Happy Thanksgiving

There is still a bit of a chill in the air this morning, as we didn't get the storm that was predicted for us. The Farmers Almanac said we would have snow the end of this month and the beginning of December but only on the mountain tops around us so far.

The turkey is stuffed and already in the oven for dinner to be about 1 PM today. All the extras are ready to pop in the oven or go on the stove in a few hours, can't wait for the yummy smells to start drifting through the house.

I haven't made very many Christmas gifts as of yet---some will get going in a week or so. I have made one for DGD-Kayona and given to her as I couldn't find a box to put it in. I have had the Smurfett for a least 20 years and thought they would be cute on a fleece blanket---other 2 Gkids will get different characters.
This other one is a Christmas
swap for the LWC luncheon on Wednesday that I am going to miss, everything was hand made except for the candles---yes you see a spider it is an ornament to go on the tree with a story about the spider's webs turning into tinsel. Already had plans to go to the Crayon Challenge swap in Calif., and I get to visit with my Mom and Nanna. I will be traveling by train as I thought we would have snow by now. Then going over the Sierra's I didn't want to have to chain up. To many times I have been just ahead of a bad storm---you never know what the weather will do.
