My weekend was spent doing two things ….. raking leaves and working on Halcyon. I am thrilled and slightly stunned frankly to report that the first sleeve is done and I am onto the second. I didn’t think I would have a chance in hell of finishing this for Christmas and it is looking like it might happen – possibly with time to spare! hope I didn’t just jinx myself.
As soon as I finish this entry, I will be off to the grocery store to start the Thanksgiving preparations. For the first time in maybe forever, it will be just the Boar, Girls and me. I am so excited to have it be just us – we will be going to a friend’s house for dessert. We have always had company, or been company. Not that I don’t like company, but this is a welcome change. And it is a guilt free change. Everyone else (all the extended family) has flown the coop!
It is giving me such a happy good cozy feeling and now the weather report is for snowshowers. That will be the icing on the cake – the whip cream on the pie – the stuffing in the bird –
all you bloggers out there, I know you take pictures of your projects, but do you save the specs anywhere but on your blog? I am thinking it would be a good idea to keep a file on my computer.
Or the embellishments on a Costco cheesecake!!
Wow! Ann! YOu are doing wonderfully! You’ll have that sweater down in no time!
You’ll never get it done! Not in a million years.
(There. I just reversed your jinx. ;-) )
So, we’re having our first Thanksgiving at our house. My husband and I have always had our parent’s to cook for us. 9 people! Can I put you on speed dial?
You are so going to get dope slapped by the Knitting Goddess. You know better than to speak positively about a work in progress!
I don’t keep files of my projects but I should. Sounds like a New Year’s resolution in the making.
I’ve started saving the specs on my computer. I’ve always meant to but I never got around to it.
Sounds like some fun plans in the works! Enjoy! (I’m POSITIVE you will finish!)
Oh my! You are going to town and I KNOW you’ll be done with time to spare. Enjoy your Thanksgiving, Ann!!
you mean you aren’t sad and disappointed that we aren’t coming down for thanksgiving? only kidding. you are entering a new phase of holiday celebrations and there will be even more changes to come as i am sure you know.
Way to go!! No jinx, no way. You Can Do It.
I received a Smith & Hawken catalog over the weekend and it may have pulled me out of the Scrooge-y slump I’ve been in… the holidays are a’changing, our family dynamics, too. I figure I deserve a few Scrooge years (encompassing all cold-weather holidays) — time to bank energy for when there are wee ones to get excited for again. Someday. Maybe. Not yet.
Happy Thanksgiving from Germany. We are usually just family because it’s, obviously, not celebrated here.
I have to say I laugh everytime you say the Boar.
Got to get my hubby a good name like that.
Does he know he’s the Boar?
Do you have the expression ‘useless as tits on a boar’ out here?
Just free-associating in your comments space,
Happy T-day, xox Kay
