While this will likely always be remembered as the year Lucas open a new bottle of Ranch Dressing only to have it "explode" all over his face, clothes, the table AND the living room curtains, the year the always dependable rolls failed miserably, the year we left the green beans in the microwave and Zoe, the golden retriever, stole a piece of turkey off the platter, it was without a doubt a great day. I was, and am, tired, the cooking isn't so bad the clean up is pretty rough when all I want to do is sit around, chat and drink wine! That's the downside to using my Mother's bone china-can't put it through the dishwasher. I know that going in but I still use it! To have the family gathered in love (And relative peace) is a gift. Then they all left taking their children and dogs with them and that was a gift as well. "VBS" I wandered through my house shutting off lights and locking up last night thinking that the finished space in the bedroom improved the day by spreading us out and that made all the work worth it! Then I walked into my room and found one of my measuring cups lying on the floor by my bed and had to smile! Brax gets around!

I'm sure you all thought I'd fallen off the edge of the world! Really, I only fell into the basement. Once Rob and Tanya moved into their own place their old space looked like this:
There are a few things left to be finished up but it's waiting until after the holidays, I'm beat.
Tomorrow, it's time to prep for Turkey Day! I do hope to get some time in the sewing room/office, although it will mostly be clean up. That needs to be done so badly! I plan to sew all day on Friday with one dvd movie after another on my little tv. I'll take time out to walk with Quinn and eat but that's about all. I need a break!

Every year I complain about acorns! So here's why---
There are three kinds of acorns around here:
I've been busy but I have nothing to show yet--by this time next week I hope to have the basement room finished! There will be photos!
