I am doing much better to day. For one thing I am a redhead again. That always helps. Okay, I’m not red like some of you guys. I never used to mess with my hair color. What God gave me was good enough. However, since God has now decided to change that color I assumed all bet are off. While He seems to prefer the gray and white shades, I’m going with the reddish brown. Eventually I will let Him have his way but I am just not quite ready.
I want to tell you a bit about our Thanksgiving and the family we celebrate with. Nick’s parents and brothers and sisters are fantastic. His mother is an unbelievable cook. He gave the Thanksgiving menu in his comment yesterday. I think the only thing he left out were the delicious backed apples. The strange thing is this is a typical Sunday lunch. His mom never knows how many will be there. All of her kids live here in town. Now before you state humming the theme to Deliverance, they are all college educated professionals. Usually she has somewhere between 12 to 24 for Sunday lunch. We always have 2 meats, 6-7 veggies, fruit in season, 2 types of bread (home made) and at least 2 deserts. Did I mention she also goes to Sunday school and church each week and we always eat before 1:00? When she is not cooking, she and my father-in-law work two gardens, she does tons of canning giving lots of it away to all of us. She also makes quilts. Nick and one brother were up last week where their dad joined them in cutting fire wood since the wood stove is their primary source of heat. But what really blows my mind is that this dear lady who probably doesn’t weight a hundred pounds is 82 years old and her wood chopping husband is 85. Maybe that is why Nick is so special; he does come from good stock!
