I knit. And I cook, write, take pictures. All for one low price.

O Happy Day

It's Inauguration Day.

I am prepared to get very emotional during the ceremony, alone at home, glued to the television.
While a dark cloud lifted the day that Barack Obama won the US presidential elections, today is the day that reality sets in. It is really happening.

I am once again proud to be living here.

i took the day off so i could stay home and watch every minute. i thought i would get a lot of knitting done but in reality i was so glued to all that was happening that my knitting often set idle. what a great day

I went to Jillian's to watch with some friends. It was like being a football game. Everyone was standing and cheering. I was teary. It's a new feeling to hold the President in such high regard. What a great day! Cathy

Thanks for your comment on my blog on this same topic! It was, in a political sense, the best day of my life so far living in the US! Considering I've been here 6.5 years, that is saying a lot!
