My New Years was spent at home with a sick husband and four kids. I drank some champagne. I watched the ball drop. I headed to bed. Nothing exciting, much like the whole of my winter break. Fortunately, when I am unable to venture beyond the county line, I have a very good friend who is a world-traveller (she’s a flight attendant) bringing me goodies from all over. Her family spent their winter break in Japan, which is one of the places I most want to visit. (I was insanely envious.) It’s all good, though, because she brought me back the coolest souvenirs. 🙂 A tea set, some of the cutest crackers and candies I’ver ever seen, and a very nice bamboo bookmark. (Happy coincidence, I’m actually reading a book of short stories by a Japanese Author: Revenge by Yoko Ogawa.) My friend is the best!
When not wistfully wishing I had a jet-setting life, I’m reading, and doing one of my various hobbies. I started a hexagon afghan. Tutorial can be found at Attic24. It’s hard to sit and work on it, though, because Marcy is now walking and into EVERYTHING.
