New Year's Eve was very rainy, although there were fireworks from a little before midnight til about 1. That was much better than last year when they started at about 7pm and just kept going. We watched "The Irishman" which was a good NYE movie--3 1/2 hours long and interesting enough (and well-acted) that we stayed up.
Well, I'm on the last part of the MKAL shawl and this should serve as a reminder to me as to why I don't like MKAL.
The last part is basically 'filling in' the triangle to 'match' the other triangle. It's fine. I'm not crazy about this pattern. I love the colors but the whole shebang is kind of uninspiring to me. Oh well. Live and learn.
I finished "The Daughter" which I liked although the 'back and forth' got tedious and the final twist in the last chapter got me rolling my eyes like no one's business. I have another book by the same author called "The Playground" which I'll read (it is described as "Big Little Lies" meets "Lord of the Flies" which is a bit too high concept but yeah). Today my plan is to curl up with a book and knitting and enjoy one of our last days on the coast this trip.
One last view of our Christmas tree.
*Almost all---one ornament was left on the tree and I heard it there when I hefted the tree over the deck to let it fall on the driveway, where Tim chopped it up. After he filmed a slo mo video of it falling. Anyway, I was certain that whatever ornament it was would be a goner, but Tim found it unbroken. Amazingly, it was an old glass ornament that I *think* was sent to us from my Aunt and Uncle. It is a little house with a giant turkey.
That's it from here!
