Blessings to All


I have so many things to be thankful for and you all are included. Even though I don't get to spend much time at all in blogger lately! Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and leave your lovely comments. They really do mean so much. And thank you for sharing your life with me! Many, many thanks to those wonderful bloggers who put so much time and effort into making tutorials to share with us. And to those generous people who have giveaways, thank you! Most of all, thank you for your friendship and inspiration!

last years bird - my best yet!

My son from another mother is here with his son. So I have three John's in the house and it is confusing at times. They arrived from Las Vegas on Monday evening and are here to hunt until Saturday. I love to see the three generations of these lovely boys together, they are so alike and yet have their own little traits and quirks too. Tomorrow we will cook up a big fat turkey and a ham and our friends Bonnie and Harry will come and eat with us and also my brother in law David. So there will be 7 of us. Perfect! Today I will make Apple Pie and Lemon Meringue Pie from scratch. Bonnie will make home made rolls in the morning and I am going to have a go at making cranberry sauce from fresh cranberries.

Beau

My (aussie) grandson, Beau, is currently in California for a three week school boys soccer tournament. He is 16 and quite the player and hoping to get scouted for a college scholarship. Good luck Beau!



It is raining here now and the temp is just above freezing. I hope the roads aren't icy for John's commute into Albany this morning. Well it's almost 4am now and time for my first coffee.

Blessings for a happy and safe Thanksgiving to all! ooroo for now. x
