Insomnia Is Good For Something

The up-side is that I have time plus energy to post, the down-side is I am wide-awake and am scheduled for an all-day training Tuesday. Pray for me.

I hope everyone in the US had a great Thanksgiving last week. I had several "dinners" throughout the week. I was invited to a dinner with a group of guys I work with. They cooked the entire meal.

This is Hector (don't ask) before...

And this was him after...he didn't stand a chance. The food was delish and they are a very entertaining group of young men. I was actually referred to as "an old head" I am in my early 30's, I'm not really sure what to do with that.

On the knitting front, I felted a pumpkin to serve as a centerpiece for the pre-turkey Thanksgiving table. Let's just say it didn't go very well and I threw it out the back door and into the rain... Let's hope the squirrels get it.

I also participated in 2 quilt swaps this season. The first is a sawtooth pattern in creams, beiges, golds and silvers... Can't wait to see what I get back. I'll show the second batch next time...

Must. Get. Sleep. ~ksp

I'm hearing you on the sleep. I was sleeping soundly last night but my husband has a cold and was restless as all get out. So, no one got sleep. I'm dragging today and I have training this morning too. What's up with trainings in December? I hope your day goes tolerably well.

An old head? Guess that makes me an ancient head. Sorry about the insomnia. The sleep inducing qualities of turkey just aren't storn genough I suppose. Good luck with the all day training. That may cure your insomnia.

Sounds like a great Thanksgiving! (I want Hector's backstory.) If you're an old head and Kim's an ancient head, I must be positively fossilized.

LOL at the turkey carcass
