Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!





I hope everyone has a very Happy Thanksgiving!  If you are traveling, be safe.  If you are having dinner with your loved ones and/or friends, enjoy yourself.  Just remember to give thanks for everything you have in this life. 

I will be spending a wonderful Thanksgiving with our daughter, Jenny, her husband, Kevin and the grandboys!  I am very thankful for that.  I will be cooking and baking.  Kevin is making the green beans and they are bringing rolls too.  I can't wait to enjoy all the lovely cooking smells, the turkey roasting in the oven, cinnamon, spices, apple pie and pumpkin pie!  I just love it!!  Jenny and her family are coming early enough to watch the parade on TV with John and I. 

John and I have alot to be thankful for!  It is always nice to take a day to reflect on what we have and how thankful we are for what we have.  You can never be too thankful!

Enjoy your day no matter how you are spending it!!!

The Weekend

I had a really great weekend.  Friday night John and I tried a new BBQ place.  While the Pulled Pork and fixings were good, the place was way over priced and the BBQ was only slightly warm. 

Saturday, we got up later than normal.  We made a nice breakfast together.  Then we headed on out to do a major grocery shopping.  Since I had gone to Aldi's headquarters on Friday for work, I decided to go the Aldi's in Indian Trail.  We got alot of groceries for not much $$.  We then proceeded to Harris Teeter to get just a few things.  We paid double what we had paid at Aldi's and we got only about 1/4 of the groceries we got at Aldi's.  We headed home and put everything away.  I then proceeded to wash all the wood floors in the house!  They look marvelous!!

Here are some Fall flowers we got at Harris Teeter:


Then John and I had a great dinner.  Scallop and shrimp scampi, rice and salad (the lettuce is from my winter garden).


Then John fixed some firewood in the fire pit.  We watched the full moon come up amongst the pines in the backyard. 


Sunday we had breakfast with Jenny, Kevin and the grandboys!  Love having breakfast with them.  The boys have colds-poor little babies. 

When we came home I blocked the Morticia Shawl I made.  Here it is all blocked.


There are over 1,000 beads on the shawl!!!

Then I made a pan of ziti for one of the guys in our office.  He and his wife just had a baby.  John made chocolate chip cookies.  His favorite!!  Then I knitted for a while.  Then John and I watched TV until bedtime.  What a great day!!





Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
