I made this cross stitch a few years ago. I was completely attracted to the vibrant pumpkins, and I liked the pastoral look of the pilgrim maiden. It’s all a little too idealized, but that’s okay.
Our third annual Turkey Day 5K in Minneapolis. I didn’t catch the number of people there; we’re guessing 20,000-30,000. The energy was good; the weather was better – an outrageously balmy 52 degrees in Minneapolis in November — highly unusual; and I reached a personal goal to not walk in a 5k. I trained with active.com’s mobile app Couch-to-5k program, and I loved it. Will continue on that quest as my body is rewarding me too much to ignore the benefits of running.
I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful!
