A Week in Review

This has been a lovely week.  Edgar had the staples removed from his knee, the weather has been decent, David is officially 65 because he got his Medicare card in the mail, and we got stockings. 

MaryAnn from Wisconsin sent us a batch of beautiful stockings for the family parties.  Love the Big W stockings.

On Veteran's Day we had the stocking stuffing party at work, and around 300 stockings were done.  This crew managed to stuff all of those stockings in 20 minutes.   What a wonderful group of co-workers.  This group has been supporting Operation Holiday Stockings for six years.

When I got home I had two packages.  Mary from Wisconsin (yes, Wisconsin again!), knit up another batch of beautiful stockings for us.

Kim in Colorado sent in her beautiful stockings as well.  A friend of hers came over and saw what Kim was doing so she took care of stuffing some of them for us.  

 This fun bunch of stockings were decorated by a Girl Scout Troop in Edmonds.  The little stocking in front looks like happiness and friendliness and I know the soldiers will love it.

Yesterday I spent finishing up a project, with Louie's help of course.  This has taken a long time and I am so pleased with it.  I'll write more about this at a later date.

We now need over 1500 stockings and have 660.  I know we will make this goal, and I am not going to go into my usual panic.  There are a lot of knitters, quilters and sewers out there who have already told me they were doing stockings, for which we are truly grateful.  We seem to always reach our goal, and there is no reason why we won't this year.

Well, I need to get dinner finished and explain to Johnny (again) why little white dogs do NOT smell the Alpha Cat's bottom.
