The vintage tree ornaments have been sitting here for three weeks.

The tree was cut and brought into the house three days ago.

I have been to the store three times to get the right lights.

I told Friendie the tree would be ready at three o'clock today.

I am ready....since I just drank three cups of coffee!!!

Oh...and I bought these gorgeous vintage ornaments at a thrift store for three dollars!

In Tune

I had Wally, the piano tuner, here last week.

I bought this piano at a local estate sale a month ago.

The piano was first tuned in 1972....and once more in 1973.

This was only the third time this piano has ever been tuned!

Wally said the piano appeared to have never been played.
He was very impressed by its condition.

There wasn't even any dust inside!

He said it set a record for the 'most out of tune' piano he has ever tuned!

But now we have a beautifully tuned piano just in time for the Christmas season!!!

(I put in a $200 bid.....and was so surprised to actually get this piano!  We gave our other piano to our oldest daughter, (who was wanting a piano for her house) since we bought that piano back when she was a little girl taking piano lessons....just incase we are asked to leave this piano in our house when we move.)

Season's Change

We have had unseasonably warm weather these past weeks.

Two days ago we worked outside without jackets.

Yesterday the wind started blowing....

Today the wind is still howling....
and it has brought us our first snow!

(Picture taken through the window....I don't plan on going outside unless necessary today)

(Our dog has the very same plan.)

Give Thanks

We have so much to be thankful for!

I am especially thankful for my family and the memories created over the years.

Oh how quickly the years are passing...
may we pause each day and remember to Give Thanks... In All Things.

God's Blessings to you on this Thanksgiving Day!
