Happy Thanksgiving 2017

Happy Thanksgiving to all!
Yesterday Norman and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary!
God is so good!
We are so greatful for the 97 years my MIL Ruth got to live.  Though she is not physically here this day she is remembered always, as are all who have passed on.
We are getting ready for Advent a bit later, but will celebrate today remembering all we have to be greatful for!  For all the trials and tribulations we endure, we are so very blessed!
To God be the glory! Great things He has done!
God bless us every one!

November 1, 2017

My dear hubby and I went to see William Shatner in Branson at the Welk Resort Theatre last Friday evening.  Mister Shatner puts on a very entertaining show and is one of the best storytellers we have.
I continue to knit up some nine patch blankets and will soon be working up some log cabin type blankets as well with a preemie Christmas hat or two thrown into the mix. These are for our local Newborns In Need.
There was a pretty lavender blanket I knit up about ten years ago (!) that was lacy and I began one in pink this time and is a WIP as well.
There are buttons and yarn ready for knitting up some burial buntings later on.
In between knitting I am reading "Up Till Now", and "Shatner Rules".
I am so thankful for my dear husband who supports me in my charity knitting and for charities like Newborns In Need and Relief Share. We also support our local Ronald McDonald Houses. In this country especially, we have much to be thankful for!
I am thankful for each day given to me that I get to be with my family and friends!
