Happy 2015. I hope it's a better year

Well. It's been over a month since I last posted. Lots has happened.

Mom came to visit for Christmas. It was great having her and the visit went pretty well. The complicating factor was my brother's cancer diagnosis. He has metastatic cancer in several places and just after Christmas he decided to go with hospice care rather than treatment. He can change his mind but I don't think he will. So, within a few weeks to months my 56 year old brother will die. It made for a very sad Christmas for all of us.

My younger son had a seizure (no history of seizures in his life or the family) on Christmas morning and he fell and dislocated his shoulder.

I disappointed my husband by not wanting to go fishing the last several weeks and now the season is over for the Chesapeake Bay (striped bass fishing). I just can't make myself go out on the water when it's in the 40's.

I keep casting on more things and not finishing. I managed a few pairs of fingerless mitts that will be gifts for co-workers but I have soooo many UFOs.

I hope to post a list of goals for 2015 in the next few days. Realistic goals and ones that are important to me for one reason or another.

Try to stay warm. It's supposed to get very cold over the next week or so. It's a good thing I have woollies to wear. :-)
