Oh man! What a rainy night we had. I don't know how much fell (Fletch put the rain gauge away before it could freeze in the winter), but it was a lot and heavy. And this morning is mild - just 50 degrees out.
Are you ready for the big feast day? I have not done any cooking yet, but I will get started today making the cranberry relish and the cranberry chutney. The pumpkin pie and the Brussels sprouts will wait until tomorrow.
The other day when I went out for a loaf of bread and left the store $80 later, one of the things I picked up was an amaryllis! At the grocery store! The picture on the box is a red and white one, so I hope that is what we get. I plan to get that into the pot today. There are already leaves coming out of the bulb, so time to get it settled into some dirt. I do confess I seem to be running out of room for plants though. I need to do something about that. Also, two more acorns have sprouted in the yogurt cups on my kitchen windowsill. There will be a little family of oak trees to give to Colin & Mailing for their property.
And here we are on Wednesday, Thanksgiving Eve and it's time to link up with Kat and her Merry Band of Unravelers to talk making and reading. If you read my post yesterday, you know I spent time unpicking some of my stitching, so thankfully that took care of any unraveling. However, there has not been much knitting. The Red Winged Blackbird sock has grown a little bit and a couple more granny squares were crocheted.
A third granny square is near completion, so I'm keeping up with them. I should lay them all out and see what it looks like. Maybe later.
I'm itching to start something new. A shawl perhaps. I double checked the yarn I caked up for a Hitch on the Move, but I may need to re-think that plan. I don't think I have enough of either color. I definitely want that shawl to be large. I do have yarn for a couple of other patterns, so I may start one of them. Stay tuned!
I did finish the William Kent Krueger Book I was reading last week. It was good, but not as strong as some of his other books (my opinion). Now I am about halfway through The Comfort of Crows and it is so good. Just a marvelous book. Very much like her book "Late Migrations" and it is the perfect book to read before turning out the light at night.
And now it's time for another cup of coffee and get started on the day. Wishing each of you a peaceful, relaxing and tasty Thanksgiving - Enjoy!!
