*shaking head in a daze*  Where did that wagon go?  I think I fell off…I haven’t blogged in a few days.  OOPS.  I have been drinking LOTs of water though.  And I haven’t had a Dr Pepper in 16 days, 11 hours, 22 minutes, and 32…33…34…lol….um….I haven’t missed it at all…HA.  Okay, I don’t really remember it down to the second…I was kidding.  BUT I have been drinking water!  At least there’s ONE positive in my favor. 

So Munchkin got strep for Thanksgiving day, so we stayed home.  Have been busy around here…the house is looking decent…been organizing and cleaning and working my little tail off and it’s coming along.  The family is supposed to be here for IMG_9023ewebChristmas this year so we have been trying to get the house in tip-top shape. 

Last couple of days I’ve been working on some Christmas projects and the days have been busy with working on the house and helping friends and working on those projects.  Plus some picture sessions.   I still have to finish the editing on those but I’m working on it. 

Rained something awful today and tonight…hope that’s fixed the drought for awhile.  We were in choir practice tonight and the choir is singing “…even in the darkest night, walk by…” and the power goes out and it’s pitch black inside the church…for a full 5 seconds.  I told KC…HUM…guess God was testing to see if we meant it.  LOL! 

Anyway…I can’t think anymore tonight…I really need to go to bed but I’ve been half watching A Time To Kill while I’ve been working tonight and I love that movie and it’s not over yet…lol…maybe I’ll just go back to bed after I take Munchkin to the bus stop in the morning.  LOL.  

Oh well.  Goodnight!

Going through photos for the year.  Some months I took LOTS of pictures…and then some months…well…I haven’t been so hot on photos this month.  OH WELL. 

It’s making me a little sad though…the puppies were…ahem…PUPPIES just a few months ago. 

And happy, too…the house was in desperate need for a complete paint job just a few months ago…LOL!  Not so much now.  YAY!  =) 

And a few times, I’ve laughed.  Like when I looked at all the PROJECT photos I took this year.  And remembered the day that K-man took a jug out to the recycle bin for me and cheerfully said, “that’s right, mama, reduce, reUSE, REEEcycle!”  Bwahahaha….We do a lot of re-USING around here.  Love it!  =)

It ended up being much later than I thought it was and I’m still not finished, so the blog post that was in my mind is zapped.  I will hopefully come back tomorrow.  LOL. 

Oh and I’m thankful that my sore throat is feeling better.  =)  And that Munchkin’s sore throat is feeling better.  And that so far, no one else is sick.

Well, I was busy yesterday….kinda crazy day…so no post.  *wincing*  I haven’t done so great with the making my bed up habit either.  Oh well.  Can’t win’em all.  =)  turkey-day-ad

Here’s something fun though!  If you are on the lookout for some AWESOME kits, the designer that I create for is having a fantastic sale!  50% off all her kits.  And she’s got a brand spankin’ new one out that is just adorable!  Particularly if you have a bookworm in your house. =) 

All of her stuff is so fun…I love all her kits and this is your chance to stock up on some good stuff!  Don’t miss it! 

Oh and before I go, here’s her latest kit: SweetTomato_Bookish_Preview
And here’s the page I created with it: 

ST-Seedlings6 - book obssession web lg

Reading is TOTALLY one of my obsessions. ;-)  I have GOT to find a good book to read over thanksgiving.  =)

Oooh Dear

It’s 10:26 and my eyelids are WAY heavier than they usually are at this time of night.  :-O  Don’t know why except that maybe it has something to do with the fact that I ran all over the place today and I’m totally tired.  Again.  =) 

Tonight I’m thankful for comfortable furniture.  Particularly a comfortable bed.  Seriously.  All I have to do is remember some of the other places I’ve slept laid down and tossed and turned all night on, and I’m instantly thankful all over again that I have a comfortable cozy warm bed.  =) 

And now I’m going to go have a nice long visit with that particular piece of furniture.  Tomorrow is another busy day…thanksgiving is almost here and I’m not ready.  And we won’t even talk about Christmas.  Yow.  Ya’ll have a good night now, ya hear?  May your dreams be less weird than mine.  ;-)

The Difference Between Boys And Girls

Alternate Title: Horrifying on SO Many Levels

           BOY playing Star Wars           VS         GIRL playing Star Wars
1121102004 1121101958

