Here It Is Once Again

Yep, the anniversary of the day of my birth is here again. For some reason, in my mind I have aged 2 years instead of one. Could it be because I feel like I was hit by a bus overnight? I was up late again last night/this morning packing and finishing a fringed bracelet. I have tried for several nights to finish the bracelet as I only had 5 fringe branches to add and I kept falling asleep before I could get it finished. I can only imagine how humorous it would have been to watch me trying to stab seed beads with my needle, and not being able to focus my eyes to do it. Thank heavens we are taking off today for a few days with Chris's family near North Platte for Thanksgiving. The whole family converges there for eating/visiting/eating/playing dominoes/eating/hiking/eating...oh did I mention eating? Usually we finish cleaning up from one meal, only to start working on the next one. Our contribution this year includes baked mac and cheese (very simple and yummy), rhubarb pie (made by Village Pie Maker from Eustis, NE), and spiced hot cider. The cider is also easy, we use a large jug of apple cider and a large jug of cranberry juice, mulling spices from Penzey's spice company (WONDERFUL spices), and a whole orange sliced horizontally and floated in the cider/juice. Put it in a crock pot, and tadah!, spiced cider! I wish you all a very peaceful Thanksgiving filled with tons of blessings, and remember if you don't read the label the calories don't count!
