Harvest Blessings

As we gather 'round our table today we are grateful for our many blessings.
 
Each year we harness old traditions and embrace new ones. New for this year was our fresh turkey...and I do repeat...fresh!
 
We braved the rainy hills of Southern Arizona to visit Sonoita.


A kind family greeted us.



Unsuspecting turkeys greeted us as well!

 
This is where it gets dicey!


 
Fast forward to what is more familiar with only a few quills left.
 
 
The family at work to provide our provisions.

This was the yummiest bird we have ever cooked!
 
 
Simple blessings.
 
Our youngest blessing in the latest project off the needles.
Peace and joy to you all.

WELLING WITH GRATITUDE

 
 
Fall has been very busy in our house...it almost looks like we live on a farm but alas we are grateful for the farmers that have grown this crop of beautiful vegetables.
For a mere $ 10 you can get 60 pounds of veggies
 
Have your recipes ready to prepare large volumes! 
Please come Saturday, December 7th at 8:00 AM
Market on the Move.
 
 


It never ceases to amaze me that we get bumper crops of something different from our desert garden every year. This year it is pinecones! We recruited a special buddy to harvest them for us.






How does a little girl get ready for her first tea party. Practice of course.
Stay tuned for the big event!

 
 
Off the needles for a new itty bitty.
 
 
Hello sewing machine!

 
Flower Power!
No idea yet what I will do with these but they make me happy!
 
 
Yes we still attend the occasional political dinner to fundraise for our favorite Arizona Congressmen.
Here we are with David Schwikert (pictured far right)

Life is a race. Embrace it, pace it, but finish with all your heart!
I thought it was uncanny that my race number was my age...only backwards!
