Day 24

Ahhhhhh...............I am finally home for the day.  Let me start with our celebration yesterday.

This was the place settings for each of us.  This is my mother's china and her turkey napkin rings.  My Daughter in Law promised to use the china for each holiday as long as my mother was alive.  She has kept her word too.

The candlestick holders were also my mother's as were the turkey placemats.  It was a lovely dinner.  Everything tasted so good but I was soooooooo full when we were done.  I kind of just rolled out of my chair.

Yesterday was also the wedding anniversary of the host and hostess of our celebration.  That being said, we offered to take the grand home with us for the night so they could have some alone time and maybe even have a date night.

This morning I had a nail appointment and took the grand with me.  She was anticipating an hour of just hanging around when this happened:

I treated her to a nice pedicure.  She was in dire need of one and loved it.  My normal nail guru was not there (I knew this before hand) so I had a different tech today.  Not super happy with the outcome of my nails and was not informed the price of the 'new' polish I selected was an additional cost.  Will not be going back to that tech but will wait for mine to come back from vacation the next time.  Lesson learned.

After our spa treatment we went to lunch at Panda Express.  She loves that place and I have not issue eating there either.  My hubby is not big on oriental food so when she is with me, we go for it!  As soon as lunch was over we headed off to a black Friday LuLaRoe open house.  We each found several pieces of clothing to compliment our wardrobes and got them at a super duper price.

I had to hurry to get her home.  Her girl scout troop is in a parade tonight and she needed to get her costume and hair done for it.  Her troop is going to be handing out candy and they are supposed to be Grinchs.  It is a light parade, so all the costumes are required to have at least 100 lights on them.  I got to weave lights into her tutu and then help to staple lights onto her mom's sweater.  Dad's sweater got done by Mom, so that was good.

You have got to see this hairdo:

There is a red solo cup on top of her head and pipe cleaners in her braids.  Love it!  Her mom is fantastic at doing hair.

I am not home and have put all my clothing away.  I had a couple of packages in the mail today also. One had leggings in it and the other jewelry for gifts.  That has all been sorted and put away and I am not thinking of dinner.  We brought home leftover turkey for sandwiches and we also got some pumpkin pie from yesterday.  Sounds like my type of dinner tonight.

I have a couple loads of laundry I need to do so I can get our clothes together for our trip.  Hubby would also like for me to bake some more Malachi's cookies for the trip.  I guess I am going to be very busy for the next 36 hours.

Until next time...........................happy crafting!

Thanksgiving Day..................................23


I was going to wait until after we had our Thanksgiving celebration, to post to my blog.  I will have photos by then.  I figured I can post those photos tomorrow.

Right now I am doing a bit of laundry.  I just pulled out a loaf of bread from the bread machine.  Hubby is watching football.  There is cheese and summer sausage to be cut to take for snacks today.  

Other than that, it has been a lazy morning.  I am not rushing around to do anything.  The above chores are being done at my pace.  We do not need to be to my Son's until 2 and dinner is not until 4.  No big rush for anything today.  

Hubby and I still have adoration tonight at 9.  That being said, we will be coming home shortly after dinner.  That gives my son and his family time to themselves too.  It is their wedding anniversary today too!  Nothing like having a double whammy going on.

May I just say,.........................I am extremely thankful for all of you who read my blog.  I am thankful for my extended knitting family from whom I have learned so much and have received so much love from.  I am so blessed.  There is no way I could even begin to list all the things I am thankful for.  The Lord has been very good to me.  Tonight, during adoration, I will bring to my mind all the blessings I have received and thank God for them.

Until next time...............................Happy Crafting!

22nd Day

Howdy.  Can you believe that we are almost out of the month of November?  Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day for those of us in America.  A day to think about all the blessings each of us has and be thankful for all those matter how big or small.  It is also a day of food and family.  Hubby and I will be at our Son's home.  I will have more to say about that tomorrow.

Today..............hubby had another post op visit with his ENT Doctor.  He is healing but it is just taking a looooong time.  We see the Doctor again in 2 more weeks and hopefully we will be discharged completely then.  It will be hard to not see this Doctor again for a while.  We have actually become friends with him and have so enjoyed our visits with him.

After the appointment, we headed to Costco to pick up a few items we forgot the last time we were there.  I was surprised.  The store was not as horrible as I thought it would be the day before Thanksgiving.  We were in and out in less than 30 minutes.

I visited my mom this afternoon.  I won't be back out to see her for a week.  Lucky for me, my son and daughter will fill in for me while I am gone.

After visiting my mom, I stopped off at one of my local LuLaRoe dealers and picked up some clothes I had ordered and also picked up my BFF's order too.  I took BFF's clothes over to her and then I got home.

I have programmed the TV to record all the new Hallmark Christmas movies until December 9th.  The TV won't let me go beyond the 8th at this time.  We have watched all other new movies that were recorded prior to today.  This is a tradition we started about 4 years ago.  We love watching them in the evening just before bed.  They are always wholesome and have a happy ending.  Like having a bedtime story read to you.

That is all for today.  I have not touched my mini sweaters in over 24 hours.  I still have 2 done and a third one on the needles.  I did get one sleeve almost completed and still have another sleeve to go.  Maybe I can finish that tonight and start on another one.  I will be able to work on them tomorrow while waiting for dinner to get completed.  Might get another one done tomorrow too!

Until next time...........................happy crafting!
