Happy Thanksgiving!!

Wanted to tell everyone to have a wonderful, blessed Thanksgiving holiday! We decided to break out of the usual routine and host our dinner on Friday night. That way my children/grandchildren can have plenty of time to jump from household to household on Thursday and spend the whole day with me on Friday! ha ha!!! There is a method to my madness! :) If it works out, it will become a permanent plan idea.

Take a lookie at my recent Craig's List purchase! I've been needing a kitchen island and wanting one for so long!  With the holidays coming, I need more counter space!  This little baby is fitted with two deep shelves, which you can see I've already filled with items that used to sit up on top of the cabinets.  I had to use a chair to reach them!  No more of that! :)  It also has two drawers, one on each side, and the end flips up to make an even bigger surface to work on!  And the best part?  $40!  Yea, me!!!

If you haven't used Craig's List in your area, you should definately check it out. I must admit I'd been searching 3 months for this item and found plenty but most I couldn't afford or were sold by the time I called or emailed.  So patience is a virtue with Craig's List!

Anyway...everyone have a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoy time with your loved ones.  I am so thankful for all of you who read my mindless ramblings!

Your comment on "If you look for me at Christmas" on Janie's blog really touched me, and I hope you will be feeling the sweet warm spirit of the season in all its true meanings. She's a really special friend, and seems to say just the right thing every time.

My Dad would have been Ninety yesterday, and it's hard to believe they're not going to be at our own table again.

Thinking of you and wishing you well,
