Last year we weren't able to celebrate much - I hadn't started my job yet, and the husband's job had cut back his hours, so any funds we had were saved to be put towards the bills. This year was a different story! Thanks to my new responsibilities at work I've been putting in a lot of overtime hours, and the husband has a new job, so we were able to enjoy ourselves a bit more. We were even able to go on a mini vacation and get away for a night!
I hope your holidays went just as well as ours!
I'm still plugging away at the ravenclaw scarf when the boys allow me to knit.
(even then it's under protest)
I'm currently on the sixth stripe and it's going pretty well. I love how the colors look together - they aren't quite what the pattern calls for (I think they're off a shade or two) but they're just so gorgeous!
And they go quite well with my new bracelet!
I'm also still writing when I can. The story - the title of which is now The Undying Ones - comes in spurts and it's currently clocking in at 30,000 words. The average novel is about 50,000 words. I've also been tinkering with a short story I started for giggles one day, and I just updated my FF.net account for the first time in over a year.
