Happy New Year!

A picture from the top of the hill in the park near my house in Victoria, BC. Happy New Year to all, and I will post more next year!

'Tis the season

It's definitely Christmastime. This weekend was my work Christmas party and it cut into my knitting time. I usually manage to knit for a while on Saturday night while we watch a dvd of some type, but I had to go out and be social.

It was a fun party, even though the activity (a funny money casino) wasn't exactly my first choice of things to do. The food was most excellent. Some of the tenderest lamb that I've had in a long time...I'm drooling just thinking about it.

I do have knitting and spinning progress to report. I just haven't managed to get pictures off of my camera yet...I'm quite happy that I got the pictures taken while there was actually decent light on Saturday.

And to make things even more fun, I'm trying to treat my dog's paws with an over the counter remedy recommended by the vet. She keeps licking them to the point that she's hurting herself and I haven't been able to get her to quit. It seemed like allergies at first, but antihistamines didn't help, so I'm trying this. The vet did prescribe something that worked very well, but I don't want to pay for another visit if I can avoid it. Not sure if that's going to happen.

Ah well...the dog wants something. I guess I'd better go see what.
