a turkey for your thoughts...a crocheted turkey hat

the funk is lifting.
i mean, in a big way. i credit a lot of it to the fact that i've decided to actively try to fight negative feelings. i'm tackling my challenges today with an attitude of gratitude. for example, this morning i had an eye appt (the lady broke my glasses...but we won't get into that). i was in a major rush. they changed the appt from 845 to 830. so. no longer time to run to the sitters. baby. dr's office. probably not the best combo. but i pressed on. once i get to the dr's office, they seemed confused,  asking why i'm at that office when i should be at an office in another town 20 minutes away. at this point. i might have slipped for a minute. i dare say, i was mad.

but.
i took a step back.
and as i was playing with the lady while waiting for the dr, i realized that things were pretty perfect as they are. sure, i spent a little extra on gas today. but because i had to drive to another town, i got even more singing in the car time with the lady, i got to stop by my dad's office and say "hi"...which means he got to show off his grandbaby (ps...she cried when we left him. i loooove how much she loves her nana and papa), and i stopped by a thrift store on my way home and more than scored with awesome loot (i'll probably post pics later)...
so.
overall, a good morning. and it's just getting better from here. and even if it doesn't, i'm going to make sure it does.
here's one more reason why my funk is lifting.
i have an awesome family. i had seen some pics of these little hats floating around pinterest and sent one to my sister to see if she could re-create it.
and did she ever. 
here's a side view...could you just die?

here's a bird's (teehee) eye view:



and my favorite pic of the day...(do you notice the brownie crumb on her bottom lip? yes, it's true. i bribed the poor girl so i could take a pic of her. she used to be totally into pics-would even pick up the camera and say, "cheese" but now...hmmm...)

honestly, i'm not sure what pattern (if any) she used. she's usually a pretty visual crochet-er.

things i've learned:
1. i'm pretty blessed. as i stop to think about all of the things that i've got going on in my life, freaking crap, people, i'm very lucky. don't get me wrong, i have hardships. life is trying. but my goal is to start being able to be thankful in all things. yikes. did i just jinx myself?
2. my sisters pretty much rock.
