I took a half day off. Just dinking around, doing laundry, cleaning up the kitchen, mucking out the sun room, and checking on DC. Turkey day is elsewhere, so no cooking for tomorrow.

We cleaned house this morning. I'm getting ready to work on some chores for tomorrow - get ingredients ready for breakfast bread pudding, microwave and dice the butternut squash, and chop the vegetables for the stuffing. Yeeks, I need to make the pumpkin pie, too! Need to start that first!

Spray the nest with a hose. They build nests under soffets bc the nest will die if they get wet.

Thank you Chops

That is great that you and your mum were close too and I know how much you must miss her. When I lost my dad, it killed me and 12 years later I still get emotional when I think of him, which is often. I know with a mum it would be devastating as mum's are very special too and that bond between mum and daughter is very strong

I hope you are doing OK Chops big hug xxx

I went for my eye appointment today. They are going to do the right eye at the end of December. My eye surgeon said I am healing beautifully. It seems that there is another person in the computer with the same name. Only she is 20 years old. When I checked in, the girl was looking at me strangely. Then she asked me for my birthday. I know in a big city, there can often be folks with the same name. But it is making me suspicious.

It's rough isn't it when you lose someone dear who has that special magic my mother had it too. Hy dh said many times of all our parents inclucing his mom that he would pick my mom as a live in with us because she was so good natured and pleasent and ok lets have fun. And she was. God help us when she becan to slip and got dementia. But you know what he still loved her dearly and sood and cried when she passed. It's been 6 years and he still misses her as do I. Hang on to the wonderful memories your growing now they will last you a life time.

I'm ok. It is just a tough time of year with holiday baking and all. She gave me the gift of baking and cooking. Thanks for caring.

I know, this time of the year is when we think of lost loved ones the most!

That is so wonderful that you received the wonderful gift of baking and cooking from your dear mum
