- I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

Chit Chat and this n that
Hello Neighbors !
Bright & Breezy here today in NE Ohio, I feel like spring cleaning, it's so nice to open up the windows after the chilly weekend. I love a breezy day. I 've got a whole chicken thawing in the fridge, and today it's going in the oven to roast, and soon it will smell wonderful in the homestead and about the neighborhood as the windows are open, at least for now.
I'll roast that bird, and then I'll soak that bird to get all the flavor for a soup stock, whatever meat is left, tomorrow is Chimichonga night with the leftover meat. You all ever do that too? It is a great meal stretcher 3-4 meals off of one chicken.
I've already started gathering the ingredients for Thanksgiving dinner, I found a bag of cranberries for $1.79, that's a good price, usually around here they are 2.00 and up, until after Thanksgiving. Do you make your cranberries from scratch too? My oldest likes to make the Cranberries sauce. I buy at least one item each grocery trip, oh and I got the canned milk for the punkin pie. Maybe this year I'll make the cream cheese pumpkin roll up.
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.
I've been thinking about sewing something, we did find some material at a fabric store in Amish, Berlin Ohio Zincks, it has Tanks all over it, not my particular cup of tea, but then, I'm not a 13 year old boy, we've been through the cars, and star wars, and now it's tanks. Dad and Son are going camping this weekend with the Scouts, so it will be a good time for me to do some sewing, I'm not great at it, but I can make a simple pair of casing curtains. I found some other lovely fabric, I have no idea what I'll do with it, but I'll figure out something.
Well, Laundry awaits me.
Enjoy your day whatever it holds for you :)
