Starts the day out right

Happy Black Friday!

No, I wouldn’t dream of going shopping today – that would have been the death of me. Apparently, it was the death of some people (literally). A Walmart door greeter was trampled to death this morning by a throng of early birds and there was a shooting at a Toys R Us store between fighting customers. Nice.

In happier news, I had a lovely, small family Thanksgiving with my parents and 4 border collies (two theirs, two borrowed). This Thanksgiving I am very thankful for the recent election results – Yes we did!
It’s not good to be outnumbered by the neurotic, crazy, psycho pups, but it was so much fun.

Being with the dogs has inspired a new Haiku.

Four Border Collies
Two Tennis Balls, One Frisbee
Never Satisfied

I spent Thanksgiving evening with my great dane niece, Eily, as Sister Catherine had to work. I thought it would be a good time for some great dane cuddle-on-the-couch time (as the Border Collies don’t believe in snuggling on the couch), but Eily wasn’t in the mood. Oh well, it was good being with the goofy girl anyway.

I finally got around to taking some photos of my latest completed knitting projects. I’m most proud of the blanket (a/k/a my burial shroud). This blanket took about 100 hours to knit and was my most ambitious project ever. I am thrilled with the results. (Note – click on image for larger photos).

That’s it for now. Enjoying the long Thanksgiving weekend and will spend the rest of it working on my Christmas Cards – got a real late start – uh oh!

Why yes, that is a hot pink sock monkey

Once upon a time
a sock monkey was born pink
and very stripe-y

What Not To Wear – Target Edition

Perhaps wearing pants
high enough to meet your bra
isn’t flattering

Cruising Time!

Off on my first cruise
I hope I don’t get seasick
No one likes vomit
