Cold Cold

We were lucky that we didn't get the ice and snow that was located around us. We just got the rain, sleet, and some snow not enough to mount to much. You didn't have to traveled that far from home to find the ice and snow. Basically it depended on where you lived.

   My youngest grandson with his dog doc sitting in front of the window.  I was at his house today after having a Thanksgiving dinner at the nursing home. Doc is one of 5 dogs, but I think this one is more his favorite. They have two that are having some health problems because of age. I think it something happens they are just going to have three. It is his job to take care of the dogs in the afternoon after he comes home from school. He is such a helper. I am going to shorten another pair of pants for him This will make the 4th pair.  He wanted me to fix another of his stuff animals that has a hole. He couldn't find it and wanted me to wait until he did. I told him just to bring it Thanksgiving and grandma would mend it He thinks I can fix anything that requires sewing.

My daughter reminded me that we don't have that long until Christmas. I really didn't want to think about it yet. We will do Thanksgiving at my son's house. They were already planning the menu and I got told to just show up. They take good care of mom.  If it is bad weather, they are just going to come and get me. I can handle that. My son called the day we were getting the rain, freezing rain, and etc. He wanted to know where I was at. I told him I was home and staying there. I had been out long enough to get me some groceries. I bought some bread and lunch meat just in case the lights went out. I really do know what to do if we have that problem. 

My oldest grandson is going to come and help set up for the craft show the 30th, that will be my last one. I could have done some more, but I need to get a wall hanging done and a couple of other things. custom orders.
It has been a fairly good craft season for me and I know what I need to do next year. 

These are two Christmas tea towels that I have finished. Have any of you had a problem loading your pictures in your etsy shop. I keep getting told that my pictures are the wrong size. 

Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving I know that we won't eat to much. Right. I know I ate more then I should have today. Have a good week. Take care.

Sounds like you are going to be well taken care of for thanksgiving. I always run to the grocery store first thing if there is bad weather coming. You never know about the power.

Shirley- Don't you love it when your grandkids think you can fix anything that needs sewing? I just sewed a new seam in toe end of my granddaughter's tights today and she couldn't believe that I could "fix" them cuz her Mom was just going to toss them.

Glad your craft sales went well this Fall-you do such beautiful work. God bless you,Shirley. You are a good soul! xo Diana

And to think I was complaining on my post today about being cold. haha
All I have to do is think of you and how cold it gets where you are and I know I no worries.
So glad your family watches out for their Mom. I wish I were going somewhere because I am stressed trying to figure out everything that needs to be done before Friday.
Hope you stay warm and I wanted to come by say hello and to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving.
Sell out at your crafts fair
