Happy Saturday Morn

Well, I'm up and about for more then several hours now, rising very early with all kinds of plans in my head for cleaning, washing, cooking and so far I've managed a load of laundry and have produced a cup of coffee and settled here a while ago surfing around looking for pillow patterns.  I may have to break down and order a book as I saw a lovely crocheted pillow sham.

We were fortunate that the predicted ugly storm weather bypassed us giving us instead sunshine along with the cold.  That we can handle.  The sinus ... well that's another story and the reason for the hold-up on the morning activities.  Usually by this time I have most of everything done, off now to tackle one more thing.

Best to your day...

Yay ... pictures ... shopping ...nay!

Well, I have to go through another avenue to get a picture here, but that's ok.

Having finished my greengate blanket (I need to get a better picture then what I had taken so I will save that for another time) I've started on working on a pillow ... a rose pillow.   A 16 inch form will be used, a nice size I think.   This is one of many pillows that I will need ... so I'm on the lookout for pillows.  If you see one that is interesting/different I would appreciate a link.

Hope your Thanksgiving was a good one.   The holidays are now in motion.  I ate far too much.  I keep saying tomorrow begins the diet, I really need to have that happen!

I have to say that I am disappointed in many stores this year.  I cannot believe that the sales started on Thanksgiving Day.  We've totally lost our family time.  Not a good thing.  I miss the days when a holiday was truly a holiday.

Blessings and joy to your day ...

Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving on the horizon.  Tonight roasted hazelnuts, walnuts, almonds, pecans ... filling the homested with a wonderful aroma.  The holiday season is kicked off.  When I think of Thanksgiving, I think of the scents and sounds of the day.  There is nothing better then the comforting warmth of the smell of the turkey roasting, with the background sounds of March of The Wooden Soldiers.  It always brings a smile to my face, tenderness to my heart.  I look at my little grandpumpkin and I remember, my own two once his size, the gathering in our dining room, the hours spent at the table.  Time continues to march on and in many ways the day has changed, but in many ways it is still the same.  I still look forward to the scents and sounds and the new memories that are being made.  I am thankful.

Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving, 
a day and more of 
blessings and

Still no pictures.

Ok, I'm on a roll.  Second post in a few days.  I am disappointed that I cannot seem to load pictures into the posts, hoping that this corrects itself soon.  I did finished my greengate blanket and am now starting to work on a pillow ... a round rose in white.  But I CAN'T SHOW YOU.  Ok, ok, some patience.  But hopefully this corrects itself quickly.  My DIL put up a Christmas tree ... white and red lights.  Absolutely awesome. I find I can just sit there and look at it.  But you won't be able to see it ... pooh!  Tomorrow night we are making ornaments with the grandpumpkin for the tree.  Don't know how much he will get done as he's 2 plus a few months, but I think the mom and the grandmom will have have a blast!

Thank you for the sweet comments and visits.  Glad to be back.

As a working gal again, almost time to call it a night.
 Sweet dreams and blessings.

How long did you say?

Three months???  Haven't blogged in three months?  Goodness, coming our of retirement has changed the routine, but am enjoying being "out there" again.  Doesn't seem like much has changed with blogger ... I can't seem to upload pictures.  Well, maybe another time.  Anyway, just wanted to say hi and try and get back in the swing.  Have missed visiting all those wonderful blogs out there.  Look forward to seeing you!
