Being able to share with friends, both the good times and the bad times, is what friends are for. Thinking of your and all your family during this time. Peace be with you.

Thanks again for your prayers & thoughts.

I never knew what a job it is to remodel just one kitchen/den area of a house! The concrete contractor came over yesterday just as we got back into town from Madera. We attended the Eagle Scout Court of Honor for our nephew. It was awesome!!! Made, Brad, and Coach (I think) are among those ranks of Eagle Scouts!!!

LittleCS is working on her gingerbread log cabin and it is looking great!
My covered bridge fell apart yesterday when I foolishly decided to turn it over. Nothing broke, just came apart. So I will have to scrape off all that icing and put it back together again. sigh Oh well, repair work in decorating cakes ect happens often, it is to be expected.

So I will spend my day resting lots and hanging out here.
Sorry you aren't feeling well. Hope you are better quick too!

Good morning MMC! Time is going so fast! I'm still in disbelief that Thanksgiving is NEXT week! And T-day is late this year! It's crazy!

Not much going on around here today. Last night I tried to make a cornucopia - it has a little to be desired but I'm going to use it anyway. I'm planning to fill it with cheese chunks & maybe some grapes?



I stuck it in the freezer - says to keep the aluminum foil inside to hold the shape. So I will pull it out next week & see how it held up. The recipe says to fill it with cheese (or whatever you prefer) 1 day & the next day you can fill it with spinach dip & use the bread for dipping! Hmmm....

Hope you are all having a great day!!! I'm ready to get home from work & start crossing off my "to do" list for Thanksgiving!

Enjoy putting up the tree!
I don't have a tape player. I went and bought the radio tuner but the music comes through very faint and with a lot of static. I'm out of luck!

I remember when my son was still a baby we had a major house fire and had to rebuild the whole inside, it was so much work. It will all be worth it when it is done!
