Holidays

Before Thanksgiving I dreaded the days that were coming. My anxiety was for not. All has gone well so far. My family was able to be here and we shared some good times together. Christmas was special, especially being able to see the grandchildren playing together. I will cherish those memories. My friends were here too. My friend Mary was here to share a special day with me. My father died the week before Christmas and she shared the day with me. We went to see the movie, "Seven Pounds." I won't say too much, but will say it was a downer. The best part of the day was spent just talking. I forgot how much I missed talking with her. She has good insight and knowledge about life and how to live. Her faith in the Lord is also important to me too. Then there was my friend that lives in Fresno. I tried to visit, but unsuccessfully. I hope to make it before the end of January.
I finished my knitting before December, but as I was wrapping gifts, I couldn't find one pair of socks. I started to panic and decided to make another pair. Well, as you probably guess, I did find those socks and will be giving both pairs for a gift.
Just after before Christmas, I went with another friend shopping at a new fabric store in the El Dorado area. Of course, I didn't get away without a little fabric. We also stopped at a knitting store Sierra Knitters. There they had a bracelet knitted from wire. (I did try it and I enjoy making the jewelry. I made my first, but want to make a few more before I give away any of them.) We decided to go see the movie, "The Day the Earth Stood Still". That was a better film.
Movies seem to be the theme for Holidays. Betty and I went to see a movie on Sunday, "Marley and Me". It was a cute movie and I was glad to see it.
