1219860-bigthumbnailSo it’s cold out.  Winter weather in the forecast.  I cannot say I am sad about it.  In fact I am very excited.  I hope that it turns out to be snow and not ice.  I look forward to watching the wet weather come in tomorrow afternoon.

Today my inlaws arrived for the Thanksgiving holiday.  Smack in the middle of Nativity fast.  We are flexible with fasting.  Planing of being strict about fasting on Fridays until they leave.  Looking forward to the all the fun times going to be had the next few weeks.

So for sometime I have been trying to make knotted chotkis.  I have had no luck with making these knots.  No such luck yet.  If I have any downtime the next few days I will spend some time trying to make a 33 knot chotki.  So wish me luck!

So everyone have a great Thanksgiving!

Thank you, Father, for having created us and given us to each other in the human family. Thank you for being with us in all our joys and sorrows, for your comfort in our sadness, your companionship in our loneliness. Thank you for yesterday, today, tomorrow and for the whole of our lives. Thank you for friends, for health and for grace. May we live this and every day conscious of all that has been given to us.

Bring back to the right way of salvation all those who are living steeped in sin, Comfort the afflicted, provide the needy. Strengthen the fearful, defend the oppressed, give health to the infirm. Grant eternal rest to those departed, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. We ask all these things with the intercessions of our mother Mary and through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.

Happy Thanksgiving to All!
