Halfway thru November!

I can't believe November is halfway gone, and Thanksgiving is in a week! Once Halloween is over, the year flies by. We just had a three day weekend, and I had such a bad cold that I didn't enjoy it, I just slept all day for 2 days. I still have a cough from it.

I sewed! I found great fabric at Joann's that is made up of 4 inch flannel squares already sewn together. So it was a matter of putting batting and backing with it and quilting it together. It's for my future great-nephew Joseph. 

I picked up my new glasses lenses today, hopefully they got it right this time. So far so good.

Ralph dug out all the reel-to-reel tapes that he sent to his family and they sent back, when he was overseas in the SeaBees. He's transferring them to CD's. It's amazing that they are still playable after more than 40 years. 

Manda and Ben get in on Monday night! We're doing our usual Thanksgiving dinner at Mike and Donna's. Then Saturday will be Thanksmas at Heather and Ed's, where we'll do gifts with them. Sunday is the baby shower for Joseph and Ali, then they fly out Sunday evening. 

Manda is bringing the supplies to teach me how to knit socks! I'm very excited by that. I need something to frustrate me! 

The time change is terrible. It's nice to leave when the sun is up, but it's dark by 5 pm. 

And so it goes!
