These last few days are fun for me. Even though every year I say I am going to have everything done so I don't have to scramble...I kinda like the scrambling but in moderation. Today I got off work early. I did a bit of last minute shopping and then made my annual Christmas marshmallows for my family. These are the second annual Christmas marshmallows to be exact.
I also finished up my Navajo ply yarn. I used Navajo-Churro wool that I picked up a few years back. It is pretty funny, I procrastinated with learning how to Navajo ply. It just looked so absolutely complicated! But, with the help from The Joy of Handspinning I discovered that it is so very simple! I have waited all this time for nothing! I really like the way the wool looks when it is Navajo plied. It reminds me of some of the things that I have seen in Chimayo.
We spent this past weekend celebrating the Holiday with Jeff's family. I made peppermint brownies to take.
I also spent about 4 hours wrapping gifts. Who knew it took that long? You know, I think in years past I would wrap as I bought. This year I obviously did not do that. Note to self: you could be spinning yarn during that gift wrapping marathon. Next time, wrap as you purchase.
Jeff's little brother stayed with us from out of town. After my 4 hour Christmas prep marathon I finally took a break and played Dance Central on his Kinect. Taye was my favorite Avatar. I had a blast dancing to King of the Dance Hall by Beenie Man.
Now, I am off to go see The Fighter with a very dear and longtime friend!
