I appreciate all the kind thoughts and sentiments this week after our loss of Eddie. It was a very busy week, getting ready for Thanksgiving and family and the last craft fair of the year. It helped to have so much to look forward to that I couldn't dwell on the recent events.
Cindie found this for me online and sent me the link. I immediately ordered it - a Conair braid twister. What a difference the right piece of equipment makes! I found it best to sit at the counter and weight the scarf.
Thanksgiving was wonderful this year. We've had a 20 year tradition of spending it with DIL Missy's parents, Marv and Julie. They began inviting DS Matty and me, back when I was married to a casino dealer who liked to work the holidays for the extra money. Over the years the attendance has varied and changed. Julie's mom and my mom were once a part of it. Now our moms are gone and we're the grandmothers. We had four grandchildren with us this year. Missy, Julie and I enjoyed a raucous game of Apples to Apples, as the kids are now all old enough to read. I have SO much to be thankful for.
The tree absolutely dwarfed our little Toyota truck. I think in the future we need a no-tree-longer-than-the-bed-of-the-truck rule.
And Still Not Perfect
