Today is Thanksgiving in Canada--I hope all my Canadian friends are sharing good times with family and friends!
Personally, I am thankful to have water restored to our home. While Soccer Son didn't exactly show up at the break of dawn, he DID arrive a little later in the morning, fixed the pipe, and restored water by around 10:30 a.m. Yay! Yes, as someone said, the bathroom situation was the worst part; at least the water was back on and I was able to take a bath and brush my teeth before it got to be very late in the day. AND--most importantly maybe!--we had enough bottled water for me to make a pot of coffee, so no one had to die.
And speaking of Thanksgiving . . . . Remember that glimpse I gave you last week of my current project? Done!
Originally, I started this tabletopper-sized project thinking it was going to be a kind of homespun Christmas project, but as it evolved, it reminded me more of Thanksgiving than Christmas, so I ended up adding a Thanksgiving "menu" to the border. I think it will look pretty cute on my kitchen table once Halloween is over and done.
I was also thinking I might include the pattern directions in my Christmas class packet as a kind of "extra" project, and I was wondering if you would like me to post them on my blog too?
You know what else I'm thankful for? Tomorrow--besides the fact that it's Thanksgiving in Canada--is Columbus Day here in the U.S. And guess what? My office observes it as a holiday, so I have one more day off! WOOO-HOOOOO!
I hope you find much to be thankful for today!
