Thanksgiving Day 2012


"Give Thanks no matter what..."(1 Thessalonians 5:18)

Dried milkweed from my garden--- long passed the days of green leaves, pink flowers, caterpillars and monarch butterflies.  Just goes to show there's beauty in everything if you look for it.

I will get better in posting updates.  I have been quilting.  I've worked on some Christmas decorations and Christmas gifts.  I always want to post photos. But I leave for work in the dark--- and come home in the evening to the same thing.  So that leaves lunchtime forfeiting food and heading to the woods with the camera. I had one day when not one but BOTH camera batteries were dead.. but if I have to correct my own mistakes, I don't makes them a second time.

So in the interest keeping secrets---

These babies will be half square triangles I made using a new triangle method.

I plan on enjoying family, friends, and food today. I'm hoping to put a needle and thread in my hands some time. The one thing I will count on is appreciating my blessings-- my family, my home, my pups, my job, and my faith.......

Happy Thanksgiving......

Have a wonderful Turkey Day!
I can't imagine leaving for work in the dark and coming home in the dark unless you are work an hour or two and then it would be okay. LOL!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.
Snow coming tonight?
My mom has been in bad health so we are still in Alabama, but we think about the Upper Peninsula often and still watch the real estate ads. There is a beautiful home in Rockland for sale on Hwy 45, which actually begins in Alabama and ends in Michigan.
