Just popping in!

Good morning,

I have actually made it to my blog two days in a row. LOL I had thought I would be able to piddle today, but Kevin found out he gets paid this afternoon. He wants me to come down and get his check and take it to the bank. He figures the traffic will be less today than Friday. I hope he is right. Since I am only cooking for the two of us, I don't have many preps. Everything will be cooked tomorrow, including the pie. I will cook the turkey in my roaster which will free up the oven.

Since I may just mail this to Carolyn, I thought I'd better get a picture of it. This is a little wall kit that she picked up and asked me to make for her. It is cute, but those tiny little pieces were a pain to work with. (grin)
I hope she will like it. I also wanted to share about a Christmas fabric giveaway that I won from Nola. I love these. She packed it so cute. Thank you, Nola.
Aren't these pretty Christmas fabrics?
This is for Pat. I decided to take a couple of pictures of our sweet potatoes. I weighed this big one and it was just a hair over 2 lbs.
We only planted 6 plants this year and this is the resulting crop.
Pat, hope you enjoy seeing our sweet potatoes. (grin)

I guess that is it for me. I need to get a grocery list ready. I don't really need much. I guess that is a good thing. Right? LOL Everyone remain safe out on the roads this weekend. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Thanks for visiting and please come again.

I know it has been a while. I have been really busy. I may talk about that at another time, but for now I want to update a little. I think I promised to share some more bow tucks bags with you all about a month ago. This isn't a very good picture, but here is the beige/black bag.
Here is the inside.
Then I made a green/pink bag.
We have been busy getting ready for winter. Good thing. It is supposed to be frigid here during Thanksgiving. We dug our sweet potatoes. I sent Kevin to the garden with a feed bucket that holds about 1 1/2 gallons. Since I only planted 6 plants, I figured that would be plenty big enough. Wrong! He heard me come out to take the trash out and yelled that he needed the wheel barrel. I thought he was joking, but he was serious. We got way over a half bushel of sweet potatoes from those 6 plants. Several of them weighed over 2 lbs each and were almost as big around as a soccer ball. I told Kevin that I wasn't sure what I would do with them. One of them is way more than we need for a meal. LOL I guess we will have lots of leftovers. I forgot to take a picture of them. Bad blogger!

November 14th was Noah's 5th birthday. I even forgot to wish him a happy birthday on the blog. We did go to Kansas City on Friday the 12th to celebrate his birthday with him. We told the kids that we must really love them to come to Kansas City on a Friday night, during rush hour, in the pouring down rain, looking for an unfamiliar address. LOL We found them and had a wonderful meal and visit with the kids. Noah is doing so well in school. He is really coming out of his shyness. Izabella is starting to talk up a storm.
You didn't think I would forget to post pictures of our grandbabies did you? LOL
Izzie is getting so big. Hazel says Izzie reminds her of me all the time. Ahhh, now that made this grandma have a proud moment. (grin)

We sure enjoyed playing with our grandbabies.

Tonight was the ending of deer season here in Missouri. I cannot say I am sorry. We have had hunters all around us. I could hear shooting most any time of the day. I was afraid to let Buddy outside without me. He isn't real good about staying out of the road just yet. I am working on it, but he has a way to go. I didn't want him to get hit. We have had lots more traffic than normal during the hunting season.

I am ready to sew the binding down on Bob's quilt. I am half done on the borders of Jeremy's quilt. In the mean time, I have made a little Santa wall hanging for one of our girls. She requested it last year. Now I need to get it to her so she can enjoy it this season. I'll take a picture before I give it to her.

Our Thanksgiving will be very quiet and simple. It will just be Kevin and me. I wish I could have found a smaller turkey, but I guess this will give me lots to put in the freezer. I have been trying to cook less. I still find it hard to just cook for two people after so many years of cooking for 7. LOL I will make a pumpkin pie (instead of 4), fix mashed potatoes and gravy, sweet potatoes, noodles, green beans, rolls, and dressing. This will be a very high carb meal, so I am sure I will sleep all afternoon. LOL

Well, I'd better end here. In case I don't get back to the blog, Happy Thanksgiving! If you plan on doing the black Friday sales (not me) please be careful. Thanks for visiting and please come again. Have a great day!
