First thank you for all the sweet comments on my last post. It was a sentimental day. But now I think I need to switch gears and lighten things up a little. I have an angel on top of my little tree. I discovered the other day that her arms move. I decided to have a little fun with her. Please caption the photo for me. What do you think she is thinking??

My old grinch heart grew 3 sizes today. It was a day full of sweet and bittersweet memories.

Damned if I know! How did it get to be the middle of December? My nice orderly little life has devolved into a chaotic mess. All week I have lived in fear that someone would come to visit and I would be compelled to tell them I have a horrible contagious disease and they dare not enter. The kitchen table is covered by my sewing machine and a pile of sale flyers and unopened mail. The dining room is remnants of a variety of in-progress holiday mess

Or more correctly "busted glass". Today we've had wild winds. I got home from work a little late and was rushing to get Abby out to pee. The wind caught the back door and whipped it out. It smashed the outside light. Smashed to smitherines.

This week was so jammed packed I don't know where to start. I'll just hit the highlights. There were multiple work events, but only pictures of one. Since 1971 Nova Scotia has donated a Christmas tree to the city of Boston as a thank you for the help they offered the province during the tragic Halifax Explosion of 1917.

I think I have mentioned here before that I am not really a lover of cats. But to tell the absolute honest truth, I'm scared of them. There I said it! There is no rational logic - my grandmother was terrified of cats, so was my mother and guess what - me too. And they can sense it, they stalk me. Seriously! Lol
So after work I stopped at a pet store to return something. They have store kittens that free range around the store. I'm trying to ignore it. And then it happened......... I'm just standing there, minding my own business when a rogue ninja kitten climbs up the back of my coat, past my neck and lands ON MY HEAD AND SECURED ITS POSITION ON MY SCALP WITH ITS CLAWS I swear it in 2 seconds it took for this to happen, my life flashed before my eyes! Ok, you all know what happens next. I freaked out "get it off, get it off". The clerk grabbed the kitten while I attempted to regain my composure. Let's just say it took a few moments. It's lucky the clerk was so close or there may have been a flying ninja kitten because I was close to flailing like a psycho.

I really don't know what's gotten into me the week but perhaps the fear of Christmas approaching has inspired me. I finished hooking this pillow top just now. I started it just before supper last night and it measures 16x16 inches. Might be a record for me

I think I've hooked more in the last few days than I have in months. When you get the hooking bug its best to make the most of it :). I finished my challenge rug but not ready to show it yet. Still may be an area I want to change. I finished hooking a Christmas piece and before supper I started this pillow that's in the latest rug hooking magazine. It's a fun little project.
