But wait again! That means that tomorrow is my birthday! And we're finally having our Bible study Christmas potluck and gift exchange tomorrow night. Yes, you read that right. It was supposed to be the week we returned from Omaha, but people were sick. Then last week Dennis was sick. So it's tomorrow. We're still celebrating Christmas, even if it will be in February and my birthday.
Even though it's a Christmas party, I have the kitchen decorated for Valentine's Day. These are the Scandinavian Hearts pattern that is free on Teresa's blog. She's over on my sidebar. They are lots of fun to crochet with cotton thread.
Piper sent us this sweet little thank you card she made for her Christmas presents. She told me that it was Papa, Piper and Grandma. She used the glitter pens that we gave her as one of her gifts. I love her artwork.
I've mainly been knitting on mittens this week, although I did finish a baby blanket and gave it away without taking a picture. (oops!) Eight more pair done!
I had an appointment with the foot doctor this morning. She's fairly certain that the increasing pain in my feet is from arthritis. She also said there is nothing to be done about it. Some days I literally have to go up and down our stairs on my rear end because my feet won't bend to walk the stairs. That's one of the reasons we're planning to move to a one level home or into our trailer in a few years. I don't think it's going to get better. Oh well, she just confirmed what I was thinking was the most obvious conclusion. I know a lot of people have a lot worse problems than that so I will try not to complain.
I also have a dentist appointment this afternoon for my regular check up. Might as well get everything done in one day and be done with it! I actually don't mind going to my dentist. They are so sweet there and they have never hurt me.
It's one of the reasons why it's hard to think of moving when Dennis retires. We really like our dentist and I have a lot of faith in the Heart Institute that takes care of my pacemaker. Lots of decisions to be made in the next few years. The plan right now is to move back to Omaha to be near Mandy and Brad and the rest of our family. We want to travel in our camper a lot too, but would like a "home base," so we shall see what the future has in store for us.
We have had a few days of lovely warm weather. In the 40's and party cloudy. Most of the snow is gone. Yippee! I do know that it's still winter and there is more snow to come, but I'm enjoying each day that is nice and being cozy at home when the weather isn't so nice. With weeks like this though, I'm wanting to go open up the trailer and enjoy the lake! Silly me!
I hope all is well in your world and I think I've gotten caught up on all of your blogs. I hope you have a lovely Wednesday my friends.
