This is my 6th go around in this wonderful world of wizards. During each of those terms I have made so many new friends. I was thinking today what my life would be like if I had never discovered HSKS and never got to know so many great people. I am a firm believer that people come into our lives and exit our lives for reasons. I believe that I learn something from each and every person with whom I come in contact. Today I was thinking about how much I miss many of the people who have moved on to other things. They may no longer be part of my life, but I still miss them.

I am thankful for all these people and all I have learned from them. I hope that I can stay in touch with as many of these awesome people as possible and that our friendships can continue to grow.

Being Thanksful

It's very quiet around the Quidditch pitch this morning. The sun is barely above the horizon on its journey of the day. The grass is moist with dew. There is the smell of damp earth and early morning. The birds are singing a soft chorus to welcome the day.

These are just a few of the things I'm most thankful for.

Inside there is the sound of soft breaking from my sleeping family. Today will be a busy day of family activities, with family coming from near and far. There will be the bustle of activity in the kitchen as our early Thanksgiving dinner cooks. There will be the laughter of family and friends. There will be sporting matches to watch and games to play.

These are a few more of the things I am most thankful for.

And there are all my Hogwarts and Quidditch friends to greet at the start of a new week...friends, both new and old, whom I treasure and admire and learn much from.

I am thankful you each and every one of you. May you all be blessed with love and laughter.

I have found a wonderful new fiber that I love working with. Why have I not tried this fiber before?! I can't say more because I'm using this yummy fiber for my spoilee's kit and I don't want her getting too much information. I'm about half done with the handmade item for her kit. Hopefully I'll be able to get it finished this coming weekend...before I go to the Muggle football game. I'll be wearing my purple and gold proudly!

What a crazy few weeks I've had! I didn't realize just how looney the Full Moon can make people, but I experienced it all this week! I was contacted by people I haven't heard from in ages. I had people showing up that I didn't expect. It never seemed to quit. I would fall into bed at night exhausted.

I'm really in the mood to go down to Diagon Alley and checking out all the newest yarn, but I quite honestly don't need ANY more yarn! Aren't 3 bins enough?! I do have some on order for my spoilee's special handmade item. I can't wait to get it!! I did lots and lots of shopping until I found what was JUST PERFECT. With the cooler weather, I enjoy sitting cuddled up in the evening knitting away.
