The men are cooking

Thursday, November 22, 2012

It almost doesn't feel real, but this year my Thanksgiving meal is being prepared by my husband and middle son. Thankfully, they are both very good cooks and I'm sure this meal with be more than wonderful. We are having the basic turkey, but our stuffing will have our homemade pork and apple sausage added to it. I will probably make that with the help of my husband since I can't be on my feet for too long because I had foot surgery less than a week ago. My boys don't always come for Thanksgiving anymore with other families to see, but this year they will be with us and for that I am Thankful. I am also thankful that I have someone else to do most of the cooking since I'm restricted with the foot.

The foot is healing well and the one thing the doctor insists is that I don't overdo it and so I won't. I want all these foot issues behind me so I can take walks again. My goal is to rest through the weekend too. I'll have to cyber shop!

I hope everyone has a very Thankful day - I know I am thankful for many things.

Carnegie Hall

Saturday, October 27, 2012

There's one side of my family that is very musically talented. They have it in their blood. My cousin teaches music and has been given the opportunity to take 25 students to Carnegie Hall to perform in a Christmas musical with Jane Seymore.

She has wanted one of my blankets so this gave me the perfect chance to make the one I had been thinking about doing since seeing this pattern. I wasn't sure it would be bright enough with the black background, but those colors of the notes are enough with the gold backing. Black and gold were our high school colors and so the theme was perfect. I really like the way this one turned out too.

Horses

Friday, October 12, 2012

I loved the colors of the horses on this one. I made it for someone who volunteers at Cloud 9, which is a place that uses horses for therapy with disabled children. My blankets usually have a meaning behind them to match the person I give them too. Someone told me I was good at matching them to the person.

    Yes, autumn is certainly here. In west central NH, the colors have pretty much faded; the leaves are falling quickly, especially with the rainy weather; occasionally we've had the cool, crisp day.

An early start to the weekend!

Thursday, September 27, 2012

Yesterday was hubby's birthday and I had to work which wasn't all bad since there were a couple of technical issues and it is good to be needed at work during our uncertain times.

So today I'm leaving work half a day since the sun is shining and hubby is still home. We are going to relax on the back porch this afternoon and cook some steaks. I hope you all enjoy your day and weekend ahead.

I will leave you with this quote:
"Somewhere ages and ages hence, two roads diverged in a wood, and I - I took the one less traveled by…and that has made all the difference” – Robert Frost
