A Day Of Celebration

Thanks everyone for your kind thoughts.  The online knitting community just simply rocks.  Today I am just thankful I have so many friends in so many avenues, and I'm thankful that I have special people in my life who mean so much to me that I genuinely mourn them when they're gone.  I don't think everyone has that.

So today I am doing things that make me happy.  There is now a second red mitten
to make a full "finished project."

I got the garlic out of my closet (which is a long, rather weird story).

I have a new music ornament for our tree:
and my Christmas bin is slightly fuller than yesterday:
Okay, REALLY slightly as one mitten and one ornament do not take up much space.  But in VERY happy space-related news:
I have used up so much yarn from my fingering-weight bin that three bags of yarn that were not originally IN the bin are out of the closet and into the bin.  This is even MORE exciting because my temporary wire shelving is starting to sway a bit ominously, so this winter Andy will be painting the sewing room and building some permanent shelving for me, and yarn in slightly fewer containers will make it much easier to move things around to give him access.  Visible proof that I am making a dent in my stash AND removal of the threat of having cascades of fabric and yarn fall on my head--definitely  something to celebrate!
