Happy Thanksgiving; moving on...

We're vegetarians. So Thanksgiving isn't our most favoritest holiday. So we get through it.

We drove 4 hours today (I say we, but it was Dan behind the wheel) and visited both of our families. We worked out the plans for Christmas, which is always a pain in the butt to get nailed down, and we made vegetarian stuffing. All in all, it was a success.

I will probably go out tomorrow to get a pecan pie, if there are any left in the stores. I didn't get any pecan pie this year.

So we got through it, and we're moving on.

This year, it's plastic ornaments.

It must be the hormones, but I have been singing Christmas carols for weeks, and the tree has been up since the beginning of November. I guess this year is going to be a good old-fashioned Griswold family Christmas (I've already watched that movie a couple times!).

Thanks again, secret pal.

Here's the yarn, secret pal. Sorry it took so long to get a picture of it! I am feeling a little better, but still not knitterly.

wee tiny knits

Well, I haven't been knitting lately. Not even a little bit. I'm hoping to get back into the swing of it soon, but when I do, it probably won't be for me. I'm thinking things that are a little bit smaller. Like way smaller. Like baby-sized. Although I don't know why I should knit for a baby that's been giving me morning/evening/all day sickness that is so bad I can't knit because I can't focus on things that close to my face.

Oh, well. The baby's due in late spring, and that means that it won't need too many hand knits right off the bat. Even if I make it to the end of the pregnancy without having knit a stitch (heaven forbid!) at least I will have a couple of months before cool Michigan weather sets in.

Thanks, Secret Pal, for the yarn. As soon as there's a little more light outside, I'll take a few pictures. :)

I am feeling a little out of it lately. The worst thing about it is that the thought of focusing on knitting, something so close to my face, is a little nauseating. I have put those projects on hold for a moment, and I have been working on something a little easier on the eyes (and tummy).

If you've never heard of NaNoWriMo*, there's still time to join (I didn't get going till the 5th last year and I still pulled it off). The race is on to produce 50,000 words toward a novel before the clock runs out on November 30th. It's a lot of fun, and stress, and this year I roped both my husband and my sister into it with me.

Happy noveling!

*The website is a little overloaded at the beginning of November, so if it doesn't load, it's not because I made this up.
