Our Thanksgiving Day

Due to my daughter's work schedule, we had planned our family Thanksgiving for tomorrow (Saturday). But we had reservations for dinner for 2 at our favorite restaurant, and plans to visit my sister's home for dessert. But our dogs decided to get into a major brawl over a tennis ball, and the Retriever won. Result - The Vet ER for our Lhasa Apsa. Poor Spike!

Knitters Review Retreat 2009

Although my blog has been superceded by Facebook, Ravelry, Twitter, and Life, it wouldn't be a knitter's blog without mention of the Knitter's Review Retreat.

School obligations kept me from going to the retreat last year, the first one I had missed since I started attending in 2004. Being able to attend this year was especially meaningful due to all of the losses and changes 2009 has brought.

How to describe the event? Old and new friends and roommates, beautiful lace, beautiful yarn, a room stuffed with talent, yummy food (and plenty of it), mountains, and GPS! A special thanks to my roommate, Helen, who loves Mounds bars too!
