A Little Of This And That

It has been a few days since our last visit so I thought I better check in.  This post contains a little bit of everything so hold onto your hat!

First Thanksgiving decorations.

This is the bathroom shelf.

I had Fall leaves for the mirror but they didn’t stick.

We bought the flowers when we were at Sam’s Club.

A large bouquet at a reasonable price so I couldn’t resist.

Of course beads for the counter tree.

Not the colors I wanted but they work.

The living room window

The dining room window.

Both windows have lighted displays for the evening.

Under make it work this.

I bought an acorn squash to bake.

But when I went to cut it open to clean it out I couldn’t do it.  So I took it, a butcher knife, and a hammer and headed for the cement back porch.   It took a little muscle but I cut it open, cleaned it out, and baked it in the oven.  It takes a little engineering to get over the hard part.

I started a gift for Christmas and have had no luck with it.

I have ended up with this on the kitchen table several times

But by golly I’m going to keep trying until I have something to show for it.

My Brandy got a shot today that was long overdue.  When I asked why the delay they told me when they changed over to a new system it got lost in the shuffle.  You got to love them computers don’t you!

Well my younger son will be up this weekend to help me clean up a few things (computer wise) and visit with us.

I got my first set of flannel sheets a couple of days ago and I love them even if the are blush pink!  I’m expecting a second set in the next couple of days ( these are a print) so then I can change one set  while I wash the other.

My friend Inez brought me a bag of material and patterns to the Knit Night meeting that Pammie hosts on Tuesday.

I don’t know when I’ll get started using it but I know I’m going to have fun.

While Cindy has returned to a normal work schedule so I’m seeing alot more of her and I love it.

Well I guess I should go pick up the I crochet hook and attempt my project again.

Have a great rest of the week and do something good for yourself.
