Today is Thanksgiving and I want to thank all who follow my blog publicly or secretly. I especially want to thanks those who take the time to leave comments and feedback, you are the salt that gives flavor to my blog soup. Without you I may not try as hard to keep it up when I'm tired and falling asleep at the keyboard because I'm a two finger typist and it takes me a bit longer than most to get the job done.
My blog Of Petals and Wool is 10 weeks old and although you can't see all my readers, my stats tells me that I have over 5000 page viewers all over the world so if you don't leave a comment don't feel guilty. You are not alone.
You may not always agree with what I have to say and it would not surprise me as I don't usually beat around the bush when I have something to say. No , I jump right in the bush. lol...It usually comes from the heart and I'm not the most diplomatic person either but those who know me, know that I mean what I say and I usually mean well and I like to help when ever I can.
Now to my day:
This afternoon I've been cleaning the milking parlor floors, gutters and the pit where the men stand to milk the cows and tomorrow I'll tackle the walls. I was running out of time and had to go feed the calves and check on the over due cow who should have calved on the 7th and had to clean myself up and prepare our Thanksgiving meal.
I baked 2 pumpkin pies in the morning and planned my supper of roasted potatoes, Shake and Bake chicken Breast, broccoli and cauliflower and quickly executed the plan and my husband added each a glass of wine and he had to run to a meeting for 7 o'clock even on Thanksgiving. We have to take our moments where ever we can find them. We have so much to be thankful for and I have to remind myself that a grateful heart is a happy heart.
In my other life I don't want to rush for anything. I find that this constant rushing is stressing me up.
I want to share a photo of my ity- bity progress on my Childhood Memories rug.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone. JB
