advent, part iv

During the past five days, a few complications conspired to make advent a bit of a challenge. There was a terrible bout of stuffiness and sore throat for J. There was a visit from some lovely friends. There were painfully cold winds through our dear city. And there was no beeswax to be found in my supplies cupboard.

The only activity that made it from the original list was my cozy crochet project.

Any guesses?

So instead we turned up the Christmas music, put on the Christmas lights, and finally made time for another Christmas movie.

Life is short, and we've got to live in the present. And there's always tomorrow...


  1. Still, you are doing so well with all your projects!

    I am certainly impressed!!

  2. I think 'do less' should really be on everyone's list around Christmas time ;)
    Yes, go and enjoy lots of movies ;)
    But I do have to say, you're still making wonderful progress with your crocheting ;)

  3. Yep, that's exactly what we did this past week (on my days off). My brother and I were in a "way too many days of rain" slump, so we rented some Christmas movies and put up more Christmas lights and drank hot cocoa! That Christmas spirit always helps :)

  4. Wow, I wish I knew how to crochet, but have yet to learn. Someday... :)


Thanks for making me smile. =)
