Nov 23
I an thankful for webinars.
During the past several months I have average at least 2 webinars
a week, usually more.  I have learned more than I could 
have physically done because there is no way I could have traveled to 
NJ, NY, GA, MO, MA and FL and afforded all these lectures.

I have a semi-finish.
November is complete for the Mystery Sampler 2020

The empty spot is left for December.

The lower right corner is the November area.
There are actually 6 "spots" in November.

Next up will hopefully be a few smaller pieces that I am trying 
to finish off before the end of the year.

 Playing catch-up

Nov 17 - I am grateful that I have a good, functioning computer.

Nov 18 - I am grateful for the internet - how else would I "talk" to everyone.  Hard to believe that everyone used to wait on the mail to arrive to hear from family far away or those long-distance charged for the phone calls. 

Nov 19 - I am grateful for a great selection of teas available and the reasonableness of the prices and thank heavens no extra taxes.  I really love tea - never have been a coffee drinker.

Nov 20 - I am grateful for coffee - not for me but for my husband.  It makes him bearable in the mornings.

Nov 21 - I am grateful that my husband has a great doctor during this pandemic.  

Nov 22 - I am grateful for my kitties - Max (the elder) and Hunter (who still thinks he is a kitten and tiny - haha).  Both are rescues.

 Nov 16th - Today I am grateful that I know how to cook.  Not that I always want to cook but having the ability to do so expands what we eat in an environment where we can't go out to dine.  I admit it - I miss going out for a meal.

 Way behind in posting.

Day 10 - I am grateful for my grandkids - all so wonderful and all so different.

Day 11- I am grateful for each and every veteran, specially my son and both of my parents and a long list of people going back hundreds of years.

Day 12 - I am grateful for my love of genealogy.  It, among other things, have kept me sane in 2020.

Day 13 - I am grateful for Fridays - even if they fall on the 13th.

Day 14 - I am grateful for a roof and the walls that keep my home dry and warm.

Day 15 - I am grateful for my love of needlework, it has also kept me sane this year.

And with that it is SAL reporting time.  Some days time drags on and yet other days fly by before you know it.

last time you saw Klimt

And as of last night:

Day 5 - I am grateful for my back yard where I can spend many quiet moments of relaxation.
