About Me

My photo
I'm a wife, mom, grandmother and great grandmother. I try to be creative - sometimes it works, most times it doesn't. I'm my own worst critic! I'm self taught in a lot of my crafts, but have taken quilting classes and most recently a beginner's rug hooking class. I enjoy both crafts tremendously. I'd like to learn to be a better gardener.

Getting ready for Thanksgiving!

I had a busy, busy weekend.  Had lunch with friends at Frankie's in North Olmsted (Ohio).  Then left there, went to the Farm Market and bought a few things in preparation for my daughter and her family (she has six children - ages 17 - 6 months!!!) to come.  Sunday cleaned house, moved stuff around in the basement to set up the tables for our Thanksgiving dinner (which will actually be on Saturday) and washed clothes.  I also got some work done on my Christmas crafts. 

Then last night went home, worked some more on my Christmas crafts, ate dinner, did the dishes, and then wound down for the night. 

Today I'll go home, go to the grocery store to buy the last minute things I need, grab something to eat while we're out.  Then I'll get home and bake some brownies and add peanut butter frosting to them because my grandson, Andrew, loves, loves, loves peanut butter.  I'll make a double pot of chili for when my daughter and her family arrive tomorrow.

Thursday my daughter and her family will go to her grandma's house for dinner leaving my husband and I to some peace and quiet for a while.

Friday I'll make peanut butter pie, pumpkin cake, and prepare as many of the side dishes as I can before Saturday so that basically all we'll have to do is put the turkey in the roaster and make the mashed potatoes and gravy.

Whew!  I tell you this because I had hoped to post pictures of my painted silk scarves I made in the class last week but just haven't had a spare second to do it!

Hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. Sometimes don't you wish that there were more than 24 hours in a day so you could get it all done. Sound to me like you got your plate full.
    Happy Thanksgiving. JB
