Pumpkin pie and coffee, anyone?
Thanksgiving is almost here, and I'm still trying to recuperate from a nasty stomach bug I had over the weekend.... meanwhile, Belle is in intensive care (otherwise known as the laundry room) with symptoms of being egg-bound, so I've spent the day nursing her back to health.
She seems to be really enjoying the extra attention and the heat lamp however, and I'm beginning to wonder if I'm being suckered at a time when I could use a little down time myself.
Oh, well... it wouldn't be the first time I've let that happen.
It's hard to believe Christmas is just a little over a month away- I plan on putting up my decorations on Friday and Saturday. I'm a little funny about putting them up too soon; I like to celebrate and enjoy one Holiday at a time before making plans for the next one.
Unfortunately, I didn't remember to put my Thanksgiving place mats out until this past weekend- I think they're so cute and they always make me smile.
In the kitchen, I have a batch of venison jerky in the dehydrator... even though I know my stomach couldn't handle it right now, it's making the house smell so good I'm almost tempted to sample it.
Since I may not post again until the weekend, I want to say how thankful I am for my home and health, family and faith, and friends... and how blessed I am to have so many online friends- each of you have made my day at one time or another, whether by your sweet comments, or by reading your wonderful blogs. You all have given me a smile on a lonely day, a tear to touch my heart, a laugh when I needed it the most, and for that I am so grateful.
From my home to yours- Happy Thanksgiving!
