Thankful...And Just Plain "Full." got yourself a pretty thankful Sheep parked on the couch this fine Thanksgiving day! There is just so much a gal has to put in the "win" column at this point! For example:

I am thankful that my family serves the big meal at the noon hour rather than later in the day. This allows a Sheep to change into her nice, warm, elasticized flannel jammies quite early and just let herself expand at will.

I am thankful that there is stuffing. And pie. And things made with butter. And more things made with butter...

I am thankful for leftovers. And when I say, "leftovers" I am talking about a whole apple pie. (among other things) Leftovers are the best part of the holiday. There was leftover stuffing. You can probably hear me giggling madly wherever you may be at this point.

I am thankful that Baby Brother Sheep brought New Girlfriend Sheep Who We Like to dinner and that she came with a chocolate/pecan/more chocolate/sugar/more chocolate pie. I like her more now than ever. Seriously...she is now my new best friend and we will be wearing matching outfits, friendship bracelets and doing the whole girly mani/pedi thing. This was gooooood pie, people.

I am thankful that no one is the boss of me right now and that I can go into outright denial with regard to the upcoming holiday season. I can throw common sense to the wind and decide to knit whatever suits my Sheepie fancy today. I think I may have eaten a wee bit more of the chocolate pie than was good for my brain functioning, but I opted to do a little of the "Me Knitting" today.

A sock. For me. Just me. For anyone who didn't get that, it's all about me right now.
And yes...those would be the lovely, soft, warm and elastic-waisted PJs. I really am all about the "me" right now and this is a pretty comfy ensemble. It is entirely possible that I ate my own weight in stuffing today.
That said, I am also quite thankful that we live in an age where medicine has advanced to the point where we have ample access to antacids in many easily ingested forms.
Happy Thanksgiving my fellow celebrants!

Oh, Sheep - hope there are enough Rolaids in the house - wouldn't want to have to make any emergency trips.

BTW - I like the pjs.

I changed into my nice comfy elastic waist jammies as soon as I got home from my sister's. Sure does feel good! The only bad part of today for me was the fact that I have NO STUFFING LEFTOVERS!!!! So, so sad :(

Beth said...

I'm thrilled about my stuffing leftovers, too!

You deserve some knitting for yourself. Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving to you!

Be thankful you don't have ankle bitters who are hyped up due to the parade on TV, family coming over, snacking all day instead of eating. Am I suppose to be thankful for my children? Okay you got me.

Happy Thanksgiving Sheep!

And a Happy Thanksgiving to you, too! No stuffing leftovers, but we have whipped sweet potato, banana, and honey with pecan streusel topping leftovers. I hear my flannel jammies and sock calling to me. Tomorrow starts the Christmas knitting (yes, I'm a bit behind).

Happy Thanksgiving, Sheepie! I have stuffing leftovers, almost an entire pumpkin pie and 63 pounds of turkey. And I didn't have to cook any of it! Hooray. =)

Time to knit a sock.

Glad you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I made it to dinner on only a fruit smoothie, so life is good. I have tons of mashed potato-left overs (my favorite), and I won't have to put any thought into planning my meals for the next couple if days.

A "me knitting" break in the middle of "gift knitting" is highly therapeutic, and will only make you better able to complete your holiday knitting with a smile! (That is the theory I'm counting on today).
You're right, the Harlot Scarf practically knits itself!

Ah, Prilosec. It's a beautiful thing.

Glad your day was a good one. Ours was quite relaxing (and filling), as well.

Mia said...

There is something about stuffing isn't there. Sadly we had no stuffing left over.
