It's Christmas Eve, and for many, it will be a time for celebration, good food, wine glasses tinkling,good company, laughter and cheer.
For DH and me, it will be a time of reflection, of look-backs on the business, and life in general.
Things I started, and actually finished:
Almost to the day, I finished the Agatha Cardi. Once I realized it was going to be too small, I nearly ripped it out! The gauge was perfect, it was the yarn that made it seem smaller. Paton's Encore Tweed has just enough bounce to give it a nice mesh, and kept its shape nicely after blocking
When DD20 saw it, she had to have it, so my work was not a huge loss. In fact, it fits her perfectly and she loves it!!!
DD20 is ready for her night out with her Fiance, for a Christmas get-together at his sister's house.
For Christmas this year, I made fudge for all my family and friends, and also found this cute FREE PATTER at Red Heart Yarn's website.

I've got into reading Kindle e-books in the evenings. Really nice on my Xoom, in that I can read while DH is sleeping, and not have to have a light on and disturb him.
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I thoroughly enjoyed the Kindle edition, with the old photos, etc. The characters were very likable, even believable with their peculiarities. I was a little disappointed by the abrupt ending, but I suppose it was my inner desire for the book to go on and on and on....
A keeper, I will read this again!

The weather has been very mild this season, not enough snow to even feel like Winter yet. The bikes are parked in the garage, under their covers, and with the milder temps in the low 40's, it's hard not to want to go out for a short ride around the 'hood.
DH got me a new Harley-Davidson vest for Christmas this year; I LOVE IT! Then today when we were at Frank's, Liz at the liquor store said she had a pair of chaps that would fit me perfectly. WHOOT! With those, I actually could go out and not freeze my bum off!!!
For me, it's all about the ride, staying safe and coming home with the usual silly-ass grin on my face. While multi-tasking is a big part of the ride, I can usually manage a fleeting glance here and there along the way while keeping my face sunny side up.
I didn't want to forget to mention the GatorSkin top I got late last Summer. It's 3x's warmer than wool, and is perfect for those chilly 50's days!
The backside ain't too shabby, if I do say so...

Igor wishes everyone would come over for Christmas, so he can has lots'o People to play with!!!!
