Behind Schedule

Behind schedule - the story of my life.

With a visitor from Hearst with us this week, it was much more fun last night to go out to dinner - especially since our guest was treating - than it was to stay home and knit.

That meant that this morning, being the first up, I was playing knitting-catch-up. By Thursday, the goal was to be finished the foot on Sis' Sock. Instead the foot was about half finished.

Now, after my pre-breakfast marathon of knitting, I am almost finished. The foot that is.
Close enough that I am sure to be able to finish the toe by bed-time tonight. Unless of course we are again invited out to eat.

All of this, as Thanksgiving approaches, makes me grateful. Grateful for needles and yarn. Grateful for eyes and fingers that still work. Grateful for a sister that appreciates my knitting.
Grateful for friends that treat us to dinner. Just plain grateful.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian readers. And to non-Canadians readers, why not cook a turkey? Just for the sheer pleasure of the smell and taste.

Oh, don't tempt me...I LOVE turkey! :-) Have a Happy Thanksgiving, and don't feel too bad about being behind schedule. My husband has been on vacation the past two weeks, and I haven't gotten anything done the entire time. People will think I've dropped off the edge of the earth. My house thinks I've dropped off the edge of the earth. Monday - life returns to normal. LOL!

Happy Thanksgiving! Canadians are much more sensible about having Thanksgiving in October than we do here in The States so close to Christmas.
