Gray and Dreary Day!!!!!!!

We've had rain since last Sunday. Today is another gray, dreary day here in East Central Mississippi. That, my friends, is a good thing.

Some people get depressed when the sky is cloudy and gray. Not me! I love cloudy, rainy days. I can watch all the food networks while I knit and not feel a bit of guilt.

I've made eight toboggans and three ear warmers. I'm working on another ear warmer and then will start another toboggan as soon as I finish it up.

"Idle hands are the devil's workshop" doesn't apply here! My hands are most always busy. No time for idleness in this house. :)

The holidays are coming up. We are planning for a houseful on Thanksgiving day. Three of our children are supposed to be here along with the grandchildren, my mom, my stepfather and one of my sisters.

There'll be plenty of food, chatter and laughter. I have so much to be thankful for that there's no beginning and no ending to my blessings.

I wish everyone a blessed Thanksgiving holiday and Christmas season. Happy Thanksgiving, y'all.

I Don't Want To Give Up.....

So while out with Sakura (our Shih Tzu) I checked out the green bean teepee. I found some green beans hiding on the inside of the vines.

While the night time temperatures have dropped into the twenties for several nights, these beans had not been touched by the cold. I picked the beans and we had fresh green beans for our dinner that night. Even had leftovers. :)

I love the surprises I find in our garden even if it's almost the middle of November. Delicious surprises by the way.

Jack Frost Came For A Visit....

Ol' Jack Frost came for a visit the last two nights. He sat amongst the collard greens turning them sweet and tastier. Tonight for dinner we are going to see how sweet the collard greens have become. I am pairing them with baked sweet potatoes, cubed steak with gravy, one of the last three cucumbers from the garden and a tomato that I pulled last week when I thought Jackie Boy was going to visit us.

William has been watching the collard greens for weeks. He made a comment about how big they'd grown most every time he went outside. That is a lot folks for my hubby goes in and out dozens of times a day. LOL

I hope that he will be happy with the meal he's getting for his dinner tonight. He's waited long enough for the greens to be ready!

It's A Rainy Tuesday In Mississippi

The rain started falling about seven-thirty this morning and here it is after ten-thirty and there's been no let up. Rain is falling hard enough that a person would get soaked in short time but not the washing kind of rain. Just what we've been needing for several months.

The temperature is comfortable. I have the front door open so I can hear the rain dripping off the eaves of the house. The sound makes me want to cuddle back under the covers and snooze but then I'd miss hearing all that wonderful water falling from the skies.

Today is a good day for watching t.v. and knitting for a while. My heart rejoices!

Don't Forget to vote, today. It's your privilege!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
