Thanksgiving (US) Wishes

Yes, I know some of you aren't in the US (hi Sam and "Knittingwoman"!).

It was probably a good thing to have a nice, boring American holiday today, since I have been having the most emotionally intense week since I can remember.

Everything was nice and normal today, other than my poor sister being really sick--but she was a trouper and helped me cook the fine and delicious meal. We had a nice time talking about our jobs and lives. Nice to be getting along well with her. And she and DP got on fine--he helped her with a new camera. It was my most stress-free holiday in ages. The whole family was fine and charming, though I am slightly worried that the corgi's eyes may be hurting her.

I've had some nice talks with friends in the past two days, in IM or phone, and I am so grateful for modern conveniences like that--you need to keep up with the lives and families of people who matter to you (so send vibes for NJ's father-in-law). Phones and stuff mean you don't get cut off from important people for days on end. Mostly. OK, so Work Man went away for 5 days. I'll have to be strong, ha ha.

In knitting excitement, I finally ended the body of my silk garden sweater, which I now declare to be a tunic. They are in fashion. The border is a seed stitch stripe. It looks nice, I think. On to arms!!! Tomorrow I hope to spend quite a bit of time at the yarn store working on it, and getting some stuff on sale--I'll need more border yarn and probably more silk garden, which I reserved.

I hope your day was wonderful, readers!

translation: I did not talk to Lee over the Thanksgiving holiday until Sunday. I did email him a few times and he emailed me. But not much. I had no clue what he was thinking about or planning. I didn't know WHAT I was going to do, just that I wished he wasn't gone.

Happy Thanksgiving! I am glad you had a good day. I love reading about how other people celebrate holidays.Take care(and HUGS for your broken ring!! I know how I feel when my fingers are in such bad shape that I can't wear mine and it's sad.)
