SITMT: Things that I'm thankful for

(updated to include photos 11/24) Being that today is Thanksgiving the Sock It To Me Twice swap is asking for us to post 10 things we are thankful for. Since I'm posting from my parent's computer at the moment, I don't have access to my photos saved on my computer. I'll be editing when I get back home on Saturday to include pictures. So check back again later for a more visually appealing post.

1. Having had Buddy in my life. (No brainer, huh? If you are new to this post, read down a few entries and you'll see what I mean.)

2. Growing up in such a warm and loving family. They'll push you to do what you never thought you could accomplish and they're always there to support you and cheer you on. 3. The Little Man. He's brought so much joy to the family and it's so wonderful to have little ones around again now that my generation is all grown up and stuff. 4. My sensay Jaz. La-ove her! She's been such a guidance for me in the knitting world and she's always challenging me to knit things I think are too hard for me. (photo stolen from her blog) 5. Tea - Nature's gift of relaxation. 6. Fall - my favorite season. I love everything about fall. The leaves turning, pumpkins everywhere, visiting the farm, the cooler air just perfect for long sleeves and a comfy pair of jeans, baked goods, the colors, the smells, everything! 7. My TomTom Honey got me for Christmas last year. It keeps me from getting lost when traveling through the city and is great for spacing out on the directions on those long road trips. 8. SudaCare Vapor-Plug. My sinuses couldn't make it through the night without it! 9. All the great friends I'm making through blogging and knitting. You all have such great ideas and are supportive in knitting and other life happenings. I never thought I would meet so many people through starting a blog. Some of you I hope to meet in person some day.

(Sorry, no photo here because I have yet to meet any of you.)

10. Holidays with all of my family. It's a rare occasion when we all get to get together but it brings back such happy memories of growing up in a 'village of a family'.

Hello Sock it To Me Twice Secret Pal! What a beautiful list. So sorry about your little Buddie. I had a cat for 18 years and she died around this time of the year 8 years ago. I still miss her.

I have been so busy I haven't had time to post mine!

I would like to have your email if I could. I have some questions to ask so I can start to spoil you. I hope you have a wonderful day and the rest of the week.

Thanks for the shout out. I hope you can make it for a bit tomorrow. I tired to email you yesterday but the schools voracious firewall prevented the e-mail from going through.
