Now that Saint Nicholas Day has come and gone, I am thinking ahead to December 13th and the feast of Saints Lucia and Saint Herman. In addition to the lovely storybooks we have about these two saints, I like to put up some twinkle lights in honor of Saint Lucia and buy a little table top tree for our nature table for Saint Herman.
On our weekly library trip last week, I noticed that there was a book discussion scheduled for All the Light We Cannot See for December 11th. Since the library provides the book, I decided to borrow a copy and try to read as much as I could of the 530 pages before the deadline. It is such a good book that I have been reading it in all of my spare time and only have a little over a hundred pages to go!
On My Needles
I am still working on my black version of the Palmyre shawl and it is coming a long nicely. I only have a few more rows before I begin the lace portion and am really looking forward to wrapping myself up in it on these cold December days.
I have been enjoying a few episodes of Friends on Netflix after the little ones go to bed and am really enjoying the show. It's lighthearted and funny which is just what I need right now! I only have another season and a half to go and need some more suggestions!
Little man is going to be eight in less than a week! It is so hard to believe that he is getting so big. It feels like yesterday that he was my roly-poly, mischievous, little baby. I think that we'll have a reprisal of the yummy cake we made for his namesday last week!
