2.  Potato Soup and a apple pie for two.
3.  Apple Pie for the Clubhouse party.
4.  On the balcony with sunlight in my hair.
5.  Vanilla Latte at MiMi's.

    1. I'm finally learning how to make collages in this Mac. Very different that my old computer. Maybe all pumpkins are orange on the inside. HaHa.
      I'm getting hooked on making "mini" pies.

  13. I'm glad I don't live too close to you. After reading about all the desserts you are making I'd be tempted to come over and eat them. Then I would weigh even more than I do now! Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I know you are going to be busy baking. Your family sure chose the right one to bring the desserts.

    1. A couple of the items will be from Costco...so that helps with the time element. But I do love to bake and expect the dessert table to be a busy station all day Thanksgiving. Hugs.

    1. Thanks Bonnie. We love our little home here in the Villa. I lived in old rundown parsonages...and I loved them and was OK with that....but God has chosen to give me a pristine clean and modern apt. with garbage disposal and dishwasher. Never had either, and on top of that, a beautiful balcony. I'm blessed and I know it, and I'm thankful. You are one of my blessing too. Hugs.

  15. And a very happy thanksigving to you too dear Auntie Wanda! :) I am sure that whatever you made turned out superb...as indeed did Alexandra's cherry pie tarts. Small and superb with freshly grated orange zest added. It was a beautifual day here today--snowed in the most stunning magical way. Ahhh....As we reflect on those things to be thankful for I just want to add how thankful we are for your support adn love from afar, your prayers over the year too. you are example of how a woman can live and love and find the best in things. Keep it up, Wanda. you are and will be richly rewarded. I am convinced of that. Such a good spirit.
