Happy Fall Friends
It is so hard to believe that Thanksgiving will be in a few weeks. I haven't made a lot of Thanksgiving themes but am working on Christmas. a lot of Christmas designs. I made a logo for a company and they seemed to be very pleased with it, so hope it works out for them. Have another book cover I am working on for an author. Have it pretty much finished just have to get her final approval.
Halloween was fun. We had Puss N Boots, a lion and the cutest little lady bug you ever saw. We live on a dead end road so don't get many trick or treaters. But 3 great grandkids got to get treats, anyway. Years ago when our kids were small our road was full of kids and they would all go out together and have tons of fun and get tons of treats. My husband and I used to go through the bags and pick out some treats we liked!
We will get two Thanksgiving dinners this year. One at our son's house before Thanksgiving with grandkids and great grandkids so looking forward to that. Then we will have a small dinner at our house on Thanksgiving. This will be the 55th Thanksgiving dinner I have fixed but it will be so much smaller than they used to be when my parents, grandparents, brother, sister, aunts, uncles and cousins were around to attend. I remember the last Thanksgiving my Grandpa and Grandma were able to make. Grandma wanted to taste a "tiny bit" of the wine, so we poured her a little bit in a glass and she drank it down really fast. She had never tasted wine before! Then all of a sudden she got really warm. It was a great moment and we laughed so hard. I will never forget. She was such a special grandmother and I was her first grandchild and got to spend a lot of time with Grandpa and Grandma on their little farm. I can remember going to town with her when I was very small. I knew if I saw something I really liked she would buy it for me. Or I would get it for Christmas. I think the only time I ever rode in a taxi was with her. She didn't drive and I can't remember why we were in town in a taxi, but I do remember the taxi. That was a very big deal for this poor little farm girl.
I am so glad our local elections are over. The junk mail and phone calls we got was terrible and the amount of money spent was enormous and such a waste because I think everyone probably knew who and what they were going to vote for before they ever received any mail or phone calls. I am so glad they turned out the way we wanted. Getting the County Council members in we wanted and needed so badly was probably more important than federal elections since they don't get much done in DC.
Time is going too fast. The older you get the faster it goes. When I was a child I remember Christmas time would never get here and the days would just drag. Now they fly. I don't have enough time in the day to get everything done I need and want to do. Or maybe I am just slower!
I am going to wish you all a Thanksgiving and thank everyone for the great reviews your are posting on the Persona sight and the emails. I try to answer most of them but sometimes one will slip by me. But I do thank you and appreciate you taking the time.
