Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving....tomorrow! The weather outside, today, is frightful. Awful wind, rain and they are predicting snow for later. We shall see about that one. I'm wishing it was summer, or at least remembering my youth in sunny South Florida. I do not like ice and snow!!

This new computer is working nicely, and it is so easy to post on this blog now. I've only had an "oops" or two while trying to learn a whole new way of doing things.

A lot of people around this area put up their Christmas trees on Thanksgiving. It is very common to see SUV's coming down the mountain with a trussed-up tree tied on top of the vehicle.   We have always put our old artificial tree  up on the 2nd week in Dec., but ever since we brought Earl Grey into the house, we have not decorated much. Last year I put out NOTHING at all!! Earl Grey is very rowdy, and I hate to think of what he would do to our precious old ornaments and stuff. I'm still debating about this year.  He is three years old now, but still as destructive as ever. Putting things "up higher" is not an option, as he climbs quite well .( By the way, the photo is one I gleaned from the Internet.) My all-time favorite Christmas movie is "Santa Claus. The Movie (1984), how about you?

Be happy...enjoy your blessings, and God Bless!!

This is a test...only a test!

I have a new computer. It is a desk-top kind this time, and I am having to learn things all over again! My son told me that the old laptop was about to become obsolete and that the purchase is necessary.  Sure gives new meaning to "can't teach a old dog (or cat?) new tricks"!  At least there is no "error on page" message now and I can easily find a photo from the list and post it! Now if I'd just LIKE to take photos that would be helpful.......maybe a "selfie", eh? (not a chance!)   Have a good day, God Bless!

Bear's Sweater

All the sweater patterns that I found did not fit the Build-a-bear workshop bears very well. By the way, I was able to find several bears like that at the Goodwill Store. So after seeing the "World Vision" kids sweater I tinkered with that pattern, and came up with one for my bears! If anyone is interested, I'll share the specifics with you. I just love the way this came out!  Photo taken by my son.

I'm entitled to one mistake, eh??

I had thought about it a long son advised me not to, but with his assistance, last Monday I "killed" this blog.  The rest of the day I went into mourning. It was like the death of a friend.  All day yesterday, I thought "Gee, that would make a great photo for my blog, etc, etc." Too bad I hate taking pictures, eh? Well, you get the message, and I'm back. Who knows if I've done the right thing. I enjoy looking at other peoples blogs (especially those related the quilting).  Now if I could only figure out why I get this stupid "Error on page" message. I've got a lot to learn!
