I had a migraine either last Thursday or the Thursday before. I knew I should have written down the time and date in my PDA as soon as I got to work, but I didn't and now I can't recall when I had it. This was the first full blown migraine I can recall having in the past ten years, so I wonder what triggered it. I'm lucky in that all of my migraines have been strictly optical. (No pain. Just visual phenomenon.)

Yesterday jebra and I spent the entire afternoon working in the yard. He trimmed the shrubs in front of the house and pruned our beech. I raked leaves and chipped yard waste. Fifteen bags worth.

After working the yard and getting cleaned up, I came inside and relaxed on the couch. I did some knitting and watched an episode of Columbo with jebra and mbumby. While she was here, I asked her to model the hat I'd made the other week. It's child-sized and wouldn't fit on my head. She found it a tight fit, but managed to get it on her head. I also finished the market bag I made for myself. Pictures under the cut.

Today we celebrated an early Thanksgiving with friends. In a shocking turn of events, I was put to work in the kitchen. I peeled apples, then later the sweet potatoes. When I wasn't working with the peeler, I was either knitting or crocheting. I'm working on two more scarves. I'd hoped to finish the crochet one today, but I ran out of yarn.

Cute hat! I can't knit for toffee, but my beloved Nannan could make up her own patterns, sometimes as she went along! I was always in awe.

Sorry to hear about the migraine, I hope you find out what the trigger was, and I'm pleased you don't get pain, although the visual disturbances must be very unpleasant. Here's hoping you don't get another one for another ten years!

Nice hat! I was trying to make one in gray wool just like that but never did finish it. I know it's around here somewhere...
