Umm, What happen here?

I know, I know I promised I would add pictures and keep up to date on what was happening at  chez Phipps.Life happened, and I got caught up and carried away with the way things were going.Plus some down time for being ill.
   Let's see where to begin, we have a new renter in the apartment who happens to have a ten year old daughter, who keeps both Mary and I on our toes.She is hyper active, and is constantly moving,  Mary and I are trying to get her to slow down and look at things, Mary has taken the time to teach her how to draw and I'm trying to teach her how to knit.She pays attention when someone is  watching what she does and explains why things need to be done that way.She doesn't enjoy reading which , I have a hard time accepting, at that age my kids loved to read anything they could. She finds it a chore. So Mary and I are looking for the "book" you know the one that made you actually take off and read till it's done, no luck so far. sigh!!
   I have been off the knitting for awhile because of the pains in my hands, I have a cyst in the right palm that acts up if I knit too much and now the left is having issues with the tendons, I have to keep them warm. I have some craft gloves that help, but they interfere with typing,sent Mary on a mission to locate the camera cord in her room, sounds like a hurricane going through. I hate to think what it will look like if she finds it. Waiting patiently, sort of.
  " Breakfast with Santa" is this weekend, for a few hours today I thought I may miss it, my bleeding problem  reared it's ugly head. Hopefully got it under control. We have a rainy weekend for it, it's the open house weekend for the Christmas season in Lodi and also the opening weekend of deer hunting season. The Rotary Club will be helping on Saturday and Sunday it's the Mason's.Tonight is the "Spaghetti Dinner" Chuck is busy working in the kitchen at the Masonic Temple, washing dishes and clearing tables , he has the first shift  tonight.     This time of year is real busy in our small town, Lefse is being made by the Lutheran Ladies,The Methodist are having a Craft and Fiber store, We are having horse drawn wagon rides , decorating cookies with Santa, and the downtown is open for Christmas. I have a little trouble with all the festivities as it's not Thanksgiving yet and the local radio stations are playing Christmas music, our "Breakfast with Santa" money goes to the local food pantry and The Veterans Hospital in Madison, to the volunteers for the patients needs.
No  cable yet, still waiting,  Hopefully will have pictures soon, Have some projects I need to do, Talk to you later , ducking on out.

Best wishes and good for you for looking out for her. I had a friend with a daughter who found reading hard at that age; the Ramona books really helped her want to read.
