Weekend of Domesticity

Life has been going a million miles a minute lately.  Last week was pretty stressful and included a final exam in a class I have been taking. (Scored an "A"!)  My sweet baboo left on Friday to go visit his sweet grandbabies, so it was just Liesl and me for the weekend.  It has been super cold here on the Monterey Peninsula, with a freeze on Friday night, and a frost last night.  Liesl has woken me up in the middle of the night the past two nights to ask me to tuck her in under her blanket.  Brrr!
I should have done more holiday related things this weekend, but it was apparent that I needed to take care of my spirit and indulge myself in the activities that make me happy.  This weekend, I got to hang out with my best friend and make Norwegian meatballs.  The secret recipe has been in her husband's family for five generations.  He joked that he was going to have me sign a non-disclosure statement.  LOL.  I have meatballs in my refrigerator.  It is like money in the bank.
This week, I hung around the house, and tried to keep warm.  I did laundry, brushed Liesl's fur, made homemade macaroni and cheese.  I worked on Miss Liesl's quilt.  I crocheted some of my afghan.  I am about halfway done!  I just did things that I really enjoy. 

I feel restored and centered again.  As much as I love the traveling that I am fortunate enough to do, I love being home the very best.   I loved being with Liesl all weekend and giving her extra attention and kissies on her sweet little head.  I am ready for the next week of celebration and grateful for the gift of this weekend.

Your Quilt is just beautiful...I love the Design and the Colors. This one is going to be so pretty when it is done.

Your Afghan is so pretty too....I too Crochet...what stitch did you use for your Afghan?

I am glad that you got to sit down and work on your favorites after having a stressful week...Good for you. You needed that.

Looking forward to seeing more of your progress on your Quilt and your Afghan.

I also Quilt too but since I have moved back home I need to buy me a good Table Lamp so I can see to do my Quilting.

Have a Merry Christmas and get lots of Sewing and Crocheting Done...

Take care
