Four Lazy Days

The last four days were lovely and I can't show you any of it... yet. I can't show you Santa on the fire truck although he did ride through our neighborhood on Friday night. He was gone before I even got my camera out but I was just really happy that I got to see him. I know it's kind of weird since we're Jewish, but we get a real kick out of Santa on the fire truck and look forward to seeing him each year. Go figure!
I can't show you "The Hat" either. I went to Saturday morning services and saw a woman that I can't stand wearing a hat that would've been more appropriate to the Kentucky Derby. It was huge and blue with mounds of super fluffy, bright blue, feathers piled around the brim. Let me tell you, it had a life of it's own. People were biting their tongues all over the room as she flounced about.
On Sunday I did a lot of cooking. I made stuffed cabbage, carrot cake and more challah. It all came out really well and we'll be eating leftovers for quite a while. Yum!
On Christmas Day we went to see Enchanted and it was very good. None of us are really Disney types - Stinkerbelle is more into super heroes, DQ is too grown up and cool, and hubbo and I are more likely to go for dark comedys - but we all loved this movie. It really was fun for all of us.
The rest of the weekend was spent at home, mostly in pj's, knitting slippers. I was using a different pattern than I used for the first pair and this one was torture. It was all short rows so I was constantly counting - k15,w&t, p35, w&t, k47, w&t, p21 on and on it went. So tedious. Thankfully I'm at a point where I can take a break from slipper hell. I'm really craving a big project like a sweater.

Sounds like a wonderfully relaxing 4 days. Except, perhaps for The Hat.
