My Journey

My Life, one day at a time!
Almost Turkey Day!

Almost Turkey Day!

Howdy Ho, we we are!  What a day!  It was very pleasant walking this morning, and very nice sitting at coffee.  I just hope this weather holds out for a few more days!  It is kind of funny though, I have windows open, fans going and the balcony door open just a little, (it is very warm in here) but I just got in from Taking Mr G out and it is MUCH cooler out doors!

Today, I am thankful for my health, the hubs health, for all of the wonderful things in life and memories I have of life, that I have received over the years.  Life is good and I am just thankful to be able to enjoy it!  (What are you thankful for?)  I think everyone should  send me an e-mail and tell me what they are thankful for!  Send me your e-mail to

I will maybe post some of these tomorrow.

A while back I posted a picture of my “garlic garden”.  This little sucker is going wild!!!!  Take a look at this now!IMG_0122.jpg  I had also replanted my Christmas Cactus which I was really worried would not make it, but it is coming along quite nicely as well.  At the very top left you will see my Aloe plant.  I haven’t tried any of this yet, maybe this afternoon!  When I do, I will let you know what it tastes like!

I also wanted to show you all the latest picture of my lemon tree.  Still no lemons, but the tree is really growing!IMG_0123

Speaking of.  I do not like to keep any nut butters in the house, because it is like crack for me.  I will literally take a spoon and eat it.  I had such a craving for this, so I found thisIMG_0124  I am sure this has been around for some time, but I just found it.  How cool, collagen in my Chocolate Peanut Butter???  Does it get any better than this?  I have tried some, and it is like crack, I will really have to practice self control on this.  Let me know if you have had this in the past.

Who is binge watching anything good?  Let me know PLEASE!!!  with the hubs being home so much recently, and even more down time over the holiday, we have pretty much exhausted everything we were binge watching and everything we had saved.  Any good ideas?  The worst thing we are doing now is watching a LOT of Diners, dives and Drive-ins.  This is not good. We watch that, then we get bored, then we both want to eat, and neither one of us needs this.  The other thing we watch a lot is the Holiday Baking Championships!  This isn’t as bad because this is more about decorating, but it still makes us both want a BIG piece of cake, or cookies or like last night, they were doing Thanksgiving Pie.  I do not even really like pie!  So, if you have any good suggestions, please let me know.  Send these to

The trees right now are just beautiful out.  It makes going outdoors even better.  I can look at our balcony and it is like a patchwork quilt, so many bright colors.IMG_0118

I was so upset and sometimes, I am just stupid.  I told you all how I was on a roll yesterday and getting so much work done and things crossed off my list.  I was done to Christmas cards and gifts for my customers.  Well, I thought that I was so smart last year.  I got lazy and blew off sending the Christmas Cards I had ordered last year, but saved them, thinking I would just use them this year!  Well, I got them out yesterday and got everything ready to do Christmas Cards, and guess what, they referred to 2018!!!!  Bummer!  Now I have to get new cards!!!!  I WILL get this ALL done by the end of this week!  I promised myself!

I am going to be honest and tell everyone now, I am not sure if I will post blogs on Thursday and Friday of this week.  With the holiday and everything else going on, I may try to do one good post tomorrow and then maybe another on Sunday!  Are you all cool with that?  I hope so.  Unless, I come across some HUGE Black Friday sales that I just have to share.
