It pays not to be poultry today

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Days like this give me reasons to ponder.
I have learned to be thankful everyday not just a certain Thursday in November.

  • I have a roof over my head
  • Food to sustain my body, not always the normal 3 squares but why be normal when you grow old, have a slice of pumpkin pie for breakfast or pancakes for dinner once in a while.
  • Employment to sustain my somewhat comfortable lifestyle
  • Two incredible children
  • My best friend/lover/soul mate/partner/wife. Everything is better with you.
  • I must give special thanks to the yarn Gods for Silk Merino and Cashmere, we are not worthy.
  • Leo Fender, George Fullerton and the music gods for without you, the music I love may not exist.
  • Stretch pants for days like these.
  • My friends and family near and far
  • Chocolate
  • To watch Jerry Springer instead of being on the stage.
  • and everyday I wake up for another turn in the circus, no matter what ring I'm in.


  1. We are having dinner together. I have invited the two of you to join me for some reheated leftovers at the dinner table with the pound pup at our feet and the new Pier 1 candle burning in the middle of the table. Bloglines let me miss out on the last couple of your posts, but the good news is I get to enjoy them while I take my dinner break. "Son of My Heart" is visiting his dad tonight and so the house is quiet and I can catch up on your posts. I too am thankful for many things and one of them is this strange thing called blogland and the special people I have met here. Hope you two have had a nice holiday.

    I am thankful for my wonderful hubby and our family and friends. For yarn shops and blogs and books...For silk and cashmere and the awesome Malabrigo. For smooth, sensuous wooden needles and lightning-like Addi turbos. For all the nice people we've met through our obsession with the string and the sticks. Thank you to everyone for the encouragement and the friendship. Happy Thanksgiving!

    P.S. to Punkin - Happy Thanksgiving girl! Now hand over that stuffing!

  3. Thank you for your encouraging words on the blog. I am looking forward to relaxed, creative knitting in the near future. (you are right about the size of the socks - Skylar wears a 12 or 13 men's shoe; next time I am using bigger yarn!)
