A Yule surprise

My holiday season became a gazillion times brighter last night. I was at church getting ready for the ritual when I glanced to see who had just walked in the door. I saw a very recognizable back of a certain someone's head and let out a squeal of delight (or so I was told!). My dear, dear friends Deb and Suzanne had come from Maryland for the holidays! What a wonderful surprise. I'm not even mad at a certain someone who knew and didn't say anything (although I sense she wanted to based on our last YIM conversation!).

I should have guessed something was up. Not only from Ms. Gemini's most recent post, but also from the conversation we had Friday evening. I had called to ask her opinion on buttons for a hat I was making for Deb. She said I just caught them, they were on their way out to grab a bite to eat, then they were going for a ride. I asked where they were going, but Suz wouldn't give me any answer. I didn't think to much of it, because driving around the countryside is a favorite passtime of theirs. After I got off the phone, I did think for a moment that it was a little late to be going out for a drive, but maybe they were looking at Christmas lights or something. :-D I'm just very happy right now.

In other news, I have a pair of socks. My loving hubby made me a pair of socks for Yule. They are very patriotic. I will try to get a pic of them this week. Along with all the other pics that I have promised. LOL I haven't had a chance to make his gift yet. I make make him a felted tote for his yarn supplies.

And in still other news... the second pregnancy didn't take either. I'm doing ok, I'm in pretty good spirits. Glad that the issue is finally resolved one way or the other. It's disappointing, but I hadn't really gotten my hopes up anyway. This is when being a pessimist makes life easier. :-)

Well, I have cookies to bake (not really homemade, break and bake because I am having a lazy holiday!) and slippers to crochet. We have vespers service at church tonight and I am really looking forward to it. I have missed so much church and socializing because of the pregnancy stuff, and I really miss it.

Take care, all. Have a wonderful holiday, whichever one you celebrate!
