My Favorite Holiday

I am blessed.....so very blessed to have family, friends, health, a job......

It has been a crazy couple of weeks.   All good but nonetheless crazy.   Little to no stitching has been going on.  The last couple of weeks I have had something to do seven days a week and it has had me coming home to finally sit down with my stitching....and promptly fall asleep in the Lazy Boy!  Followed by a weekend of houseguests........dogs jumping and barking,  tails wagging things off coffee tables and bookcases, keys and phones on every surface.  Drinking glasses left on every end table.  Tons of dishes and tons of laundry.  Someone always hungry and opening the fridge.  A line for the shower.  I am not Miss Neat but I do like the normal sense of order I have in my house so for weekends like this I learned to just breathe.....as much as it is a jump from my normal, quiet day-to-day existence, I love it.    Everyone was home this weekend because no one was coming for Thanksgiving!   I turned in earlier than everyone last night figuring it was time for the mom to let the kids be kids.  I laid in bed and listened to their chatter, giggles and belly laughs and it felt so good and I had that warm and fuzzy feeling!    And guess what, we are doing it again in 4 days.   I went from just Mr. W. and I for a quiet stitching filled afternoon of a Turkey Day Feast for two to 12 house guests who will all be spending the night!     I don't know where I am putting everyone and I am sure there will be air mattresses with kids across the living room floor.  Oh boy but it sure is a wonderful life!  



Before I continue.....with fresh sheets and linens, I think a few minutes of stitching time are deserve and hopefully next post will include some stitching progress.  I have two projects I'd 
like to move from the WIP column to the Finally Finished column!

I adored this post, Robin, you put to pen exactly how I feel when they all come home...perfectly put! I'm so glad that your house will be filled with all the hearts that will make it home for Thanksgiving...you'll be so happy sitting at the table looking at those sweet grownup faces of what used to be your little ones...much better than 2 :)
Have yourself a very blessed Thanksgiving...and then sit, relax, put your feet up and stitch to your heart's content...Ma's orders!
Love ya

Robin: This time of year does come as a little mess and loads of people in our home, that is o.k. I am a little fussy about the house but can let it go for a couple of months and due the cleaning that keeps things neat and then hit it hard after the holidays.

Happy Thanksgiving

I'm glad to hear from you! It all sounds wonderful, what we all wish for. I'm going to remember the "breathe" thing.....
