|He sees you when you're snacking, he knows when you're awake. Rumor has it Merlin reports directly to Santa regarding naughty and nice lists. That stare tells me I've been naughty. I better make amends!|
It's been a bit busy here on the Periphery with a mad scramble toward Christmas and putting the last touches on things. So naturally I've been procrastinating in my own way, by making things.
|Homemade dog biscuits in the hopes of getting back on Merlin's good side. Specially formulated for senior dogs - but Shhh. Don't tell Merlin. He still thinks he's a pup.|
|Meatballs - from my mother's recipe. Merlin and Max are hoping to score a few of these. That would put me on the Nice list for sure.|
|A new brew of kombucha is percolating. Not for doggies.|
|On the handknit side, a lace cowl made of Peruvian wool. With all the cold weather we've been having, someone will need some stylish neck protection. Now onward to socks! Onward to mittens!|
|On the jewelry side, one of many pairs of handmade earrings being fashioned. This version of a Celtic Knot is in copper with glass beads. I learned a spiffy way to make earwires from YouTube.|
|Max remains indifferent to the whole Christmas thing, preferring to lounge on the bed and watch Star Wars. Of course, his place on the Nice list is assured - unless it's up to his brother.|
