Throwback Thursday: Christmas 2015 In Troy, New York

Generally the Prock family rotates with cousin Debbie (mom’s cousin) for the holidays, but with mom having health issues, we’ve been spending Christmas with cousin Debbie at her house. It’s nice to have to bring a dish and spending time with the family. I love taking photographs of Christmas trees, the holidays, and photos of the family. For Christmas 2016, we’re spending the holidays with cousin Debbie. Debbie loves to be the hostess at all kinds of parties and is creative with her parties.
This Christmas tree is in her dining room in her home, along with a white Christmas tree in her living room. Christmas dinners are also my favorite part of the holidays. With the appetizers, main meal, and dessert. See new Christmas photos from Christmas 2016 in the next week.

Unique Article: The Telegraph

While finishing my bohemian blanket for my bed yesterday, I decided to take a small break and flip through Facebook.  Flipping through I stumbled on this article about knitting, crocheting, and mental health.  Briefly reading this article about the history, mental relaxation of knitting and crocheting and decided to share it on my Facebook profile.  While thinking about how crocheting is my business, I love crocheting, and how it relaxes me, I decided that I wanted to write a small blog about what I think of this article.  I like this article because it talks about knitting and crocheting in the past and present.  To read this article, simply click on the link shown, http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/11/25/knitting-crocheting-jam-making-improve-mental-health-study-finds/
