Strange Christmas

I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas and that you are looking forward to the coming new year. I am back from my holiday travels and a bit under the weather so this won't have much stitching content. This was a very bittersweet holiday for me as the day before I left, my cat passed away during a procedure to clean his teeth. The vet was very upset and going to do an autopsy to see why this may have happened but I won't know the results until next week as he is on holiday. The house feels a bit weird without him here when I got home from work this evening.

This was the first Christmas I had spent in Florida in almost 10 years and it was definitely strange. The weather was gorgeous but my family was split up between two households and this is the first Christmas I didn't get to wake up with my nieces and open presents. I did get to see my dad which was nice but I'm not sure I would like to repeat the experience. There is just something about cold weather and snow that makes things a bit more Christmas-ey to me.

I didn't do much stitching while I was down there which is the opposite of what I had planned. However, I was able to finish my other sock and ended up starting a pair for my niece. Most of my time was spent knitting rather than stitching but I did manage to do some stash enhancing which I will report on later. I'm off to nurse my cold....

Hi Patti! I do hope you feel better soon! I am sorry that the weather wasn't to par for your Christmas. It wasn't in Virginia either..it was rainy and near 50. Usually it's cold..and sometimes we have snow..but I know what you mean about it not 'feeling' like Christmas. LOL Take care of yourself..and have some warm soup!

Can't wait to hear about your stash enhancement... :)
