As someone who has royally messed up my own bad knee this summer, I appreciate your frustration (I mean, even my "good" knee isn't that great!). I hope you can feel good enough to get around and at least head north for a while. I am glad you made it to the concert, though - that probably helped. Take care.
(Now I want to try some of that infusion as well ... ) I love knitting socks because they are fun to knit all year round, there are so many amazing sock yarns, and I love to give them as gifts because people are so amazed that you MADE socks! :-)
Holy spit! 21 miles is really impressive - good for you. I'm so glad you enjoyed it.

I have toyed with learning to swim, but have always chickened out. Maybe I should make myself do it, you know?
Happy Birthday to your dad! He and your mom look like a wonderful couple. P.S. I'm so jealous of you, having both of your parents around to spend time with.
Pittsburgh is the best. Be sure to check out the Frick Mansion sometime. It's across from a beautiful historic cemetery, and also near a wonderful noodle place! Glad you had a wonderful time.

I love this poem more than I can say. Thanks for sharing it, and Happy Weekend!

I am a write-stuff-down person too. I'm gonna have to look into this ... :-)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I can remember milestone birthdays - like the fact that I just turned 60. But when someone asks me how old I am, I usually think of my birth date and try to do the math. I always figure that they must think I'm trying to think of an age they'll believe ... :-) Have a wonderful birthday and many more!
I hear you. One of my biggest P.O. grumps is people who have been standing in line with you for MORE THAN FIVE MINUTES and then when it's their turn, they are not prepared at all! Come on, folks, you had time to get your wallet out, to fill out the form, etc. GAH! Drives me nuts ...
I am so hungry right now! I think that means this is a good list ... ;-)

OK, I understand your hesitation, because I would feel the same way. BUT - those are truly lovely, I am especially IN LOVE with the wren and the flower! And I am incredibly jealous of you, as I have always wanted to learn to do watercolors, they are my favorite. (Of course, not having drawing skills at all is my first problem ...) Good for you! (And let me know if you need someone to give those away to ... ;-) )

I remember reading somewhere once that Kalamazoo was the Celery Capital of the World ... is that true?
Oh those Christmas pups! I hope all of you have a wonderful Christmas Day!

I am in the process of writing my post, but even so, I realize that a lot of this depends on not only where you live, but the kind of grocery stores in your area! Wine. I'd stop at #1 too. ;-)

I'm going to try and do this as well. But it might have to be more when things are put away, since I didn't really think about it before I got started this year ... :-) Your decorations look wonderful!

I love the group photo - a happy bunch to see on a Monday morning! I've enjoyed NaBloPoMo - more than I expected. And now I'm excited for holiday season, so I'm good.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and all of your family! You are lucky to have such fierce turkey protectors. ;-)
YAY! The best smelling days of the year are starting!!

I love cookbooks! I love some of your notes. Mine are usually related to cooking time, but I do have some cookbooks where I have written "THIS IS TERRIBLE" on the recipe. Sadly, though, I can't remember if it was something I ever tried to improve on, but don't want to find out the hard way ... Thanksgiving cooking is the best. :-)
Wow these pictures take me back to early Thanksgivings in our marriage! I think it's lovely to look back and see that you both looked happy and fun even all those years ago. :-)
Apparently, we would say a lot of the same things ... ;-)

Like you, I love the holidays and love Christmas cards (it makes me sad that fewer people are sending them). But it's true there are some stresses. Knitting and tea make me happy and help me relax a bit. Enjoy!
Oh this is nice! I didn't know this poet before, but I'll have to do some exploring. :-)
