Have a Homey Thanksgiving

It's been blue skies and warm weather for days.
I've enjoyed it out on the porch with the doggies.

I've also done plenty of hunkering down inside pretending it's winter.

Sammi was not impressed with Mr. Scarecrow invading her space.
She indulged me for a picture.

Mmm...pecan pies!

The last row of this doily is giving me fits.
I can't figure it out in one place.
I just decided to change the pattern instead of ripping it out yet again.
It's still going to take me a good hour and a half to finish.
Then it needs a good soaking before I pin it out on the blocking board.
I'm crossing my fingers it flattens out, but I'm leery of this one.

Thanksgiving will be a quiet one around here. The Captain is working 7a-7p. Those pecan pies are going to work with him for all the guys working tomorrow. Some other wives are sending food too, so they'll be taken care of when they get a chance to run into the station and eat.

Y'all enjoy whatever you're doing and have a safe and happy holiday weekend!


  1. I don't have to pretend it's winter here! The fog has rolled in and I have a fire roaring in the woodstove. I cheated and went to Costco today and bought a HUGE pecan pie today. The crowds were ridiculous and I wanted to gete was a pie. I know we won't eat more than half so I'll be freezing the rest for a later date. The chicken is being cooked for the enchilada's tomorrow so all I have to do is put them together and bake them. Easy, peasy Thanksgiving dinner for this year. I hope you have a good day tomorrow Pammy Sue. SNuggle up with your doggies and crocheting my friend.

  2. Hi Pammy Sue!
