Happy Thanksgiving

Boy oh boy!  I just about get over the coughing bit, and then my back goes out.....!!  I'm still in pain, but at least I can walk now, although not like before, yet.  Taking Tylenol like crazy and doing exercises suggested by my doctor.  Then, today, when I should be spending the holiday with my family at my sister's house, I come down with either food poisoning, or the flu.  Who knows which?  Needless to say, I sent my husband to spend Thanksgiving with the family with the 3 pies I made, and I am here alone waiting for him to bring home a bun and slice of turkey for me.  I think this is the first Thanksgiving I've ever missed, so that, in itself, is something to be grateful for......that, plus I am feeling a lot better than this morning.  Needless to mention that I haven't been doing much!

I continure to send my little niece fun envelopes with books.  My granddaughter's envelopes are on hold until she decides to like "easy chapter books".

I'm still knitting socks and continue to love it although I wish I could knit faster.  I'm not a very patient person!  Here is a pair that my daughter-in-law will be getting for Christmas:

And then, amazingly enough, I even started a pair for myself:

So, that's about it!  I hope you are having a marvelous Thanksgiving and sharing it with those you love!  Until later..........

It's been awhile........

How is everybody?  Did you get the "crud" yet that's going around?  Where you cough your brains out and can't stop?  (Hand goes up here, folks!!)  Well, I hope you don't get it.  It's bad.....ask me how I know.  I'm recovering....finally....after almost two whole weeks and a prescription of antibiotic!  Needless to say, I haven't been doing much...except knitting.  Thank God for that!  It took my mind off of how miserable I was!

I did send out some envelopes since visiting with you last time:

And, like I said, I did do some knitting.  Those hot pink ones are mine!  They match a t-shirt that I have and I'm really excited to wear them.......(just as soon as I show my sister).  She is a knitter too and has been knitting socks a ton longer than me.

Then, I made another two, nice, warm, worsted pair for gifts:

Next, I have to start/finish a sock that matches one I made several weeks ago......and after that, I will start on my Christmas cookie baking.  I'm telling you, never a dull moment around here.  Are you feeling the pressure already too?  Eikes!
