More Knitting

This afternoon, Jon and I went to a graduation ceremony for our friend Jodi (the same Jodi I mentioned in my previous post: For crying out loud, I'm KNITTING!!). Anyone who has ever attended a college graduation ceremony knows that they are boring and long, and the entire point of going is to wait for one person's name to be called so that you can cheer for them and their achievement. So, I took a small knitting project with me. It is a dishcloth, and is intended as a Christmas gift for none other than Jodi and her husband. Little does she realize that I spent most of her graduation ceremony knitting!

Point of Grace

For anyone who does not know, Point of Grace is a Christian singing group made up of three women (it used to be four, but one recently decided to take some time off to spend with her family). Tonight, Laura and I had the opportunity to go to a concert of theirs, and we had a wonderful time. I love their music, and I am glad I was able to go to the concert.

Their special guest was Ronnie Freeman, another Christian artist who sings and plays the piano quite well.

We Have a Tree!

Despite our having talked about it at length last Christmas, I wasn't sure that we would get our new tree this year. But it went on sale for Black Friday, saving us $10 on the cost of the tree (my discount would have only saved us $3.50), so we got it. I cleaned out the area where it was to go and set it up. I did no shaping, nor do we have many ornaments (I have one that I inherited from my grandmother, one of Jon's that we found on a shelf, and five Coke bottles that are round to look like ornaments - none of which are on the tree in these pictures), but we have a tree up, and that is enough to make me happy (at least as far as the tree is concerned). As we receive them, I am also putting our Christmas cards into the tree. It's a really neat look, and I'll have to take a picture of the tree with all of the cards in it right before we take them all down.

With a toddler in the house, he's in nearly all of the pictures I take. I figured at least one of them should be intentional!
