My favorite day of the year just passed.
The winter solstice!
From now on, it will stay lighter just a little bit longer each day.
That means spring is on the way!
Trying to catch up on all the bloggy goodness that happened at Christmas. I love reading about the traditions and memories families and friends kept and were making!
Hubby luv took the week of Christmas off for vacation. The boys enjoyed having him home. Javi is on a three week break from classes and Bean and Middleman are off this week still. Friends over today to kick bootay on the XBox!
Some exciting news at our house! We've adopted! LOL
Please welcome Wee-kips to the family with us.
Here she is just waking up from her mid morning nap. Not to be confused with her early morning or late morning nap.
Wee-kips was an outside kitty at KT's country home. She has some issues due to what they think were either being hit by a car or attacked by a larger animal. They live in coyote country and Wee-kips just showed up at their house late summer/early fall. She also has something not quite right with her jaw as in head injury?
She is the most docile, loving, cuddly kitten in the world. Lady and Peek-a-Boo are adjusting. Speaking of, Peek has had a couple of instances where what we think is a tumor has burst. It happened again this morning and we've decided that taking her to the vet would probably kill her (does not do car rides at all!) and the vet would either suggest putting her down or a treatment she might not survive anyway.
We've decided to keep her here at home and let Nature take its course.
Among some other fun, quiltey things, I finished the Aloha Quilt.
This is the back. The two tall people helping me were Javi and his friend Josh. Thanks guys!
This is the front. I quilted straight stitch around the pinwheels and a meandering stitch on the large, floral print. Just a thin edge for the binding. I wanted to get better pictures, but the guys were needed in the family room to kill aliens!
Okay, not quite caught up on everything, but I feel better just reconnecting with blogland.
Hard to believe another year is almost here! I don't do resolutions, because I usually break them. LOL
Wishing all a Happy New Year!
