Thankful for

so many things. Great friends and family, color, wool and time to knit. And for the rain we've had for the past couple of days.

It's Thanksgiving Day here in the US. Like so many of you, I will be sitting down to a turkey dinner later today. I'm looking forward to it. My diabetes dietitian said it would be okay to have a slice of pumpkin pie. I wonder if I could substitute pecan. Little does she know that I'm not all that strict with my diet. I just had the bank of glucose tests and I don't see much change from the last time. For which I'm also thankful.

I have no plans to go shopping tomorrow. I'll be working at A Stitch in Time. Several of my Friday morning students are away for the holiday so I don't know how busy I'll be. We're not opening early for Black Friday but we do have a sale that's starting. And I've heard from a couple of friends that they'll be in. So it'll be a good day.

Thanks for reading.

Enjoy ;-) A friend of ours was married to an American years ago and she made the most fantastic pecan pie - I envy you :-(

I made my pumpkin pie with splenda and my guest who is diabetic said it was the first thing he'd ever eaten made with artificial sweetner that tasted great. In fact I didn't tell him till he started sighing and worring about how much he had strayed from the healthy path.

I hope you have the sweetest holiday weekend with just exactly the right number of students and customers. I wish you were here with us this weekend.
