Well for one, stitches. (Time to start knitting the edging!)
Also, work. I’ve managed to get a decent amount of reading done since Thanksgiving, which is good. (I’m not counting today…)
And myself, too. I bought some holiday booze this week — a small indulgence, a reminder that fancy things can be just for me. You know, like extra olives and good gin while cooking dinner. I’m trying to remember to be good to myself. (B. left a year ago today. And what a year it has been — my exams, moving to the lake house, writing the dissertation prospectus, all this research travel. I think I get an extra gin-soaked olive or two for all of that.)
Picking up….? I’ve got nothing for this one. Boh looks pretty happy with the pace of things around here. Can you believe it will soon be December? Stay tuned for more pictures of the hap blanket edging. And give yourself a treat. You deserve it.
LOVE the pic of Boh on the couch … what a sweet dog. We all need to remember to treat ourselves well, especially at this time of year when things get a bit frantic — need to remember to take a few moments each day to be joyful.
Boh has a coy look in his eye in that first photo! That dog’s a hoot.
2011 has been a year of major milestones for you — congratulations! I think a treat or two (or twelve) is most definitely in order. I’m about to treat myself to a mug of hot cocoa and some crochet time. :)
((hug)) I think this is the perfect time of year to indulge in a few extra gin-soaked olives.
