The Sweetest Gift

This tasty batch arrived today from Edgar. Hmm, notice how one of the chocolate-covered cherry papers is already empty. How did that happen? Must have been that greedy postman. All so delicious and incredibly thoughtful, Edgar. Thank you so much.
Crazy snowing outside and I love it. Time to stitch, and as of Saturday a lot more time then I had anticipated. Again, the outside world has invaded what semblance of order I had made of my life, if oh-so briefly. Hats off to USAG for recognizing my 10+ years of dedicated service (not to mention outrageous yearly dues) with another slap in the face. After 34 years, it may be time to move on from gymnastics. But that decision can be left for another time. I need to pull myself together and tough it out through another "happy holiday season".

So I am doing some serious "nesting"...baking Christmas cookies, working on a quilt and finishing some more socks and ornaments. The company of my beloved animals is always a plus. No matter what happens I always have their unconditional love.


  1. Will they never learn?? Hope you kick their asses! In the meantime enjoy your cozy home and cats! Hugs!!

  2. Well not sure what the gymnastic gurus are up to with you but you have my sympathy and support.

    Isn't that Edgar special - so very thoughtful.

    Enjoy your time -stitch, sit, hug animals, read, knit - just enjoy LIFE!
    Happy Day!

  3. It's always good to take comfort in the small delights of home when the outside world drives us crazy. I hope things work out for you.

  4. I'm not quite sure what's happening either but you can count on my thoughts and support, Jennifer. Enjoy the nesting - it seems quite the right thing to do! HUGS.
