Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all that may stop by..
Need to post more often, hard to remember whats been going on. I know that I am Thankful for Gods many blessings!!
I worked a few days since I have posted. Had the 3 grand kids overnight last week-end and enjoyed them. All is well here.
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, Our day will be changing some this year, My dear MIL died right before Christmas last year so this will be the first year without her. Also My Ds decided to do a community project thru his college, feeding the Fireman and Police that are working in the town the college is in. So me being the mom was nervous so of course I kinda took on the project. We will be there till around 3 then home for dinner at 6 for about 15 eating at home should be fun. See you all later

Hello, Hope everyone is doing well today. I am great, loving this weather. My day was spent going to grocery store. I went to 2 stores and tried to look for sales items and also baking supplies for the coming up Holidays. So come home and decide to make some dressing and sweet potato souffle to mix up and put in the freezer. so made up cornbread and biscuits, baked sweet potatoes and chopped up onions and celery. Put some chicken in crock pot over tonight to have the broth. So potatoes and dressing stuff in the fridge to mix up tomorrow. Before you say that this girl is doing well....
Remember the 1 cent item at publix every week, well the other week it was oatmeal some how I got 2 things of oatmeal, now we like oatmeal, but the instant kind so was think, I would just make
oatmeal cookies.....Seemed like a good idea. I must not know how to read direction, because after getting all ingredients together and mixing up, it seemed kinda dry but i went ahead and put a spoon full a piece on a baking pan. When they finished cooking they were terrible!!! DH tried to put more water in the rest of the batter and his looks better but Ds took 1 bite and then went and spat it out and he is a cookie monster. So much for baking...Toll House cookies here we come...
Had a great time over the week-end. Our Church has some property and hope someday to have a active camp there but right now we have a pavilion, with kitchen and bathrooms, a small boat house and a baseball field. We held a harvest fest Saturday and was hoping for between 300-500 people, that did not happen only had about 200 including all the workers but we all had a great time, had many game booths, craft tables, hay ride. I worked with the concession and it was fun. Had so much fun and candy left over, but many things coming up with Church events so we will use them.
This week DH business not looking to good, but I will continue to Trust God for direction. Thinking about taking a Math class, more on that later!! Look up!
