Outlander Fans

Check out the video if you are a fan of the Jamie and Claire saga by Diana Gabaldron. There is enough eye candy here to satisfy anyone.

This week has been incredibly busy and the end is not in sight. One of the women in my knitting group had her cancer return for the third time and this appeared to be the final round for her. I busily knitted a 12 x 12 swatch to go in the blanket for her final days. It could be today or tomorrow or later, hard to tell. So she is in my thoughts and of course my mom died on Dec 17, 1999 so I have been missing her too.

I have the loom working again which gives me 5 days to weave a blanket. I'll post pics of the blanket as soon as its finished. I think I have the time,just have to work everything else in too.

There is a possibility that my sis Marianne will come for Christmas, it all depends on how she feels. She has a nasty cold right now. So I am planning on her being here and if she can't come then I will still be ok. I'll just have extra stocking stuffer's. I have done no holiday baking but that will change soon. Sarah made some peppermint bark and its yummy. I have plans for mini cheesecakes, lemon bars and Russian teacakes. I'll skip the sugar cookies this year. We are having turkey since we didn't have it for Thanksgiving. Dave usually makes it but this year I decided I wanted to. I want a cornbread stuffing. I have to find a good recipe for one. I'll drag out the cookbooks or look on line. Plus there are pies to bake and on and on. I know you know how it all is.

I'm sorry to hear about your friend. That can't be easy to deal with right now.

I've been baking cookies with the help of my son. We have made three batches so far and more to come.

Merry Christmas!!!

I am snowed in! hee hee! My friends in Charleston said it was 78 yesterday there! I am much happier in snow than heat.

You sound really busy Ms. Kate. Hope your sister gets to visit. That would be so nice for you both. I just noticed that your art header looks very much like self portraits of your personal photo. You are definitely very artistic...don't worry about that identity thing. You are YOU! A special person. Happy Christmas. xoxoxoxoxo

I am an "Outlander" fan, for sure. I made my book club read it (they complained that it was too long!). However, I thought the books weren't as good as the series went on and didn't even bother with the last one. I will check out the video though.
