Happy Thanksgiving weekend. I a,m having a PINK and BLACK sale today and a Merry PINK giveaway!

The giveaway is a basket filled with PINK goodies, sweet dulce dulce treats and teenie tiny ornaments and a few PINK glamour items from my PINK BUBBLE. My camera will not load the pictures so hopefully next weekend the part I need will have come in.

How was your TURKEY day? Mine is going to be today. I am setting a very PINK table of love for my sister Vanessa and her hubbie. They have done so much for me in my life I intend to spoil them rotten today. I haven't cooked my own Thanksgiving meal in over 10 years. I might share Bob's kitchen with him a little bit as he is making this outrageous pecan pie for dessert along with the pumpkin ones I made. YUMMY! We are having both Tom Turkey and a glazed ham, sweet potatoes CANDIED PINK of course, broccoli, butternut squash, red smashed garlic potatoes made with (CREAM), stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce, the real kind, waldorf salad, and date nut bread. Sounds good, huh?

Almost done with the Christmas shopping routine, now just have to MAKE everything I bought the materials and supplies for. I bake and cook a lot of my gifts and upcycle the treasures I find throughout the year.

Yesterday I found this beautiful Victorian doll I am turning into an angel for the top of my PINK Christmas tree. Next week I hope to have my  pictures posted for you of the Christmas in Cooperstown Carraige house apartment I rent,

Today's PINKS are a couple of pink houses I pass each morning on the way to my 42 mile one way trek to work. Coming home the sky was filled with PINK hues at dusk.

 This one has such a homey feel to it. There are a bunch of rocking chairs on the porch and I can hardly wait to see what they do to decorate it for the holidays!

 This little one is for sale and has a second older house and a barn with it. Might make a cute little B&B and a holiday shop for someone creative and looking for a country home to fix up. SANTA big as day is standing in the window too!

 I love this turn, but it can be real slippery too! That truck came out of nowhere but it makes the picture more real don't you think? This is country route 28 just outside of Cooperstown, NY coming into the other side of Canadargua Lake. It was the firswt major snow of the season this morning and without my snow tires on yet, made driving interesting for me, more of a sleigh ride up and down the hills to Mohawk Valley I did go!
 I would love to have this house. It has a beautiful view of Canadaragua Lake, nestled right on the curve!
 Sorry about the box, this is the North end of Canadaragua Lake, my sister lives on the other side off Lake Road. Driving while taking pics is a bit tricky for me.
 See the way the sun is hitting this barn and garage? It was about 4:30 on the way home from work Tuesday. Oh my goodness, just breathtaking.
 the sky was filled with those wintry clouds of icy snow and a freezing rain mix, and we got it!
 I love this picture. It is very soothing to me and I have a poem I am working on to go with it for my collection soon to be published!
 Nearly home, and the sun is about all but down as I round the bend to Fly Creek, just about 5 miles outside of COoperstwon where I live. God does paint beautifully!
 This is the notorious CARMEL the runaway FOUND cat. He has been yodeling since the night he got out and ran away last week. I took him to the VET's last Saturday and he is scheduled to be fixed ...
 He totally is MY cat, the picture of contentment and quite a snuggler as we watch TV in BOB'S living rooom.
 I am thankful for my daughter, my beautiful Jenni, 26 first born who is celebrating Thanksgiving weekend with her other family in MD where she grew up. I flew h er home from TX for an early Christmas present.
I am thankful for BOTH my children, Joey the "little" brother is a MARINE serving in Afghanistan. I will be more thankful WHEN he returns home.

 Thanks for calling me Thanksgiving DAy JennI I am so glad you arrived to Gaitherburg safe and hae fun!
                                                             I love her just a little bit!
                                                  I am so  thankful she found her MAN!

 I am thankful he is healthy, LOVES his countyr and is a MARINE, LANCE CPL and the best there ever is!

                                                   I am thankful for the  love of my family!
This is a picture not too far from BOB"S house on Glimmerglass Lake. I often walk down and write my poetry here. Pretty huh? I just love to be near the water and someday hope to have a home on the beach where it is ALWAYS warm.
