Saturday afternoon was gorgeous! After Emi's basketball games we got outside and played, let the chickens out to free range, tended to the pool and I took trimmings from the pine tree and crafted our wreath. I am happy with it at current but might need to replace the pine in a couple of weeks if it poses too serious a fire hazard.

|Gooey, sweet and salty...|
We used chocolate chunks and buttery pretzels and the result was yum! Tasted a bit caramelly too so that was a bonus!
While Emi was doing her thing with the cookie bars, I was doing my thing preparing home made chicken noodle soup packed with veggies. I make a lot so we can eat it for days.
|Bok choy, yellow squash, asparagus and broccoli (not pictured) - carrots, onions and celery already in the pot!|
While I didn't finish the Advent Calendar, I did come up with quite a few activities to put into the calendar once it's complete. I also hand sewed (do not recommend) a dog bed/pillow cover from an old Old Navy dog blanket that's been on the list for some time. I thought Kirby would use it up in Emi's room, but he prefers to be on her bed.
I am sooo ready for Thanksgiving feasts and the long weekend with family....
Have a Happy Thanksgiving, friends!
