Happy Thanksgiving!

 I hope that all of you enjoy a day with family and friends during this weekend! We celebrate on Saturday as the guys hunt on Thanksgiving and they are pretty tired to celebrate much with family! So, we just changed the day! Kurt brought 4 pies from Bakers Square and I' m doing the rest! It's easy peazy! Turkey, stuffing or dressing, jello salad, potatoes, bakery rolls, and of course, gravy!
So, here's to enjoying the day! Being so thankful for family, our country, men and women who serve  our country in some sort of service(police, service men, firemen, and EMT's, this includes women). Thankful to God for living in this country! Blessings!!

Annual Craft show, year 14 for me

I figured out the other day that I have been making and selling my Mom's fudge for 14 years. No wonder after pan number 6, I'm all in, but there's more to do!! :) Anywho, I went yesterday and as always had a great time! The other vendors are so remarkably wonderful and fun to see again! Although, I live in the same area, some of these wonderful ladies I just don't see. So here are some of the pictures from yesterday, Enjoy!
Joni's items , so cute!!
Deb's ponchos! Quite a selection!!
Mom's fudge samples that I made, of course!
New vendor with mineral makeup line, fun to watch         the ladies get all beautified! And bath bombs!

week of alone time

So, Gordon is gone for the week with Kurt out west mule deer hunting in Montana! They had really crappy roads driving out there yesterday and better today, but still a long trip! So, I hung around the twin cities area where Kurt lives waiting for the twins to get home from school, so we could go to the local Starbucks for coffee. I had 2 hours to kill before they got home, so I found a mall and Panera Bread to have lunch! I also found a Kirkland store which I hadn't been in one for about 15 years since the one in Eau Claire went out of the that mall. So I spent a few dollars there and found my way back to the house in time for the twins and I to go off! We also got a few extra coffees for Shea and Kora as they weren't home yet when I got there. I said hello to them and said I need to go before the roads get icky with the snow. So, I went home a different way and it was a great road to go home on! I would totally use it again! This shutter was at Kirklands, great gift idea, Starbucks coffee and lunch meal at Panera on the bottom, squash soup and grilled cheese.

This and That

 Mavis Butterfield over on www.onehundreddollarsamonth.com has a time when she has bits and bobs, this and that things she talks about that are weird or funny! So this a take off of her "bits and bobs".
 So, I am part of an group of ladies team with Young Living essential oils. I'm slow on the uptake, so I'm finally reading what they read last spring, Jon Acuff's book called "Start", it's pretty interesting and I'm glad I'm not pressured to get it read by a certain time. It has made me think about my life and the time I have left to change it! Not much, but worth a try! What would I do different?? Not my marriage or my kids, maybe more kids, but I love my kids. But as far as a job, I would love to have a coffee shop with books. Or I would love to rock newborns in the hospital, but where I live, they don't deliver babies here anymore, bummer!!
What would you do different?? Would you be married or single, have no kids, or a bunch of children?? Would you work or stay home??   Go back to school or write a book ?? These are questions I never asked myself, I just wanted to be married to Gordon and have a few babies. which I did, I volunteered at school and women's groups, painted, quilted, crafted and worked many jobs. My most fun job was being a wife and mom, creating and cooking meals, feeding people and reading books! So, how do I make a job out of that mix or what?? Help me!!!
So, Gordon and I ran, literally, to Duluth today. I got 20 minutes in TJ Maxx and saw this carry on
     How cute is this!!!! If I was traveling, I would snatch that up in a heart beat and make a statement! Blessings!!
