Putting the Cat Out

Winter is settling in here in Middle Tennessee. Early morning temperatures are in the 20's and the first freeze came and went and left a melted looking landscape. Can't say that I'm sad about that either, after the long, hot, dry summer we just had.

It's quiet around here this time of year. Most of the songbirds are gone or not singing. There are no insects chirping at night. Just cold silence. Except for that snoring that comes from under any blanket that's left lying around. Althea had a tendency to root under blankets or t-shirts or anything that's left on the floor and fall asleep. When we first got her, we would throw something over her and she would stay there until she fell asleep. We started calling it 'putting the cat out'.

As I sit here typing this, there is a lumpy blanket on the chair behind me. The lump is snoring. Althea is sound asleep. We won't be seeing much of her around her until Spring. Must be nice!
I'd love to join her, but I'll have to wait until the Holiday rush is over.
Until next time.....

Happy Thanksgiving!

Over the river, and through the wood, to Grandfather's house we go;
the horse knows the way to carry the sleigh through the white and drifted snow.
Over the river, and through the wood, to Grandfather's house away!
We would not stop for doll or top, for 'tis Thanksgiving Day.
Over the river, and through the wood- oh, how the wind does blow!
It stings the toes and bites the nose, as over the ground we go.
Over the river, and through the wood and straight through the barnyard gate.
We seem to go extremely slow- it is so hard to wait!
Over the river, and through the wood- when Grandmother sees us come,
She will say, "o, dear, the children are here, bring a pie for every one."
Over the river, and through the wood- now Grandmothers cap I spy!
Hurrah for the fun! Is the pudding done? Hurrah for the pumpkin pie!

Happy Thanksgiving!
Until next time.....

Christmas Candy and Holiday Music

It's official! The holiday season is here. The Christmas music stations are already playing on Dish Network. It's a week early this year, but I don't care. I love listening to the classics.

My shops are ~beginning to look a lot like Christmas too~. So many of the vintage beads that I have look like Christmas candy.
Head over to my Etsy shops and check out the vintage goodies. I'm running a Holiday Shipping Special that runs until 12/31/07. I'm also doing a jewelry showcase today.

To those of you that venture out on Black Friday ~ have fun. And to those of you that shop on Cyber Monday ~ hope to see you on Etsy.
Until next time.....

Turkey Pole

One good reason why an edit button would be nice to have on the Etsy forums!
Although I must say, I love every one's sense of humour.
Until next time.....
