Thankful


And I am thankful for a great weekend.  The grand kiddies and I went with the Rooster to pick up the new stove and we got that in place and ready for Thanksgiving dinner on Sunday.  The stove worked wonderfully and dinner was delicious.  We waved goodbye to everyone and began to think about what happens next.  We did talk a lot about how the kitchen is functioning and what we need to do to improve things.  The new stove has no plug and that is a serious disadvantage. ;)  Crock pots, ya know! 

The Rooster was scheduled to work today but I had big plans for reorganizing the shelves in the kitchen and I made good use of uninterrupted blocks of time.  He is a much more serious cook than I am and we need to collaborate on the layout but I got lots of preliminary stuff done. 

I had hoped to be done in time to get into the studio but maybe tonight.  I have several good ideas all ready to implement.  I expect we will get some more nice weather but I am looking forward to being snowed in!  ;)

I am thankful that I can be so happy with the small things as well as the big!

Happy Thanksgiving Dear. Very nice to have a new stove and family for dinner. I never thought of a plug in my stove...I don't think I have ever seen that. My crock pot sits on the counter where I plug it in. Hmmm...whats for dinner tonight?
I enjoyed your Littles and their visit very much. Kitchen Bliss Dear...
