Before we move on to Christmas I wanted to share some pics of Thanksgiving and let you know what has been going on with us.
I couldn’t decide between the different looks. I guess I am constantly changing things so it will be different soon. We are empty nesters now. We had four children, ailing parents, a dog and 3 cats for so many years. Now it is just Craig and I and our cat named Puppy. So we only cook a couple times a week. We are still trying to get used to that. So I can leave the stove board on to look nice for a few days.
some fall favorites~ pumpkin bread
apple cake muffins~
Now we just need to add a few family and friends~ this is my give thanks tree from last year. Old pics of family and friends as well as things we are thankful for.
~ and work on my well dressed bird
And a little of what is going on here~
First thank you all for your concern, thoughts and prayers. I have received so many wonderful emails form friends letting me know that they are thinking of me or praying. I so appreciate all of the caring friends that I have made here. My husband Craig has been struggling with pneumonia. He just wasn’t getting enough rest and it was just wiping him out. We are still praying it isn’t anything more. He needs to have a follow up test to be sure it is gone( it isn’t totally gone yet). So with that being said, he missed some time from work, so he was "let go" from his job. They said he missed too much time and they want him to get better.. His Dr was only in on Monday , and his day off was Tuesday. They wouldn't switch days or let him use his vacation time for dr visits. He was also so stressed with that job. He worked from 8:30 - 8 everyday. He had no time to do any regular things, or have dinner at a reasonable hour. Hopefully he will be able to collect unemployment, they said he was re-hirable after he was better. You know how those things go. Well hopefully business will pick up and we can make a little that way to survive. One day at a time. If you know of any one that would be interested in our creations please send them our way. Just in time for Christmas.
