September, and I welcome it with great joy!
It's Thursday, 12/19, HAPPY HOLIDAYS, MY FRIENDS!!
Check it out:, I am volunteering today!

This Friday, 12/20, I am hosting my knitting group - a holiday themed evening with delicious goodies and a $5 to $10 anonymous gift exchange!!  I am making a Buche de Noel, Swedish Meatballs and Wassail!  And of course each person brings a treat and a project and we chat and share ideas and have a grand time together.

Anyone out there have any plans for the holidays?  Staying in, going out, enjoying the peace and quiet all by yourself?

I'll be with son, daughter and grandson after work on 1/1 & on 1/2, but for Christmas & New Year's Day I will be working --- we get paid double time on the holidays and I have bills to pay, plus save for a new bed and a laptop.

Take care, Peace & Love, Carol
