Weekend Update, Tuesday Edition


 The pond at Mount Crumpet was frozen on Saturday.
 Some green still on the trees...
 Thin sheets of ice will be growing in thickness as these cold temperatures linger.
A busy day, starting at Ikea,  We had a problem table in our living room.  It was a wrought iron base with a beveled glass top, a sofa table.  With a small girl coming for a extended visit, a table that was always a worry, started looking more like an accident waiting to happen.  We decided on this table, higher, with more display space and two drawers.  A smaller version of our buffet in the dining room.
Funny how quickly we made this purchase thinking of  her safety.  We also did a little Christmas shopping for the same small girl. Baby grand will be getting her own  Ikea kitchen stocked with pots, pans and accessories!
In the neighborhood they haven't picked up the leaves from the streets yet.  Now they are mounds covered in snow.
The snow was still falling today.  So many things yet to do. All the shopping for food is complete, next some baking so someone will have my undivided attention next week. The house is ready, now just hoping and praying for good weather and that Mike won't be scheduled to work on Thanksgiving. I just want all my kids under the same roof  for even just a hour...nothing would make me happier. Still I am so grateful for so many blessings.  Especially for my family.

It will be hit or miss as far as posting for the next two weeks,  Thanks so much for stopping by, and for your kindness and friendship.  It means the world to me.  Enjoy this beautiful day.

My daughter and I chronicle the ice progress on the Fox River every morning when we cross it on our way to school. It seems like just yesterday there were people boating on it! Love your choice of table. I hope to hit Ikea next weekend! So fun shopping for a little girl isn't it? I miss it! Hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving together!
