A Happy Thanksgiving!

When my sister, Sherill, was alive, she always used to have the whole family over for Thanksgiving. It was potluck-style, but she’d assign a dish for each person to bring. The table was long and the conversation was boisterous. Thanksgiving has slowly dwindled down to family members having their own celebrations. It’s kind of sad in a way, but Mom made it a little happier for Mark and me today…

Liberty Grove Historical Society Vintage Market – 2

Today was the last of two Vintage Markets held at the Liberty Grove Historical Society Museum. Last month, I tried to sell some of my Halloween kits; this month I tried to sell Thanksgiving and Christmas kits. I also carried over my Wanda’s Journey line and sold two of those, and I took a bunch of wooden hoop frames and sold several of them. I only made about half as much as I did last month. 🙁 One plus is that I finally figured out how to use the Square I bought for taking payments through my Etsy website. It was kind of nifty!

Out and about

This weekend was the Marina Fest in Sister Bay, and BACA (Bikers Against Child Abuse) had a booth there. Yesterday morning, Mark and I had to get up an hour earlier than usual so that he could set up for it. He rode his motorcycle there and I brought the pickup with the tent and tables. On the way there, it poured down rain and he wasn’t wearing a helmet, so he got soaked! He was going to set the tent up by himself and it would be two hours before the rest of his group showed up. I came back later to have breakfast with him at the Firemen’s Pancake Breakfast. And then, yesterday afternoon, he took off for an overnighter at Reedsburg, WI where there was to be a Legacy Ride today.

Bonfire

At the Welcome Center today, my boss brought me a bag of apples that someone had picked off their tree. Most of them were wormy or bruised, but I cut the bad parts out and made a big batch of applesauce. I squeezed lemon into it and didn’t add any sugar. Mark and I like tart things and we each had a small bowl of it while it was still hot. It was so good!

From…Tucson, AZ

On Tuesday, the 13th, I got my second COVID shot, and as anticipated, I felt crappy on Wednesday. I had such a bad migraine that I ended up in the ER Wednesday afternoon to get an IV. That took time out of our schedule of getting ready to go home. Also, Mark had a roof job that just ended yesterday.
