Thanksgiving has come and gone and now will be getting ready for Christmas. I like this time of the year, but with it also comes the thoughts of the long cold winter.  We have had some nice weather but it appears about to end.  Thanksgiving day was a beautiful day.  I do not like winter.  The first real snow is an event, but it is pretty much down hill from January to spring.  Two of my favorite things, auctions and garage sales are pretty much put on hold from now til April.

We had a great Thanksgiving Dinner at my daughters with part of the family. I ate all I wanted, and yet did not gain back a pound of the 9 I have lost.  Now I just have to get through Christmas.  But am determined to pace myself to I can enjoy it, but not have any regrets afterwards.

Since I last wrote on this blog, I lost another cousin who had been ill for quite sometime.  And my Mom is now having more bad days than good.  She is tough though, one day she will be in bed, and then back to where she can go down to the dining room at the nursing home.  They have really taken good care of her.  Of course they know I am going to be in and out at least once a day if not more, and sad to say but I do think that makes a difference in most nursing homes.

Got my tree put up today. Have one gift to wrap and another on the way.  They are for an early dinner I have with a club I belong to, so I cannot pat myself on the back for early shopping.

Thanksgiving day with 2 of my daughters and a granddaughter.

Christmas tree 2011.  Hope to have some presents under it in a week or so.
