I’m tired. Almost flattened kind of tired. We had a whole lot of lovely friends show up yesterday, and it was awesome, but after the holidays (which were amazing, and super easy, but still exhausting… you know what opening presents and eating rich foods is like, and if you don’t at this time of year, you should invite yourself to my house and I’ll show you) it was… well, tiring. There is a chance that I’m mostly tired because I carried a three year old friend up the big hill from the beach, but I’m going to blame it on the holidays.
One of my favourite parts of the holidays was giving Jeremy’s brother a sweater I had knit for him. He asked me to knit him one 2 summers ago, so last year for Christmas I gave him yarn, and then this year I gave him the sweater. It’s the EXACT same sweater that I knit for Jer a couple of years ago, and taking photos of the two of them at the beach was awesome.
One of my other favourite parts of the holidays was the ridiculous dog bone that our neighbour got Mia. Smoked cow knuckle. She devoured it in a morning and didn’t poop right for 2 days. She’s (almost) back on track. That may have been too much information. Sorry.
Jer’s brother also got a chainsaw mill for Christmas. He came over and used it with Jer’s chainsaw. Now Jeremy is ogling one of his own on the internet. I got a new laundry rack on pulleys that attaches to the ceiling. It’s really cool. I did laundry on Christmas day to try it out. I’m not guaranteeing how long THAT’S going to last, and it certainly didn’t convince me to put the laundry away… I don’t know what kind of gift that would take.
