There is a dishwasher in my house that I have NEVER used until yesterday. I thought Thanksgiving with all the dishes that had to be washed would be a good day to start. Well..... I put the setting on normal wash and it took 65 minutes! That wouldn't be so bad if all the dishes came out clean, but they all didn't and I had to wash some of them anyway. I could have had everything washed, dried and put away in less then 65 minutes! I much prefer washing dishes by hand in the sink while looking out of the window. I guess I'm just an old fashioned girl!! :-)
Along with her pie yesterday, which was very good by the way, my mom brought me her old sewing machine. Lucky me. Thanks Mom!! Ken and my dad carted it up all the flights of stairs and here it now sits in my loft waiting for me to make who knows what. Ah the possibilities.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~My parents are early risers and they were long gone this morning headed back to PA by the time I got up and headed out for my walk.
Can you spot the fox? It's pretty far away. You'll have to click to enlarge the picture.I zoomed in and got this poor quality photo. I just can't seem to get close enough to the fox without him running away. I felt lucky to be able to get even this.A woman I've only seen walking around the lake before (we always say good morning) was walking down the same path as me this today. We stopped to chat and for a bit. I learned her name was Catherine.
Are you wondering if I walked yesterday? No, I didn't. I took the day off.
No early shopping for me this morning. I don't want anything bad enough to wait in line at 5:00 in the morning.
I did a quick vacuum and straightened things up around the house and started knitting another tiny hat for Bonnie's project. This time in yellow.
For lunch I made up a little Thanksgiving Day left over plate. No dessert though. I'll save a piece of pumpkin pie for my snack tonight.
Now, I'm off to do a little more knitting, maybe some reading, and then catch up on blog reading.
I hope your Friday is a happy one.
I am happy today to see the sun shining.
There are two things to aim at in life:
first, to get what you want; and after that, to enjoy it.
Only the wisest of mankind achieve the second.
