Happy Thanksgiving

This Thursday is Thanksgiving Day here in the U.S. I’ll be having a quiet celebration at home with just my husband and our boys.

We are very likely going to watch the first 3 movies of the Star Wars series. The boys have been wanting to see them again and I can’t remember the last time I watched them. With my latest gift project being from the Star Wars Crochet book, I’m definitely in the mood for a little Han Solo.

There will also be the traditional roasted Turkey and all the fixings. Between dinner prep and feeding the family I am hoping to have some crochet time, or I might knit on the scarf I’m making for my oldest son.

2015 has been a challenging year, but I have still found much to be thankful for. Here is my list:

I’m thankful for my goofy exasperating brilliant sons and my husband whom they take after (okay they might take after me a little as well).

I’m thankful for my talented and compassionate brother Cy, who lifts my heart with simple things everyday.

I’m thankful for the renewal of my relationship with my Dad and that his health is improving.

I’m thankful for my special circle of friends who still love me warts and all, even after all these years.

I’m thankful for all my friends in the community of crochet that keep me excited about the yarn arts.

I’m thankful for all my lovely readers here on the blog.

I’m thankful for beautiful yarns that bring inspiration and aspiration to my work days.

I’m thankful for the opportunities I’ve had to teach and share crochet with others this past year.

 

For all my US readers I hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving day. Even if you just spend it enjoying some quiet time playing with yarn, watching goofy stuff on T.V. and contemplating the blessings in your life.
