Today: November 25, 2008
Outside my window: the sun is low in the west and too bright to leave the shades open. It will be dark in an hour and a half... too soon for this day to be over.
I am thinking: how tired my legs feel after spending all afternoon out and about. I wish DH's coffee drinking buddy were not moving. It is a sad day. On the other hand...it is wonderful that we live in the age of computers and they can stay in touch even from one country to another.
I am thankful: that my clothes that I am planning to wear Thanksgiving still fit! I am also thankful that it will be a year (in about a week) since I have had one cigarette. I am not thankful that I have gained 40 pounds! But I would not exchange the 40 pounds to go back to smoking...it is completely worth it.
From the kitchen: the cranberries and orange are calling! I love fresh cranberry sauce and always make it ...
I am wearing: stretch denim pants with a cotton blue/white shirt...but not for long...lol It's almost time to get comfortable...
I am creating: very little today. Perhaps after supper....
I am going: to start preparing for Thanksgiving with our daughter. This is a real treat since we seldom get to do this!
I am reading: every pattern on Ravelry I can find. And it seems there are so many I will never run out!
I am hoping: to put our tree up the day after Thanksgiving. It should not be too hard this year since it is all stored at ground level...instead of in the attic!
I am hearing: my DH yawn as he settles in his chair..it has been a long day.
Around the house: everything is quiet. I can hear the pulse ringing in my ears. It's very easy to just sink into my chair and relax.
One of my favorite things:
is this picture. It always makes my legs feel that warm swish from standing on the floor furnace. It was so fascinating to watch my dress mysteriously fluff out and just stay there! I did this all the time as a child and can still hear the words... "You're going to burn a hole in your shoes!"
A few plans for the rest of the week: include Thanksgiving...such fun. Then the Christmas tree... also fun.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing:
