Are you ready for Thanksgiving? Do have tradition that you always do? Or are you just thankful to spend the time with family?
I will spend time with my three grandsons and family plus a stop later in the day at the nursing home to see hubby. He has been sick with pneumonia. They are trying to figure out what they are going to do because he coughs so much. It is loose, but he doesn't cough it up nor can he blow it out.
The only way they found out he had pneumonia was from the chest x-ray. I will probably go check on him after I run errands today.
Tomorrow is the day I get to spend with my oldest grandson. We do a craft show together, whether we sell much or not it is always an enjoyable day. He is making another of his boxes for a lady out of walnut it is going to be so pretty He just has to finish his lid. . He was so proud of it so far. I haven't seen anything that he can't make. He showed me a picture of one of his Christmas ornaments that he cut out.
I don't have a picture of my Christmas bells and candles table topper to show to you all. I sold it before I got a picture of it. I was really surprised how quick that it went, but needless to say it made me happy. The fingers have been very busy. I have made 5 Christmas tea towels since I started one at the juried craft show. I would do that show again if the opportunity is available. They had a total of 123 vendors, but what I liked was where homemade was in one room, direct sales such as pamper chef, scentsy, and etc. were in another room.
They keep talking like we are going to have rain and possibly snow later today. So far it looks like it is to the north of us. We had two days of rain this week. The loud clap of thunder and lightening woke me up one morning. The wind was bad with tree limbs down along with power lines. I was lucky I didn't have any limbs down nor did I lose my electricity.
Basketball practice started last night for my middle grandson so he is all happy.
They were having a problem finding a place to practice and he was worried they wouldn't find one. He loves playing basketball. So grandma will have to fit that into my schedule. I love watching what ever the kids are involved in.
Are you ready for the colder weather? I can handle it as long as we don't have ice. Of course the kids love the snow so they can go coasting. We loved the coasting parties when I was growing up. Mom would have hot chocolate and cookies for us when we came in. We all had our friends, but mom and dad never seemed to mind how many kids were at the house. We got in trouble when we used mom's wash tub and dad's scoop shovel to slide on, but boy that was fun. We took our sleds to school and went out at lunch time to coast. Of course we didn't want to go back in. The one room school house I started in is still standing.
To think about making cookies, taffy, stringing popcorn for the Christmas tree that dad would go cut. The bubble lights, homemade garland out of red and green construction paper. Kids wouldn't probably think it was fun today with all of the electronics they have instead of doing other things. .
I get my Christmas wish. My oldest boy will be flying home on Christmas Eve for a visit .
Those long distance hugs will be real and in person. I will spend as much time as possible with him while he is home. I am looking forward to it.
I thought I better let you know I wasn't lost just busy. Have a great day.
