Return from Hiatus
Every single person in our house was sick over Christmas, and it lasted about three weeks altogether. Then last week, I got a new sickness, and I'm recovering from that. Poor Dominic slept through our Christmas dinner, he was so weak, and woke up long enough to decline any food, but we did get him to drink some sparkling cider.
Aside from a very quiet Christmas, we had a nice anniversary and New Year's celebration. Then Rich and I succumbed fully to illness. This was made even more difficult because I had another reason for being sick and tired.
It's not the clearest picture, we'll have a better one in about 6 weeks. So, I hope you'll forgive my long absence.
There is something else for which I need to apologize and correct. The colorswap fizzled, because I had been having trouble with the send on my pop account for my gmail account. I have dial up, and a slow connection, so using the web is not a reasonable option until we get a faster system. Anyway, it was so spotty that people weren't getting their assignments. I think it is all correct now, so if people are interested in doing that last swap still, please e-mail me. I will contact everyone who already wrote to me, to make sure how they want to proceed as well.
One last thing, I still have the button contest to do. In the next week, I will post all the colorswap buttons and a survey for voting. The designer of the winning button will receive one skein of yarn from each month's theme.
I think that is all the business I have now.
I've been thinking about you lately and wondering how things were going. Glad to see you are back to blogging again.
Sickness has been going around here too. Started with Jonathan, then me, and now looks like Denise has it. I'm sure the other 2 kids will be sharing soon too.
Just found the cutest embroidery design for a bib today. But will have to wait to see if I put it on pink or blue....
I heard the news "through the grapevine" (YG of course) and have hoped that everything was okay since you hadn't posted! I like to check in and see your pics of the kids! Glad to hear you are all feeling better and hope to see you soon -
