Happy Thanksgiving!!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends. May your pants be stretchy, your wine glass full and your family be well behaved. I’m helping my dad cook this year while my mom chases the tiny humans. I feel like we both scored a win with this deal. No knitting content today as I’m off to start peeling potatoes and mixing up stuffing ingredients.

I’ll see you guys on the flip side tomorrow….probably with actual knitting content. I have some really cool stuff started!!

Back Up Plan Thanksgiving

Well, we made the trek to my hometown for a family thanksgiving yesterday. We have gorgeous 60-70 degree weather here in Kansas. It wa on course to be a great trip. Our plan was to have a nice meal with my parents and grandma as the rest of the extended family is out of town.

The best laid plans…..

Both my parents woke up this morning with the flu. My dad had been up and down all night with an upset stomach. So we implemented plan b: lunch at grandmas with just the three if us!

I am truly thankful for my life and those who are in it and all that I have. Today is for hanging with grandma and nursing mom and dad back to health.

And maybe a little knitting and football from the easy chair!
