Happy Thanksgiving

This has been an interesting year with many things to be thankful. In the last couple of weeks I have finally gotten back into the creative mood. I fell behind on birthday cards and gifts but will be finishing a couple and sending them – even if they are late.

Mac & I have decided to not drive anymore due to the traffic and the crazy drivers. We will be working for Amazon starting as seasonal workers with hopes of becoming full time. We have been very fortunate to have clean driving records and no accidents.

The rest of this year, I will be working on Christmas presents for everyone. Not sure what I’m going to do for all but will have to get busy and decide.

Have a wonderful thanksgiving and appreciate who and what you have!

Chicken Zoodle Soup

A couple of days ago, I roasted a whole chicken. Yesterday I decided to make Chicken Zoodle Soup. I took the chicken carcass, meat & bones, placed them in a pot with water and chicken bouillon. I let this cook for a couple of hours then took the meat off of the bones. To complete the soup, I chopped a red onion, & thinly sliced 2 carrots & 2 stalks of celery. I placed the veggies in the pot with the chicken, added salt and pepper and let the soup cook until the carrots were fork tender. With my spiralizer, I took 2 zucchini and made them into zoodles. Added the zoodles to my soup and let cook about 15 minutes so the zucchini was tender. This was very delicious and great for a cool fall day.

Clean Your Refrigerator Day

When I found out it is Clean Your Refrigerator Day, I realized that my fridge could use a cleaning. I took out the drawers, washed them and wiped down the shelves. This a a good idea to do before Thanksgiving gets here. After all you can get rid of any old products and have more room for your Thanksgiving groceries and leftovers. So get to it and do a little refrigerator cleaning.

Veterans’ Day

Mac & I met in Louisiana while he was serving in the U.S. Army. We moved to California to help his grandparents with a hope of serving at Fort Irwin. As the military was downsizing at the time, they gave him an honorable discharge so we could  move out here where we still are today.  So on this Veteran’s Day I would like to thank all veterans for their sacrifice and dedication. Please join me!

Decorating Started

I have been slowly decorating inside the house.  Here is a couple of pictures of the bathroom. You will notice that the main colors (yellow, rust, gray & white) are still there but accented with black, purple and orange.

 

Next to the kitchen. I don’t like the way the valance is hanging so I’m trying to decide on either a curtain rod or maybe just a better piece of twine.

Here are my pot holders.

And just to make you feel welcome:

Halloween Decorations

Last week I said I would start decorating next week.  Well it is next week. Yesterday we took all the plastic bins out of the shop and brought them to the house. We have 5 bins and some jumbo eyes still in the box.

We also have one bin with costumes. I guess I have had this bin too long as it has a crack down the side. I will be going through all these costumes and decorations to decide what I will be hanging and what I will be selling or throwing away.
