My plan is to start decorating with the white lights, as I bought a few poinsettias today. That's as festive as we get, although I do have a Santa, or two, who may make an appearance. Today we were 35 degrees for our high and we may be staying on the chilly side all week. Ah, tis winter.
Thanksgiving is a day of memories of T-days past. We are very fortunate to be guest, too. Any friend who cooks for a gang is a blessed friend and she makes Thanksgiving one of the best days of the year. Here's to a wonderful day of bounty for you and yours.
I love shadow selfies. Happy Thanksgiving!
You day sounds so beautiful, so serene, and so full of gratefulness. You are right about being giving thanks everyday for the everydayness of our lives. Your friend has the right attitude!
Hello fresh start comes Wednesday afternoon as soon as the clock strikes 3.

The room must be full of the amazing creative energy. You must have fun with all the whimsy flowing between you and the very talented fingers flying.
The clouds usually do a better job of forecasting the weather than the meteorologists do. I love reading the clouds. Our winter weather decided to go north and we sit high and dry. I hope you're first taste of winter wasn't too dramatic.

What you did may not have been on a planned list but you certainly made the most of the day. You were very productive for your off day.

Oh yes, the cats have their number. It must be dinner time! The look like a group of cool cats!

Beautiful! A week ago we still had roses, but sadly, they are all gone. Have an enjoyable day!
Unless I am just too awake, I stay in bed, think through my day, start planning a sweater and eventually I'm back to sleep. If my brain is too busy I'll read. Hope you have a restful night tonight!

A very Happy Birthday to you! Love the moment by moment chronicling of your day. Thank you for sharing it with us!
What a sweet little face. Was he enchanted by a sound he'd never before? Maybe it will be a quintessential moment and he'll become a sax player. I'm looking forward to hearing Norm play!
Your Saturday sounds peaceful and , despite the noise start to the day. Peace for Paris, indeed.

The way you tell the story with your quilt, starting with Honor's name (your name), and unfolding each chapter through a quilt block is truly inspired. The win was well deserved!

Going through childhood photographs brings back complicated feelings and memories. We were either very afraid of the unknown or completely oblivious to the dangers. Thank you for sharing your photograph and the memories seeing it brought back.

The house is charming and I love the cat sitting on the wall. We do not have a lottery in Utah and that's just fine with me. So glad you won when it really mattered.
A rainbow catcher would be wonderful to have in my kitchen as the sun comes in the window in winter. Thank you for reminding me to look for more rainbows in my life. Rainbows must be all around me!

You remind me I should be finding things in my week to be grateful for instead of worrying about my very few problems. (I enjoy the sax, too, but I really am a lover of the trumpet.)
I am the odd one out as I do not plan my day other than making mental notes of about things I need to do. Journalling is a hobby/habit I haven't taken up, but I have thought about it.
I know next to nothing about quilting, even though many friends are quilters. I had to look up the Baltimore Album Quilt and enjoyed looking at the variety of designs. Your quilt is going to be stunning in your color choices.
How lovely to be able to walk to a favorite spot, to sit and watch the world around you, and to find joy in every moment. All of October was a treat for us. November has decided to let us know how cold winter will be.
Thank you for sharing the fabric in its true state. I love all the little details of the snowflakes and the stripes. We keep things simple for the Holidays as we have no family near by. I know I'll be hanging lights!
You have the beginnings of some great stories, maybe even an autobiography.
Posting first thing in the morning is a lovely time to gather thoughts, although I work on a post throughout the day as I am in front of a computer You are very disciplined and I fly too much by the seat of my pants. I tend to get stuck in ruts and not venture far. I'm admire your drive and desire to learn.
