Although our sunset was very much like this one, it was just too cold out to grab the camera for a shot of it ~ but thanks to the wonderful world of the internet you can still enjoy the beauty I appreciated tonight.

And the writing is so appropriate for an evening blog posting.

Although Christmas will soon be here and the baking, shopping, wrapping, decorating etc. is on the horizon; right now I am so ready for a little break. 

I’ve been pushing myself for the past couple of weeks prepping for a craft show. The show was held on Saturday. The sewing machine was humming along as I was stitching up little aprons and pot holders. Then the kitchen counter was taken over with cupcakes and cookies.  Thankfully the canning was done and the relishes and the jyrup (that’s my original word for a cross between a jelly and a syrup) only needed to be loaded and unloaded.

My sister Melody from UpNorthWithMel came to join me for the sale with some of her beautiful birdhouses and jams .  It was so much fun and the fact that we both made a bit of money was the bonus.

The evenings were spent playing board games and laughing to the point of tears.  Our oldest sister Linda rode along with Mel and it was a blast just catching up and going back to the old days of game playing.

I hope you smiled as much as I did this past weekend.  But I already miss them.

Welcome November

Is it just me or are you having a hard time believing that it’s November already?  I’m finding that the old saying is true - The older you get the faster time flies by. 

Although I’m still in denial about turning 60, time sure seems to be flying by at rocket speed. 

Wasn’t it just yesterday that I planted the garden?  And now as the calendar page is flipped I’m already thinking of Thanksgiving ~ Turkey and all the goodies that goes with it.

I found this picture of a pumpkin pie on the net and I immediately went into drool mode. 

Give Thanks and enjoy each and every day that God blesses you with.
