I stitched up the first two blocks for the Stitcher's Timeout monthly block exchange this weekend. January's theme is "Blue and White" and February is "Friendship". I also did some more work on "Gingerbread Cottage, but it is slow going for some reason. I really like it though. I wanted to start a new project today, but haven't yet. I've been feeling pretty sick all day. We took down all the decorations today. Now I think I'll take a nice long bath and see if I can't put at least a few stitches into something new!

Happy New Year! It's very cold here today, but dry. We spent a quiet New Year's Eve...Chinese dinner out (a tradition) and then we came home and watched the last of the "Pirates" movies. I thought it was fun. And when it was over we had 5 minutes till midnight. Usually we are in bed way before that!

We had a bit of a scare with our dog Boonie last week. He was feeling pretty lousy so I took him to the vet and he was dehydrated and pretty sick. They pumped him full of fluids and antibiotics and "good" bacteria and luckily he bounced right back. I hate it when our furbabies are sick. I don't know what I'd do without them!
