November??? What the heck?

OK... so I have no clue what happened to October....must have something to do with the time change issue.... maybe they take a month instead of just an hour?? I have no clue.

But it's november now and I have my missing hour (month) back and its time to be getting ready for my annual trek to Pennsylvania over Thanksgiving. It's about a 12 -13 hour drive if the weather is good.... two years ago the weather was NOT good and it turned into a 19 hour drive....

I visit with my family and get to see all the new great nephews and this year I have a new great niece! It's been a long time since I've sewn anything in pink! My youngest niece is 25.... so that's how long! She's in Bahrain this year and it will be her first christmas away from home....

I've been busy sewing and knitting and I have updated the flickr site with some pictures. I have a few more to load before I'll be caught up for this year.

There are a few gifties to make when I get back from my trip.... some lounge pants, ties and cat toys but everything else is all done! I plan to bake some cookies and make some candy topped pretzel sticks this year. Yummmmmmmmmmm

I also got some books called Mug'ems... apparently you make individual packets of stuff... put it in the mug for gifting and the recipient just adds water or an ingredient or two to the cup and has a treat.... I haven't checked them out yet .... I'll do that tonite ..... It sounds like a great gift to me!!

I don't have much to add right now.... I'll do better about keeping up on posting.....and will post again after thanksgiving.

There's a map now that's supposed to update itself to show who's been visiting... we'll see how that goes. If you are reading this and don't see a map...then you'll know it sucked and I got rid of it!

Have a great Turkey Day......
