are alight in the Menorah.
All four of my kids are home. The Eldest picked up Maus from Oakland this afternoon. They came straight to the house. College Guy worked all day. Since he is the only one of the management staff at his particular CVS to whom none of the following apply (married, small children, Christian) he volunteered to work the whole day. I’ve no question that he is a good guy and would have been willing to help out regardless. But the extra hours and the holiday pay never hurt.
are special for the holidays. Hey, the fabric was on sale at JoAnn’s and I was having fun with my new serger.. We had latkes, both traditional and sweet potato. Our stove has a griddle surface, so we completely avoided the deep fry oil, but with a few left over for tomorrow’s breakfast. Finished up the soup.
Otherwise, I took it really easy today. Christian reported in that everything went smoothly in Augsburg. I got the impression that they were all very thankful that their hardest job was deciding what kind of pizza to order in. The courage of the three EOD guys still amazes me. I did enough standby for EOD for years, but never had a desire to really learn whether I should be cutting the yellow, red, blue or green wire first… That bomb, one of the original “Blockbusters” will be on its way out of the area to complete its demilitarization.
I’ve started the Klimt Cross-stitch. It is one the with (44×132 = 5808 stitches) and 80+ colors. Many of which have only one or two stitches in a section.
Since it is so narrow, I am going to consider progress by rows completed rather than by 10×10 squares done. A row (44 stitches) to count must be complete. Three rows down, 129 to go = 5676 stitches till completion. With all the floss I have around, two of the colors I need seem to have taken a walk. Of
course, they both have a presence in the first few rows.
Tomorrow I’m predicting continuing cool (not cold) and mostly sunny to the weekend. Hope that everyone had a wonderful day with family, friends and whatever they were celebrating.
I took pics of my daughter in law lighting the menorah last night. We didn’t have latkes but with all the leftover mashed potatoes I will probably make something like that today. It sounds like a lovely day.
Love that you get to have your whole family there.
Virgin (three virgins?). No real clue to tell you the truth which is why I am just retering to it as Virgin.
