Started the Thanksgiving break by going to Round Rock to help take care of my daughter who had the flu and my grandson. My son in law is awesome, but having two babies to take care of is a bit much! Even for him! Loved spending time with them, even if Heather was sick! Came home and dod some house work and then cooked…..yes, you read it right….cooked Thanksgiving dinner Friday for my hubby, step daughter and mother in law. It was good….see for yourself!
Cooked it all myself….except the turkey. Greenberg smoked that! If you’ve never had a Greenberg smoked turkey, you have to try one. They are the best!
We also had pies, made by Brookshires, the local grocery monopoly ~ apple and pecan. They were yummy as well. Now, it’s time to get ready to back to work. We have two days left. I’m going to do some crafting and then I have to start printing out stuff for the first couple of days of school. Then I’ll be good. Have to start Christmas shopping sometime soon! Plan on decorating tomorrow! Will post pictures of that.
Okay, so I started this blog last year shortly after turning 50. Today I turn 51. Boy has a lot happened! I’ve become a Gigi (grandma)! I have a beautiful grandson. A career change has also occurred! Moving from a large district to a smaller district has been quite the eye opener! Pretty much like dying and going to heaven…(sorry TISD!). And so much has happened in the world as well…….we now have to worry about ebola on our soil. And the political climate is a toxic as I’ve ever seen!
There have been so many times I’ve wanted to come and blog about something…..but then I’d either fall asleep or get busy doing something else (okay, so it usually was the first one, but let me have my fantasy okay?)
One of the things that is very different on my new campus, is we are using the Leader in Me habits for our students. So I’ve decided to make a pledge (yes. I’m publicly doing this – as this will post to my fb page, linkedin account, twitter and google +) to blog more often. (Thank you Jennifer Anderson, author of Sunshine and Sassypants, for the inspiration!)
Some of my blogs will be retroactive – I’m going to show how I made my own sewing table from scratch dang it! I don’t cook from scratch but I sure did make a table from it! (Okay – I did buy the materials from Home Depot…..didn’t cut down a tree and make my own wood, but it’s close enough!) And I have lots of sewing projects that need to e posted! So I hope everyone will allow me that. (Like anyone can stop me! It’s my blog!)
Okay, enough now, because I have to go organize my craft room because of the afore mentioned table. I also have to clean out the guest room for the aforementioned grandson who hopefully will be coming to visit soon! With his beautiful Momma of course!
