We got our first Christmas card of the season on Friday. I love getting Christmas cards, even though I haven't sent any out in years. Every year there comes a day when I think, "Today is the day! I'm doing Christmas cards!" Unfortunately, the day that particular thought hits me is usually on December 23rd or after...boo! So if you're reading this and you send me a card every year and wonder where yours is, please know that your card is appreciated and that if I were better organized at Christmastime, you'd have one back.

Rather than divesting ourselves of any pets, however, we actually managed to bring another one into the household. No, it is not a dog, but she does bark. The Husband has a good friend in
who always seems to
have a great "deal" handy (thanks, Steve). It is probably a good thing that they don't
still live in the same state. So, this last trip Steve had a great deal for The Husband and our menagerie now includes an
African Grey parrot named Bella. Imagine
how thrilled I was at the thought of driving nearly 1000 miles back home with a
bird in the car. The good news is, she's
a lot better behaved and a lot smarter than the dog who is short a few brain
cells. Gee, all we're missing now is a
trained monkey. I may have to start
charging admission... Ohio
Regarding my Christmas knitting, I am now within 25 rows of finishing the body on my Malabrigo sweater. After that, just the sleeves to do. I'm feeling much more optimistic about sleeves these days. I have probably the same number of rows to complete another project and then I'm down to three sweaters and the Christmas blanket. If I actually manage to get the sweaters done, I may throw in a couple of small projects (yeah, yeah...).
Off to knit...
