’tis the season…

‘Tis the season for decorating. Later today while loverboy watches his favourite football team (that’s European football people, aka soccer) hopefully win their match, I shall be unearthing our holiday decor. Yup, Christmas will explode upon our tiny living space in T-minus-4-hours. Scary stuff.


‘Tis the season for gifts. Usually that means gifts for family & friends. And it still does, except Christmas came a little early for us this year. At 30-something, we finally made our first grown up purchase. Ermmm, purchases. Plural.

Back story: For the last 7 to 8 years we have been dining room table-less. Not to say that we didn’t have a dining room table, just that it’s been “otherwise occupied”. As a desk. As in our computer gear lives on it. That’s 7 to 8 years of eating on the couch in front of the boob tube. And oh how I’ve longed to eat at a table again. You know, like civilized folk do.
Well last weekend we bought a brand spanking new dinette set. And I love it. Except it has taken a full week to assemble. And as of this moment, only one chair has a seat. But I don’t care. It feels damn good to know that soon we will be enjoying our dinners AT A TABLE.
And tonight? Tonight I will happily plunk myself up at that table to write out Christmas cards. Yay!spreading cheer
Now for the plural portion of our purchases. We bought a new car. Okay, so it’s only ‘new’ to us, but hello, two grown up purchases in one weekend!? What’s next, a house? (I wish)

‘Tis the season for knitting marathons.
Yup. Four gifts down, and two more on the needles. Xmas hat #3 is being knit with the most amazing yarn – Mirasol Miski. It’s 100% baby llama. Wow. Really really soft. It’s been hiding in my stash for over a year, and I simply cannot believe that I hadn’t used it up before now. It’s knitting up just brilliantly into a beret. Might have to stash more and knit one for myself too :)

‘Tis the season for countdowns.
25 more days…

  1. Ah no… These were from the ‘local drugstore’. :)
    But I wish I’d have waited to buy cards, because that someone we both know has beautiful cards!
