Odds and Ends.


I am a bit scattered this week. So is our internet service, as in one minute we have it and the next we don't. So we are waiting for the cableone guy to come to our house this afternoon. Rick only managed to download one photo for me to share because the internet kept timing out before it would download. So I have been frustrated and limited in my normal blog routines and yet somehow it has sorta worked in my favor. I have needed the time to get ready to put some fresh ideas into our Thanksgiving tradition this year.

Thanks to the recipes of The Pioneer Woman I am excited to try a few new dishes. Thanks to the extreme craftiness of my friend Robin we are going to attempt this cute advent craft for an activity on Turkey day. Thanks to my sweet friend Gitz who has shown me just how much I have to be thankful for every day, not just this week of Thanksgiving. She could also use a few extra prayers this week if you are so inclined.

And I found this little gem that I thought was truly the way I would sum up my thoughts this Thanksgiving. "If you don't get everything you want, think of the things you don't get that you don't want." I've never really thought of it this way... illness, tragedy, relationship woes, etc. What would you include on your list? Roxanne Henke shared this quote with her readers on her site. She is a christian fiction writer from the great state of North Dakota and if you have never read her books I would HIGHLY recommend them.

  3. Vicky I'm so glad Rick got that perfect picture to upload...beautiful. Looking forward to more!
    That's a wonderful Thanksgiving message, I'm good at thinking what "might" happen, so this will be easy for me. My mind is already flying through things I'm so thankful that I did not get :)
    Love to you and yours~
    Prayers today for lightheartedness as you "set the stage" for your family to love on each other and make some great memories~
