Yesterday Twanya at a neighboring store went to the feed store and got rectangular bales of hay for us to use and this made some difference in the spirit of things. I have to say it sure looks like Fall around here.
To the left is a page from the November Country Living. The leaf looks so crisp I can almost touch it.
I love this page from the current Martha Stewart Living November issue. Quiet and elegant yet saying it all!!!!
Do we remember to give thanks? Each Thanksgiving when my entire family comes together at our house, the
kids are anxious to eat but we take time to reflect on the blessings we have received through the year. And to give thanks back to our Creator.
And last but not least of the November magazines is, Romantic Homes. Their cover is beautiful and colorful. There are gorgeous recipes inside.
My favorite time of the year, right after Christmas is soon coming when my family will be home together again. I look forward to cooking all the night before and rushing around to make sure it is as perfect as I can make it for them.
My poor husband James is a helper. He will do anything I assign him.
He will wash up dishes, mop the floor or clean toilets. He alleges that I do not ever really clean house but once a year, prior to Thanksgiving.
I want to make the day the best I can and make the best memories for all of us, children and adults.
When I am past and the kids and their own kids gather for Thanksgiving,
I want to hear from Heaven, remember when Mom did this and that.
That would be a reward only a Mother could understand.
Happy Thanksgiving to all,
Old cookbooks below from the store so no matter whether you use your grandma's recipes or some you gather from magazines or friends, cook cook cook.
