  1. Well, how about a teaser? This is my daughter's. This is the only stocking I've made that included clear sequins which are sewn on and they show up as a twinkle of snow flakes on the window pane.
  2. @bennybearYour stockings are so good! Very pretty! I make stockings for my family and all 10 love and display them every year. They are counted cross stitch. Maybe I'll show a few photos of them as the season gears up.
  3. We love Norway! A great replacement cruise to choose.
  4. I am so sorry to hear the news about your sister. I will for sure add her to my prayers. @HflorsSuch wonderful news about DD and DS and family being negative for Covid. As a mother of course you were worried about them all. And about the puppy, what a major disappointment. Just know that when you do get your puppy, it will be the right one for you. It was meant to be. My granddog is half King Charles Cavalier spaniel and half poodle. So adorable, and quite the hunter in the backyard. She's always snooping around for a mouse, mole/vole or bird. Keeps life interesting! 🙂
  5. Thanks for letting us know. I'm enjoying looking at the Disney ship. We've been on two Disney cruises with our son and family. Lots of fun! @ger_77 Everyday is elastic waist pants day for me! I like to be comfortable while sitting at home avoiding coronavirus! @Hflorswonderful news about DD testing negative. Hoping for the same for your DS and family. Leftovers for us as well. One turkey breast makes a lot of leftovers when you have so many side dishes with your holiday meal. Excited to say my DD is driving from Ohio to Missouri today to vi
  6. Happy Thanksgiving all! Like a lot of you we have the turkey breast and side dishes cooking right now. Just the two of us here. My daughter reminded me of turkey preparation at her house last Christmas. DH loves to prepare the turkey so that was his job. Our well behaved grand dog 😇 sat patiently beside him waiting for a bit of turkey or stuffing to fall on the floor. So cute! Shutterfly reminded me we were in Venice for Thanksgiving in 2018. We celebrated with some pizza and gelato at our favorite shops near the Rialto Bridge. We boarded Pacific Princess for a transatlan
  7. I couldn't "like" your post with news like that! I am so sorry about your accident and hope it heals quickly with little pain. Let David and Shawn wait on you a little bit, okay?
  8. That's strange, I just finished typing up a Christmas newsletter to send to friends in my cards, which I plan to start writing out this week. We all have the same idea. 😉
  9. I was in 8th grade when Pres. Kennedy was shot. Not sure what class it was (math?) but there was a collective gasp when the news was announced. Then we all started glancing at each other to see if others had heard the same thing you did. It was a very sad time in our lives and hopefully we never have to experience anything like that ever again. @HflorsI am sorry to hear about your children and families being so ill. I will be praying they are all going to be fine and that they don't have to experience Covid. You're right about feeling helpless at times like this. When my daug
  10. Jacqui, looks like you can change our Oct. 10, 2021 Grand Africa cruise on the Zaandam, to exactly one year later. When it was cancelled yesterday we opted for the Oct. 2022 rebooking. I'm wondering if that cruise will ever happen. This is the third try for HAL. No news from Princess on our Aug. and Sept. 2021 Island Princess cruises but will let you know as time goes by if there are any changes there. When you look at flights then the airlines tell you there will be a 14 day quarantine once you arrive in England. That won't work, that's for sure!
  11. @dfish You have some lovely parks and hiking trails in the Kent area. Nice for all the walkers in your community. @rafinmdyou can probably take me off the prayer list. My niece, her husband and children in Missouri have recovered enough to go back to work/school. She has some recurring headaches and her husband is coughing, but the children are fine since they seem to recover faster. My daughter's ex in-laws in Ohio are all over the place in their Covid experience. Her ex sister-in-law has asthma and was in the hospital 5 days and still has some breathing issues. Her ex MIL a
  12. I'm happy to hear of the negative Covid tests! Great news! More good thoughts going out to Tom in ICU. I have several Hallmark Christmas movies on my DVR to catch up on. DH complained about the music on them (??) and my son bought me some wireless headphones and a transmitter so I can watch anything I want now with the TV muted and I can hear every word of my programs perfectly without bothering DH. He prefers reading rather than TV shows, so we are both happy. Where there is a will, there is a way!
  13. I have to laugh at the ecard comments. My DH's sister sends them to our two children, their spouses and our six grandchildren. Then when they don't open them she asks me to tell them they should open the ecards! I hate that! When DS had his birthday last week he opened it just for me, so I wouldn't have to be bothered. By the way, I haven't been to my favorite card store, Hallmark, all year. You can go to their website, view cards that you may need for birthdays, anniversaries, sympathy, etc. and place an order. I usually save up a couple month's worth of card needs and ord
