At the Summit

My family and I rented a cabin just outside of Helen Georgia for Thanksgiving. We were there four days. We were literally at the summit of a mountaintop, which made for a spectacular view. Here’s a panoramic shot from Saturday morning when the fog from the rain was rolling in:

The cabin was lovely (but full of stuffed animals mounted on the walls). The kicker was this one as we walked in the cabin:

I won’t say here what I was thinking when I saw it. 😉

Here’s the cabin itself. Notice the apparently non-existent driveway? It’s there, but very very very VERY steep. Kind of like driving off a cliff when you go down it. We only did it a couple of times, and then spent the rest of the trip parked up top in the cul-de-sac. We even loaded the car back up by hauling everything up the driveway to the car. 🙂

I bought a little souvenir while in Helen. I saw this doll in the music box store and had to have her:

Isn’t she sweet? She plays “Over the Rainbow” of course! And her head moves back and forth while she plays. She’s only about 4 inches high while sitting – so cute!

I got some knitting done while we were gone too! I couldn’t work on my Christmas knitting (which is coming along nicely – only two more things to knit!! I won’t post any pics of them here in case it spoils the surprise for the intended recipients!), so I worked on the sweater I’m making for DS#1. It was so lovely sitting and knitting by the fireplace.

This was almost entirely knit over the 4 days in the cabin (I had done the first inch prior to our vacation). I’m almost done with the back! Now it’s being set aside to finish my Christmas knitting.

Well, that’s it for now. I promise to post more knitting content after all Christmas presents have been given! 🙂 Believe me, I have one in particular that’s not to be missed!! 😉
