What a nice time we had at Thanksgiving! Lots of food and lounging about, resting up from the rigors of modern life.
We played a game on the x box called ‘Kinect’. There was bowling and volleyball and one really easy game that I tried. I forget the name of it. I just called it ‘the water game’. You are near a fish tank and the fish keep poking holes in it and causing leaks. You are supposed to fix them by ‘touching’ them. The game has a camera and can see a rudimentary image of you and it does what you do wirelessly. It’s pretty fun and you would be surprised how much you move around while playing it!
The puppy was a constant source of
chaos entertainment. But he also had his quiet moments.
Sunny has resigned herself to being a surrogate mother.
Here’s a different pose…
I got some help in the back yard from the boys and now all my pruning is finished except for the fruit trees which must wait for deep winter anyway. The green waste container is bulging.
There was knitting taking place, and baking from the daughters in law. One knit, and the other baked pumpkin cake [yum]. She also worked her way through The Ladies Home Journal I had tucked away. These were perfect pursuits for cold and rainy weather.
On Friday the girls and I went over to the yarn shop and picked out sock yarn. Everyone is getting hand knit socks for their birthday this year. [So much for the element of surprise.] But they got the colors they wanted. We found some nice alpaca blend that I’m sure will be lovely to work with.
Today I am pleasantly worn out and taking a quiet day to recover from all the excitement.
I love Thanksgiving. Because of the people it brings together.
