Thanksgiving Blessings To All

I had to stop in to wish you all a happy and peaceful Thanksgiving, and share two main reasons I've been a bit preoccupied lately...

My new granddaughter Kara, who is one week old today (congratulations Trav, Ashley and Ryan!)...

and my new grandson Tristan, who is three days old today! (Congratulations Jake, Nicole and Anthony!)

I hope to get back on track with my blog and my Etsy Shops after Thanksgiving weekend, as I haven't been very attentive to either for a few weeks. Mom has been helping me refinish furniture... she found a beautiful old pine headboard and footboard for free on the side of the road, and my dear neighbor Carol called me about a free dresser and vanity on the side of the road which my son and his wife picked up for me. I've finished the floors I had been stripping and have gotten most everything back into the two rooms I was working on. Still lots of sorting to do! Mom will come up after Thanksgiving and stitch up some curtains... red homespun in the grandbabies' room and blue for mine! (I can't sew unless I have to!) We finally got the gardens cleaned up and cut back in preparation  for winter's impending snows, and I've been trying to get my workspace in order. The barn is clean, and I'm waiting for the first real snowfall, but the weather has been unseasonably warm for that to happen!
Well, there's lots to be done tomorrow, so I'm off to bed! May you have a lovely weekend!
