Another year older another year...?

I just called to wish you an unhappy birthday... oh the Smiths always SO cheerful. This has been a rough one... year that is. I'm not sorry to put it behind me. My mood is definitely back on the upswing now, the spring is back in my step, the joy is back in my heart, I say bring it on!

Christmas was lovely, it's all about the people and I'm lucky to have some pretty terrific ones in my life.

Finally some updates... Mara is on the border, love Mara, great project I highly recommend it.

New wooly treats for Christmas... MadelineTosh in Turquoise and Port. I think Ginger is under the impression it's for her... NOT.

My other wooly (or should I say Woolgirly treat) I signed up for the Alice in Wonderland Sock club... so excited.

Anyway, this is what 47 looks like on me... and surprisingly... it feels pretty darn good. May be older really is wiser... or may be it's the rum and eggnog talking. Happy ho ho ho

Why does Facebook hate me...

I can't update my status, accept friend requests, comment friend's status updates or send any kind of message. I am not a huge facebook fan but it's an easy way to stay in touch. I feel like the girl who didn't get invited to the party.

In other news... the Hanger got his walking papers, we agreed it was best for both of us. 6 years is way too long to live in the gray area between friends and something more. He spent a month incommunicado, as per my request, then this week, texted me from 7:00 PM to 1:00 AM one night, telling me how much he misses me... men are beyond me, give me pets any day!

I've been knitting but it's impossible to get good pictures... I go to work in the dark, I come home in the dark, traffic is insane... welcome to winter in Calgary. I'm making terrific progress on my Mara shawl, love the pattern. Next time I'll make it in the proper weight on larger needles (as specified in the pattern) in fact, I've already picked out the yarn for the next one. I'm so enamoured of Mara that I've put everything else on hold.

Oh... all I have left in the way of Christmas is procuring booze and chocolates... neener, neener, neener
