Here in NC we are expecting some freezing rain this morning. I hope that this weather system does not impact your Thanksgiving plans in the Northeast. Wishing everyone safe travels over the next couple of days.
So here we go...
Here is my progress on Stacy Nash's summer tribute sampler. A little more on the border and a few more leaves in the middle. I love this and just need to spend more than 45 minutes twice a week working on this.
I received this fabulous chart from Carol over at Stitching Dreams. I am tempted to pull the threads and stitch it this upcoming weekend.
I tried a few new recipes this week. I think that I needed more salt for my avocado.
This is pumpkin cheesy pasta from the skinny taste blog. I liked it. It had a pretty mild flavor and I will probably make it again.
Rich and I keep different bars around for snacks or part of a meal for me when I am going between jobs. I have not tried the holiday flavored Clif bar yet but I am looking forward to it. The bar on the right cam from Aldi and I think it was 89¢. It was the same as this flavor Clif bar just cheaper..woohoo.
So what are your plans for the holiday? I was hoping to go to Richmond for the weekend like we did last year but a few things have come up so we will try to go towards the end of December.
I have my shopping dine and everything ready for the dish that I have to make.
Rich & I are going to try to knock out the Christmas cards, we send about 100 out every year. I also need to do some dusting so I will probably put some lights up on my mantle and decorate it. I need to go through my closet. Since we are home there will be at least one Zumba class, maybe some yoga ad a hike. I want to make a pot of minestrone. Maybe see a movie and of course stitch.
I will not shop Thanksgiving Day! I worked retail for many years and I hate the fact that more and more retailers are opening Thanksgiving Day. I know that the managers have it so bad. There is so much more expected with less help. If you are out shopping this weekend. Please be kind and patient with any retail personnel that you encounter.
Ok, stepping down from my soapbox and leaving you with this frosty pic that I took yesterday morning.
This is the fountain next to the library in Asheboro. The building that you see is the Randolph County Courthouse.
Have a great Tuesday!!
