Thank you

My sister gave me a jar to start homemade kombucha!  Do you have any suggestions on what to add to it?  I want to start with ginger and lemon.  Maybe blueberry next?
We fed a friend's cat, while she was out of town.
I'm thankful for my family.  Cozy home and hot tea.  Ice skating.
Sunshine.  Fresh milk.  My nieces and nephews.
It's been 17 good years married to my dear husband!  Ups and downs, but I wouldn't change anything.  Challenges make you stronger.
I have so much to give thanks for...

Grammie is dough, Slinky pop toobe and hot tea on a chilly day.
I crocheted a toy censer.  I got a package of 32 bells for just $1.  We love lighting charcoal and putting frankincense on it.
My 12 year old niece got braces a few days ago...I think she looks extra cute!  Olivia got hers when she was 12, too.  She got them off a few months ago.
Saturday, we got a map, parent volunteers divided up our small school district, and then groups of 2 or more kids participated in "tag day." Hannah went door to door asking for donations for their band.  I'm not crazy about that way of fundraising, but this is a way to get to know our community and for such a small school district, the band IS really good.  They qualified for state 25 years in a row.
I'm looking forward to spending more time with family next week, my mother-in-law's birthday is Sunday and Thanksgiving will be here before you know it!

Are you voting tomorrow?  Here is a good neutral source:   Right now I'm researching all the candidates and local issues.
The trees are all so pretty now...lots of yellow, orange and reds.
