There are times that I like to take my laptop computer with for different projects away from home. But I don't want to haul out the big heavy computer bag I have. And at these times, I really don't need to take the power cord, extra discs, etc, just the laptop. I have been looking at the computer sleeves that are for sale in the stores. Well, it got me thinking. Why buy, when I can go to my yarn stash, find some yarn that I like and make a sleeve for the laptop. And viola, I did it in a couple of days. This will help to protect my laptop when I take it some where with me and I can leave the laptop in the sleeve when I do use the big bag.
I used a cotton yarn, size h hook and just crocheted a bag with a flap to fit the laptop. It is gonna work just fine.

Today is Christmas Day. The day we celebrate the birth of Christ. Savior of the world. This is Angel in one of her Christmas sweaters. I got her two, but one is too small, has to be replaced. She does like her sweaters. She also received a new blanket that I whipped up in a couple of days. She really likes blankees. Our first Christmas in a long time without our George. He is missed very much.

No pictures this time. Just some thoughts on this time of the year. Have been sitting here all day long looking out the window at the fog. We have had a very cold fog here and it doesn't look like it is gonna lift anytime soon. Visibility has been no more than 1/8 of a mile if that. And that is in town, so out on the highway, it is probably worst.
It is December 20th, four more days to Christmas. I have done all my shopping, although tomorrow, I am thinking of getting Angel another sweater. I have gotten her already and the past couple of days I did crochet up a quick blanket for her. As if she really needs another sweater and blanket. But as this is our first Christmas without our George, trying to make it special for her.
As Marshal has a doctor's appointment tomorrow and we didn't want to brave what the weather could be this year, we are staying home for the holidays. Which is fine. I would like to be with Mason this year also, as he is older and will be more fun on Christmas Day. I sent off my packages the other day. I do believe that this is the last year for packages for Christmas. It just costs too much to send the packages. My thoughts are to send gifts on birthdays and probably gift cards for Christmas. That way, it won't take too much out of the wallet this time of the year.
The countdown for Christmas is on and in 4 more days Christmas will be here.
