My hostess has been quite remiss in posting our adventures. Rest assured that I HAVE been having a lovely holiday here in upstate New York. The weather has been a bit odd - can you believe it was 65 last week?!? - and I was bit disappointed at the lack of snow. Evidently it really is the "bleak MIDwinter" around here, and not so much white Christmases. Ah well. My hostess' husband's family has been out to visit from the state of Iowa, and they say it is much colder out there. I've not been to this Iowa place, and think I would prefer not to visit until at least the spring...
Much of the holiday season in this house has revolved around the Small Person. She is rather agreeable - as Small Persons go - and I do believe she had a good time. Under my supervision, my hostess finished this, the Small Person's annual stitched ornament:
The Small Person also received many gifts. My favorite was this dollhouse - I had hoped at first that it was for me, but after seeing how the Small Person "plays" with it, I think I'm happier watching from afar.
I have also encouraged my hostess to work on the Labyrinth.
And I posed with her - very full! - ort jar.
My hostess tells me we are to return to her parents' home for another visit this weekend. I'm curious to experience more holiday festivities, and will report back in here in a more timely fashion!
