Happy almost Thanksgiving!
I have to admit that it is nice to finally be home. My trip back up to chilly Washington State was a fantastic one, though I did spend most of it planted in front of fire places with mugs of hot chocolate.
I spent every minute possible with my family and wouldn't trade it for the world. Though next time I really hope they stop trying to fatten me up! In two weeks I helped eat four cakes and two pies, a batch of cookies, and a whole lot of chocolate. Let's just say that my scale is no where to be seen.
Before I left one of my friends sent me an amazing care package. She's funny, I won't hear from her in months and then BAM there's a box of goodies on my door step. I'm slowly collecting things to send to her for Christmas, but I doubt any of it will be as fantastic. First were three gorgeous skeins of yarn!
Then, because of our unfortunate, and shared, stomach issues she also sent me fiber gummy chews and Imodium! Hah! Cracked me up. Oddly enough I love useful gifts and now when I eat my little fiber candy I think of her. So if M.M.M. is reading this, I love you!
Back to my vacation. I did get some crocheting in, though nothing too extraordinary. A scarf and door draft protector for my grandmother, but she is so sweet (at times) and raved about how wonderful my work was. So when we invited her over for a last family dinner before I left she brought me chocolates, tea, and yarn! This may sound like something a typical doting grandmother would do, but trust me, this was an unprecedented act of extreme kindness for her.
So now my yarn bins are overflowing! I have no idea what to make with the six skeins I've recently received, so feel free to leave me some suggestions. For now I do have one tantalizing project that I've been itching to start. Now that Christmas music is freely playing it's time to break out the red and green.
Have a wonderful turkey day everyone!
