I can't believe it is Sunday night already! It has been a good time off, though and the week ahead is going to be very busy! We have a funeral to prepare for on Saturday at the church, so you know that will take a pretty big chunk of time!

I have felt less than stellar today and it has been awhile since I have felt yucky! Going to bed here soon sounds really, really good!

Hannah and Johnny were over with their daddy this afternoon while their mama got caught up on some house cleaning. I remember not being able to get a thing done with little ones under foot! Tomorrow I am going over there to paint. It is girl's craft night and evidently we are painting - oh, boy!

Little John is doing much better with his cast. He doesn't seem to be in so much pain and can now stand up so it won't be long and he will be getting around in record time! He called me "grandma" for the first time today! Does a granny's heart good!

Well, I think I really will close this up and head on off to dreamland! Another busy day tomorrow!

Catching Up

I so do not want to be doing housework and laundry, but somehow it all needs to get done - again! Even with only two of us, we generate plenty of trash, dirty clothes and junk! I did get a few things accomplished, though and while I have not braved the malls yet, I did go to Costco - brave of me, don't you think? Anyway, lots to do and sewing projects besides! Catch you later!

Thanksgiving Day pictures!

Thanksgiving 2008

I think I knew that one day I would be doing this! I'm the tekkie in the family and love the social networking, etc. So now I can rant all I want, huh? Well, it will take a little getting used to, but I think I am going to like this. I'll sure give it a try!
The big event this year for Thanksgiving was the baton being passed. I didn't "do" the Thanksgiving dinner, but was only a provider! We went to our youngest son and daughter in law's house that they share with our middle son. My husband's mother was there, too so we had everyone from one to 93 there having a great time! Instead of the traditional roasted turkey they did a deep fried one, and to go with it we had squash, stuffing x 2 types, mashed potatoes, etc., etc., etc. I provided the dessert and veggie tray. It was pretty neat. I wasn't sure how I would react to not being the hostess, but you know, it was all right! I helped in the kitchen a little, played with the grandkids and visited with adults! Wow! A whole new chapter has opened up for me! (Well, us, of course!) I think we will adapt just fine, thank you!!