So tonight, Munchkin had her SW peoples and was playing quietly in church…I looked down and was horrified to see her making her SW peoples making out with each other.  ACK.  IN CHURCH.  Oh the horror.  To make it worse, it was the good little jedi girl and the bad guy bounty hunter!  I just hope it wasn’t the first date!  LOL…the sermon this morning touched on getting physical too fast when dating…maybe that’s where she came up with this idea.  Haha.  I guess it’s better to laugh than cry, right?  
ACW_IA_9994 cad-bane

I tried to comfort myself with the fact that I played with barbie dolls when I was a kid and made them kiss and stuff…so maybe it’s not all that abnormal.  But PLEASE, child!  NOT IN CHURCH.   Although I guess that’s probably not any better than killing all the clones dead with lightsabers…in church.  LOL!  OH YEAH…and let’s not forget…we don’t date the bad guys, okay?

*please excuse the first two photos…i snapped them with my phone.  =)

Yes…hello.  It’s: M-3E-1 

And ME is sleepy.  Feeling much better…hopped in the jacuzzi tonight and let the jets sooth my poor shoulder.  Wasn’t even thinking today and lifted one of the kids up into the truck and AS I did, the thought crossed my mind…that might have been a bad idea.  Oh well.  Tried to rest it as much as possible and the jacuzzi was a lovely fix.  But it made me sleepy. 

Today I’m thankful for a relaxing, restful Saturday (not typical) and that our house has such a nice feature as a jacuzzi.  =)  And now I’m falling asleep, so I’m gonna hit the sack.  Night. 

PS: Sorry for the boring material here lately…maybe my goal for December will be to actually come up with some good material!  LOL.  =)

Go Figure

*sigh*  I just spent a good hour making a new header for the ol’ blog.  And the next thing I know…”blip” …and Photoshop is… (not responding).  Goodbye, last hour.  Oh well.  Guess “Summer” will hang around on my blog for a few more days. 

ANYWAY!  I am so tired…again.  But my shoulder is SO much better today.  I’m seriously trying to rest it.  But there’s just one problem…in a few weeks, I’m gonna have to call my doctor back.  “Um…yes, doc, can you give me a shot in my OTHER arm?”  Cuz…well…I can’t exactly TOTALLY rest…it’s not in my character.  So I’ve just been using my LEFT arm to do everything.  Like moving couches and loveseats and vacuuming and….um.  Moving on…

I AM thankful though, that the shot seems to have helped my shoulder!  Now if I can just rest it for a week so it will STAY better.  That is going to be the tricky part.  =)  Oh, and I’m also thankful that we didn’t lose any furniture off the back of the truck on I-85 in the middle of 3 lanes of heavy traffic, even though AFTER we got off of 85 and stopped to check the load, we realized one of the straps had just totally came undone.  *wincing*  And I didn’t turn into a total basket case during the event either…my knuckles were white and my leg will never be the same, but I managed without totally falling apart.  And our basement is really coming together now…I’m thankful for THAT, too.  =) 

And now, my sore left arm, my crippled right arm, and my sleepy eyes are going to bed…hopefully the rest of me will follow. 

Thursday, November 18, 2010


I hate pain meds.  Today was kinda foggy.  I hate that.  My shoulder is feeling a little better though…settled down a little bit.  Still can’t do much with it, and since it’s my right arm, that makes life a little interesting

Anyway…I don’t think I’m gonna hang around here long tonight…I can’t hardly keep my eyes open.  =( 

Today I’m thankful for God.  I really have no other words to go with that….I’m just thankful.  And I’m thankful that I was able to keep my eyes open long enough to post.  =)  Goodnight.

Not Good

Well, yesterday got away from me.  At 11:40 last night, right as I was curled up in the nice warm bed, drifting into unconsciousness, the thought crossed my mind…oh phooey, I didn’t blog. 

And then I thought.  Nuh, uh…I’ll do double tomorrow.  And that was the last thing I remember.  And then I got up this morning and hit the ground running and blogging just didn’t fit anywhere in there.  So there’s my second failure.  The first being with the habit of making the bed all the way up to pillows.  Fell off that wagon the last few days, too. 

