A little daffy

The intention was to post a nice Thanksgiving holiday message but clearly that didn't happen. I was busier than a "one armed bandit" as hubby so eloquently states.
Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. I cooked a massive dinner and enjoyed family time. Unfortunately everyone in the family seems to be "dropping like flies" with either a respiratory or stomach virus and the respiratory found it necessary to reside here. I'm losing my voice as in, it's almost non-existent at this point. I've done every home remedy possible and it's inevitable. Been there, done that. I've lost my voice every holiday season for 20 yrs. SMH 
Moving along...we attended an event over the weekend. requiring casual clothing, not jeans and flannel shirt (hubby). I had no idea hubby paid attention to what others wear but apparently he does (if not for anything to prove a point). Sure enough, he spotted a man in jeans and a plaid flannel shirt. But that's not all he noticed. Husband in charge of a lot of locked doors at both jobs so he carries a massive amount of keys on a key ring which hangs ever so jangly off his belt loop. All of a sudden my knight in shining armor says, "WOW! he has more keys than I do AND he has a lock!"
I almost dropped to the floor in laughter.
I'm guessing a key lock is now on his Christmas wish list....lol

It's been a long, long time

It's been a while. It's been a long while but here I am again.
As I mentioned in a previous post, we're moving on so we trekked with friends to another re-enactment. We're smitten and will be joining the ranks of re-enacting. So I'm gathering patterns and fabric to make our authentic clothing. 
Weathermen said the temps would be in the 60's. Apparently they missed part of their forecasting because on Saturday it dropped to 45 with cold winds and by that night it was freezing. Unfortunately we were not prepared and took a trip to a dept store to purchase coats, gloves, hats, scarves etc. Good thing because the we attended the civil war church service and could see our breath.  It was cold!

 I even discovered some civil war garment knitting to make for myself and my friend.
 We were surprised to see quite a few young people involved in re-enacting and gotta say, it made me proud.
We had a wonderful time and we're looking forward to the next one.

Road Trip

We took a road trip. Of course our road trips are never just trips, they are always (and I do mean always) 'adventures.' I use that term loosely. Hubby and I decided to treat ourselves to a donut as we hit the road at 4 am. One half mile from the house we saw deer on the right in a neighbor's yard. Ok. We live in a heavily populated deer area (great for filling the freezer). We slowed down and outta nowhere? KA-BAM! A doe! She cracked the headlight shield. Let me just say THAT woke us up for certain.
We went straight to the market to calm our nerves with a donut. No donuts! At this point I looked at hubby and said, "is this a sign? Should we cancel the trip?" We said a quick prayer and took off.

The trunk and back seat were loaded. The husband accused me of packing enough yarn projects for a month. Hey! A 12 hour trip requires a lot of knitting options. What if we're stuck in traffic? Been there, done that with no knitting and I wasn't about to chance it.
More trip pics to come...

Bear with me...

A lot going on in this neck of the woods or should I say, my mind. On overload here and I'm doing my best to put on a good front. After the front performance, I collapse into a deep sleep just like a bear in hibernation.
My posting will be limited and I will be scarce on social media. I need some "me" time to re-group me, myself and I.
