Flying by...

It's been nearly a month since I last posted?


Are you sure? 

I swear it was yesterday.

There have been a few irons in the fire.

Got this boy of mine tucked safely into boot camp:

Realized mid-month that "oh yeah, Christmas is this month, guess I better think about doing something about starting/finishing gift shopping."  Then it hit me that there was not much I could do for two of the kiddos right now.  Talk about a buzzkill!

The knitting and spinning have continued.  Not at the pace I prefer, well, perhaps the spinning has.  Since I am now sleeping even less than normal, what better thing to do at 2 and 3 in the morning than sit at the wheel and let the rhythm soothe my soul.

Christmas Eve found us at home with family making individual pizzas and enjoying each other's company.  Later that night, we were on the road hightailing it north to take advantage of the opportunity to take this one off base for a day of liberty before he graduates next week:

Now I'm really missing this one:

Wasn't it just yesterday that they were happy to wear matching sweatshirts?

And who gave them permission to grow up??? 


  1. I am glad you got up there for his day out! I was in boot camp (Navy) in 1991, and I will never forget that weekend where we were allowed to go out on the town by ourselves! The black-and-tan uniform didn't exist then, so we were out in our whites. What memories that brings back! Congratulations, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!

    1. It was a wonderful day. He was able to bring a buddy with him. They were so funny...just happy to be able to sit in real chairs, be barefoot on carpet, take naps and call friends/family for unlimited talking. Looking forward to PIR in just a few short days.

  2. Woah what a cute photo. I love their sweatshirts.
    Happy New year! xxx

    1. Thanks! At this time in their lives, not so sure they are as happy with that picture as I am...hahaha

  3. It is the holidays, you have more important things to do than blog, great to hear from you though! The sweatshirt photo is classic (my siblings and I had matching olive green sweaters). You must be so proud of them all!

    1. Happy New Year! My boys = my heart.
