There may not be another minute free...

so wanted to waddle in here this morning to wish y'all a very Happy Thanksgiving!

and to share some really cute vintage images...

I hope your day is festive...

and your table full...

and those crazy relatives take their meds before popping in...

that travel is safe...

and health is abundant...

that you are able to see all the good in your life...

so you can appreciate all the blessings that God has given you...

and all the prep work is done easily and with a joyful heart...

and that you remember...

that the clean up builds character...

auntie Sue is doing the best she can...

that if you drop it on the floor, a good blessing has you covered...

don't go in the bathroom after uncle Lloyd without a gas mask...

its only once a year...

and... the most important thing...

remember the empty seats now have made you who you are and have filled your heart with so much love and caring....
and...
they are not gone...
they are with you with every breath you take...
:)

Happy Thanksgiving from our house to yours...
bless you and your family and friends...
prayers for a wonderful day for all of you...
:)

getting ready...

are you making your plans for this week?
are you cooking and having the dinner or going somewhere else?

got the dinner list made...
need to make the grocery list for it...
and we are having our dinner on Saturday...
due to work schedules...

on Thursday, I am sending the old man up to the community dinner to get us meals to go...
its a free dinner, but you are allowed to make a donation...
this program is so needed in every town...
there are so many alone...
or without funds to do a traditional dinner...
so many go up to be with others so they are not alone...
:)

we are having a neighbor come...
who is alone...
and he can come both days if he wishes...
if we all just took some time to check on those who live right around us on all occasions...
no one would be left out...
or alone...
or hungry...

thankful for all of those who help feed others, hold their hands...
send cards and letters, or visit someone alone...
or sad...
so thankful for those who believe that we are our brother's keeper...
for they heal the broken hearted...
:)

Happy Thanksgiving...

another week closer...

its either a good day or a bad one for me lately...

like every other day I am ok...
and then the other days, not so good...

I was so sick yesterday, I had to call and cancel my ortho surgeon appointment...

but Steve went and saw his general surgeon for his colonoscopy...
got that set up for Dec 6th...

not sure if I had a tummy flu or the nitrates in the water here were high...
but the guys put me on bottled water for now and I am fine...
the cats all started throwing up about a week ago and we switched them and they were fine within hours!

we have gotten 2 $100 donations for the toy drive already...
stoked about that...
so many help out every year...
its just amazing what we can all do together...

we are looking forward to a nice, quiet weekend...
next week is going to be messed up...
Thanksgiving will be Sat, I think...
still talking about it...
Craig works Thursday...
they both work Friday...
but all of us will be home on Saturday...
:)
the joy of retail...

can the holidays really be coming????
amazing, isn't it?
LOL

great fall weekend...

still feels funny having DH home so much...
but we did get a drive in yesterday afternoon...

it was drizzly and cool out...

and we weren't gone long...

we made chicken and noodles with mashed potatoes for supper last night...
it was good...

started pushing the toy drive online...
the ducks are all in a row...
we are on our way to another great year...
so many on board with this and ready to do whatever needs done...

we have announced to the helper elves that this is probably our last year...
running things...
we can still be helper elves...
but I really have this feeling its time to hand this over to someone else...
I am not sure that God is going to give us a rest or lead us into something new...
time will tell on that...

I am just waiting on the lead to the next person(s) in charge...
He will let me know...

have a great Monday!
(and yes, there is such a thing!)
:)

here comes the weekend...

a few more black and white photos...

from back in the spring...

both guys are off tomorrow and I don't have a single thing planned...
bad me...

we have a high of 39 today...
down in the 20s last night...

the plants that were hanging on are black now...

but I doubt if it will be a work out in the yard weekend...
we are supposed to warm back up in the high 50...
but its going to take a few days to do it...

our miss Annie went to the vet yesterday to be spayed...
and she was pregnant again...
it was still early, so they went ahead with it...
there were 5 more....
they kept her over night and DH will go there right after work and pick her up...
he's bringing Burger King whoppers and onion rings home for supper!
Annie will be glad to get home...
that's all of them done now...
whew...

had lunch already and thinking about a nap...
all the house work I wanted to get done is finished...
:)

have a great weekend and hope its warmer where you are!
