I have always baked my own pies and, if I do say so, I made a pretty mean pie crust! But my back just won’t let me stand at the counter long enough to roll out the dough and make the pies anymore. Costco’s pies are actually very, very good and quite reasonably priced. They are huge. The pumpkin is $5.99 and the apple is $9.99. Very, very reasonable. I almost couldn’t make them for this price. This is our contribution to Thanksgiving dinner which we will be spending with Jeremy and Alicia and the boys.
I finished the latest square for the “12 blocks of Xmas” KAL. I think this one is my favorite block so far and it was really fun to knit.
We have beautiful blue skies again today although that is supposed to change and we are to have lots of rain on Thanksgiving. The mountains all around us are supposed to have snow. Since Alicia and Jeremy live in the foothills of Mt. Spokane, I’m hoping that this snow bypasses their house. Look at all the berries on the tree in our backyard. All of the trees are loaded like this.
I’ve had a busy, busy morning and so I will reward myself with knitting time this afternoon and some knitting podcasts on the TV. I went to seven different stores and I have done three loads of laundry. I also paid bills and made several phone calls for Dennis. I think I’ve earned that knitting time! I did buy another roasted Costco chicken for dinner along with a Caesar salad mix and I will bake an acorn squash. That sounds pretty good and fairly easy. I hope you’re all having a wonderful day today my friends.
