What a fun vacation! Every year I think my feet are going to fall off but the Builder and I have such a good time at Disney World. This year we were pretty much on our own as our Baby Girl took her friend so they did their own thing each day. It was a much more relaxing trip for us because we didn't have to rush into the park at opening (the kids always love doing that) and we could have a relaxing morning (knit a little) and then go to the park around noon and stay till they closed. We only went into Epcot and MGM this year. We were busy every single day though and put on about 8 miles a day (I took my podometer). Thanksgiving was nice and shopping afterwards at Downtown Disney was great fun! It's good to be home but going to take the rest of this week to recover from my "Disney Hangover."

Here's my Rogue. I just love this sweater and can't wait till I can wear it! I'm not too good about making sweaters, 1st because they take so long and because I get so bored so fast. But, this one is different. Working in the round, doing both back and front at the same time is so quick! And, doing the cables up both sides keeps it interesting. I've just divided for the front and back, though I'm not sure why I ended up with a weird stitch on either side of the bind off. Anywho, it's coming along. Might be able to wear it by Christmas if the sleeves don't put me to sleep.This is my Christmas Cactus, but I'm wondering if it's a Thanksgiving Cactus as it's full of buds. This is a first for me! My Mom keeps starting them for me and then slowly they die. With this one I followed her instructions to the letter and it is full of the prettiest pink buds. So, if you are a killer of Christmas/Thanksgiving/Easter Cactus like me, this is what you do. After it's thru blooming put it in a dark corner and when it gets warm enough outside (not freezing at night) put it out under a bush, or tree, forget about it, and it'll be ready to come in in the fall. Well, that's just what I did and it worked! I asked her for a peice of her white one so she's started it for me. Maybe I'll have good luck with that one too. White against that dark green is just so stunning. I can't wait till this one is in full bloom! Thanks Mom! I'll try not to kill the white one!
Off to Disney for our annual Thanksgiving vacation with Mickey. The hubby loves the place, the Baby Girl is taking a friend this year and sleeping in a tent instead of the camper and I just look forward to all the good food (we eat in Germany at Epcot) and have my spa manicure and pedicure at the Grand Floridian! Clothes are almost packed and we're just counting down the days! This is the first year in a long time my Oldest Baby Girl and her 3 little ones won't be going and my Baby Boy won't be going, but they're all going to their Grandma and Grandpa's so I'm sure they'll be well fed and well taken care of. We'll miss them, but they're all so busy I'm sure they won't even notice we're gone.

How time does fly! He was born feet first and fast! 45 minutes from when I got to the hospital. The cord was around his neck 4 times, but he came out kickin' and a screamin'. I can remember it like it was yesterday! Now he's got his own place and lives 5 hours from his Mommy and Daddy! Wow, time flies! My Baby Boy is all grown up. Did I mention time flies?
I love you Nick!

So, since this is such a dull blog, I'll include these pictures taken at my Moms in July after she and my father took me to my favorite yarn shop in the mountains. I was supposed to put them in here when I got back but................
Have a great weekend and I sure hope you all get more knitting done than I have!
