Getting in the Spirit

Well, I know we are just a little under a week until Thanksgiving, but I can hardly wait!
Friday morning here at Stitches and Stories were greeted with the first snow flurries of the year. This is a momentous occasion for us, it is not very often we get flurries or snow. It has been a few years since we had enough to close schools and business. So when I opened the door in the morning and saw flurries coming down fast and furious I was too excited. I knew it wouldn't last but it set a festive mood for the day.
I was getting off work at noon to finish the Christmas shopping and the snow flurries just made it all the more festive.

It is hard to see in this picture but there are flurries out there, trust me.

I love snow, probably because it is such a treat here when we get it. But I think of people who move to warmer climates when they retire I think I would like to move somewhere, with more snow!

I have finished the Christmas shopping and today I addressed all the Christmas cards; they won't go out until after Thanksgiving. While I love Christmas, it does follow Thanksgiving, no matter how hard the retailer try to move it up to after Halloween.

I hope everyone is getting in the festive mood!

Happy Knitting!
