hostess with the mostess

Welcome ever smiles,
And farewell goes out sighing.
~William Shakespeare

A bittersweet farewell to Hostess cupcakes.
Yes...believe it or not...I have a soft spot in my heart for these well-preserved delights!
I looked in all the local stores and only found this one package remaining 
after hearing the news of the company's demise.


Happy Friday-eve!!

For what food does your heart have a soft spot!?
Do tell!!

giving thanks

Happy Thanksgiving!

We are so grateful for so very much this year.
The good health of our family and friends is number one, two and three on the list to be sure!

Thank you, dear reader, for taking your time throughout the year
to stop by our humble corner of the virtual world
to share in our lives (knitterly and otherwise) and celebrations.

Mr. NK and I hope your holiday is blessed with an abundance of love and joy,
infinite time to spend with your family and friends,
and all things yummy!

second breakfast

What greater gift than the love of a cat.
~Charles Dickens

No new knitting progress, but
secret knitting is almost finished.
Leaves are mostly fallen and raked away.
Sky is gray.
Rain in the forecast.

A second breakfast sounds good. 
Aggie agrees.

Happy Weekend! xo

autumn dance

The one red leaf, the last of its clan, 
That dances as often as dance it can, 
Hanging so light, and hanging so high, 
On the topmost twig that looks up at the sky.
~Samuel Taylor Coleridge  

It's been a busy week. I'm ready for the weekend!
I have knitting, photography, an estate sale to visit,
 and a date night with Mr. NK planned
(hopefully we'll see the new 007 flick...I'll keep you posted!).

What about you...something fun on the calendar?

I hope you're all doing well! Happy Friday!
Happy weekend! xo

walking through autumn

You know what that little ball of yarn means, right?
Something new.

Well, kind of new.
New yarn (an STR mill end...really, a mill end, not a rare know who you are! LOL!).
And an old pattern.

An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.
~Henry David Thoreau
