And here's a nice shot of hat sunbathing in my office window and showing off those fabulous jewel tones to the world...or at least the pigeons...
Yes, my lovely office has a fantastic vista of a giant air exchange fan and heated pigeon races. Sometimes I catch myself cheering for one pidgie or the other, chanting to myself "Go Pidge, go!!" Unfortunately, others in my office don't quite understand how fascinating pigeons can be...or maybe I'm just a crazy pigeon-watching nut. In order to discourage Pigeon Derbies, the maintenance people have strategically placed fake owls glaring menacingly down at the pigeons...who summarily ignore them and continue their quest for gold.No fear for the pidgies! Maybe we could all learn something...or perhaps I could just be less bored at work occasionally.
Today, I leave you with this: my pitiful attempt to add some Christmas cheer and happy pine smell to my office. Merry Christmas!! Happy Pidgie watching!

It's also a time to be thankful for the blessings in my life. Even though this year has undoubtedly been the most difficult of my adult life, I'm lucky to have a second chance to find love and not to have to spend the rest of my life with someone who doesn't treat me like I deserve. It's not that I hate my ex, or wish him bad things (not too many anyway)...it's just that I've finally given up on the fantasy of what could have been. I spent so long thinking that even though he left, that he was still the one and that I'd never find anyone else. Several long, hard, soul searching months later, I've finally realized that there are other opportunities out there, other guys, other houses, and other lives.
Seeing as how this is a knitting blog, I'll have to admit...I haven't had much time to knit lately. What with my exam review, my pup, and work, things have been a bit hectic. I'm still working on my hat for Knit Unto Others and have several other things in the queue. After I finish my present wrapping, I should have plenty of time to catch up on the knitting this weekend! Yay!
I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season, don't forget to check out the lights!
