Dinners, Walks and Wind
We had dear friends over for dinner and company on Friday night, the first dinner of many without a single child between us! As much as I was sadden by the lack of children, I embraced the quick and easy clean up and the abundance of desserts on the tray. We had a good time, with every intention to knit while together but we ended up with knitting in our bags at the ready untouched.
Saturday afternoon I resumed walking with my husband and Frodo, gingerly-I'm happy to report that the ankle is doing much much better and as long as I watch where I'm going I should be fine. Those dastardly shoes have been safely tucked to the side. I feel incredibly lucky to be recovering so quickly.
The time change offered me a chance to knit a tiny bit more on the Thanksgiving sweater. "I think I can, I think I can", is the mantra in my head. Positive thinking and all that stuff. Besides the conversations with my two kids, I had a lovely chat with my favorite Aunt and Uncle.
Our after dinner walks have switched to before dinner walks, the wind was brisk and the both of us weren't dressed warmly enough (yes, I had on some woolens but I needed a winter coat!). Once inside, we made pizzas with mushrooms and black olives-so so delicious! Football was on the TV, not watched by me-I knit and read. Sketching out the Christmas list made me realize I need to knit one more item, when I thought I was done.
