Happy to report that the car is back to running. It was the battery. Fletch was able to get it started and ran it for awhile to charge it up...turned it off...then was able to start it again. I thought we had replaced the battery last year, but it was 3-4 years ago. So, now I'm good to go for the Winter. And, I'm so glad it didn't start at home rather than at the end of the day when I was ready to leave work.
Close to You is now blocking. I gave it a good soak last night and then spread it out. I'm hoping it will be dry so that I can wear it on Thanksgiving day. I put a few more rows into my first Charade sock last night. I'm a tad bit bored with these as I'm making them long (like knee sock length), but I know I'll really enjoy them once they are finished (I need to remember that this is only the first one...). I've decided to not even think about Christmas knitting. I may cast on a hat for Colin (and I do have a pair of socks I made for Mailing), but other than that, nothing. I want to finish what's on the needles so that I can concentrate on NEW and EXCITING things (like ARROWS!!) when the holidays are over.
Today (aside from work) I need to run to the liquor store, Trader Joe's and book a pedicure appointment for tomorrow. Tomorrow, in between making pie crust dough and prepping veggies for Thursday, I want to relax a bit and just enjoy being home. Hopefully that means plenty of knitting time, reading time and, perhaps, an afternoon nap.
Wishing you all a delightful, joyful, restful, tasty and happy Thanksgiving!
