Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! It's so strange today. I have the day off from work and I don't have to cook the turkey!!!!!!!!!! I have been awake since about 4:30am though thanks to my lovely dogs.....grrrrr..... They started barking at something outside, who knows what, and then when I was starting to drift off to sleep again a half hour later, Buster started whining to go outside in his "I need to go" whine. So, up I got and of course it's a bit chilly and rainy outside and it's still dark so I didn't dare just let them out as I wouldn't be able to see where they went and be sure that none of the neighborhood dogs were out and about seeing as mine are still on quarentine from the rabies exposure. Once I got them back inside, I found myself wide awake and it's about 5:30 and now I need to use the restroom myself. After all this, I decided I might as well make the pies now and then perhaps I can go take a nap before we have to leave for my brother's house. He and his wife are hosting our family this year for the turkey dinner. It will be great since we haven't celebrated this holiday together in several years now. Usually it's just my family, my older brother and his family and my mom at either my house or his. My younger brother is usually with his wife's family. It'll be lots of fun. We usually play alot of different games. I know I do need to play some cribbage with my nephew Marc as the last couple of times we've gotten together we haven't had time to play. I love to play cribbage. I really ought to teach my kids to play! I'm finally finishing up the second sock to the chevron one from SKS book. Yesterday I did the heel and started along the foot part. I think I may be about 1/2way down the length of the foot and then will need to finish up the toe. If I remember, I want to bring them along with me today as my niece told me she figured out how to use dpn's and wants to learn socks. I told her that's great!, but I've found that using 2 circulars is much easier and portable and since these are done are 2 circs, I'll be able to show her what I mean. Well the pies are almost due out of the oven so once again, Happy Thanksgiving!
