124 days since my last post...what's been going on with Suzy?  Is anyone wondering?  Do I have any readers left?  Well, for the remaining three of you, here's a wrap-up...

JD and I got "re-married" at our church...

We made several road trips to Ohio...

And celebrated Thanksgiving and Christmas with great family and friends.

But the real culprit in my lack of posts?

Knitting.  I took a beginner's knitting class on November 3, and that has consumed nearly all of my time ever since.  Poor JD rarely gets a decent meal any more, and I even skipped my usual crazy Christmas Cookie-Palooza, for the first time in many many years.

I was hoping I would like knitting, but I was really unprepared for how much I love it.  I find it so relaxing and so satisfying...not at all stressful or frustrating.  In the past I've tried sewing, counted-cross stitch, and several other crafty-type things, but nothing hit me like knitting has.  I'm officially obsessed.

So far I've made myself a scarf...

A cute beanie-style hat...

Started a hat for JD...

And a shawl for me is currently in the works.

So, my future posts may either be few and far-between, or be knitting related.  That still counts as goodies, right?

As for kitchen goodies, I made Giada's turkey and this peanut butter pie for Thanksgiving, my usual standing rib roast for Christmas, and just last night, this yummy baked ziti.

Wish me luck in getting back on the cooking bandwagon!
