Veteran's Day

I was supposed to have today off but then I had to work. The good news was it was only a half day AND I get to pick a floating holiday of my choice. So I'm not complaining.
I am smitten with Ravelry "a place for knitters, crocheters, designers, spinners, and dyers to keep track of their yarn, tools and pattern information, and look to others for ideas and inspiration". It is inspiring and fun. You get to admire other people's projects and yarn stash. Cool! Adrienne told me about The Knitterly Dachshund Group which of course I joined! There are many Dachshund owners on Ravelry. Last Friday some of the North Shore Purl Girls and I went to a fashion show at Loopy Yarns. Chic Knits was there (LOVE the Ribby Cardi and Felted Bucket hat). Afterward we went to dinner at Carnivale where we had drinks and dinner. My favorite server Jessica waited on us. A brand-new dessert menu debuted that day and she treated us to three yummy desserts. Tiffany drove down from Kenosha to join us for dinner. Afterward Tiff, Claire and I went to Huettenbar in Lincoln Square until the wee hours of the morning (sorry Claire!). We met a guy who tried to guess what we did for a living. Somehow "pole dancer" was suggested! Good grief.
My parents will be here this weekend for Claudia's play "Charlottes Web". Salutations! We are celebrating Thanksgiving on Sunday evening. Soon it will be Christmas. Looking forward to going home to MN to see everyone and relax. My parents are slowly moving everything to the townhouse. I think it has been hard for them to leave the house where they lived for 32 years. Meanwhile I am missing being a homeowner. Once I know what is going to happen at work, I need to seriously consider buying a place again. Wherever I land. No update on the work front. Business continues as usual.
