Gobble Gobble! Tat's it! Taking a break from the 'shoulds' and 'ufo's', I tatted Mark Meyer's Turkey. (Valdini thread) I hope to tat a simple mini cross bookmark (enough for the guld) for the January meeting; as I'm the hostess for that brunch meeting. The only other thing I am tatting is the table runner and the 25-challenge. In January I'm tatting ear rings and looking at my 'get around tuit' list!
December looms and we aren't through Thanksgiving. DH bought a turkey for that day. I was thinking ummmm ~ reservations? But he actually likes to cook for two people. Don't misunderstand, I think that is really nice but. . .
Our house guest will be gone from Turkey Day and also at Christmas; so they've become just another day on the ridge for us! I'm looking for an 'up side' to this and I thought driving to Las Cruces or Tucson would be a nice change. I totally forgot (after 53 years) that DH does not drive any place on Holidays. It is a life rule!
I'm feeling nostalgic and old. I don't usually feel old; but there you go. . . I hope I don't become one of those dreadful elderly people who get all down in the mouth during holidays. I see that as a choice; therefore, I shan't choose that path! Actually I've been people-saturated of late; consequently, perhaps solitude during the holidays will be rejuvinating. Eating in doesn't mean staying at home and I do love turkey, stuffing, and Football! And an attitude of gratitude!
Perhaps I'm being too introspective; I tend towards being analytical, reflective about life. It is as though I need a distraction, some fun, something wacky and thoughtless. Did you know the root word for amusement is to "not think." I think I need to experience some amusement outside of the house and off the ridge. Perhaps this turkey should trot!
