We're having more of a normal winter here finally after several odd winters.After the drought and horrible fires we REALLY need major snow in the mountains this year. Here's hoping! It's been cold, leaves are falling, gradual cooling down. Lows in the teens this week, with some more snow forecast. Maybe we'll have a white Thanksgiving? We're having our main meal today at my daughters. With 2 sets of in-laws things get rotated very year. Thursday we'll have just 2 over for a nice dinner but with pork roast and cranberries. My roasting turkey breast is coming along nicely, cranberry sauce made, making a kale salad too with grapes and blue cheese to take. I REALLY miss having Friday off the day after Thanksgiving. I'd love to have that long weekend off, but I'll be working. The first time in 20+ years or more. Most businesses close that day, but not mine, oh joy. No movie and sleeping in for me :( While I don't do the black Friday thing I do like relaxing, and no more "snow days"!
sorry for the blur, my hardy geraniums

First Grandchild Is On The Way!
Some big news- my first grandchild is on the way! The baby is due in June. I'm glad all my girls have waited to start a family. They finished college and had time to grow up, then grow in a marriage. I wanted to wait a bit to announce things as I really like to protect my family's privacy. Sadly there are people who post everything to their blog, Facebook, etc. and don't stop to think of turning their filters on. I look at it as- do your kids want to see that all in 10 years? I DO NOT like finding out about significant events thru Facebook. Anyway, I'm really excited and thinking about what we'll need to be Grandparents. Luckily, right now, we're down the street 5 minutes. The kids are looking at buying a house at some point soon, since there's a real rental shortage in Boise. They're been married a few years now and will make great parents I'm sure. I think you really get a different perspective on your family history when another generation comes up. Now I'm trying to figure out what we may need for babysitting? Luckily there's some newer inventions since I was a Mom like this, nice, portable and storeable-
Overkill for us, but I love this Ikea layout, good use of space-
