T Stands for Thanksgiving for my Health

Hebrews 13:15  "By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name." 

Good evening!  I hope the ones in the U. S. had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  As it is still November I am posting another thing for which I am thankful.  I am thankful for my health!  Sometimes I hurt, like tonight, as I have been unpacking decorations, putting up the tree.  All of this took a lot of lifting, twisting, stooping and other contortions of the body.  But I can walk, talk, hear, see, and craft!  I am thankful that I can put up our tree!  It is lit and some of the decorations are on it, the china cabinet is decorated and part of the upper cabinets in the kitchen have decorations on them.  When we moved here six months ago,  I had gotten rid of a lot of stuff.  So, I will be going to Hobby Lobby tomorrow to get some poinsettias.  I think I threw them out last year because they looked so ratty.   So here is a photo of my Christmas teapot for Bleubeard & Elizabeth over at Altered Book Lover for T Stands for Tuesday.  We link  up with her and our post has something drink related, like a teapot! :)

Also, today, I am linking up with Tag Tuesday! We were to make a tag choosing items from  a tic tac toe board of items.  I chose stenciling, punch or die cut, and lace.  My stenciling was a failure!
But, I think it still looks okay on this tag. The die cut is a TH stamp and die, and the life adventure is a stamp in that set, too. It is the first time I have used it.  The cities stamp is from Mrs. O'Leary's Artful Illusions.

I wanted you to see the cities.

And I love this sentiment!

I will be making another tag.  I like this challenge.  Maybe a Christmas one.  I probably will use this tag on a scrap page.  What do you do with your tags?

Thank you for stopping by!  Waving to the T-Gang!

T Stands For Thanksgiving For My Husband

Hebrews 13:15  "By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name."

Here it is time for our drink related post for T Stands For Tuesday, over at Altered Book Lover with Elizabeth and Bleubeard.  Hello to all the T Gang!
      Again, there is so much I am so thankful for this entire year!  God is so good and faithful,  even when I am not.  I am thankful for my husband, especially when he is so good to me.  This past week-end,  I went to a four day Scrap Retreat, while he stayed home and made 10 loaves of pumpkin bread!  Isn't he good?  And, he had dinner ready for me when I got home Sunday evening! But,  I had a wonderful time, and got a lot done.  In fact I got my entire Maine vacation album done, 20 pages!  Here is a photo of all of them, but the ones one the top step don't show up very well.  I didn't realize that until too late.

Since I started doing these drink related posts for T Stands For Tuesday, I have taken more photos of eating out.  I never did that before.  Then, a couple of times I haven't posted and I have these photos building up.  I don't know what I have posted and what I haven't.  But I wanted to share these with you.  Recently, we had to go back on the side of town where we used to live (20 miles across) to run some errands, so we visited one of our favorite places over there.
It has been around for years and is locally owned.  They have really no atmosphere, but are heavy on the comfort food!

My husband and father used meet here for lunch when we were first married.

They have lots of roosters for their d├ęcor.

Comfort food!  They always give you homemade rolls and homemade cinnamon rolls, and then I even ordered bread pudding for one of my two sides!  I took half of this home and the desserts!

More roosters!

I always love looking at the old photos in the lobby. 

Cool photos aren't they?

Well,  thanks for stopping by!  For those in the U.S, have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

T Stands For Thanksgiving For The Seasons

Hebrews 13:15  "By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name."

Here we are already celebrating T Stands For Tuesday!  I have decided that T will stand for Thanksgiving the whole month of November instead of just that week.  In fact like our November Bible verse says, we are to be continually giving thanks!  I am so thankful for God's wonderful world.  This past week I have enjoyed the changing of his seasons.  Where we live in a fairly new addition,  there aren't a lot of trees like where we formerly lived.  So, I am sharing with you today the view out my window. This was before the wind blew all the leaves off the tree.

 For What's On Your Work Desk? Wednesday I show my desk below!  This is my computer desk, but I do a lot of work here, when I am not turned around at my craft desk. When my stamping buddie comes over , I pack away my laptop and she sits here and crafts.  Check out the other deskers over at Stamping Ground, where Julia hosts this occasion.

ow all those leaves are on the lawn! But it was pretty. I enjoyed my view while it lasted!  But here is a photo of what the trees looked like in November where we formerly lived.  One of the reasons we downsized!  We love trees, but with the upkeep, trimming, leaves, disease, etc., it just became too much for us.

We took a day trip this past week-end and I will share my two photos with you!  I am so bad about remembering to take photos, yet I go to scrapbook them, I have way too many!  

 It turned out to be a glorious day Saturday!  We drove to Quivira Wildlife preserve. We saw birds, ducks, gulls, and even hiked a trail.  See that little hut out there, we walked down to that. Then we drove all through the area.  Just gorgeous.

On the way home we stopped here for lunch.  And no photos!  They have wonderful comfort food!  We brought home their gigantic cinnamon rolls!  We warmed those up for Sunday's breakfast.  So, for Elizabeth at Altered Book Lover for T Stands For Tuesday, where we share drink related posts, I took a photo of our Sunday breakfast!

This is a luncheon size, not pie, plate.  The two rolls were over a half pound each, because the package said 18 ounces. I am trying to give you an idea of how large they are.  My husband says lets split one today and one tomorrow, but no, I wanted the whole roll.  We both ate them, just fine, but weren't hungry for dinner!

Thanks for stopping by, be sure and check out the rest of the T-Gang over at Bleubeard's & Elizabeth's at Altered Book Lover.  Sorry this is so late on Tuesday, but the good news is it is early for Wednesday!  I was gone all day.  I started it before I left early this morning and couldn't get it done before I left!    Happy T Day!  Thanks for stopping by.
