Thanksgiving Day

Dear Friends,

Yesterday was full of things to be thankful for: healthy, happy children; food; sweet friendship; music; fall leaves and the promise of a garden; freedom.

After a family dinner, Jason and I went to help a friend who was having trouble with her tree lights! This 11-foot tree took 10 strands of lights, so no wonder she was frustrated. While she and I visited, Jason traced every strand and found the problem! What a pretty tree.

Walking billboard for the shop. That’s me. Handmade bracelets and old keys on leather cord, lacy this, lacy that; but I am not complaining. I have always loved clothes, something I came by honest. Both my grandmothers loved clothes and pretty things. They were very different in their style, but they did have a love of clothing in common. With this, I will close. Jason and I are pulling his tree out of the attic tonight. It will be fun to decorate and relax this evening. Hopefully there will be time left over to practice our music some.

Enjoy this day!

Love this page torn from a gardening magazine. On the to-do list.

I have been working with mosaics again; just a little bit. My first attempt at getting back into it resulted in a shallow birdbath. It’s pretty but rough. It holds not enough water, so I soon will build up the sides a bit more. There is a lot of clay in the soil here, so it was very hard to dig out a place in the ground for a mold. I will have to do better next time!

Enjoy this day!
