Holiday Season

This was sent to me by a very good friend and I find it so true. The holiday season is a time to hear from family and friends. It means a great deal to me to have the friendship that I have found here in blog land.
You all have helped me get through some very trying times without realizing it by just dropping by and leaving a comment.
I have all of my craft shows over for this year. I ended up doing 4 in a roll which I hadn't planned on doing that many, but it was a way to spend time with my daughter-in-law and grandson. He has already asked if we are doing the one in Forest City this next year. I have to plan further ahead if I am going to do that.
Thanksgiving was a day with family. Everybody there and the boys were having a great time playing. We set around the dining room table looking at all of the want ads. My daughter was going shopping on Black Friday so I gave her money to get a couple of items for me. There is no way I will attempt to go. I don't like to shop right now because the stores are not as wheel chair friendly as they need to be with putting things in the isles.  People like to stand in the way and you can't get through.  I get tempted to run into them with the wheel chair. I have never done that, but the temptation is there. 

We all talked with our son in Louisiana which made his day and ours. He didn't have time to come home for Thanksgiving, we don't know if he will fly home for the weekend at Christmas or not. We will have to wait and see. 
We got two doctor appointments next month and then the year will be over. It has flown so fast that you wonder where it went.
All of my new Christmas tea towels have already sold at the craft shows. I am trying some new thread on the one that I am making right now. I have enjoyed not setting the alarm clock and sleeping late. The four days went much to fast. It is back to work tomorrow. Have a great week.

Hi Shirley-
That is a lovely little token of friendship that you were given- it really is amazing that we've made so many friends in blog land. I had NO idea that it would be like this when I first started my blog~~

I did all my shopping on line this year - the Black Friday deals were really good online as well - and the best part is that I did not have to go out!

How wonderful that all of your craft items sold all ready - that is marvelous - and must make you feel so great!

Hi Shirley ♥
So happy you had anice Thanksgiving. You've been on my mind and I keep meaning to pop in and say hi, but it seems my time is not my own. So tired of being takes so much energy to try to stay positive. It's all I can do sometimes is to make and keep listing and promoting to make some of that darned old money.
Wishing you a lovely day!
