I’ve finished knitting and stuffing the Julekuler and have gotten them all packed up to be auctioned off for the scholarship fund of the Sekret Klub my mom goes to. At left you can see some of my collection of knitting bowls — a bowl for each color, and a bowl full of booties in progress, which I can finish now that the Julekuler are off the deck. I got some stiff gold paper, poked a hole in the center of it and put the hanging loops through the hole and taped them down. Then I put them in clear plastic bags and tied them off with a snazzy Christmas ribbon. Because of the bag dimensions, they had to angle to fit into the bags, which is just as well. I made three of each kind: green on red, red on green and red on white, and put one of each in each package. They all needed to be the same assortment, since only one will be held up for bidding. Mom has them now and will be taking them to be auctioned tomorrow
This evening, I consigned the AT&T gear to FedX, so that’s out of my hair, and good riddance, and mailed a care package to my BFF. I got the long phone cord put on the base unit for my cordless phone. I get to coast until Christmas, which will be nice. I’m on the brink of starting “Outlander” I believe I’ll start with the book. Now it’s time this buckaroo was in her beddie-boo.
No apologies for this:

Here’s wishing you and yours a truly happy and trouble-free Christmas and New Year. I hope that 2020 will be a very good year for you.
That packaging you designed is as nice as the gifts themselves. My biggest gift to myself was getting all the boxes unpacked and out of the house. Now, the only tubs sitting around have Christmas stuff in them. I’ll see how far I get with that, since there’s still a bit of ordinary stuff still sitting around, waiting to find out where it’s going to live.
I’m sticking close to home over Christmas, since I agreed to kitty-sit for a friend who’s visiting family in Colorado. I’ve yet to see more than the tail of the cat, heading in the other direction, but even if she’s not sociable, at least she’ll have her dinner and fresh water.
