Almost 2 weeks since my last entry, but what a full 2 weeks it has been. Very cold weather….the kind where all I want to do is sit, knit and drink hot tea. Which is exactly what I have done when I finished working for the day!
Got to babysit for my beautiful granddaughter, Linley, a couple of times in the last weeks and what a joy it has been to see what joy this baby has brought to our family. She is absolutely beautiful, but then again…what would you expect me to say??!!
My knitting group has been pretty active, or should I say, I have been active in my knitting group. I went to Thursday night knit at my LYS and again to Vienna Coffee Shop on Sunday. Wonderful group of women!
I went to Calgary for a business trip but was unable to do anything but work. All day travel on Monday, work Tuesday and all day travel Wednesday. However, I did get a lot of knitting done! I was able to turn the heels and am working up the leg. Not much longer!
My husband and I were able to complete a huge milestone on Friday. I am happy to say we are completely debt free! Our journey started when a good friend of mine was affected by a reduction in force at my company. She was so distraught and it really opened our eyes for that particular journey. So, we are done!
Nothing completed at this time…

As I sit and start this new Journey, I must reflect a bit as the new year has started. My plan is to update every Friday of the year to reflect upon events.
I absolutely love being a Grandmother! I adore this new life journey and accept all that it has to offer
This year has not started as I expected. I have lost 2 brother-in-laws, one unexpected and the other had some health issues, so not entirely unexpected.
Knitting goals have been set and I must say I am totally on track.
Personal goals have been set and completely on track.
Stash restriction is a bust and the month is not even over yet (I have more coming in the mail…..it is very bad…)
On the Road
I went to Vogue Knitting Live-NYC a couple of weekends ago. It was lovely! My friend Jeana and I were able to walk around NYC on Saturday without a coat! However, the next weekend, NYC was about 1/10th of and inch short of the record amount of snowfall. We were so happy we were not there…..We did not take classes but went to the market, bought souvenirs and went to a meet-up with some podcasters as groupies! Had a fantastic time!