BUT.  I have drank nothing but water for three days now.  It almost killed me today…but I stuck to it.  I had to go BACK to the town down the road for the second time in one day (long story) and I thought, well, there’s at least one bright spot…the place I have to go when I go back is right across from Sonic and it will be right in the middle of happy hour…I can just go pick up a nice half price drink.  So I get there.  I am IN THE DRIVE THRU….in the middle of ordering a drink when I remember…wait a minute…I can’t have any drinks…only water.  So I said…um…never mind…I guess I’ll just take a water.  They probably thought I was nuts.  But I didn’t drink anything except water. 

And today I could have really used a drink.  What a day.  Definite capper of the day was that 3 inch needle in my shoulder and being 4 pounds heavier than my last doctor visit 5 weeks ago.  LOL. 

Oh well.  He did give me a few low dose pain killers, and since they make you drowsy, I had to wait until now to take one….I’m feeling much better now…AND SLEEPY.  So I should hurry with the thankful things before I fall asleep and THIS one doesn’t get posted.  ;-) 

Yesterday, I was thankful that we got our homework done for the training hours needed for our foster care license renewal.  (We were behind and had to get 10 hours – and catch up in one week…lol).  BUT…it’s done.  Right under the deadline.  *whew* 

Today, I’m thankful that I didn’t pass out when the doctor stuck that needle all the way down into my shoulder joint.  Munchkin was watching in horror, so I had to set a fine example of what NOT to do when you get scary needles stuck in ya.  God really helped me though…and I gritted my teeth and smiled at Munchkin while the excruciating pain was going on in my shoulder.  *wincing*  Now, hopefully the shot will make it better so I can be thankful for THAT. =) 

The end.  Zzzzzzz….

Monday, November 15, 2010


I am SO. Tired.  But my brain is still going 90 miles an hour.  Good thing there are no traffic cops in my head. 

Unfortunately my brain is going 90 miles an hour in DOUGHNUTS, so I’m pretty much ready to just fall into bed and forget about it for a few hours.  =)

Tonight I’m thankful for time spent with friends.  Friends who are every bit as close to family as you can get without actually being related.  Friends that make painting fun.  ;-)  Anyways, I love spending time with our friends and that we always have such a good time.   Even if its doing nothing more than having a meal and chatting for a little while…or spending hours painting and chatting…it’s all good.  And I am grateful for all those times.  =)

Light, Cheap, & Random

Strangely enough, I’m not as hungry right now as I thought I’d be…today I have consumed an oatmeal pie and coffee (breakfast); a spicy chicken go-wrap, eight fries, and a dr pepper (lunch); and 2 chicken wraps, 4 fries, and a dr pepper (supper).  And actually, the dr pepper was only because I’m trying to finish up this 2 liter at home so that I won’t have to throw it out…going cold turkey tomorrow.  The goal is a week of WATER ONLY.  *sigh* 

And all I can say is I certainly hope my scale is nicer to me by the end of next week.  If I wasn’t tall, I’d be fat.  Not that I’m huge or anything, but I’m sure NOT loving the extra 10 pounds that showed up in the last 2 weeks.  GRRR.  Scary…plus the bursitis is back and if I have to take that medicine again that makes me super hungry again, I’ll really be in trouble.  That’s what started this whole thing anyway.  =( 

So tonight, after ordering our second drive-thru meal of the day, KC looked at me and said…I could get used to this eating cheap.  I was like, eating cheap?  We’re just NOT EATING, DUDE!  LOL.  Of course that’s cheap!  Hahaha!  We really did do good today though…the four of us ate TWICE on what one fast food meal typically costs.  Hey. Not too shabby.  =) 

Random change of subject…my monster puppies learned how to play fetch with the tennis ball in the last couple of days.  I throw it across the basement and they run to get it and bring it back.  It’s so cool!  =)  Oh and on the not cool side, Obi has regressed and I have to keep track of him all the time now because he sneaks away to poo even after he’s gone outside like a good boy…how do I fix that?  I have caught him in the act and scolded the fire out of him, he only runs loose in the house IF he has pottied outside, and yet, he still does it.  *SIGH*  Annoying. 

