    Cindy, I'm envious of your thanksgiving plans. I don't see it being anywhere but my house until I get too old to do it. Lol Brenda, glad the antibiotic seems to be working. We've got a 50 percent chance of snow and then snow/sleet/rain today. I have a dentist appointment at noon with errands to run after, so I hope we don't get anything. I just don't drive in snow or sleet. I've just barely started on Christmas shopping. I'm becoming more of a humbug each year and dread getting all the decorations down and back up. It's hard to downsize what you do when everyone expects it all each year.

    Jessie, you've had quite a weekend. Hope nothing's broken. I didn't mind posting and there is no need for you to do it this week. Thanks for offering, though.

    Thanks! I wasn't sure about it to start with but enough is finally done to see what it's going to look like. I have another set of green yarn to find a use for because after I got it, I decided it just wasn't quite right. This is a little darker than the pattern yarn, but I'm pleased with how it looks. Another cute set, darski! How many times have I said that now?! LOL Your work is always great. I used finished another skein of green...+2 = -12.

    Brenda, sounds like a fun evening. And no, I can't believe it's almost thanksgiving with Christmas right behind it. Lots to do to get ready. Yesterday was a long tiring day of driving and sitting but I did finish a thermal stitch pothole while at the Dr's office. DH found out his long time esophageal spasms where actually a stricture in the esophagus which they dilated. If he hadn't been so lightheaded about having an upper gi last fall it would have been fixed then. Lol It's a cold rainy day with our first freeze tonight. I'm trying decide whether to find a place to move a couple more plants inside, or just give up on them.
