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!
Yummy!!! Looks good!

I hope you will like this book. It is one of my favorites, and I keep it near me all year long when I want to feel Christmas. If there are any times when you need Christmas near, just open this book and let the magic take you away, too. Merry Christmas in February with love, Luanne." Can you guess that I have tears in my eyes right now?
That is beautiful, I miss her so much at this time. I see polar bear ornaments, or the holiday edition Barbie she looked so forward to purchasing every year, and my thoughts go right to her. I have an ornament of a hockey playing bear that she sent me, it will be right in the front of the tree this year.
