I was tagged by my sister Michelle to post the 4th picture from the 4th file of the My Pictures folder on my computer. Which hard drive do I choose? I chose My Book and this is what I came up with:

What I'm thankful for myspace graphic comments

It's that time of year for reflection and to acknowledge the things we are thankful for. Here are a few things I am thankful for.

  • My family - thank you for being there when I need you.

  • My friends - same goes for you, too. Thanks for listening.

  • My job - most days.

  • My health - taking care of a couple issues right now, but overall, still good.

  • My children - ok they're cats, but they're still my children.

  • Music - couldn't imagine life without it.

  • I'm sure there's much more, but it would take all day to list and I don't want to bore you.

    YUM! myspace graphic comments

    I slaved all day Wednesday to make pies for Thanksgiving dinner. Here's part of what I went through.

    **start with the pastry**form into nice round ball**make sure it fits**

    **fold in half*****fold in half again*****place in pie plate**

    **unfold*****tuck under edges*****flute the edges**

    **prick with fork***close up shot***HOT 450 degree oven**

    **bake for 10-12 minutes*** The end result***

    I was too lazy to take pictures of the filling process so you just get to enjoy the end result. Yum! I actually had time to make the pastry from scratch this year. Had a little left over so I rolled it out, sprinkled it with sugar and cinnamon and baked. Forgot how flaky and yummy my recipe is.

    When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don't adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.
