Thanksgiving is quickly approaching. It is a time for eating way to much and wishing that you hadn't afterwards. Ours will be a quiet Thanksgiving with all of our children going different directions. It has come a time in lives where choices need to be made instead of trying to do two to three places in one day. The boys are getting older and they have things that they want to do instead of traveling.
This past weekend we celebrated my brother's 80Th birthday. He is the oldest of ten of us. Being our parents are deceased, he has kinda appointed himself head of the family which is fine. He had triple bi-pass surgery earlier this year which has given him a new look on life. To look at him you would not believe he is that old. All of his children, grand children, and great grandchildren were there. Some I hadn't seen for quite a while. It was a fun afternoon which the time went by way to fast. We came home in the sleet and rain. The wind was blowing and really made it cold.
Monday started off with sleet, rain, and then snow. The snow hasn't lasted long, but it has been very cold and damp. It makes the bones hurt. I already have made arrangements for my snow removal this year. I don't have to call him, he just puts me on the list of his snow removal customers. I really appreciate not having to worry about it. It is funny what we don't want to be bothered with as we get older. I know I keep getting told you are only as old as you feel. I want to wish everyone who visits a Happy Thanksgiving. I must get back to my embroidery for it has to be done by the weekend.
