The meaning of Thanksgiving …

I want to wish everyone I know (and don’t know) a happy Thanksgiving. I know that there are those out there who are down on the day because it “disrespects” one culture or another, but if you really look at why the season occurred, you might understand it more. a.) the pilgrims had survived b.) they had befriended some of the locals who shared their food with one and other and c.) even though it was many years and a (once better) government later it was put on the calendars as a holiday.  It was a day to reflect on all that has happened to us during the year. The good and the bad, and to count our blessings for that which has been good while thinking about what we could improve upon to make the next year even better. Sure people pig out on this day. Sure they tend to sit around the TV and scream obscenities at it when their team isn’t winner, but it is a time for family, and thankfulness. So I say again to you all, Happy Thanksgiving to one and all. Have a great day!

Not sure …

This is one of those days when I am not sure how I feel. It is kind of a blah day, and it is two days before I go out of town for the first time in … I don’t know … forever! It falls mid month when I have already spent my allotment on inventory and groceries. This leaves me pretty close to broke again. I am not too upset about what I have purchased to date because most of the money from the last couple of months went into a kitty for an actual workshop where I can set up a small shop as well. But right now I am feeling kind of out of it. There are storms moving through the area which my joints harolded the past few days with pain in every part of my body from bottom to top.  I don’t like telling everyone about that because that is hubster’s thing. I can usually work through it, but today it wasn’t a good day for that. I would love to win the lotto and set up shop on a huge piece of property off the grid, but I think it will take a lot of hard work and more time than this ol’ crone believes she has left to do it.

Sorry guys, I just needed some vent time and possibly a sympathetic ear today. Thanks for reading. Have a great rest of the month. LOVE all the posts and photos I have seem. Keep up the great work.
