It's time to share our
One of the panes of glass on our sliding glass door got hit by a bb/pellet gun last week. It had shattered but stayed in place pretty well. I spent the morning calling glass companies for a quote to replace it. I got home and the glass had started to come out in chunks and was laying all over the patio so I spent well over an hour removing the rest of the broken glass and cleaning up the broken glass that was on the ground. It wasn't how I wanted to spend my Friday afternoon but at least it was warm and I wasn't out there in the cold or rain doing the same job.
We both went for a haircut first thing Saturday morning. Sean was overdue and I have a standing appointment every four weeks...one of the fun things about having short hair. I told my stylist, whom I love!! (if you live in my area and you need a stylist, I would love to recommend Sarah to you - contact me!), that I was not loving my haircut right now. She made a few suggestions and got started. I am loving the small changes she made because it is easier for me to deal with and looks great!
I went home to get the muffins I made and gift I bought and headed to the Yarn for Breakfast Christmas and Anniversary Party. I have talked about this group on the blog before, but I am happy to say again that I *puffy heart* love these ladies! They are the happiest, smiliest, kindest, and sweetest women I know. They welcomed me into their group with open arms last January, helped me with my knitting, helped me with all my other problems, and gave me a place to feel welcome and happy. With the way this school year has been going so far, I don't know what I would have done without them! The party started with everyone enjoying each other's dishes and chatting. We then did a Secret Santa exchange, the dirty Santa version with lots of stealing of gifts. I ended up with a beautiful skein of fingering yarn (perfect for a pair of socks - my 2014 knitting goal is to learn to knit socks). They did a few prize drawings (the Anniversary part) and then we chatted some more. Before I knew it, 3 1/2 hours had passed. Here are some photos from the party. I had the best time!

Four hours! That's how long I graded papers on Sunday. I got so behind because of my busy schedule and not feeling so great (three head colds back-to-back will exhaust you for sure!). I told myself that Sunday I was getting those papers graded no matter what. Interims go home on Tuesday and I needed to be ready. I am happy to report that, with the exception of one quiz that I left on my desk at school, I am ready for Interims. Whooo hooo!!!