Another random change of subject, the basement annoyed me today.  It was a wreck and it made me crazy.  And my poor anal hubby wasn’t bothered a bit.  Which is mainly what bothered me the most because I usually don’t have to be bothered by stuff like that because HE is and he FIXES it before I ever feel annoyed by it.  =) 

SO here’s my thankful thing for today:  I’m thankful my hubby didn’t get (too) angry with me when I went ballistic over the disaster of a family room today and instead he helped me arrange it into a livable (for the time being) set-up.  Yay for a darling hubby. ;-)  Yay also for me getting over my ballistic moment.  ;-)  My hubby says yay for that, too.  Although he doesn’t actually use the word “yay.”  He’s much too sophisticated for that.  LOL.  Oh well.  I love him anyway.  =)

Saturday, November 13, 2010


We went to Ikea today.  Second time in a few weeks and can I just say again….WOW!  Signed the kids into the kiddy play center and went shopping…I LOVE IKEA!  =) 

We got a few things.  And a very large bill.  And lunch.  It was fun.  Except for the large bill.  But we did get quite a few things for that very large bill, and free babysitting for the kids while we looked around, so I guess it was worth it.  LOL.  Oh and…if you got kids…they eat free at IKEA in November…which is really, really cool!  =) 

Tonight I’m thankful that I got all the stuff we bought at IKEA put together before I crashed.  LOL.  Speaking of crashing…*yawn*

Friday, November 12, 2010


You know, it’s one thing to be thankful and it’s completely a whole different thing to try to pick one thing and then put it into words that make sense for a blog post.  This is way more difficult than just blogging every day.  I mean, because while I’m mostly writing about a bunch of seemingly “insignificant” things that I’m thankful for (although, I don’t really think they are insignificant), I don’t want to miss all the important things I’m thankful for (like my hubby, God, our home, our country…you know…) and then on top of that, I feel like if I just write about the one I’m thinking about at that moment, it will seem like I’m placing them by rank or order of importance…and I’m totally not…

Anyway….all that rambling.  And I’m still no closer to deciding what thing I’m thankful for that I want to write about today.  ;-) 

Uh.  So.  Today I’m thankful for my friends.  They are definitely some of those important things that I couldn’t do without!  I have some of the best friends in the entire world…I’m so blessed and I appreciate all of them…in real life and online ones.  =)  =)

Just Thankful

Today, I’m just thankful.  For everything.  I got really, really grouchy this evening because it seemed like nothing was working right and it was just frustrating but regardless if NOTHING ever works right again…I’m still thankful.  God is still good.  It’s sometimes hard to be thankful when animals/things/people/etc are driving you nuts….like right now.  *sigh* 

But I’m still blessed.  At least I’m alive to be annoyed, right?  ;-) 

There’s always a bright side.  And if I were NOT alive to be annoyed, it’d still be alright cuz I’d be with Jesus.  Although, if I have to be honest, I’d have to say I’d like to live down here a little longer.  Even though I’m an alien, I’d still like to live on this planet for a few more years… =)  And be thankful for every minute of those years.  Even the ones where people and animals are making me crazy. 

Amen and goodnight.  =) 

Say Your Words

K-man: (building with lincoln logs) I’m gonna make a Fire Am Partmet.
Mom: A fire Umpartment?
K-man: Nooo.  Say your words!
Mom: A fire DE-partment? (very clearly)
K-man: Thank you.  Yes.  A fire am partment.


Um.  Well.  Right.

KC: Are you going to wash our vehicle this week?
Faith: Um…..
K-man: It’s not a vehicle.  It’s a CRAZY vehicle.
Faith: Crazy vehicle? 
KC: So are you going to wash the CRAZY vehicle?
K-man: Don’t say ve—vecih—vecile--
KC: Vehicle?
K-man: Don’t say it!  Don’t say veh—vecihl—vecichle!
Faith: laughing (because he said it right the first time and now he’s all tongue twisted)
K-man: Stop laughing!  I said QUIT LAUGHING!

Okay then. 

Tonight I’m thankful for our crazy vecichel.  =)  And for my crazy family.  And for laughter.  =)

Not From Around Here

I think I’ve figured out what the problem is…here I am thinking everybody else is just weird.  But I think I’ve got it now.  I think I’m just from another planet.  I adapt to human mannerisms and procedures but not because I feel them.  green-cartoon-alien-clipart-thumb2822032I just do them to appear human.  I find things funny when they are supposed to be serious, but I keep my face straight.  I don’t see humor in things humans find funny, but when everyone is laughing, I smile.  When I cut myself, I ooze chocolate instead of blood.  Actually, I’m kidding…although wouldn’t THAT be nice?  I’m not sweet enough for that though…it’s really tobasco sauce.  LOL. 

