This is one week I'm happier than I've been in a long time to see come to an end.

My auditors are gone.
They're nice folks, don't get me wrong, but I am always glad when the angonizing "On Stage, Under the Microscope" part of my job is over.

Until next year, of course.

So tonight, I'm tired. Tomorrow is my first of at least a couple of Christmases - this one with my daughter's family. I felt as if I weren't doing right by my grandsons, as I made them nothing this year. But in surfing Ravelry's patterns earlier, I discovered a darling trifle: Hoot by Ysolda.

Hoot reminded me of two out of my three DGSs (only the youngest is without glasses at this point, but knowing the genes of the two families involved, he doesn't hold out much hope of getting out of this without being an "owl-eye"). And so, tonight, with very little energy left, I dug out a leftover skein of WOTA in Daffodil and cast on for my first one. In very short order (during the hour of newscasts) I had two and a part complete, and finished the third during a game show (which I almost never watch)...

After organizing and wrapping gifts, I decided that I just had to make another:

for my neighbor's granddaughter.

I may have to make a flock of them for myself.
Easy. Peasy. Just the sort of quickie project that makes me feel as if I accomplished something...when I felt like not trying to accomplish a thing.

I hope, if you're shopping for the holidays this weekend, that you have clear sailing, fair weather, and great prices. I'm in a state of disbelief that I'm essentially done (okay, I should knit one more pair of socks, and locate one or two more "guy" gifts).

It's December 11. That's just totally out of character for me!

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
