Home Again, Home Again, Jiggity Jig


~as my Husband would say... Something I have realized he learned from his Mother. I'm sure you are aware of the Mother Goose Rhyme... To Market, To Market; Well this is their shortened version which I now say after spending the past two weeks with my Mother In Law.

I must admit we had a wonderful time, minus my two illnesses. My MIL took care of me, Max and Asher so wonderfully we are truly grateful. I read 1 book and started another, finished knitting a sweater, and finished knitting Max's Stroller Blanket (good thing cause it got cold in Maine). We also got 50% of our Christmas shopping done!

We had a happy, wonderful, and filling Thanksgiving, including: Several bad jokes, old friends and new friends, one 92 year old matriarch, one very hospitable hostes, three teenagers, two siblings, three in-laws, five dogs, two babies, and five pies.

Anyone want to do the math?

I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving. I did. I am truly grateful for the family I share and the life I have. After two weeks of fun and friendship I am happy to be home with my loving husband, new baby and crazy dog. Here's to Thanksgiving may it be remembered everyday and here here to that FAT PIG!


  1. Wonderfully said, Miss Janie! Wonderfully said!

  2. We always have said, "Home again, Home again" but our oldest daughter used to say "Jigliahjig" when she was tiny, so that's how we've said it ever since. Pretty much every time we drive in our garage. Glad you had a nice Thanksgiving. You are incredibly lucky to have a MIL who you love so much and who loves you. When do I see Max again?
