Happy Thanksgiving

For those in the US, today is Thanksgiving day.  Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

Traditionally a day for eating turkey and watching football.  We are waiting until my sister arrives on Saturday for the main event, and so today was mostly a beautiful relaxing day around the house.  Sydney and I went out this morning to run a 5K.  I took a selfie before the start of the race.  At the time I didn't realize that I was catching a yawning pilgrim in the background.  As it turns out, when I posted it on facebook, I learned that he is the brother-in-law of one of my teacher friends.  We live in such a small world sometimes!
Kurt was off to pick up Anna from New College this morning and then we were all back together and settled in to watch the Thanksgiving day parade.  We even saw a bit of the dog show after, but it was making our poor puppy Lizzie go crazy. 
I then managed to almost entirely finish the transformation of the sewing studio into the guest bedroom.  I say almost because I could not resist loading a quilt onto the frame before I have to take it down to make room for the guests.  I still have an entire day to play.  It looks like the girls have mostly taken over side dish and dessert preparations and Kurt is going to smoke the turkey on the big green egg, so I might just have a bit more free time tomorrow. 
I got a good start on quilting before the first bobbin ran out.  I went ahead and used the thread that was on the machine because it seemed more efficient than redoing it all.  There is white in the top and light blue on the back which should work just fine and dandy I think.  Sydney is having two friends sleeping over tonight so that they can get up early and do black Friday shopping.  I'm planning a run with a friend and Kurt is off to volleyball.  It is nice to have a long weekend to enjoy it all.

Sounds like a great change-up to the traditional Thanksgiving. Enjoy!
