I am happy as a clam to be on break. School was just crazy that last week. I don't think I have ever needed a break quite so much.
The break started out with a birthday dinner for Rachel. My ex-husband actually suggested a photo of three generations: Rachel, me, and my mom:
So far, I have mostly hung out with Rachel and Keith, cooked and crafted. Does it get any better? Rachel always has work to do (that's life in grad school), so she's fine with me sharing the couch -- her on her laptop and me knitting.
While I continue to procrastinate on the Epic Knit, I have been enjoying the Antler hat:
And I'm enjoying my quilting/embroidery project. I've named this technique "Crazy Kantha."
It is Christmas Day, so we will soon be off to Keith's parents' house for dinner. Rachel is at her dad's for a few days, but she'll be back soon.
