♥yummy traditional dinner
♥traditional Italian dinner at the Fitzpatricks: Ann's promised to teach me how to make her homemade sauce, there was pasta of all shapes, baked pasta, and a variety of meat sauces,
this is the second year we've been to their house on C.mas Eve, and it amazes me how many people are in their home on Christmas Eve for this special dinner: friends, family, neighbors, always a warm and welcome feeling.
♥Christmas Eve Service-peaceful and spirit filled
♥more yummy food
♥presents- Elvis yarn from Toasty, rosewood dpn and a yarn cutter- thanks Steve!
♥a full day of TV watching new DVD's: To Catch a Thief, Vicor of Dibley (last two episodes); Bourne Ultimatum;
♥early bed time- a bit of reading on Love over Scotland
Trip to Only Ewe and Cotton Two, and a note about this one: Elyse, who has only met me twice, and has exchanged two emails with me indicating she would set aside two balls of Lacey Lamb--knew me right off the bat and why I was there- wow- the wool is a beautiful shade of charcoal and I think this next SOTS will knit up beautiful.
Elyse also gave me the discount that she was going to be offering next week, so the yarn cost me .41 since I had a gift certificate- thanks mom! Now how's that for service. Oh yeah, I got a gift card from Mom for ATL, and got a cardigan, sweater, l-s T, and a pair of cords for $12.50! Yea keep those gift cards coming-
Now for my most unusual Christmas gift, not something I would have asked for, but considering Steve pulled through at Knitch I'm totally okay with this
- I got a:
yes, your eyes are not deceiving you it's a faucet, and I think a very cool looking one at that- this is for the powder room as the one we have makes a horrid noise that Steve can't seem to repair- love it!
Here's more photos from the last few days.
