Thankful Thursday.. more knit stuff, an empty office & Neil Patrick Harris

We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures. ~Thornton Wilder


What I'm thankful for this week:

1. One last lunch with the Hubs.   Before our move, Ricky & I had our last lunch together.  But its even more a thankful thing because I think I'm going to be able to make it down every now & then for lunch with him even now. I know I will in December. I'll be the only one in the office a LOT in December so it won't matter if I'm a few minutes late getting back.  I'm glad. I miss seeing him during the day.

2. Enchanted Objects.  Packing up my office was such a drag & bummed me out. But I love I had my office Beauty & The Beast themed. It made me smile to see my enchanted friends smiling back at me.

3. Packed.  It wore me out - beat me down - but got it all done. I told my boss, if you plan on firing me after this move, just know I'm burning the building down as I walk out.  I'm too old to pack up 22 years of office junk.

4. Snuggly Puppy. The picture says it all.  Harvey is the SNUGGLIEST dog.  & he doesn't realize he's HUGE & HEAVY... he just wants to lay next to you or on you. I love that during winter. Better then any electric blanket.

5. Cowl!!!  This is my first tight gauge loom knit project on my Knitting Board. It took me about a month to do & I LOVED doing this one. The smaller stitches speak to me.  I left this project on my kitchen table & would do some every morning & a few rows every evening while dinner was cooking.  I'm so happy with the finished product. 

Another picture of how it comes over the head... LOVE IT!

6.  Hot chocolate & pictures.  Ricky went to the UK game on Friday & I was home by myself.  Editing pictures & sipping Starbucks hot chocolate was a good way to pass the time alone.

7.  Sharing the Knits.  I love when I am able to share my love of knitting with friends.  I always want to knit things & Ricky tells me, "not everyone wants knitted everything Rebecca" so I never want to MAKE someone wear my things. But when people say, Hey I would love to have _____, it makes me happy to whip up some quick projects & share along.

8. Neil Patrick Harris.  This book was sent to me for review & I was so giddy about it. I was going to buy it anyways because NPH is on my list of people that I am secretly in my head best friends with... so when I got this book for free?  I felt like a winner.
... PS. I'm just about 50 pages in & already loving NPH even more!  Didn't think that was possible.

9.  Pictures Done.  This was my last photo session of the year.  It felt like relief to be done & know that my nights are free now to clean my house & catch up on laundry.  Yeah -who are we kidding.... it means more time to knit.

BONUS THANKS: Imodium. This week would not have been pulled off without it.  :)
