'Tis The Season

....and I would really love to just phone it in.
I am not truly feeling any Christmas spirit whatsoever.
We managed to erect our Christmas tree. It does look lovely. I am so proud of the fuzzy children because they seem to be behaving themselves.
Unless of course, they are lulling me into a false sense of security and the proverbial shit will hit the fan any day now.

A few items have been purchased and a few have been made to show my appreciation for family and friends.
This is a toque I am currently working on called Frosted Pine.

I am really enjoying this pattern. There are a few different cables and twists that give me a sense of awe when I see them emerge in the product.

We are also debating about whether we will be visiting my parents for the holidays. There has just been so much drama over absolutely nothing and I just do not have the energy to deal with it. If I really think the situation through, I would love to just stay home. Spend time with my little family and just enjoy doing normal stuff. We could have a nice meal. Watch a movie or two. Find a use for the mountain of snow that has fallen in our little world. In the end, it will most likely be guilt that takes me across six hours of actually pretty scenic roads. I think that this is the reason behind my melancholy. It will pass. I try to remember that I am really fortunate that I have everything I could possibly need. There are many people out there who would feel blessed with even a third of everything that we possess.

Thank you for letting me vent a bit. Jackie and I are going to catch up on Supernatural and call it a day!
Night everyone.
