.

And the tablecloth is growing a little.
And Sylvia is being quite herself lately which makes me happy.

This is what we find in our bedroom nearly every morning. Hurts when you step on one.
And we had a stunning sunset last night.
Thanks for visiting.  Huggles and blessings.

Snow flurries!

Hello!  I am afraid I am buried in a snow flurry of my own making.  I have 28 of 60 snowflakes to finish and get out by Christmas with another 5 dozen to do after Christmas.  I will be doing them in my sleep! But I love doing for those who ask for them,

I am also sneaking in a row or two on the tablecloth with the lovely butter yellow thread Jack surprised me with.
He also surprised me with this lovely picture that was half off.
Of course I can not leave you without plenty of Sylvia pictures.  She is feeling quite herself again and playing and just happy as can be.

Thanks for visiting.  Huggles and blessings.
