Food |Knitting |Miscellaneous Musing by Judy @ 9:21 AM

OK. Not really. But I must have been wound up tighter and more concerned about #1 Son than I was letting on, even to myself. Right after he arrived home yesterday morning, I was overcome by sleepiness and couldn’t even keep my eyes open. So I went back to bed. And slept until noon. I can’t remember the last time I did that, but I know it’s been years. Despite that, I went to bed fairly early last night. Vacation is a good thing!

#1 Son wasn’t home for very long before he was off to see his friends and to go to work. He came in very late last night. I probably won’t see much of him. Good thing we have a little enforced togetherness coming up next week to give us a chance to catch up. 😀

Not much knitting yesterday, but I have made some progress on the socks since the pic I snapped a couple of days ago. I do have hope these might be finished by the end of the year, if I don’t get distracted. I’m just about ready to begin the gusset increases. I think I’ll make these “clog socks” and work the twisty faux cable pattern on the heels, too.

Tomorrow we will go over the river and through the woods to grandma’s house (that’s my former in-laws) for Christmas dinner. We didn’t have big plans for Christmas day, so the invitation to come for dinner was a pleasant surprise. It should be fun. (My ex will not be there.) Or at least tasty. Grandma is an excellent cook!

I’m going to make some risotto to bring for #1 Son. Grandma is having ham, and risotto should go well with that should others want to share. I still have to decide what to put in it. (Yes, yes, I hear you out there. I mean besides rice.) I’m thinking veggie stock as a base, or maybe tomato soup… and onion, mushrooms, bell peppers, beans… should be good.

Today I’m feeling much more like a “real person,” and that’s a good thing because I have a bunch of running around to do!
