Returned to Pittsburgh this evening and a package of Christmas gifts from J in Omaha, awaited me.
She stitched a bright colored tea cozy to keep the tea warm as it steeps.
Love the colors and knitting theme as many of you know I’ve been knitting my way through the winter.
I need a patron saint in the kitchen and will put him in a prominent place in the morning.
Thanks J. What a fun surprise.
Here is granddaughter Anna sporting one of the cowls I knit everyone
The last of the Christmas gifts of fruit.
Starting the day off with refreshing citrus- Ruby Red Grapefruit from Texas.
I don’t use it often, but dug out the old grapefruit knife to loosen the sections. The best part is squeezing all the juice into the spoon at the end.
(Blog follower and Floridian friend Kristin, my guest blogger the other day with with gators on Christmas, is going to enjoy this photograph)
Michael is the only grandchild born in Florida and he’s proud of it.
I was fortunate he was an August baby and I hadn’t started back to school yet so I was on the scene to take care of big sister Anna when Mom and Dad went to the hospital.
The family has a Pittsburgher, two Buckeyes and a Floridian.
This Christmas Santa helped Michael get the proper gear to represent The University Florida Gators.
No one else in Columbus Ohio is sporting these colors around town. They’re all in scarlet and gray, right Rob?
What is your team?
The introduction of the portable electronic world to the children. Matthew came to tell me to get the camera. They never noticed I was there., YIKES. Mesmerized is the word.