I’m still kidding.  But I’m not kidding when I say, sometimes I seriously feel like I’m from a totally different planet.  ;-)

But I could sure use those four additional arms though… ;-)

Anyway…as far as being thankful?  Yesterday I pegged it just right.  Today I’m thankful for Advil.  Although actually it’s Excedrin Extra Strength Back and Body.  ;-) 

Oh and hey, I’m also thankful because CVS had really good sales.  I used $6.00 in extra bucks from two weeks ago, plus $3.00 in extra bucks from today, plus a $5.00 off for buying $15.00 worth of the selected products…so I got 4 bottles of Excedrin (24 count), a bag of halls cough drops, and a bottle of Children’s Triaminic Cough Medicine for $2.09.  I felt pretty good when I left.  =) 

Well, goodnight.  =)   

Monday, November 08, 2010


So much for being rid of bursitis.  Yikes.  But see, here’s the thing.  There are things that must be done.  And I can’t exactly not do them when they are there and must be done and I’m the only one there to get it done. 

I won’t complain though…it’s still not as bad as it was when I broke down and went to see the doc.  Although, when I wake up in the morning, I wouldn’t be very surprised if it was that bad again.  LOL. 

Mostly because I cleaned out the garage today…which involved lifting and carrying some junk downstairs.  But it had to be done because we really need to park in the garage now that it’s getting down to frost season.  =) 

Oh yeah and then I helped the hubby move a loveseat and recliner and cabinet downstairs.  Those things weren’t heavier than a jug of milk…not much anyway.  LOL! 

Tomorrow I may be thankful for Advil. 

But tonight, I’m thankful for a hot shower and Dr. Pepper.  I have drank lots of water today, so I don’t feel real guilty about going right now and pouring meself a glass.  =)  And I’m gonna be thankful every second while I drink it.  ;-)

Fall Back

Today I’m thankful for “fall back” time….it feels like I’ve had an extra hour all day long.  LOL.  I know I really didn’t, but it just felt like it.  =)  First this morning when KC got up at FOUR (that’s because he fell asleep at 8:30 by the new time) and I rolled over and fell back asleep for another 3 hours.  And then again after lunch when I looked at the clock and it said 3:30 and it was actually 2:30.  *grin*  Yeah!  It’s one of the things that helps fall begin to make up for being the reason summer had to disappear.  ;-)

Anyway, today was the first day that I didn’t make the bed up all the way to decorative pillows.  I HAVE stuck to the cleaning at least one thing a day thing though…even while I was sick, so at least I feel good about that one.  =)

And tomorrow’s another day…thank God!

I Own Facebook

Hey…did ya’ll know I own facebook?  Me either.  But according to my MIL, my daughter is POSITIVE that I do. 

Munchkin: “My mom OWNS facebook.”
Mawmaw: “I think you mean she HAS a facebook…and a blog.”
Munchkin: “Yeah, I know about that blog, but my momma OWNS facebook!”


Anyways.  Today, I’m thankful that our pool is CLOSED!  We have spent like hours and hours and hours trying to figure out how to winterize the pump/filter/pipes and KC finally figured out what was wrong.  The seal on one of the important pump parts wasn’t on good…it had stretched out and when KC took it off and very carefully squeezed it back on so the seal was good again, everything just fell into place.  Of course, we still had to spend hours and hours and hours filling up all gazillion and one water bags and stretching the cover over and placing all gazillion bags on the cover…..and it was stinking FREEZING outside and sticking my hands in the water nearly gave me frostbite…well…I’ll stop complaining and just say I’m thankful it’s done.  LOL!

I’m so tired.  My eyes are kinda glazing over.  Tonight is the time change, so it’s really an hour earlier than what my computer says…which is an hour before I usually go to bed anyway.  That means, it’s really TWO hours before my usual bedtime.  And I’m ready to go now.  YIKES.  =)  Oh WELL.  =)  Goodnight anyway.  =)

Friday, November 05, 2010


Today I’m thankful for health.  Even when I’m sick (although, thank the Lord, I AM feeling better now), I’m still thankful for overall good health.  I’m also thankful for Advil Cold and Sinus and Alkaseltzer Cold fizzy tabs. 

“I’m not a big fat panda!  …I’m THE big fat panda.” 

