The End is Near

The end of the year, that is! Has been a really good year for us! Here's to hoping 2011 is a good one too! We welcomed our first grandchild this year, and what a joy he is! We have so many things to be thankful for!

Enjoyed the Christmas Holiday also.....the kids and their families bought us a really nice digital camera, so hopefully soon I will learn how to post pictures on here!

Have a safe and Happy New Year!

Chocolate supply

Hmmm.....I think someone might be making fun of my chocolate stash...........My daughter helped me clean out some of my kitchen cabinets and then took some pictures to put on here.......gee, my secret is out...stashes of chocolate all fairness these did come from the cabin when we closed it up for the winter. Didn't use them all for s'mores.....Well.....I guess that doesn't explain the THREE kinds of chocolate syrup in the pictures....AND the package(s) of chocolate chips......oops.............I did realize I have plenty of spaghetti. and three jars of hot sauce...and microwave popcorn that expired in 2005......oh yes, the pictures only show part of the "collection" I will have to do this more often....

This weekend just flew by! Did a little Christmas shopping Saturday morning....A visit from our daughter and the grandson in the afternoon.. She helped clean out some of our kitchen cabinets...that was quite a project! That night I wrapped some gifts.

Went to church this morning and then spent the afternoon doing paperwork and other chores around the house. We also harvested seeds for next year's garden from the heirloom pumpkins and the gourds from the fall display. This evening we went out to our daughter and son-in-laws house for a really nice dinner...lasagne and hot bread. I brought a salad and our other daughter brought gooey butter. We all had a nice time visiting. We even got to see the cat...Mose....he was visiting inside as well. Was sure nice to relax and visit with everyone for a little while.

Goodbye, Old Friend

Had to say goodbye to an old friend the other day.......our old cat, which we had had since I think 1995..She had really been doing ok until a couple days before she passed....Her decline from there was rather rapid.. On Thanksgiving night we decided to take her to the local vet the next day, but she was gone in the morning. She was a pretty awesome cat. Sure not the prettiest cat, and not the friendliest, but she sure had a personality. She used to follow me around the yard as I did things. After all those years she was for sure a fixture in our family. I still catch myself checking the doors to see if she wants in. I will miss her alot.
