Hello friends, okay, so this post is a bit of look what we did and Saturday sharing. Two, two, two topics in one. Please tell me you remember the certs commercial where it was two, two, two mints in one. As you may know, my wonderful Mother has been staying with us. She is a loving soul who isn’t afraid to tell it like it is, and she has the sweetest British / American combo accent. I asked her about her hairstyle, or dare I say, lack thereof. She mentioned her hair had changed and won’t hold a curl or a perm. Don’t you just love that aging even messes with your hair, ugh… But, I digress. She wasn’t particularly happy with her current look so I suggested we go to a salon and both get a little change and look what we did!
and look what my Mum did! Lovely, right? Seriously such a cutie, I swear it took years off of her too.
She likes her new do and although it takes a few extra minutes to style there are no complaints.
The new Ruby for Women magazine is out!!! Another beautiful faith-filled edition.
Please read the editors letter it is beautiful and …well, just read it, you’ll know why it made me cry grateful, happy tears. Please click the photo to read.
This month is moving along at a rapid pace. I have a lot to do and little time to do it, did I hear an amen?
We are hosting an early Thanksgiving dinner and celebrating birthdays today. If you missed the Thanks-a-birthday post you can see it here .
Unfortunately a few will be missing from the table, our oldest granddaughter and her sweetie have a tummy bug and our son in law is working. We will make up wonderful platters for them to enjoy when they are feeling better.
I’ve found that setting the table the night before is a real time saver.
I also make the stuffing one day prior and just pop it into the microwave before dinner is served. It always tastes better the next day anyway, doesn’t it?
You can find my migraine safe stuffing recipe below. Sorry, it’s not formatted etc. you can right click to copy or print. As with any recipe I share, please review the ingredients to make sure they meet your dietary restrictions and are free of triggers or allergens.

2 Cloves garlic (minced)
1-2 Tbsp. parsley
