I can’t believe Christmas is just around the corner. I have been working my hands off crocheting gifts for everyone 🙂 So far, I’ve finished two scarves and a potholder. The scarf above is for my brother’s girlfriend. It’s the first I’ve made using a double-crochet stitch. I love it because it’s so light and soft and very feminine. I think she’ll like it. It’s the one in the picture above. Crochet is certainly something I enjoy probably because it’s so easy, rewarding, and I’m really good at it 🙂 Don’t tell Chester, but I’m going to make him a toy and a kitty-scarf 😀 I still need to make a video on how to crochet. I think that would be fun 🙂
This is a big month for me, anxiety-wise. Our employee Christmas party is coming up and I have to pick out a gift for the White Elephant gift exchange. If you don’t know what this is, it’s when you put all the gifts together and go around and choose them. Then someone can steal the one you pick. I hate these kind of games, but I go along with it. I especially hate it when no one steals the gift I got. In this case, stealing is a good thing. No one stole mine last year and the person seem unhappy with it. I thought it was a cool gift. I got an Italian bialetti coffee maker and a bag of espresso coffee. I thought it was neat, but I guess not so much 😦 I’m just going to get wine and some accessories this year. Seems like that’s what everyone wants.
Then K is leaving for Korea. He will leave for almost a month, which is not the longest he’s been away, but it’s certainly a long time. I miss him when he goes and it’s stressful taking care of everything myself. I do like the time we have apart because as that old saying goes, distance and time makes the heart grow fonder.
At least I’ll have Chester to look after and to look after me 🙂
I hope everyone had a nice day and a nice weekend!
