Happy Thanksgiving

Yesterday was warm and beautiful, we got the leaves all taken care of and yard was looking great, So snow if you must!

We are tuck safely inside watching football (yes I like it)
It was a weekend we were not committed to going anywhere or doing anything. It was heaven! I hit a church sale and breakfast out with my sweet friend ahhhh...

This is a very bad picture of my front door. Yesterday was so nice
I hit the woods for some mixed greens and filled my 1.00 basket from last year.
I saved the bow, frosty twigs, and red berries from last year so free!

My sweet friend and I also got to hit the thrift this week.
I found four more on at dusk and off at dawn window candles.
I now have enough for the house.  I Love them and four for 2.00 is a deal. Last year I found them for 1.00 a piece! I think they sell for 10.00 a piece.

This week was the gathering of my women's group.
It was our annual Thanksgiving. The host cooks the turkey and the rest of us bring the fixings. It is such a wonderful group of women.
When David was so sick they all descended on my house cutting back gardens, raking, and stacking wood. My daughter was here when they came, she was so amazed at how wonderful they were. 
We have been meeting 13 years. We try monthly but it doesn't always happen. We celebrate each other which is such a joy.
Each time we meet we put a few bucks in the thankful basket and tell what we are thankful for. At the end of the year the money is donated to a worthy cause.
I think there were 5 of us missing so a large group.
I hope your Thanksgiving is wonderful!
Ours is very quiet, we treat ourselves to Lobster.
We are expecting company for the weekend though so it will all be a blur from here to Christmas.

What a wonderful women's group!!! You are so lucky to be part of it.
We went from 75* on Friday to me driving in near white out conditions on Saturday. Welcome to Ohio :(
Happy Thanksgiving.

We didn't get any of the snow just a little rain and lots of cold wind.
I love thrifting, but not too many good things this weekend, probably next weekend after the holiday, that is when more christmas things come in. What a wonderful group and reminds me of our neighborhood where i grew up, all the moms helped each other and were there when someone was sick or in need.
