Hello and welcome to my blog. I have been on a blog break for a couple weeks, so to those who are returning, welcome back. My spider bite is still not completely healed, but the radiating pain has subsided.
I am joining other bloggers in posting Daybook entries. Click the link to see what other bloggers are up to.
☕️For Today… Monday, November 30, 2015
☕️Outside my window… It’s still dark and according to the weather report, snow is on the way. I’m pretty sure I heard the announcer begin the news with “Yikes!” Or . . . maybe that was me.
☕️I am thinking… I’m thinking about my recent change in status from “Legal Guardian” to “just Gram.” GN turned 18!
☕️I am thankful… For my car, de$pite having to recently replace the rear differential. Yike$! I almo$t called Budwei$er to a$k them if I could borrow one of their Clyde$dale$ for a while.
☕️I am going… I am going to start my Christmas decorating in our traditional way . . . with a trip to the cemetery. GN gives her mother’s grave the first decoration.
☕️I am reading… LOST AND FOUND, STORIES OF CHRISTMAS by Reverend Wendell E. Mettey. Mettey is a Baptist minister and this book is a collection of stories for his congregations.
☕️In my garden… I am trying a new tactic this winter to see if I can prevent the lawn service snow plow from wrecking the corner of my garden next to the driveway. Right behind that large pot is a miniature lilac bush that gets abused by the plow blade every year. The poles to which I tied my bright orange plastic grid are metal!
☕️In my kitchen… I had a bean-a-thon! I made batch of Turkey Bean Salsa Soup and then a batch of Turkey, Bean, ‘n Cheese Burritos. Below is a pic of the first batch of burritos. I wrap them for freezing.
☕️A favorite quote for today…
Change the wool socks, change the knitted afghan, change positions on the couch, repeat!
But . . . I did have to go to the hardware store on Saturday for an item needed in a home repair on my to-do list. I spotted something I thought might come in handy for an
avid knitter a deserving Gram a former legal guardian for me! Did you know that the hardware store sells knitting carts? Yep! And they had a Black Friday discount on Saturday for the cart pictured below. No crowds either! I bought the Plano Pro Rolling Work Station.
☕️Have you seen this year’s John Lewis Christmas advert… I love it! So does GN. Have a watch by clicking the link. It’s getting a TON of hits. ‘Tis the season! Then after you have viewed the advert, scroll down the page and download the Man on the Moon app. It’s very clever.
