Happy Thanksgiving Turkey Day... .

Gobble, Gobble, Gobble -- Happy Thanksgiving to all you fabulous Bloganistas and those of you in training -- also, to my friends in other countries who do not celebrate this great holiday as is the tradition here in The United States of America.   It is full steam ahead this week getting the Turkey ready and the oh so good Stuffing and Gravy, Green Bean casserole, Sweet Potatoes topped with Marshmallows, Pumpkin-Cheesecake, Pumpkin Pie and all the trimming etc., ready for this upcoming Thursday, 27th November.  Those of you who are not familiar with the tradition of this Holiday, why not Google, or DuckDuckGo it - the history really is very interesting and goes back to the arrival of the British and European Pilgrim Settlers here in the New World.

Last Blog I told you I was making a tray of stuffed shells, so here is a picture of them before they went in to the oven.  They were so tasty and Bob was a happy camper when he helped himself to seconds.
Not too much to say today so I'll have "Sweetie Pie" here to wave you all adieu - so to those of you here in the States and all U.S. ex-pats living abroad let me, Bob and Corey wish you all a very Happy, Safe and Blessed Thanksgiving - take time to think on all the big and small things we need to give thanks for.  All-in-all when we look at what's happening in the World, we need take a moment and be Thankful for what we have and we can find this best in our Families and Friends.  Also, those of you in other countries who follow my Blog, please let me include you as my Friends - add your pictures and names.  So, for the time being, cheerio, toodle pips, au revoir and all that jazz.  Again,  Happy Thanksgiving.
Love to all, "E"

Precursor to Thanksgiving... .

Well, Hello to all you fabulous Bloganistas and those of you in training... .
By now you've probably come to the conclusion that with me and my Blog, that it is either feast or famine.  Not to worry, just keep on checking-in with me -- never too controversial, but I'll always try to keep it interesting.

How do you like Fred and Ginger???   I named them after Fred Astair and Ginger Rogers (you know, they were movie actors in fancy dancing  movies of the '40's, 1940's that is, when you could sit through a film with your Granny and not be embarrassed) -- by now some of you know that I collect Salt & Pepper Shakers.  This time I decided to make these for my collection -- aren't they adorable?  I have them sitting on my kitchen windowsill so that I can see them when I am being industrious in the sink.  I have some other pieces in for firing and you'll see them soon.
Back in August when I celebrated my birthday, my sister and brother-in-law, knowing how I enjoy my garden, bought a one-way ticket for my own traveling garden gnome, whom I have named "Barney" here's his picture to the right.   
He enjoyed the Summer weather out on my front porch keeping an eye to some of my Cacti (I know it's not Cactuses) but somehow that sounds better.  
I hear he likes to travel around the Globe, but since he only had a one-way ticket purchased for him, he's stuck in Rennerdale.  Now that the colder days are nudging their way in, he's safely ensconced in the front hallway amongst the plants, where he is happiest.  Handsome li'l Bugga isn't he?

Okay, feast or famine needs to get a move on - for dinner tonight I'm making Stuffed Shells in a red meat sauce - no I don't have any pics just yet - maybe if the casserole looks half decent I'll take a pic of it and add it in my next Blog which will probably come around Thanksgiving the last Thursday in November. 
So, it's time for me to say  cheerio, toodle pips, ta ra, au revoir, arrivederci and all that jazz.  Corey send his love to you all, oh yes, he's sleeping on the sofa, really... .  "E"
