Check out my new blog background and header. Isn’t it awesome? Tammy from A Primitive Place ~ Tammy made it. She has several backgrounds available, if you are interested. Being new to blogging, and also being computer challenged, I was having trouble getting this beautiful background to work on my blog. I emailed Tammy and she worked with me until it fit my blog – she also created the header for me, since I haven’t done any Christmas decorating yet and did not have a photo that looked good with her beautiful background. Tammy, I can’t thank you enough for the time and talent you put into making my blog look great.
Now I need to get busy and get my decorating done so I can post some pictures. Actually, I have been getting ready. Earlier in the week I packed away all of the Fall decorations. Wednesday was spent cooking and getting ready for Thanksgiving. On Thursday we enjoyed a wonderful day at my parents home – all of our children and grandchildren were able to join us – and nothing makes this Mama’s heart happier than having all of her family together. Today I cleaned house, bought and planted some poinsettias, and helped DH set up the big Nativity scene in the front yard – DH helped plant the poinsettias, made a primitive stable for our Nativity scene and one for our neighbor’s, and mowed the lawn. Tomorrow is inside day – DH will set up the trees and check the lights for me while I am unpacking decorations; then I will be decorating the trees and working on the displays. I feel very blessed to have a husband who helps me.
I hope each of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration and are enjoying your weekend.
With a Grateful Heart,
ON THE MENU WEEK OF NOVEMBER 18TH
