In the 7 years that I have had this blog I have not really written about Thanksgiving except maybe to complain share the bad. I don't know why I do that. It is the good memories/happy stuff that I want to remember, not the bad.

Starting now that is going to change.


This year, the husband and I spent Thanksgiving at my parents' house. It was a smaller crowd than usual, only 30 people and all of them family. Everyone showed up right on time, but something happened with the oven so the turkey was not completely cooked. So, we had to wait. 30 hungry people, waiting at least an extra hour for turkey. Luckily, the majority of the turkey was cooked, so enough edible pieces were able to be cut off and 30 hungry people were hungry no more.  

I am thankful for my family and the time that we can get together and visit. That extra hour gave us more time to catch up.


The day after Thanksgiving (Black Friday to most of you) the husband and I had our own Thanksgiving. Every year, usually a week or two after Thanksgiving, the husband will cook a turkey just for us. He really really really LOVES to cook and this way we are able to have our own leftovers. This year, he invited a co-worker, whose wife is deployed overseas, to join us for dinner. It was nice to share our own Thanksgiving dinner with someone other than just the two of us. All the food was very yummy and looked pretty too.

That husband of mine sure does know how to cook and for that I am thankful.

I made it!


I survived my final exam.
What a wonderful feeling it is not to have to worry about this class any longer.
My life can now get back to normal.
Well, as normal as my life can be.

Too bad this wasn't my final final exam. Lucky me, I get to do it all over again in 15-weeks.

A less whiney post

2 lessons left to complete.
1 quiz left to take.
1 day until Thanksgiving with the family.
2 days until the husband cooks our own Thanksgiving dinner along with added guest.
5 days until my final exam.

I have a feeling that I just might make it.

panic is starting to set in

January 29, 2010: Reflections of studySo much study-ing left to do.

I only have 16 days left until I take my final exam.

I still have 8 lessons and 2 tests that I need to complete. 8 lessons may not sound like much but those lessons involve many many hours of online reading and many handwritten exercises that I will need to complete. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that there are no hidden surprises, like the extra lessons that were not on the syllabus, that I encountered in my last course. Plus, somewhere in the next 16 days, I need to fit in Thanksgiving and some regular old house cleaning. Grocery food shopping would be an awesome accomplishment at this time as well.

As if the stress of completing my lessons before the deadline were not enough, while working through the course there have been many references to reviewing information/notes from the other specialty classes in the program. Only one problem, one of the courses that the instructions refer to is the next class, the one that is supposed be taken after my current class. How can I review notes and follow steps from a class that I have not yet taken?

Yarn, Cats & Clouds

I am so behind on uploading photos. I really do need to upload something new. Something new and different. Something other than yarn, cats or clouds.

Do you have new pictures to share?

September 16, 2010Behind every cloud is another cloudUFO cloud coverWhen the sun has set, no candle can replace itClouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.
Clouds on clouds, in volumes driven, Curtain round the vault of heaven.When clouds appear like rocks and towers, the earth's refreshed by frequent showers.“You must not blame me if I do talk to the clouds.”Those playful fancies of the mighty skySeptember 15, 2010October skies
