Happy Thanksgiving!!

Hope all those in the US has a wonderful Thanksgiving day...for others just think of something you are thankful for, afterall...that's what it's all about. It doesn't have to be one day out of the year, Thanksgiving can be everyday!

So you ask why have I been to busy to post? Well, besides being a new puppy mom and working on my Christmas knitting...I've been in training!

Today I'm running my second 5K race, which is also a fundraiser for a major local charity organization...the Roanoke Rescue Mission. This annual event is called The Drumstick Dash and has a great moto:

"Move Your Feet So Others Can Eat"

I'm not expecting any great gains in my previous time, but I do expect to eat as much turkey dinner as I want later today! Many members of my family are doing the "walk" part, my brother chickened out on the "running" part with me! Yeah, I can say that...because he doesn't read my blog!
I was so worried the weather was going to be cold & rainy, that's been a major factor in my training for this event...but today's going to be a beautiful day.

I am concerned I'll be too pooped to play in our annual "Granny Bowl" football game this afternoon...we'll have to wait and see!
Then, we're leaving for Eastern Va to visit Hubby's family!

Happy Thanksgiving...

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!
