Things I’m thankful for today:

1. Great weekends when I have time to both knit,

this week's knitting

2. And bake.

This is 14 karat cake with cream cheese frosting for a friend’s birthday yesterday. I added extra pineapple because I could.

3. Rex.

Racers 1 and 2

JT took this photo for me on Saturday before the run and it makes me smile.

4. Real Simple, December 2006, page 54. My entry for “what is the best gift you’ve ever received” was selected. Sweet. There is such a selfish joy in seeing your name in print.

5. Thanksgiving week, my favorite week of the year!
