Obama Sign

Someone stole my Mom's Obama sign. We went and got them on Friday and she put hers out on Saturday and by Sunday morning it was gone. I hope it was just moved to another place and not destroyed. Mine amazingly is still up.
Haven't been reading much. I watch MSNBC at night and end up falling asleep to it. As soon as the election is over I will get back to reading. I just can't seem to concentrate on any book. I don't know why.
Snow here yesterday. We don't have much on the ground at my house, but other areas were hit hard. I love the first snow. I love when it sticks for the first time and looks white, clean and fresh. I love the cold.
I hope everyone has noticed my new ribbon on the sidebar. If you click on it you will go to www.cysticfibrosis.com and there you will find info on CF and also ways that you can help. It's a terrible disease and we need to find a cure.

Thursday Things

1. I only use salt on french fries and broccoli
2. I have never made a pie from scratch
3. I love notebooks
4. I cried when I saw my cousin Jessica's wedding photos
5. I love PG Tips tea

Well I just couldn't do it. I gave up on The Likeness by Tana French. I read 150 pages and still really didn't care about the story so back to the library it went. I don't usually do that I try to read every book I start, however a wise friend of mine told me life's to short to read books you don't like. So now I'm reading The Glass of Time by Michael Cox. What about you do you read every book you start?
So what's every ones plans for Thanksgiving? Mine was to spend it with my Mom, then I found out she was going to my stepbrothers. We have not been invited. So Kristie took pity on us and invited us to their house for Thanksgiving. So sweet of her. Ray of course is fine with turkey sandwiches and staying at home. I think even if we are invited we'll go to Kristie's. It's the point that Miriam never thinks of us as family, never thinks to call and invite us until someone mentions us. Which frankly hurts. As I've already stated in a previous post Richard's children are my family. I love them and they will always be a part of my life. I have always felt Miriam likes to make an issue of the fact there is no blood relation. Likes to throw it in my face. Which is fine I know how they feel and that bond will always be there.
I've been reading up on the election and I can't believe there are people who don't know who they are voting for. That one speech or one news report would sway someone one way or the other. I have been firm on my choice since the beginning and nothing that has been reported or that I've seen has changed my mind, if anything it's strengthened my resolve. Obama , baby Obama. What are your feelings?

Thursday Things

1. I can't watch John McCain ( should just call him blinky)
2. I made real mashed potatoes for the first time Monday night ( I love Betty Crocker)
3. I don't like to cook
4. I have stubby fingers
5. I would love to own a book store

Ray's doing better. He talked to his brother on the phone last night and that always makes him feel better, even if Ray called him an old wash woman. Dennis should be home soon and after a rest back to work. That will make it much better.
I tried to watch the debate last night, however after about 15 mins. I couldn't take McCain's faces and his constant blinking (he might want to get that checked). So I printed off the transcript and I will read it tonight. It won't change my mind about who to vote for, but I would like to know what was said.

My Honey

Poor Honey he's having a rough week and I don't know how to help him. He's stressed at work. His color was not good last night when I got home from work. He's pale and just looks overwhelmed. I guess the only way for me to help him is to make a nice meal and get him to relax.

Thursday Things

Well we're back and this is the first time I've had to blog about our trip. We had a wonderful time. Liz is an amazing hostess and a wonderful cook (this I gained 5 pounds). We didn't do much except relax and go to Bowling Green a few times. We mostly just hung out with the family and chilled. We did go to a Sorghum Mill run by the Mennonites. That was really interesting. They don't use any electric, they use 6 two horse teams to run the chopper and then a wood oven to melt it down . We tasted the Sorghum it tastes like molasses only lighter. I didn't buy any as I'm not much of a baker. We did buy homemade bread and jelly. We didn't do a whole lot of sightseeing like I said, but we did have a great relaxing time. Ray wants to go back next year. That gives Liz a whole year to get used to Beau coming back:)
On to TT
1. I don't like other peoples vacation videos (pictures are great, videos are bad)
2. I love my king size bed
3. I love McLeod's Daughters
4. I have a new stainless steel sink (didn't cost me anything)
5. I love sausage gravy and biscuits

I didn't read as much as I thought I would so not much to report there. I finished Borderlands. I liked it, I look forward to reading the next one. Then I read Murder in the Marais. That was OK. It was a little hard to follow, however I like the characters and will read more of this series. Now I'm reading Silent in the Grave by Deanna Raybourn. I'm not to far in yet, but I do like the characters. I also finished listen to Fractured by Karin Slaughter. That was good. I haven't read and of her other books, however now I think I will.
