Day after Thanksgiving:

Wow where is all the time going? Can you beleive there are only 27 days untill christimas! I am just soooooooo far behind this year!. I don't even want to think about christmas shopping again.
We had a nice Thanksgiving dinner with my hubbies son and his family. We all ate wayyyy too much. Hubby cooked a turkey in his newest toy" Its called a char broil oilless fryer. essentially it is a large pot type thing that you put a turkey or anything else in that you want to cook and it cooks faster and without oil. He cooked the turkey in two hours. The turkey was very moist and so far we all love his fryer! We had wayyyyyyyy too much food: We had turkey, ham, a potatoe casserole , mashed potatoes, gravy, collards , spinch dip, yams, creamscicle salad, pumpkin roll, several different cheese cakes and dump cakes rolls, and all the things associated with thanksgiving. And like all good people we ate and went home to lay back in our chairs and watch t.v. lols It was very nice but I soooooooooooo miss having my daughter and my grandkids around too. You would think that being able to spend three weeks with them in July would make me miss them a little less but I think it makes me miss them even more. Being with them for that long gives me a chance to get to know each one of their personalities. Before this we would go back and fourth twice a year for three or four days and they would drive over to our house once so we saw each other three times a year. That is when we only lived about seven hundred miles from each other. I had my own beauty shop so it was difficult to get away any longer at a time then that. Now I am working as a child nutricianist for the school district so that I have my summers off and can fly back for three weeks at a time. I can't wait untill July gets here again.!

I would love to show you all some projects that I have made since my last post but I just haven't managed to get any sewing done. I think between work and the house I am doing good to keep up with my emails. I am hoping very soon I will become inspired to get something completed.
The allergy season is here again. It seems soooooooo strange to suffer from allergies in november but I guess this is normal for north carolina. back home you would suffer durring the summer time. Well I think this is about all that is new around here so I will stop rambling on and hopefully the next time I post " there will be something new to show you. Take care and hope you all had a very nice Thanksgiving!

Late in Posting"

Sorry to be so late in posting but have been sick for almost a month now. The past eight days were spent in the hospital with double pnemonia after many wrong diagnosises.

That being said: I think I may be on the road to recovery. Have you ever been put on streoids? Let me tell you after two weeks of being on those things it is taking me some down time to get my body adjusted to being off of them. couldn;t figure out why I was sooooooo shaky. Not too mention the side effects of eatting everything but the kitchen sink. My poor hubby was beginning to hide from me too. I think he thought I might actually cook him for my next meal!

Now he is going through an upper repiratory infection along with his asthma so if we can just make it through this one maybeeeeeeeeee things will get back to normal.

Gee I can't believe october is over with and november is well on its way. Thanksgiving is just around the corner so naturally I have been recipe hunting. Do any of you go crazzy looking through recipes the way I do? I am finding all kinds of goodies to try out for the season. one is a Luscious four layer pumpkin cake from kraft foods that looks and sounds yummy. Another is mexican wedding cookies from the same source.

Ohhhhhhhhhh I have to post the halloween picture of my youngest granddaughter which my hubby printed out for me while I was in the hospital She is soooooooo tiny. Its hard to believe that she is six months old!!!!!

Is she not just the cutestttttttttt thing you have ever seen!

I also have to add one of my most favorite pictures of my handsome grandson" Isen;t it strange how a certain picture just seems to grab at your heart strings. Well this one is the one that does mine . Not sure why but it just really says Daniel too me"

The next one is Kristina She is another love of my life. Sooooooooooo sweet and sooooooooooo smart. To know her is to love her".

And of course the little blonde is the other love of my life! She can tell you anything and everything you ever wanted to know about bugs! ohhhhhhhhhhhh how I miss these guys!

Hopefully I will feel much better here soon and be able to post some projects. Untill then I am wishing you all a happy holliday season.
