More Ordinary Days

I've been knitting more on this blanket. It's from an Ella Rae book called Rug Emporium. I think you could figure it our yourself with instructions for the cable. I think it looks very impressive but it's easy to knit. Trust me!
We've been napping a lot next to the radiators.


I cleaned up the china cabinet so I could fit in my new Christmas dishes.


The girls got into the down comforter that was on Hillary's bed. Feathers were flying. So I redecorated with what I have and I think it looks nice and neat. The comforter needs a patch but I don't think I'll trust them with it again. Yes that's a stuffed dog on the bed. A friend of theirs I think.

I made snickerdoodles yesterday. I should make cookies more often.

Hi B! That blanket is so pretty! I love cables. Those puppies are so cute and look quite comfy & cosy (stuffed one too ;). And who in the world doesn't love Snickerdoodles -- yum!
And I've been thinking about ordinary days lately (love that post title), and I remember ladies of my mother's generation living their 'ordinary days' so graciously -- no rushing around frantically to accomplish ridiculous amounts of 'stuff' every day, but just moving through daily life at a resonable & steady pace, caring for their homes and families and enjoying the company of friends. Sounds good to me.
Blessings,
G
