{ soggy Sunday }

Hi folks~
well here it is raining again...
my stars, if this was all snow, we'd be living in an igloo I'm afraid!
instead, we're still bailing water from the basement from last weekend's downpour...
and this certainly isn't helping one little bit!!

So, what better way to spend the day, than preparing my Thanksgiving menu.
yes, traditional it will be...
my hubby's side of the family grew up with an Italian mother, so alongside the Turkey
there is always lasagna, rice or wheat pies, and a huge antipasta (salad)
am so looking forward to all the good food!
{ although I have been trying to lose the spare tire around my middle,...
I've been walking on the treadmill and "trying" to watch what I eat...
oh I watch it alright, ...i watch it go right into my mouth! }

and, when I'm done jotting down my grocery list,
then I'll finish the background of my new needlepunch pattern~
"In The Meadow"
so I can get it listed onto ebay for you today.
I'll post pics later this aft...

Also, i will be listing a Christmas/Winter Fraktur in one of my hand-painted frames...
this one will not be madeinto a print, it is a OOAK....
So off I go, to find my pencil, needle and watercolors...
What are your plans for your Thanksgiving?
keep my friend Sherry Kristoff in your thoughts and prayers
as she is having some major health issues....

Peace & Plenty be yours,

Healing thoughts on the way to Sherry.

Healing thoughts and prayers going up for Sherry!
We will be spending Thanksgiving with John's family...Mom & Pop will leave Fri morning for the winter to south TX & they don't usually come home for Christmas so Thanksgiving has turned into the family gathering time...no gift exchange, just time spent with family and good food!!

I will be alone with my hubbie.
Thanksgiving has turned sad for us right now. My son is in Afghanistan in the combat zone and my daughter has decided not to come home from college. She is being rude right now. So, it's just me and my hubbie.
I will be thinking about Sherry.
It's raining here too.Funny, cause I just told my husband that if we have as much snow as we did rain this Fall we will be knee high in snow alot! LOL
