Suprise in The Mail

 Look at what has arrived in the mail. just in time for Thanksgiving baking.
 I won this great cook book in Paula's "Fabulous Fall Food Friday" contest.
 I can't wait to start whipping up a few of these dish's.
 This book not only has recipes but is packed full of fall time idea's, tips & crafts, for example
 Time Together
 "Once my sister arrives at our home for Thanksgiving, she joins my daughter and me in our truck. We trim berry branches and pines to fill the window boxes on our homes. We walk through the trees with a big basket in hand to fill with our treasures. There's always such a feeling of contentment and joy when we do this. We hope that my daughter will continue this tradition with her family someday."

With the winter storms in the North lots of people are canceling travel plans. It might be a good time to grab a "Goose Berry Patch" book and get some projects going.

 I asked this question at work "You've no doubt heard the expression "They couldn't pay me enough to do that job."  What job would that be for you?"

 Some of the answers I got where, coal miner & sewer pumper.

 One man who went into the service when he was young and worked on the railroad most of his life said he couldn't think of any job he wouldn't do.
 I asked, "How about pounding steaks & putting in railroad tyes?"
 He replied,"That's not that hard."
 Then I said,"What about building fence and digging all the post holes by hand."
 His answer was "How long of a fence do you want?"

 Give me your answer"What job could they not pay you enough to do?"

Dream Catcher Contest

Dreams interest me.
Do they have a deeper meaning?
Can they foretell the futcher?
Are they your brains way of rebooting & restoring while you sleep?

Do you dream in color?
Do you have a recurring dream that haunts you?

 I often times awaken to a nightmare of a spider slowly descending from the ceiling onto me. When I open my eyes I can actually see the spider and have at times gotten up, turned on the light and pulled back the covers to search for the creepy crawly that I am sure must be in my bed.

 I have a pair of handmade dream catcher earrings that I bought in Montana.
 The dream catchers where believed to catch any harm that might be in the air as a spider's web catches and holds whatever comes in contact with it.
 Dream catchers hung above the bed are used as charms to protect sleeping children from nightmares.
 Bad dreams would stay in the net disappearing with the light of day.
 Good dreams would pass through and slide down the feathers to the sleeper.

 Leave me a comment on this post and you will be entered into a drawing to win these pretty earrings.

Turn The Page Tuesday

 Today is "Turn The Page Tuesday" the first Tuesday of the month.
 This months book is "Forever..." by Jude Deveraux. It was a fun book to read full of good & evil, Mystery & intrigue.

 "Darci Monroe overcame a childhood of neglect with an ebullient spirit, a positive attitude...and extraordinary determination. Now the resourceful young woman, hired as Adam Montgomery's personal assistant, devotes more than just professional attention to this devastatingly handsome millionaire. But one thing bars Adam from accepting Darci's love: he is intent on discovering the secret of his parent's disappearance, for she possesses the otherworldly abilities needed to help him fight a terrifying mistress of the dark arts. What Darci ends up offering is a gift greater than Adam ever hoped for, for Darci loves with all her heart, and all her soul, forever...."
