Not a lot to report

The mood is gray! The sky is gray and I am really getting gray. Nothing is really wrong I have just had a quiet time I am going through.
I think part of it is the transition to the dark fall days. I would like a climate that was nice year round, but there are always draw backs to that.

I haven't sewn a stitch in days and maybe that is my problem. I think today in between doing some cleaning I need to get some stitching done. I am finally starting to feel better and it has taken it's toll on me. Two weeks of coughing is more than enough to say you are whipped.

Thanksgiving is coming up and I need to get prepared for it. So far about 15 are coming. Haven't heard from all of the family yet so time will tell. We are doing the day afterwards so the kids can see all their grandparents. I will make sandwiches and finger food so it isn't two days of stuffing their faces.

We got all the tiling done and the trim work will be placed in place today. I really like it and it makes the room look more finished in my estimation.

Hope everyone is in good health and getting in the mood for holiday festivity. Chris

I think we all have those blah days, especially going into the Holiday season. When I have those, I try to pull out some bright fabric and make up a quick little project. Nothing feels better than a finished project. Have you ever made up one of those small mug rugs / snack mats? You could maybe make a few of those up for kids stocking stuffers.... I like to put them with a mug filled with goodies. Just a thought of something that tends to give me a little lift.....

I think you deserved a day or 2 to just admire the tile work and how much it changes the living room. It must feel like a whole new room!
