We had a lovely time in a gorgeous place. I do not remember any Thanksgiving in my life that wasn't snowy, and at least below 30 degrees f. Yesterday, it was 50 degrees, and the sun was out! I was a good girl, and didn't fight with the in-laws. I just might have to open a flicker account to share all of the amazing pictures we took. (Any advice for a free account would be welcome) We were at Point Betsie Light House. It's in Frankfort, MI. I was so glad it was nice enough to go walking on the beach, and around the cabin we were in. Talk about being blessed and thankful.
Besides walking on the beach, and eating, and knitting, I also read the piece about Carrie and her hubby in the paper!! It was so cool! And sweet! See the pic of the beach down below? The little specks on it are LD, MM (our 13 yr. old), BIL, and the nephew who is 6. It was seriously the best Thanksgiving I've ever had.
Until I got back from an after dinner walk on the beach with MIL, her friend, his mother, LD, and the nephew who's 6.
We walked in to the cabin, and my Hubby said that SP (our 16 yr. old) called. He was at his great-aunt's house with his other grandma. He had fallen and hurt his ankle. So, I called and he gave the phone to one of the adults, and to make a long story a little bit shorter, we went and got him and took him to the emergency room. He has a broken ankle! (The whole trip call to cast, only took a couple of hours) He's got an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon Monday morning. He will be driven to and from school everyday, and get a break from work. If he needed a rest, I told him, all he had to do was say so. He didn't need to break a bone! He was fooling around with cousins, seeing who could run and jump the farthest, and yep, he won!
Hopefully he won't need surgery. I almost fainted when they were telling us where and how it was broken. Hubby took my arm and walked me over to a chair. Haha. I'm ok, until it's my kid that's hurt. He has only taken two ibuprofen tablets. He says it's not hurting much. At least he's figuring out how to use the crutches quickly. Poor kid, he was joking with the p.a. about when he can skateboard again, and the guy thought he was being serious. Hubby said (after the p.a. left) stop trying to joke with these people, they don't have a sense of humor. Most people don't get SP's humor, anyway, it's very dry and different. I only get it because I've lived with him his whole life, and because Hubby has the same weird sense of humor, and I have to get it, or live everyday in confusion! Anyone who doesn't get it, has no sense of humor, according to Hubby.
I hope everyone else who does the US thanksgiving day thingy had a great one with no injuries!
Now, for a little bit of good news: As I was sitting here, typing, and chatting with SP, the doorbell rang. It was Hubby with a package for me! He went to the post office on his way back out to the cabin to get MM, and LD. They spent the night with their Granny and cousins, and SIL and BIL.
I got my knitpicks needle set already!
Isn't that fast? I love knitpicks! I'm going to go play with them!
Hope you all have a safe weekend. I'm going to be knitting on my new needles, and waiting on the invalid! Knit On!
