Are you ready for Thanksgiving? Do you have plans to travel? Have you already left for your destination? If you are driving, please be safe. 
My day will start off with lunch with my son,daughter-in-law, their two boys, my daughter, son-in-law, and their son. I was hoping maybe our oldest would be able to come home, but with the bad weather to the south of us, maybe it will be just as well he isn't. He was wanting to drive home. In the afternoon, I will go to the nursing home taking hubby his supper.  He has already talked to my daughter-in-law what he would like to have.  We are having both turkey and ham. He likes ham the best and they don't get that much of it. Of course, she and the boys are making cranberry tarts for partially for him.  
Our southern states aren't use to the ice. Let's face it we have just had some weird weather and what you got depended on where you are at.  I have seen pictures of all kinds lately and we just pray that everything will work out. 
We continue to ask for prayers for people. My friend  Nana Diane needs them for her very sick grandson very badly. She does so much for us now it is time to give back. It is a little easier to take when it is an adult, but when it is a child, they can't maybe tell you what you need to know. 
Finally, I have a doctor appointment for the 5th of Dec to find out maybe why my hubby gained 17 lbs in one month and continues to gain weight. It is not what he is eating because his appetite is not that good. It means getting up really early, but I can handle that. We are going to start with the liver doctor and go from there. I don't think they were to happy with me at the nursing home, but at the moment I want some answers.  I am tired of their excuses.  I didn't trust what I was told so I called the doctor's offices and started asking questions which is my right. I, also, told them what was going on so we could get him in without waiting until January.
Saturday is my last craft show for this year.  I sent my hummingbird pillowcases to a new home in Texas. I am working on my wall hanging, the biggest problem is keeping the material tight in my hoop. Anybody have  any suggestions? 
Have a wonderful day tomorrow. I know we will all probably eat more then we should. Take care and be safe.

My sweet friend..I wish you much love and happiness this Thanksgiving. It's late so I just wanted stop by and tell you that you mean so much to me and for that I am thankful for!

I have prayed for the small child.
Good for you. You stay after those doctors. You have to. No one else is.
Wrap the hoop with ribbon or something? I use a Q-snap. I use pieces of cotton batting with it to keep the fabric very tight.
A Blessed, Happy Thanksgiving to you all.

I hope your day went well. I hope Hubby enjoyed his dinner that you took him. It is your right to find out what is going on with your husband. If the nursing home gets upset about this they must not feel secure enough about what is happening. It is snowy and icy around here. I hope you week-end goes well. (((((HUGS))))

I think you are absolutely right to make that appointment. There is something wrong. Keep asking questions and watching. Happy Thanksgiving

Shirley- I hope your holiday was wonderful with your family and then your husband. I know it must be hard to spend time apart from your husband.

I'm concerned about your husband-- saying prayers that you get some answers soon. Please email me and let me know.

I love Diana- she is a precious soul-- I will remember her grandson in my prayers.

Shirley, I pray that they can find out something about your husband and explain it to you. I have been keeping Diana and her whole family in my prayers. Having sick children is hard to take. Thinking of you Shirley. xoxo,Susie

Hi Shirley! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. It's always nice to get together with family and celebrate. And I'm glad your husband got some yummies too. I hope everything works out with the doctor appointment and that you can get some answers.
We didn't get any ice here in the Dallas area. They had promised us 3 days straight of ice. I'm glad they were completely wrong.
Lots of prayers for you, your husband and friend.
