Getting ready for the holiday season

Well, I brought October to a close with as much Fall harvest as I had time for.  Cabbage, ham, cornbread and pumpkin cake.  Now it's time to get ready for Thankgiving.  My second favorite holiday of the year.  I used to love November because it was my birthday month, but now I just love it for all the feelings it brings to mind.  I love traditions, though, I'm not good at getting my little family to join anything, but the food part.  What traditions do you hold near?  Do the memories make you laugh or just sit and wonder.  I'd love to know what you do!

I'm having so much fun blogging, I want to do it all.  I just can't figure out how to add a button".  You have all been so encouraging and helpful.  I think I got the picture thing, just needs alittle tweeking.

I think I got it

I got my first follower and tried to enter some giveaways.  There is so much vintage out there, I feel inadequate.  If you are reading this and see where I could do things better or different let me know.  I'm still trying to master the picture thing and don't have a clue about the" button thing" I keep seeing.

What I wouldn't give...

I teach all week so weekends come and go very quickly.  I would love to be the woman who can work all day, then come home and cheerily cook and clean before bedtime.  Oh, well, I do cook and clean and I am cheery, but not all three at the same time.  After a day with a room full of 5 yr. olds I do good to come home and get one of these done before bedtime.  Any suggestions?

my new best friend

I have always loved camping.  My husband of 15 yrs. used that to convince me to marry him, but alas, he likes staying home more than anything.  So here I am turning 50 and look what he finds me.  now I can do what I've always wanted.  All I have to do is practice diving with it and backing it up.  If anyone else loves camping let me know and we'll set out on an adventure.

Just planted some greens in the herb garden.  My herbs have all dried up with the drought.  Now I guess I need to start watering in my spare time.  Hmm, when is that?

Autumn has Fallen

It's official for me!  With me picking pecans for something tasty and Randy breaking ground for winter grass, Fall  has finally showed up.  The cooler weather is so nice.  Now all we need is a good rain to help everything grow.

hello out there

Am I the only woman around who lives in a mobile home, but longs for an old fashioned house with a picket fence?  Surely there is someone else who loves the country life, but has to go to work all day and leave it all behind.
