A Month Goes By

I can't believe it's been a month! I've been feeling really good, that's my writing problem, lol.
I've had a wonderful month, and every spare minute has been dedicated to knitting like a mad woman! A shrug, a shawl, a scarf, 6 pairs of armwarmers, socks, and other miscellaneous stuff. That's actually just the first part of my holiday list!! I have so much more to do.

I had a great Thanksgiving with my neighbors and friends. Daniel cooked, and I baked up a storm. We went to Merce's house. Helen was there and other beautiful women. We spent most of the day catching up and talking about healing. Each one of us is in a healing process of one kind or another and it was nice to compare processes and progresses and love.

I spent yesterday with my bestfriend. A girls day to top all others! Shopping, gift exchanges, lunch, coffee, errands, a movie, and finally knit night with our awesome Taos group of crazy knitting addicts!! Twilight and I went to see the movie of her namesake "Twilight". I don't think I can give an accurate crititism, but I can't remember ever having so much fun at a movie!!
I laughed till most of my parts ached!! We even indulged in a little food fight with our gigantic bag of popcorn.

I think I've had such a good and productive month because I've been following all of my new rules. Hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, fairly good diet, medications, naps, and sheer determination.

I'm getting ready for a trip "home" to Wisconsin to spend the holidays with my family, and despite moments of being really nervous, I'm really excited. So my plan is to keep following my rules and hope I feel good health through all the insanity I'm sure will ensue.
