The beginning of the season for us. Same friendly "Thanksgiving Cacti" that have lived under our bench outside for years. Gotta get a white one soon. I love them so.

Finally done, my friends, 12 pencil pouches for teachers/ 25 pencils per pouch. Not one pouch is perfect, just like people, but I did the best I could and I hope the teachers like them. The kids will make tags: "Our family thanks you for being a teacher" and start passing them out after Thanksgiving. Most of these teachers have worked with all three children. They all know our story and are sooooo great, going the second mile all the time!! I am so grateful.

There was a loose brick in the sidewalk which I did not see...due to a certain peppermint milkshake I was holding...Evidently there will be no multitasking for me ever again!! I tripped on the brick, and ended flat on the grass in tears. no break, but a twisted ankle and a very hurt sense of pride!! Those poor guys from next door were joined by the two basketball players on the court next door. They got me up...TBTG Tonight I hurt all over.
Because of my craziness this week with two falls, I did ask the boys what they were doing tomorrow...I booked them, just in case it is true that 3 times is the charm!! (I am using the walker now to prevent number three while I heal.)
Good things today are: Our rugs were finally put down after the flood 7 months ago. The children were a great help...they were off school for the holiday. Dylan had his first Covid shot, so far, no problem. My hair dresser came to my driveway and cut my hair.. Tomorrow the cleaning lady comes, a friend visits and the children leave at four to spend the weekend with their mother. Sat and Sunday I will read and rest. Sew? Hope I will be able to.
Saturday: Feeling a bit better, but still on 4 Ibuproben for each dosage. My darling grandchildren both now have developed middle school mouths...I had begged Dylan not to grow up like that...but...all my hopes fell on deaf ears. In three months I will have a 12 year old and a 13 year old. Both kids told me that they are oh, so good out with others, just like to take it all out on old grandma...I get it......but,.....
They have now left with my sister for the morning, then off to their mother's for the rest of the weekend.
An old lumpy log cabin flimsy is better than showing no quilt at all!!!!!

New plaid skirt for Aoife made by her mother for the pumpkin patch! Aoife smiles with her mouth open!!
Lynsey all sad from not being able to go to Alabama with her brother...But, look what he brought her!!
TBTG that I bounced...good side of the new weight gain...Bad side, it took 3 neighborhood men to lift up my ancient dead weighted body to the preferable standing position.
