Major Happy Dance! STATISTICS IS FINISHED!! Hmmm – or should that be Statistics are finished. Hey, I’m a college senior – I should know that. Anyhow, can we have a Woo! and a Hoo! I went in to work today and things were really slow and we were tripping all over each other, so I decided to take the day off. And, as much as I dreaded it, I decided I should just suck it up and take the final exam. So, after two hours of studying, I did it. It’s over. I felt a little panicky mid-test – my mind just kind of went blank. But when I got home and reviewed the material, I felt really good about the test. It will probably be a week or so before I get the final results, but it’s looking good!
On top of that, I’ve finished all of the knitting for Izzy’s Christmas outfit. Now, it’s just the neckbands and sewing up. Since I’m so far ahead on that project, I decided to wing my way down to our LYS and get some yarn for my secret pal at work. She’s expressed a longing for fingerless mitts, so I will make a pair for her along with some coordinating socks. Here’s Still Life With Yarn:
You might sense that I am a little relaxed about tomorrow (besides having Statistics off my back) and you would be correct. I don’t have to cook at all! About 5 or 6 years ago a local restaurant owner decided to start a Community Thanksgiving Feast for those who either couldn’t afford it or didn’t have family in town to share with. We’re a Navy community and a lot of people are away from their extended family. Well, it has really snowballed and now is a real tradition. All kinds of people come – even those who can well afford it. Those who are able throw some money or checks in a container at the front door, but no one really cares. It’s open to all. Bill, my sister and I will be runners – delivering meals to those who can’t get out. It will be a great time! Ironically, last year the man who started the feast died of a heart attack on Thanksgiving day – in the kitchen, cooking turkeys. What a wonderful legacy he has left. Hope you all have wonderful friends and family to share the day with!
