It's My Favorite Time of the Year...

Yes, it's UP...but the lights are off until after lunch, on Thanksgiving Day.  It's smaller as well.  We gave our 7 1/2footer to our granddaughter, Samantha.  I wanted something a bit smaller so Larry got on the internet and picked one out and ordered it!  Haystix or Haysticks or something like that dot com.  Just type in bing or google search, Christmas trees.


November 17th was Larry's mom's birthday.  Her 90th.   Larry handing over home made chicken soup.

The birthday girl...She said, "I sure do need to get to the beauty shop..."  Hahaa...yep, bless her heart.

I made a whole chicken in the Instant Pot (Amazon sells them as well as Instant Pot. ) Love it!

I promise this REALLY happened!  Nice try bud!  What an IDIOT!



Well, thought I'd say a FEW words to let you know  there hasn't been ANY bites or falls lately and that's a Good Thing!  I really was getting sick of it all...
Yesterday was Larry's mom's birthday so we went visiting.  Ninety!  Amazing...but she is now really dependent on Larry's dad who is 94...Both are hard headed and won't accept help easily but we keep trying.
Yes, we put up our tree early...first time EVER in 45 years of marriage.  And if you asked why...I couldn't say.  Nostalgia?  Who knows.  We just did it.  Lights off until after lunch Thanksgiving though...it's just ready to go.
Well, I'll keep this short.  Just checking in...Have a sweet and peaceful day!
