                           HAPPY THANKSGIVING

This year is so much better for me then the last year was. So I am very thankful.  I am thankful for family and the family that will be together tomorrow.

I pray your day is wonderful.

   I just knew we are kindred spirits.

How could we not be, when we both fell in love with the same cabinet???

I kept looking at the cabinet you posted and thought wow, that could sure be pretty in the right hands.  Well, those hands were your hands and I love how you saved this wonderful cabinet.

Mine, is still in the wood finish, so it took me a second to realize that it is the very same cabinet!

If you would like to see BJ's total transformation of her hutch, you can visit her here
  My cabinet, has the wood finish.  The very same rose.     
 Mine is not as well organized.
So that can be an upcoming project.

                        Do you ever wonder??

Our area was settled by homesteaders.  They left a few reminders that they were here.

 They left the fields, that are still farmed today by the ancestors. Homes, and barns , that once were full of life.

Homes sit empty but what story could they tell?  Did the family gather on Thanksgiving?  Were babies born here? Did they put up a tree and have Goose for Christmas dinner?  Were the times here, happy times?
 The old school is silent now, accept for when the wind blows through the missing windows.  what was the teacher like?  Was she one of the young girls that grew up in this area?  Did they use the school for church?  Was this the gathering spot for the socials?

Yes, I have many questions.  If you stand there, and listen you can hear the sounds of the past.  You can almost see the families that put in so much work to tame a wild land.

Strange that I would love November so much, since it is usually the month we get our first snow fall.  
It is also family month, we all gather as much as time and space allows to celebrate and give thanks for being a family.
This year will be a little sadder as one family will not be able to make the celebration.  Of coarse we are the ones choosing to live on the 'other' side of the state and travel to get here involves a pass  covered in snow.
Still, we will miss them.  So here we go---count down to Christmas.

                       My Test flight

 I have to practice a bit more before the big night. My test flight didn't go very well, but. I am back and ready to get going with projects.  Have cooking to do, and of coarse more decorating.  
So, sorry for going missing.

                       Learning to love it

Thank you to all the fall lovers, that have shared such beautiful fall stories.  I am seeing fall from a different view.
I have always seen fall, as the entry to winter.  I wasn't stopping to see how beautiful the colors are, how the wonderful cool air invites you to sit a bit outside and smell the fresh cool air.

So I tried my hand at some decorating:

                   I dressed a pumpkin

                       I added fall flowers

                                    Added some fall decorating
                                 To the hutch

Thank you friends, for sharing how pretty fall can be.

                              This can't be right

Walked into Lowe's and what do I spot??  that's right!  I spotted a holiday called Halloween which does not come for months yet.  Many months!  
To add to the insult, it was a 100 degree day.   I was just so thankful I did not spot a Christmas tree, that would have pushed me over the edge.
                                                    Those little guys are kind of cute.
