My Favorite Holiday
Happy Thanksgiving to all my U.S. readers. This holiday brings together the three “F’s” of happiness for me…family, food and friends. Some might add football to that.
The activity of giving thanks is one that is very important for people like me. It puts things into perspective and reminds me of all that I have and at the same time, acknowledges that I am not the sole reason that my life is all that it is.
Having a husband, a home that I love, family members who are amazing and a rich, fulfilling life…it’s truly more than anyone deserves and it’s what I wish for everyone none the less.
As I enjoy the amazing food and relationships with my friends and family today, I find it easy to acknowledge all the privileges that I was given in my life so that I could be at this point.
Thank you also to the readers here for allowing me to share my thoughts, feelings and pride of accomplishment in these blog pages…sharing my life only seems to make it more and more satisfying.
Completed Dolores’ cape so Phase I is now complete.
Also started a new West Coast Watchcap and a new rectangular shawl (both just look like a mass of cast-on stitches).
Finally, I also ordered some cheap neon yarn to make hats for Thaddeus and I when we walk in the woods.
Each year on Gage Day (December 7th), we go up and visit Chaps, Gage and Nico…all are buried in a beautiful protected woods overlooking the Delaware River. Last year, we were chided by an official who saw us for not wearing hunter orange during our walk. So I’ve been looking for a decent bulky yarn in neon orange to make us a couple of hats for this year’s visit.
