Thanksgiving already!?

I don't know where the time goes anymore, somewhere between being a mom, working full time, going to school and, well, just trying to keep my sanity I seem to look up and another month has gone by.

I did do the canning I wanted. All in all I got 10 pints of salsa, 15 pints of jams and marmalade (strawberry, strawberry rhubarb, raspberry and lemon ginger zucchini) and 13 pints of mustard pickles.

Next year I might try to do pickled beets too, if my garden cooperates and we don't eat them all (we love beets).

I've also gotten halfway through school, just finishing my midterm and now.. it's thanksgiving.

It's going to be a small one, too many people in the family are busy too and too much has happened lately to get everyone together so I've bought a ham. Mmm.

Of course where does this leave my knitting? In the sinker. I've picked up the needles only a few times in months, so of course nothing is getting done but this weekend I plan to knit! Around other things of course, but I will have time to do so! I'm almost finished my Sunday Socks, I have a few rows and to sew in the ends and they are done! Which means I should pick something else to finish.

The weather we've had lately makes me think I should do one of two things. Finish my Mr Greenjeans and/or my Fiddlehead mittens, so that's the plan I think.

I hope everyone has a happy Thanksgiving!!
