And I am soooooo not going shopping. I take that back - I have to buy a bag of horse food, but that's it. I refuse to go to the mall the day after Thanksgiving; it completely ruins my holiday spirit.
We are having a quiet week here. My folks have come to SLC from back east and have done a downtown tour, and we've watched some football, and generally visited a bit, since it's been over a year since I've seen them. I'm mostly sitting around being a huge slug. Apparently that's what I needed for my "vacation".
So, today, even though I've not got knitting pictures or things like that to post, I want to mention how thankful I am for everyone I have met through my blog and my online store and the greater knitting/fiber community that lives out in cyberspace. One of my favorite online reads/friends is Liz; she and I have a lot of things in common, and I know I can always hit her blog when I need a little eye candy break, or wander through her links when I need something thought-provoking or visually stimulating.
And in the spirit of giving thanks, I'm one of the links in the "Pay It Forward" concept that she's posted about eloquently on her blog. The basic premise is this:
I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I don’t know what that gift will be yet and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week, but you will receive it within 365 days, that is my promise! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.
So, if you'd like to Pay It Forward, just be one of the first 3 commenters on today's post.
It's my little way of saying Thanks to all of you who read, comment and generally support my wacky endeavors through your kind comments and emails on this blog. Virtual hugs to all!
All for now......
