I'd do a little recap of the year, but I think we all know what this year was. I do remember hearing about the wildfires in Australia in January and hearing someone say 'this is the big story of the year' and well, it wasn't, and I'm happy Australia has recovered somewhat from that disaster. It also seems that Australia and New Zealand are some of the small number of countries that got a good handle on controlling the virus (shutting down borders FTW) and so good for them.
Twenty-one days, my friends, and hopefully a bit of sanity will come back to our country. I know there are diverse political opinions among readers of my blog, but we all have to agree that our government has messed up Covid response (understatement) and so far is messing up vaccinations. I trust that President Biden has a plan to straighten this all out and while there's a lot of ugly knots to untangle, we'll be better soon. I'm holding on to that.
We never do a lot for NYE---we cook a nice dinner (meaning Tim mostly)--tonight is seafood spring rolls and pavlova for dessert. We'll watch a long movie (maybe this year it will be The Right Stuff, which we haven't seen for a while, that's still TBD). I'm sure we'll be up til midnight because Fireworks, but we're hoping for a rainy evening so at least they don't start at 7pm.
We end the year with a FO:
And with some geode Artist Trading Cards, which is the January theme for my Ravelry group.
