Beginning the Christmas Celebration at Church

I posted this on the "Drawing in Church" blog, ( but thought I would put it on my blog today....When we arrived for our  Worship Service, the Christmas Trees, Pointsettias and other decor were all in place.   The hymns were wonderful--very enjoyable.

The Falling Leaves are Gone...

Just wanted to post this to remember how gorgeous the leaves were this past Fall.  I actually painted these leaves a couple years ago and made a note-card with them.  Now our trees are all bare--the eaves troughs are cleaned, the outside water is turned off--and guess what we are waiting for.....snow flurries predicted tonite.

Making Cranberry-Orange Relish

Finally made my Cranberry-Orange Relish today for Thanksgiving next week.  If it's made one week ahead (at least) it "ripens" and turns a beautiful shade of Burgundy ;-)   I use my Food Processer to make it like regular relish.  In case anyone wants the recipe:  1-Navel Orange (cut into at least quarters--it processes better)  1-12 oz. package fresh whole cranberries and 1 Cup Sugar.
Mix WELL together and store in a quart jar.  Yummy with Turkey (or Chicken)
Sometimes I put small amounts in the freezer to take out and have with ANY sandwich.
