My goodness, the year is rushing ahead and I feel stunned that it is this far ahead! I never had time to enjoy each and every month, and here I am all decorated for Thanksgiving, and preparing to cook for my wonderful family – which should number about 15 or so this year. It will be a cozy crowd. At […]
