Best present ever received: noise canceling headphones. Step One: attach to Kindle and turn on any book to Text-to-Speech. Step Two: place headphones over ears and turn on. Step Three: take the best nap you ever had in your whole life. The End.

When I did manage to finally exit the monotone induced coma and return to this world, there was a bagel sandwich (which had waited two hours for me) and chai. After stoking up, I completed a new crochet hot mat and went back to work on Shark Tooth Shawl. Photos follow.

The cats are now too large to summit the tree, which means maybe we will try a few random decorations next year. I hope your Christmas day was restive or at least all that you hoped for.
Loads of Love, Mary Ellen
