Turkey has been consumed, along with the requisite and oh-so-yummy sides.

Next up: apple pie and pumpkin cheesecake, with hot tea and a movie perhaps. My girls are keeping me laughing, my husband is in deep conversation with my sister about politics (saves me from doing it, thank heavens) and there will be knitting. To date, there has been a Baby Surprise Jacket. And a cowl. And almost a sock that went on hold for Christmas knitting, but I will see it soon. Oh, and there’s a feather and fan in Noro and something else. I like it.

I am an extraordinarily lucky woman, and I know it. And I hope you’re feeling lucky too.
