A Little More Gingerbread....

I stitched for as long as I could keep my eyes open last night. I'm really enjoying this piece. It's so cute and whimsical.

I finally finished listening to "A Breath of Snow and Ashes" by Diana Gabaldon. It was so good, and I can't wait for the next one to come out! I went to the library and picked up a few more. I'm now listening to "Sweetwater Creek" by Anne River Siddons. I'm almost finished. I picked it because it's about a girl who lives on a marshy creek by Charleston. It makes me want to go back to the apartment and sit on the dock with sun in my face and the wind blowing through the marsh listening to the fish jumping out of the creek. It's really is beautiful there. It's beautiful here too, just different.

Anyway, Thanksgiving is tomorrow and I'm looking forward to the smells of turkey roasting and pies baking. :) I'm always interested in family traditions. Do you do something different or special for Thanksgiving? We don't really - here's our usual menu...

Turkey (of course)
Mashed Potatoes with lots of butter and milk
Sweet Potatoes with marshmallows
Green bean casserole (made from the soup can recipe, which calls for soy sauce - adds a little something to it)
Cranberry sauce (from the can - my husband about gagged when someone brought the real stuff last year)
dinner rolls
Pumpkin Pie (my mom always gets Mrs. Smiths) :)
Apple Pie (for my brother)

Well, that's it and my stomach is growling! Can't wait for tomorrow!

Write later!

  10. Gingerbread Cottage is coming along nicely!

    I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is not something we celebrated in Australia, so it's only been the past 15 years that I've celebrated it. I've never hosted it myself - we either go to my MIL's place (in Indiana), or my husband's aunt's place (in Michigan).

  11. Love your wee Gingerbread house its adorable.
    Hope you had a great thanksgiving.
