I have a bit of time to write on the blog so I am going to encourage everyone in the US to get out and vote now, tomorrow or on Tuesday. It is perhaps the most important election in my time. I am not going to suggest how you vote, just vote. We are lucky in Washington state and we vote ONLY by mail, so you can take your time to do your duty. We sent our ballots in this week.
Are you beginning to think about Thanksgiving? I am. We are invited to our son's home Saturday to start our Thanksgiving celebrations. And I will have our small Thanksgiving dinner with our kids on Thanksgiving day. This will be the 59th year in a row I have fixed dinner on Thanksgiving. The first Thanksgiving dinner I made was just 9 days before our daughter was born. I remember I kept having to sit down and rest between cleaning and cooking. I was 19 years old and had a 1 year old to take care of, too. We couldn't afford turkey so we had chicken. My Mom raised chickens so if I remember right, I think she probably gave me the chickens! At times during the past 59 years we had as many as 30 people for dinner, but as happens, families grow and then they get smaller. I have loved every Thanksgiving day but will probably have to pass it on to someone else one of these days, but as long as I can do it, I hope to be able to do so.
I just noticed I have some new fans. Welcome and hope you check in every so often.
I am working on winter designs and am going to have to start submitting more because I have so many made already.
So get out and vote if you are eligible to do so. It is your right and if you don't vote, don't complain!
