Good for you GmaKitty. Handmade are always the best gifts.

Had a wondeful Thanksgiving here with DS and DIL home. Had ouer meal on Friday so more of us could gather. I had 10 mouths to feed but everyone pitched in and the meal went very well. Also got to meet my great niece. She's only one month old and adorable, of course. Got to spend some time baby holding- that's the best.

DS 1&2 worked on getting the venison made into sausage and brats so that will be yummy this winter. Quite a lot of cleanup though. So the rest of the day is rest catch up time.

Good Morning

I hope you are well &

had a Good Black Friday

even if it was doing nothing

& stayed at home with no Shopping

me I didn't buy anything but here in

the UK Black Friday is not like it is

in the USA I did look to see if it was

worth ordering the new fridge & freezer

but for discount wasn't worth doing this

side of Christmas it be the same price or

less in the Christmas Sales

Greg wants to pop out to go to a

Supermarket to see if we can get a bottle

of wine that was mention on a cooking

program so we go & see if we can get it so

we have the wine for our Christmas dinner

I finished the socks nothing different these

are just denim blue i will take a photo of

them later & put on my blog soon

Well wishing you a Blessed day & Week-end

Hugs Janice

Comment by Janice Aitkens on Thursday

Good Morning

Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate

& for us who don't we can still give thanks

for what we have i rather like the idea

of having a special day to give thanks

but i give thanks each day so i guess

it be the holiday i would enjoy lol

Greg done the roof well he wants to put

more screws in it but he uses screw caps

to cover the screw & he ran out of them

so have to get some more this morning

I am plodding along well with the socks

am on the home straight or should i

just say the foot lol

Greg is going back down to Luton on

Monday to give his DBIL a hand with the

decorating of his brother's place so

will have peace & quiet on my own

again i have enough to do i want to

do some sewing plus i will be able

to get the Christmas tree out & sort

out some decorations to put out

also i get to watch more Christmas movies lol

Well i hope you will all have a

wonderful day take care

Hugs Janice