Sorry.  I know that was random.  I just got sidetracked watching KungFu Panda that KC turned on to fall asleep to…lol.  He makes like he’s going to watch a movie and then I get all comfy on my computer and I look over and he’s sleeping and I end up watching the movie.  LOL.  My favorite line from that movie is the little kungfu master getting all frustrated with the Panda and sitting there going, “I-i-i-in-in-inner peaccccce, i-i-inner peace…”  I use that line a lot.  LOL.  ;-) 

And now that I’ve dropped that little bit of random along with my thankful thing for the day, I’m going to bed.  Night. =)  

Thursday, November 04, 2010

A Few Words

Tonight I’m thankful that my hubby is back home from his overnight business trip and that the family made it through a day without being sick.  Well…at least being puke sick.  LOL.  I still feel crummy but I’m not gonna complain about it. 

Unfortunately though I’m not much on words tonight.  Head hurts and can’t think straight.  But I’m still thankful.  =)

Wednesday, November 03, 2010

Hoo Boy

Today I’m thankful that K-man’s aim has improved since the last time he was sick and he (with the exception of a few drops) hit the toilet/bucket both times when he puked.  That is a miracle.  I’m also thankful because I don’t feel good today either and I don’t think I could have handled spew.  I’m pretty sure God knew that. 

Here’s hoping tomorrow finds us all better and Munchkin doesn’t get it. 

Here’s hoping for a brighter tomorrow…tomorrow.  ;-) 

Tuesday, November 02, 2010


IMG_8488ewebWell, today I’d have to say I’m thankful for our son.  He’s been with us for years (more than three actually), but today it was finished.  Today the official decree was signed at the courthouse…it’s over…no more worrying if the appeals will be won, if the termination will be overturned…it’s settled.  I am so happy! 

K-man never knew of the battle and the only name he knows is ours…but we know…and we also see how far he’s come in the last three years.  He’s a good little man…and I’m so glad that now both of our kids are forever!  =) 

Oh I’m also thankful today for chicken soup.  Woke up this morning with a stuffed up head and it progressed to achy chills…joy.  Chicken soup always makes me feel better though.  =)  I got some out to fix for lunch today and Munchkin (who was off today for teacher workday) asked, “Who’s sick?”  LOL.  I was like…um…sniiiifff… sigh….”me.”  “Oh,” she says, “can I have some soup, too?”

Happy November!

alwaysfaith - creepy*If you came by to look at my October Photo Hunt Pictures, and want a little shortcut there, you can just click here. ;-) I’m just nice like that. LOL. ;-) ;-)*

Well, they say it takes three or four weeks to make a habit. (I’m of the opinion that it is based on it being a GOOD habit you’re trying to create. Personally, I just THINK about a bad habit and it’s suddenly second nature.) But anyway, if THEY are correct, then blogging daily should be a habit now, right? I was looking on lifehack at a list of tricks to build new habits…it’s inspiring. Maybe every month I should add a new habit (a good one) to my repertoire.

Oh and THEY also say that if you build a habit and then break it, it is MUCH easier to pick it back up in a shorter amount of time. So for November, I think I’ll continue a habit, pick up an old habit, and start a new one. Hmmm…I think that could be doable.

So for JUST the month of November:

  1. November will be my Thankful Month. A daily post that highlights something (or someone) I’m thankful for. (continue a habit)
  2. Make my bed up all the way to decorative pillows (instead of just pulling up the bedspread) every day. (pick up an old habit)
  3. Clean ONE thing in the house every day. Do it without thinking of all the other things that need doing, which makes me overwhelmed, which makes me procrastinate. (start a new habit)

Maybe by New Year’s resolution time, I will be perfect and won’t need to make any resolutions. HAH. Not likely. LOL!

Although, I have to say, since the end of summer and things calmed down a bit with our foster kid situations, I have actually gotten a handle on this years ONLY new year’s resolution. LOL! I just had to read back to my first January post to figure out what it was…so doing it was unintentional…haha!

Another current habit I’m going to continue is participation in the Photo Scavenger Hunts… ;-) For November and December, there is going to be a 10 item list. Here is this month’s list:

  1. Home Sweet Home
  2. Thankful
  3. Family
  4. I Ate This- Thanksgiving Edition (if you don’t live in U.S then pick something you ate in November)
  5. A Turkey
  6. Something Hand-Made
  7. Something Hot
  8. Something Cold
  9. Something Orange
  10. Anything Goes (Any photo you take in November!)

To join, go here and enter your name in the linky.

Oh and before I go, today I’m thankful for chocolate. I picked something simple today since this post is already long enough. ;-) And now I’m going to go eat some. Goodnight! =)
