It's Bright and Sunny Today, and I Have Lots of Energy
I have decided to have Thanksgiving here this year. I thought maybe my time for having big holidays was over, but not wanting to let go quite yet...I decided to give it a whirl. I don't know how many of our family are coming yet, but we will have a table full I'm sure. My posts will be full of preparations for this special day.
We went to Mass last night. It was All Saint's Day...a Holy day of obligation for we Catholics. The Church was full and we had a beautiful service...the music making it so beautiful.I always get my Catholic "fix" so to speak at Dawn's blog. http://dawnathome.typepad.com/by_sun_and_candlelight/ She is a young mother, who homeschools her three sons. She follows the Catholic year with her teachings and makes it so interesting for even oldsters like me. I read her blog most every morning.
Today, I have designated to cleaning the chairs in the house. When I told Joe what I was doing...he said, "Wow...that sounds interesting...I'll be you can't wait!' I laughed and thought about it a while but, all joking aside, I am going ahead with it. We have so many wooden chairs with spindles that need polishing and dusting once in a while. They all have cushions tied on them and those need vacuuming. Also the underneath wooden supports will have to be dusted and polished. So that's on my agenda today.It will probably take me most of the late morning and early afternoon. Wow....next thing on my list are the chandeliers.
I had better get started now...I've already started doing housework and stopped to write this post. I write them most everyday...while sitting here the words flow. Nothing is saved for another day...everything right off the tip of my tongue as it occurs to me. So somedays it it good and some days I might want to delete...but I never do. Goodbye my loyal readers...till tomorrow.
