Hey friends. The work week is just about over. Can I get a hoo? And a ray? Let’s talk about some random stuff, mmmmkay?
I blew NaBloPoMo by not posting last Sunday. I’m pretty sure no one noticed. I mean, I posted a poem on Saturday and . . . crickets. I thought about posting on Sunday and I even searched for a funny library meme and . . . I just didn’t post. I think I’m good with my Monday-Friday routine and I think you all are, too. So no more weekend blog posts from me going forward.
Thanksgiving is one week from today and it’s sure going to look different for me and, I expect, all of you as well. We’ve been guests for years, I can’t remember the last time I actually cooked a turkey on the actual holiday. And in reality, I probably shouldn’t be cooking a turkey this year since it will be just Dale and I along with Hannah and Mikey. They said on the news the other day that small turkeys are difficult to find right now and that makes a lot of sense. We like turkey, though, so if I can’t find a small one I’m good with a big ole bird. I’m going to keep the sides simple and I haven’t decided yet what to do about the pies. I generally make 5 but that’s not happening, naturally. Dale said I only need to make one . . . mince. That’s all well and good since it’s his favorite but it’s not a hit with anyone else! I can’t even imagine Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie and Dale doesn’t like that. I did find these mini pies from King Arthur Baking and I may go in that direction with pumpkin for me, mince for Dale, and pecan for Hannah. Hopefully Mikey has a favorite among those 3, too!
I have 3 recently finished knitted things that I haven’t shown you yet! I really need to coordinate with my top knitwear model, Hannah, and get some photographs taken of 2 of these, Nightshift and Rio Calina. The 3rd project is a gift and it’s waiting on the arrival of a new bundle of joy for some friends so it may still be a little while before you see that one.
And that’s all I’ve got for you this Thursday. Just remember . . . it’s almost the weekend!
