Front side of the Inger Ski Gloves that will match my ski hat. I'm not going to let the fact that I don't ski stop me from finishing these. Though rather plain at the moment, these gloves will be embellished with French knots and cross stitch embroidery.
We knew getting into a restaurant after my husband was done working last night would be nearly impossible, so while he was working, I cleaned the house, went to the market and prepared a romantic dinner for two. We had a traditional cheese fondue and a salad prepared with blood oranges, honey sweetened pecans and Maytag blue cheese. Keeping with my cheesy theme, dessert was a store bought, but completely delicious cheesecake. Between the two of us, we polished off a bottle of bubbly while watching Moonstruck. This is a movie that never fails to make me laugh--even after watching it for the 20th time.

Today he's back at work and I work tonight from 8 PM until 8 AM. I'm hoping for a repeat of the last holiday I worked when not a single call came through the hospice hot line. In the meantime, I'm knitting and a little later plan to spin some yarn while I watch some football. With the exception of having to work tonight, I can't think of a better way to spend my day or launch my new year.
Well...Maybe one more piece of cheesecake will make it that much better.
