Today I had Harry home with a sinus infection.
We went to the doctor for an antibiotic.
Doesn't look to terribly sick with that smile,
but he does feel crummy.
The other day I collected leaves outside and
pressed them in an old dictionary to dry.
Doing this always reminds me of my grandma.
She died when I was only 8 years old, but
she was sweet, creative and I don't have anything
but good memories about her, her home, and holidays there.
Today I pulled out the leaves and wrote names on them
so I could use them as place cards on the Thanksgiving table.
Little bunny is still looking festive at the kitchen sink.
The wood pedestal bowl with dogwood blossoms painted on it is
a recent thrift store find!
I also pulled out the crystal and washed it up so it would be ready to go!
And I polished the silver.
Remember the stinky paste, the scrubbing, rinsing and buffing? Not anymore!
Just lay a piece of aluminum foil in the sink, add 2 T of baking soda and hot water.
Soak your silver for 5 minutes and it's done.
No tarnish! Couldn't be easier!
I dried it all to make sure there weren't any water spots and put it back in the case. Had to smile at my silver set.
My uncle found it at a thrift store 9 years ago and sent it to me!
I guess thrift store browsing runs in the family!
I had planned on running errands today, but with Harry home I had to change plans! At least I got some of my other little chores done in
anticipation of Thanksgiving. Tomorrow I go to the cute little Amish turkey farm, my favorite part of Thanksgiving prep!
Thankfully, Taylor's schedule is free to stay with Harry while I shop. :)
How was your Monday?
