Tuesday already?

Good Morning!

Is it Tuesday already?  Is it Spring?  If you read Dee's Blog then you know we had some snow on Sunday.  And wind!  But yesterday the sun was out and it felt like Spring...today, more of the same and it could hit 60!  The wind did do some damage though:

That is known as our "Swing Tree."  It stood (past tense...) next to the start of the trail into our woods.  There was a branch that crossed the entrance to the trail and for years we had a swing hanging from that branch.  Colin spent many happy times swinging high over our boggy area and back into the woods.  Yesterday afternoon Fletch and I noticed that the tree had come down.  Thankfully not all the way because it would have crushed the trellis that Fletch put up recently.  Fletch was able to push the trellis back so that if the tree falls further it will not damage it.  It is going to be a mess to clean up!

So, how was your weekend?  Mine was nice.  I met up with Dee on Saturday at the Farmers' Market (last weekend for it till Spring) and then we went for coffee/knitting/chatting.  We left before we were trapped in Lansdale - lol.  It was the day for their Holiday Parade and they close the streets to traffic.  We escaped in the nick of time.  My Sunday was spent prepping for Monday which was my colonoscopy.  I will say that the prepping has certainly improved...I didn't get sick and was able to keep it all down.  My procedure went well - thank goodness!  It was a weird day after that though.  My history with this procedure is that afterwards I am very lethargic and sleepy, not interested in eating, etc.  Yesterday?  Just the opposite.  Fletch and I went out to eat as soon as I was able to leave the facility.  When we got home I started cooking (the dinner I was making took 4 hours or so to cook) and then proceeded to clean both bathrooms and do 3 loads of laundry.  LOL.  So bizarre after being sedated.  Today I am back at work.

Meanwhile, I was able to get quite a bit of knitting done.

Only a little over half a sock left and my little brother's socks will be finished!  I hope to finish these up this weekend (if not before). 

Thanksgiving I plan to take the Canary Blanket to Colin & Mailing's and spend some time working on that.  Colin wants to watch "The Irishman" (Martin Scorsese's latest) which comes out on Netflix on Thursday - it's 3.5 hours, so plenty of knitting time.

I've made the cranberry/orange relish (my Mom's recipe) and the cranberry chutney (Fletcher's Mom's recipe).  Wednesday I will make two pies.  There will only be six of us for dinner on Thursday - Fletch & me, Colin & Mailing and Mailing's parents.  I'm making a maple pumpkin pie and a pecan pie.  Mailing has the turkey ordered and I'm betting the rest of the meal will be delicious (she makes such a tasty stuffing!!).

Not sure if I will be coming into work tomorrow or not.  The office is closing at 1, so I'd sort of like to not bother...but with being out yesterday, I'll see how it goes.  In case I don't post again this week, wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving.  May your holiday be filled with an abundance of good health, much laughter and plenty of love.  Enjoy!  And safe travels to all on the roads/in the air.


  1. So sorry about the downed swing tree, but I'm glad it didn't crush the trellis. I'm also glad your colonoscopy experience went well and you could cook, clean, and do so much laundry afterwards. Hooray for good food and knitting time - it sounds like you will have plenty of both. Wishing you and the whole family a very Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. You've made fabulous progress on the socks!
    It's sad about the tree, but at least nothing/no one was hurt.

  3. Sorry to hear about the tree, and glad it didn't damage anything. Glad all went well with the colonoscopy.

    Have a happy Thanksgiving. Looking forward to getting together when I get back.

  4. Hello, I am hoping they are right on with the 60°, it would feel nice. Sorry to hear the tree is falling down. The sock looks nice. The prep for the colonoscopy is not fun, I hope all goes well. Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy your day, wishing you a good week ahead!

  5. Enjoy your Thanksgiving day with family, and happy knitting, too.

  7. Oh, wow.....that is one big tree. They are calling for strong winds here starting tomorrow and The Mister and I are a little worried about leaving to go to Son's for Thanksgiving. We'd hate to come home to one of those in the middle of the house. The way we look at we are long overdue.
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  8. Always sad to lose a tree but nice it didn't break the trellis.
    Hope you get tomorrow off--have a wonderful afternoon.

  9. I have never heard of that reaction to sedation after a colonscopy, but it was productive wasn't it?
    I hope you get tomorrow off to enjoy. We'll be prepping dinner and I'll be glad to have Mandy's help. I love having my kids here.

  10. Oh that tree! That is so sad! I am glad nothing was damaged in the tree falling! It sounds like you have Thanksgiving well in hand! (and I am off to look for the movie you mentioned!)

  11. I'm so glad all went well with your procedure and you have the best eating holiday to look forward to!!

  13. bummer about the tree, we have them fall all the time but they are near the woods part of our yard and no swing was attached. Happy Thanksgiving!!

  14. Hope you got in that knitting time as you celebrated the holiday. Glad your colonoscopy went well. I had mine last year and don't have to go back for 10 years! Hooray!

  15. I love those socks!!!! so dark. You are brave. Not sure my eyes would cooperate

  16. I hope you had a good Thanksgiving! The socks are looking great. So sad about the tree, but at least it didn't hit anything on the way down. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  17. The socks look great. I hope your Thanksgiving was as delicious as it sounds. I hate to see those big trees come down but at least it didn't cause any major damage. Stay warm and safe.
