So, I didn't take enough pictures on actual Thanksgiving.  I think that's what happens when you are hosting.  There's too much to do, too many opportunities to socialize, and I think I forgot about my camera for half of it.   It was a terrific feast and the company was awesome.  I loved using my new table for a real purpose (not that everyday breakfast eating isn't purposeful) but with the additional leaves and all.... So, yeah.  It went well.  And below is the link to the few pictures I took to prove it :-)

Thanksgiving 2013

Tuesday, November 12, 2013


So, I haven't been able to stop knitting lately.  It's the best.  It gives me something to do with my hands, keeps my mind focused, and at the same time, it's a total distraction from the daily grind.  

Lots has been going on with me.  I joked that I'm in a mid-life crisis to my therapist.  I only meant that because now that I'm done having kids, I feel like I'm re-finding out who I am; who I really want to be; how I want my life to look.  

So between all my deep thoughts (or sometimes right in the middle of them) I'm knitting.  I'm proud of each project and have even more on the needles currently.
