Turkey (Day) wrap (up)

I'm spending the weekend with family, and decided to travel on Thanksgiving morning rather than fight the Wednesday night traffic. The irony of listening to an audiobook called The Man Who Couldn't Eat as I headed toward a Thanksgiving feast was not lost on me.

It didn't stop me from enjoying my dinner, and I didn't overeat. One small serving of each side dish, a slice of white meat and a small piece of turtle cheesecake for dessert. More calories than I usually eat for dinner, but who's counting on Thanksgiving?

The remainder of the weekend looks like lots of fun, too: a tiny bit of Black Friday shopping this morning, a walk this afternoon (hoping my heel is completely healed), and some quality time with my younger granddaughter this evening, while her parents enjoy a night on the town.

She and I will be shopping for supplies to make these adorable little tree ornaments, and we'll spend the evening crafting. We're going to make a lot of them so she can share them with her teachers, cousins and neighbors, too.

We'll be celebrating a birthday Saturday and I'm heading back home (and listening to the rest of the audiobook) Sunday. Let the holiday celebrations begin!

I don't usually blog when I'm traveling, but because I've made the NaBloPoMo commitment, I'm going to try. Apologies in advance for space-filling blather!

THAT sounds like a perfect holiday weekend! Those ornaments are too cute. I could totally see my daughter wanting to make those.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. And I'm thrilled to see another knitting blog I can add to my reading list. :) And you're the first blog I've seen with Obama 2012. Woo-hoo! :)
