Hello my dear readers. I'm sorry it's been so long since I have written anything on this blog of mine. Time gets away too fast sometimes!
I returned home from Turkey before Thanksgiving. It was so much fun getting to explore more of the vast city of Istanbul.
Of course, I took my knitting with me. I finally completed this shawl, just before Christmas. It took me over 3 months so I felt a bit lonesome when I had finished it :)
My watercolors made their appearance for a short time to complete a Christmas card for my dear friend in Scotland.
Lilly is alive and well. She will be 14 years young next month. I can't believe where the years have gone.
All the family was here for the Christmas holidays and it was a joyous time. We had some healthy food too like the hummus pictured above that I made. Super easy recipe.
I took the Christmas trees down the day after Christmas but it took me a couple of days to complete my cleaning. I felt good after the house was put back in order.
We've had some lovely weather and I loved seeing the sunset the other night.
A couple of days ago, we went to the beach with our friends and I called it the calm before the storm as we are expecting a week of rain! Yes, I'm excited as I love rain and we need it, too.
This is me trying to do a selfie! Oops, not so good but I wanted to show you the beautiful hand knitted shawl/scarf my dear friend Christine knitted for me. It's a most cherished gift.
That about does it for the update on what's been happening around here. I will have the pleasure to babysit my little granddaughter this week so I'm looking forward to that. And, there's a new knitting project on my knitting needles that I will share later.
Oh, almost forget - I joined Instagram. I'm not on Facebook or Twitter or anything else but I did join Instagram. My son told my daughter that "Mom has fallen through the rabbit hole". It's fun. I love it! And, I've found many of my blog friends over there, too.
I hope your new year is off to a wonderful start. Lilly sends me best wishes to each of you as do I.
Until next time,
