Happy Thanksgiving Week 2016 Let‘s play Question and Answer. I’m thankful for you playing along, it really helps me know you better!
*So it got cold here! What’s a silver lining for you and the cold? (the crazy bugs are dead. I’ve never seen so many bugs now that we live in the countryside. Box elder beetle invasion was nothing short of creepy at first!)
*Did you have an AHA! moment while knitting this weekend?
(I did! I realized my never ending blanket would have ended it I hadn’t knit it in the round. It would be twice as long and done! See the little blue yarn above? That’s the END of a leftover ball of sock yarn. Made me feel so frugal to have knitting that leftover baby to the end!)
*Have you begun your holiday Thanksgiving prep or baking? (It’s officially Thanksgiving week. I made the cranberry bread you see in the images, yesterday. It is Martha Stewarts quick bread recipe. Fireman says it was the best loaf ever, because you add the entire 12 oz bag of crans to the batter. )
*Have you stepped out of your fashion comfort zone lately? (Yes, and this does not mean I got out of a sweatshirt! It means I bid on a rather glitzy gold purse at the shelter Gala, and won it. So I am using my glitzy purse whilst wearing my Jeans and usual. Tim Gunn would shudder at the mix !)
*Did I thank anyone this weekend? (you bet! I’ve thanked our realtor in Wisconsin. She didnt tell us that while we sat in our hot tub under the stars we’d see fireworks from a hotel on the lake too!)
*Do you knit when your family visits? (of course! )
*Has your cat caught a mouse in the house? (Caught this weekend, killed not quite. I’m sure the mouse died of fright with four cats tossing it around. )
*Are you buying any Thanksgiving components? (Yes. GOing to the Elegant Farmer to buy their pie in a bag tomorrow. You can’t beat it. My sweet mom was the first to say, “Oh just buy it”
*Are your hands cold? (Visiting mom this weekend, was a joy. She was so funny and sweet. When I went to hold her hands she shrieked, OH MY GOD YOUR HANDS ARE LIKE ICE! and she’s right. Time for my angora fingerless!)
