out of the fog....

Finally the fog has lifted, even for a short while it makes a nice change.  Now, if we could try for a bit of sunshine!

This fall continues beautiful.  The range of colors on the trees are striking....I really must take more pictures, soon, before the leaves are all on the ground.

On the homefront things are falling into place with the new routine for Quincy.  He's so good at coming for his insulin shots.  More tests are scheduled for Monday and hopefully this will give us a better idea of how things really are.

Knitting project continue, another scarf finished but no photo yet.  Stitching is on the go as well.  And a new cross stitch chart purchased, Halloween Greetings by Passione Ricamo (not like I really needed something new, this chart is delightful).  Now to kit it up and have it waiting in the wings...

This afternoon has been cooking day, for the week ahead  and the last dish is ready to come out of the oven.

So that's it from this corner.

Giving thanks

Happy Thanksgiving!

It's been a good weekend, not quite how we had planned things but nice all the same.   Beautiful sunny days and very cool nights.

For our grandsons, 'the bugs in the house go round and round'....actually it could have been any source, school, daycare, anywhere.... the end result the same,  Thanksgiving meal with daughter, son in law and grandsons postponed.   We did have turkey and trimmings and enjoyed the company of my parents.  They too are dealing with health issues so their visit/dinner time was cut quite short.  So many changes for them, I wish it was different.

DH  had two days off ...in a row...really nice except he works an afternoon/evening shift today.  And then there were two, Quincy and me.   And this week Quincy has had his share of health issues, as of last Monday it was determined he is diabetic.  As of Wednesday, we have a new routine with twice a day insulin shots for the little guy.   Fingers crossed that things continue to go well.

My blogging has been quiet for some time.  And  although I finally realize that the big stuff I can't change as I would hope to,  I can  do something about the small stuff.   It's never giving up, believing and sometimes finding that silver lining.......

I do apologize to my followers.  I really enjoy reading your blogs and appreciate your comments on mine.  I will work on leaving more comments on yours.

And truly, I do give thanks, for DH, family and friends, living a good life,  enjoying creative endeavours and sharing with you on my blog.
