It's 25 degrees out there. 31 years ago there was snow on the ground. I remember because it was 31 years ago that I was in Bryn Mawr Hospital. Colin was born just after midnight on 12/11/89. Funny story: my due date was 12/7 (Pearl Harbor Day), and my friend Leslie said oh no...you will have your baby on 12/11. Exactly 12 years prior Leslie was pregnant with a due date of 12/7. Her daughter, Jaimie, was born on 12/11. Our family has so many birthdays on 12/11: Colin, my niece Vera in CO, my brother's partner Sammy, Fletcher's Grandfather. A popular day!
Meanwhile, this Friday brings with it a finish:
I do love the way these turned out and I think Anna will like them too. The mitts knit up so quickly, I almost wish there were some other people to knit mitts for! LOL Instead, I plan to cast on the YinYang Kitty socks for Mailing today.
My usual 10 a.m. conference call is still on for today, but other than that there is nothing (at the moment) on my work agenda. Fletch says he has some errands to run, so I may try to wrap some of his gifts while he is out of the way. And maybe some other gifts too. I'd also like to get the bathrooms cleaned and I have been ignoring the kitchen floor, but it is time to tackle that.
We plan to have a fire tonight as it is supposed to be fairly mild today and our winds have died down. Fletch is going to get our tree this weekend, so I guess there will be some decorating going on as well. And, of course, I'd like to get some baking (cookies) done.
Let's not forget to relax! I'd like to have a relaxing weekend and I hope you all do as well.
