Looks like snow but it is just fog and frost.....so I took my time, this morning, reading the paper and drinking my coffee while sitting in front of the warm fire in the fireplace.
What I love most about Thanksgiving are the leftovers.....you with me? I remember, several years back, on the day after Thanksgiving I had to go off to work (that is life in the newspaper business) and my four teenage children picked the turkey clean. By the time I got home there was no cold turkey sandwich for Mom......really I've never forgotten or forgiven!! Well, I have sort of......there are some years, now, when I forget to remind them! Holidays are all about the memories.
Speaking of memories......I've wrapped up the "Gratitude Journal" and it will soon be wrapped and under the tree.
I put prompts on some pages...........
And some pages I left open for the recipient to write their own meaningful thoughts and/or experience.
Finally, I thought I would share this little idea with you. Some of you know that I have a new Gelli Printing Plate that I've been having a great time with and I've made a BUNCH of prints.....some good, some not so much! But, I've figured out one way to use up a few.......
I typed out this quote that I really like, cut and pasted it four times on one page. Then I ran the Gelli prints through the printer so the quote would print on the unpainted side, cut them into lengths and I've stitched each one with a "red line of thread". I'm giving them to friends instead of Christmas cards this year.
Enjoy your weekend.....hope you are staying warm, as there are parts of the country where it is much colder and much more miserable than it is on the west coast. So stay safe!
