Thanksgiving vacation

5 whole days off. Of course 3 of them already spoken for, so in reality it's just a plain ole weekend. Tomorrow of course is spent cooking for Thursday. Thursday is spent with family and eating. Friday is up early and shopping. And I hope to get my new tree up and decorated on Friday too. But even with all that Thanksgiving is becoming my favorite holiday. It's just about being with family and food. There's no pressure to give the perfect gift. No unrealistic expectations, except maybe the food. ( And quite frankly if you serve what you've served for the last 30 years everyone is pretty much happy.) This year even the weather is more like Thanksgiving. No snow on the ground and above average temperatures. Perfection in my book.

I coming along with my knitting projects. Four down and 2 more to go for the grandkids. Maybe some surprises along the way for others too.

I went looking last night for electronic drumsticks. Cool idea but maybe not such a cool thing to find. I just started though. Goal for the weekend. Majority of shopping done. List of things to bake written and house decorated. Can she do it? Tune in Sunday night.

Hark I still do know how to get into blogger! Since the last post was September I figure it's about time to do it again. Life is pretty much the same old thing. I need to put a new blog header and a new blog agenda in place and see if I can't stir up some excitement in the blogging area.

This is the last weekend before Thanksgiving. How did that happen? We are going to go over to Steve's folks. Of course we'll have to bring all the food, but every year I think it might be the last so I don't mind. I do need to call Steve's sister and make the final arrangements. I'm looking forward to Christmas. I feel like like I'm more ahead of the game this year, though I'm sure next week I'll be complaining about being so behind. See I'm never happy. Amy and I are going to the Festival of Trees tomorrow. We've been doing that since Kyra was still in a stroller. Helps get us in the mood. Steve is off all this week and I hope he gets the Christmas lights up. It's projected to be in the 5o's. Can't beat that.

I've been knitting up a storm, though today I'm being super lazy. I'd take pictures and post except that some are presents. Wouldn't want to spoil that surprise! Scrapbooking has been haunting me. I still want to do it but can't seem to find any inspiration. Maybe I just need to get in there and do it.

Well this might be a boring post but at least I posted. Good night all!
