Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We've been tucked up in our little old farm house since Wednesday night, enjoying each other's company, playing games, hanging out, cooking, eating and visiting. We had a house full of family on Thursday, a perfect bird, 7 deserts and endless coffee and beer. There were scrabble matches, chess matches and stratego games played and everyone laughed, shouted, booed and cheered, it was a lot of fun.
I got out thrifting a few times BUT skipped Black Friday stuff and had friends over instead to make tamales. We made around 6 dozen, drank more beer and stuffed ourselves with tamales. None of us had made them before so there was some learning going on too. LOTS of fun, I love good friends. It was so much fun I forgot to write this post last night and took a bath instead. Woohoooo.
I have a nice set of stuff listed on ebay and the sales are trickling in. I like to wake up and see emails from them that say 'checkout complete'. So much fun!!
Someone spent an awful long time on this piece of counted cross stitch. WOW!
My husband went through his computers and we listed the ones that no longer work.
Last week we had some AWESOME Penny Worthy link ups. This Apple and Sauerkraut Gratin was on my must make list, it still is, but it didn't happen for Thanksgiving, ah well. Mom Essentials linked up a lovely post about Fostering Gratitude, very timely. Linda shared her Thrift Wish List Find, wish I could find her goodies. Don't Waste The Crumbs brought us Dehydrated Apple Chips, How to Save Money w/o Clipping Coupons and a wonderful Foccacia Bread recipe with four variations. The Not So Super Mama linked up a delicious New England Stuffing recipe and a Cranberry Pomegranate Sauce recipe, YUM. We also got to ogle some terrific Baubles and Brooches that were gifted to a little girl for dress up, LUCKY!! Wonderful link ups! I hope you check them out and also link up!
Peace and Love--
