monday's musing

"Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending." - Maria Robinson

This is for my elder son and for everyone else who thinks that - just because they screwed something up - there's no way to make it better.

Because everyone has the power to change their life for the better.

Happy Monday! I disappeared last week to take care of my little Bear. I was horribly worried about him after last weekend's swim meet. A younger team mate was diagnosed with viral pneumonia, and I said to Mr. Romi "I'm so glad we're past that scary age when every illness seems so very serious." That evening, Bear's cough got worse and worse (he had had a mild cold the week before) and all I could think was that I had tempted fate by saying what I had. Coughing and fever took on greater serious proportions, and Mr. Romi and I took turns staying up with our little one and making sure the fever didn't get out of hand those first two nights. After Bear had been on his antibiotics a couple of days, he started getting better and better. What a relief. But he won't be going to the next JOs (Junior Olympics) as we had planned. He's still not allowed back in the pool. At least it wasn't viral pneumonia; bronchitis was the diagnosis. We breathed a collective sigh of relief when he began acting himself again.

This week I'm looking forward to cooking a big Thanksgiving dinner in our new house - and so is Bear, my little foodie. The menu: turkey with cornbread and chestnut stuffing, cranberry sauce (my current favorite thing to make because I love watching their skins pop off!), yams, wild rice dressing with mushrooms, mesclun/pear/pecan salad with blue cheese crumbles and citrus vinaigrette, and some apple goo for dessert. We have so much to be thankful for this year, and I will start early; thank you all so much for reading my blog, commenting, writing to me, knitting my patterns, and wearing my pins. You are so very much appreciated.

Have a fantastic week!

Because of your patterns, I can create and I am so thankful to you for that. I've always been a firm believer that when one door closes, another opens and I've tried to encourage my kids (and grandchildren) to eagerly seek out the open door.

Thank you for enriching our knitting lives with your amazing designs, wonderful classes, and gorgeous pins.

Glad your son is on the mend.

I make a wild rice/mushroom casserole every Thanksgiving. Your Thanksgiving menu sounds delicious!
