Holiday Weekend

I can smell the stuffing that's in the crock pot for this evening's meal.  I found the recipe on the internet.  The traditional recipe that I love has chicken livers (pass the defibrillator!), but none could be found at the grocery store.  The Lucky Penny household is having dinner with one of the best friends a girl could ask for.  I'm not in Wisconsin.  Avoiding a family situation.  I've been living with the aftermath of a crime committed by a sibling, for seven years now.  I refuse to sit across a table from the criminal and pretend there's nothing wrong.  I have found out the hard way that genetics does not always make a family. 
No matter what, I'm going to enjoy this long weekend.  It may or may not involve a road trip, but there's going to be lots of stuff to do.  Feasting.  Knitting.  Quilting.  Cuddling Piccolo. 
The photo is a happy dog quilt that's part of Piccolo's ever growing collection.

What a gorgeous quilt! I have one form my great grandma that has similar fabrics :-}
I am currently reviewing Doggie Knits for Knitcircus (should go live in December) and am loving it :-}
