Bug-eyed Hello

 I'm peeking in to say hello to you!  I wanted to show you my one skein scarf (doesn't it go well with the posy from Heather at Blackberry Rambles?) Sorry, the picture is a little scary/cross-eyed!  Ha!
Did you have a happy Christmas?  We had lots of family togetherness and yummy food!  James and Miss Plum Cake love to dance to Grampy's guitar playing.
 We lit the luminaries on Christmas eve.  Waterlogue made this a fun photo!
 I have a new pair of mittens. 
 I was very tired yesterday and it is cold outside here in Colorado.  I sat on the sofa and knit and watched season 7 of Doc Martin.  When I finished the second disc, I watched previous seasons on Netflix.  I just didn't want to leave Port Wenn.  
 I finished Jeff's beanie and the golden neck scarf.  Yay for actual completions for me!
 Today is my lovely mama's birthday!  She's happy because her team the University of Washington Huskies won their bowl game.  She's going to my brother's house to eat salmon.  LUCKY!  She made herself a birthday cake (bananas and whipping cream - her fav!)
We're going to eat soup this week.  Pea soup (we must make use of the delicious bone from the scrumptious ham) and vegetable beef soup.  I was going to have a tea party for the local grands but I may put that off until January.  We'll need a boost then, I think.
I've been reading the bloggers' posts on my iPad but I'll pop over and comment today.
Now, I shall go back to being a couch potato.
Sending lots of love and prayers your way!

You have such bright blue eyes! Lovely to read about your family time, it must be fun for the grandchildren to have a grandpa who plays the guitar! Blessings. Betty

I am so glad your Mom had another birthday and her team won that is so cute. Very good on all of your lovely finishes too. It is cold here too. I was tired, I went back to bed this morning and slept. I never do that but I was so cold. Yay for cold!! I am not complaining.
I think it is cute you have all of your little dancers when Grandpa plays his guitar. Have a very blessed day.

Peace and Contentment for the New Year.

You have beautiful blue eyes! What a sweetie your mom is. We have 2 UW graduates in this old house. We'll have one more in the future, too. I'm ready for a sit on the couch day!
Have a wonderful week.

Merry Christmas, Pom! Your mother looks wonderful. We're eating soup tonight--my pants are too tight and it's time to lighten up again!

I always enjoy time spent in Port Wenn.

Congrats on finishing your knitting projects! Stay snug and warm. Thanks for reminding me to watch some Doc Martin. It's addictive! Nice winter watching. I'd better go do some blogging for you to comment on! :)

Lovely post and those Blue Eyes are so very kind. I'm of the same 'couch potato'mind today but I still have to go out and do things, then it's back to work tomorrow. Did my little card arrive? It's so small, maybe it's floating in the Atlantic Ocean trying to find its way to you! xxx

Great photo of you and happy birthday to your mama!
Christmas time sounds like it was wonderfully full in
your world. I am taking it easy today after all the
bustle of the holiday's.

Wow! You have the most beautiful eyes! :) Love your mittens too. I am watching the Broncos, and it looks chilly where you are. Me too. I wish you a very Happy New Year! :) Kit

Happy birthday to your lovely mum dear Karen. And wow you have beautiful blue eyes. I wished I could knit, I've started to learn to knit but didn't actually have a chance to stop and continue bugger.
Sound like the kids had fun dancing on grandad's music. It makes. Difference when all the family get together for Christmas and at all family events. Can you believe it is new year's in few days. A little scary how time flies.
Thank you for your friendship over the last few years. I am so happy to have met you here in blog land and now in IG as well.
Hope you have a nice day.

Hugs,
Aida

We had quite the ice storm here all day long yesterday so I'm staying tucked in.
Wishing you happy, cozy, knitting, tea drinking kind of days,
