Outside my window............Sun is shining, and it is cool
I am thinking.................of my Thanksgiving feast and what I have to do yet.
I am thankful for.............for all the blessings from on high, God has been so good.
From the kitchen........the smell of coffee, yeah we are drinking coffee today
I am wearing...............my nightgown, robe and slippers.
I am remembering..........my first Thanksgiving and how proud I was of my Turkey, I have a photo some where I look about 10, giggles grin from eat to ear.
I am going..........to finish my laundry today, and make Spaghetti for dinner.
I am reading.........a book about King David, an old historical book I picked up at a yard sale.
I am hoping............and praying that God will bless this new little church, and that he will grow a good work there in Kingsland, GA.
Earlier this morning When we put our chickens up last night one was missing, we looked all around the yard and she was no where in sight. I was sick, this was Esther my favorite hen, and she is my bold one too. Well this morning I was awaken by a loud clucking, it was Esther on my back porch, LOL not a clue where she spent the night but she was ready to join her sister hens, I grabbed the feed can and she followed me straightway to her pen, I opened her door and she went right in with glee, when I left out back they all were happy hens clucking and eating the food I had given.
When I come inside I had dogs to feed, and coffee to make, we I am tried already, and my day has just begun.
Oh pray for my dh, he is preaching tonight at the church he is going to Pastor, not sure if I told you or not, but Sunday he will begin to be Pastor of Gospel Light Baptist Church. The pastor that is there now called yesterday sick, so wanted him to come tonight, soooooooo we are at another church now, and pray God will bless and lead and help us to grow this church.
How to Make a Nut Wreath
Decorate for the holidays this season with this festive homemade nut wreath! A wide variety of nuts is sold at holiday time. Fashion them into this charming decoration especially suitable for Thanksgiving.
1 straw or grapevine wreath form (10 to 12 inches)
an assortment of unshelled walnuts, chestnuts, filberts (hazelnuts), almonds, and brazil nuts
pine sprigs, ivy, or small grape leaves (optional)
To give the wreath a special sheen, paint the filberts and chestnuts with varnish and set them on a wire rack to dry.
Attach a loop of wire to the back of the wreath form for hanging it when complete.
Glue on the nuts, working slowly around the wreath, making sure they are all secured. Start with the largest nuts—walnuts, chestnuts, and Brazil nuts, and use the smaller filberts and almonds to fill in around them.
Using a glue gun, attach the greens or leaves to the wreath form in between the nuts.
Tie the ribbon into a bow and secure it to the wreath with glue or wire.
