Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.... I hope your day is happy and blessed. We have so much to be thankful for and it's not just what we say about our blessings, but how we use them that makes the true meaning of Thanksgiving!

Great Pyrenees Puppy.....

I just had to show you this puppy. It belongs to Lisa and she is taking it to someone this morning. She had it in the house saying her goodbyes. I would cry if I had to let this one go. She has two more. I would take one in a minute if they stayed this size.

We had our first snowfall last night. It just covers the ground but is enough to let you know winter is upon us. I wonder what happened to global warming? It's 20 degrees below normal. Today I will decorate my mantle and maybe my tree. Tis The Season!!!!!

Crocheted Square for my Exchange......

I crocheted this turkey square for my exchange this month. Yesterday I mailed it to Lucille in MO. Usually I can finish one in a short time, but this one took a long time. Each of his feathers were crocheted seperately and then sewed on seperately. But it was fun to make. I found the directions on the internet at Dayna's Crochet.

This is one of my neighbor's house. The sun was glowing just at the top of the trees.
And this is the road going up to Lisa's house. I always have to make a picture there this time of the year. Loree wrote me a poem about this very road. Her website is The poem goes like this..... ~NATURE~
A narrow country road that curves,
Through tall and graceful trees,
Shade from hot rays of brilliant sun,
Provided by their leaves.
It leads to quiet and solitude,
A peaceful place for sure,
Without the noise of city sounds,
That many must endure.
A perfect place, there is no doubt,
Where I can leave behind,
All cobwebs that have settled in,
Far corners of my mind.
I look ahead, down peaceful road,
A slow time in fast world,
At dark and light, and vivid hues,
Like colors that are swirled....
By some great artist, name unknown
Who doesn't look for fame,
Yet we all know that artist well,
For "Nature" is her name!

I SET MY CAR ON FIRE!!!!!!!! At least I have something to talk about today!!! LOL

It's not the car I drive, but it was a good car that I parked about a month ago because the compressor on the A/C died. Yesterday I used the blower and blowed all the leaves off my drive way before it started raining....(it never has rained) They were in a pile at the back of my drive way. I struck a match and stood there and watched them burn until I THOUGHT it was over. That was about 4:00 PM. Last night about 7:00 PM, Gary walked into my bedroom and Bill was in bed. Bill said, (very calmly) I believe your Mom's car is on fire. (I've heard him yell louder than that if he sees a piss ant walk across the floor) Gary looked out the bedroom door and it was blazing BIG! I heard him screaming, "Mom, your car is on fire." I flew down the steps and outside. Gary was out there in his underwear with the water hose. I ran back in the house and called 911 and told him I needed the fire department. She informed me one was on the way, and ask me if anyone was near the car. I told her my son and she said to get him away from it because of the explosion that may occur. I ran back outside and he had already moved away. I thought the fire trucks would never get here, but it was only four minutes until they arrived. I live about two miles from the fire department. I knew in my mind there would be a heavy fine, because I did not have a burn permit. But they did not fine me nor take me to jail...just told me to be more careful. I assured them I would. I gave them the car for a rescue car...where they practice on getting someone out of a wrecked or burning car. I will be glad it's gone and know for certain that I will mail in my donation to that wonderful fire department.

Center Piece....

This piece of wood came out of the center of a tree. It has all kind of strange markings on it, something like a maze. I thought it was worth talking about. That's about the only thing I can think of to talk about this morning. My mind is "almost" totally blank. Maybe tomorrow will be better!

TAKE TIME.......

Take time to take....
the small gifts so hesitatingly offered by a friend.

The proud handmade present from a child.

Take time to listen....
To the old man's too oft - told tale.

To a husband's words of love.

Take time to share....
a moment with a lonely soul.
(for lonliness shared becomes love)

a sorrow with a bereaved friend...
(for sorrow shared becomes comfort)

Take time to touch....
another human
(which means "I care for you and I trust you.")

another life
(for that is what life is all about).

Take time for each other....
for nothing else is that improtant.

Take time to live....
To dance for fun,
To sing for joy,
To paint or sew or create a beautiful gift.

Take time to watch....
The snow swirling outside the window pane,
The flames dancing in the fireplace.

Take time for goodness...
for faltering, fumbling mixed up world is, after all,

Mostly Good!!!!
