Got a Match?


I'm just checking in to say Hi! I haven't fallen off the face of the earth although, that might be a great feeling right now. They're playing jingle bells and dashing through the snow and next week is Chris....Uh....Thanksgiving...I think. I'm about to set off the bomb in front of me. Somehow the bloggy mojo is gone. It's that time when I can't think of anything that would interest anyone and I've got nothing to show. I did get out the machine and work on something today but I'll take pics tomorrow as this day is nearly over. Trying not to listen to the news-it's a mess out there.
Roger is taking off a week so we will have some nice time together and we are going to our friends house for the annual Thanksgiving feast. The day after that it will be Christmas.
BIL Bob is back from his trip to the Caribbean and in one fell swoop every leaf on every tree came down with a whoosh. I'm heading back to the sewing machine since I have the day off from cooking. Maybe I can get a couple more things done. We watched Kung Foo Panda yesterday afternoon and had a laugh. Lots of mail at the Food Pantry to answer. This is our really busy time. Everyone donates something from the kids in school classes to the civic groups around town and many businesses. Lots of work for me but it's for a very good cause. We have many more families this year. No surprise there.
I made Lydia's chicken & eggplant with basil and fresh mozzarella last night for dinner. I recommend it. Lots of prep work but worth it I think. The guys seemed to like it very much. Not a diet meal but you have to go off the reservation sometimes.
I really hate having my picture taken but the guys snapped this one a while back. Please to ignore my many chins and sloppy outfit. I think I was cooking and cleaning that day.
Talk to you soon and please remember that the camera adds thirty-five pounds.

I am happy to read your witty words. You always have something worth reading, even when it is not so cheery. I love the photo. What double chin? Hope you have a very lovely Turkey Day.

We are seeing many more at our pantry, too. They have started serving a hot lunch once a week. I think this may grow into an every day need.

*ahhhhh* Now really you wouldn't harm yourself or that darling little ducky, now would you?
I'm just beside myself at how quickly Thanksgiving has come upon us. As much as I have anticipated the holidays this year . . . . I'm NOT ready *s*
Enjoy your week with Hubby . . . go do something fun - you'll find your blogging mojo out there - I just know it.

No matter what you find to say or to share, I always find your posts interesting, Dee! I think that sometimes we think to ourselves that we have to entertain the multitudes. But really...we're all just normal folks with normal thoughts, right? We're all just friends.

It's refreshing to hear that folks are so willing to give...yet so sad that there is so much more need to go along with the giving. This has been quite the year, hasn't it.

Happy Thanksgiving to you!

We've all been there, Dee. Hope you keep posting; it's always enjoyable to read what you say. Enjoy your Thanksgiving.

You must have a better camera than me. Mine adds 50. LOL! Hope the Thanksgiving Holidays bring you good cheer.

I think it's great to see real people in real actual up to date pictures on blogs! Really.

Terry said...

You look great--like someone I would love to sit down with for a long chat and a lot of laughs! I think this is the first picture I have seen of you. I can match you chin for chin.

I love your local pictures. They are not 'local' to me and very beautiful! That chicken, eggplant, basil and mozzarella sounds delish. All my favourite ingredients in one dish. I will soon be on my summer break and can't wait to get to my sewing machine too to finish off the binding on two quilts. And then I can start cutting again. Will take a look at that blog regarding selvages.Have a good day!
