Recuperation and 18/30

Happy Friday everyone!   I hope you had a wonderful and very thankful Thanksgiving.   Our day was great!  My in-laws came over (Mom and Dad in law, brother-in-law, wife, and 2 girls) and they spent the night.   My father-in-law is a beautiful man inside and out, and has unfortunatley been diagnosed with alzheimers.   We weren't sure how this Thanksgiving would be for him because lately the disease has really been rearing its ugly head.   My sweet mother-in-law takes care of him 24/7 to make sure he is kept on a normal routine and to keep him safe.  Well, God is good!  He was perfectly content yesterday and this morning,  and my mother-in-law was able to relax and visit with her children and grandchildren.   For this, I am so thankful!

In my last post, I showed you pictures of some Thanksgiving centerpieces that I looked at to find inspiration for my own centerpiece.  This is what I came up with:

The best part of all was that I only spent $8.50 to make the centerpiece!  I already had the iron stand that the, the candles, and the bird ornaments.  I purchased the moss, mums and pumpkins from Walmart, came home and played around with everything until, voila!  I think it came together nicely, no?

On to my 18th outfit.....simple, simple, simple!  It was a little warm here, so I needed to hang up my outer layers for the day.  You can't get any easier than a white t and a scarf!

  1. Woman! Look at your table - it's like Martha Stewart all up in da house. Love it. Sigh. I dream of a day when I can possibly set a lovely table. It will happen, won't it?!!

    So glad to hear your father in law had a good day. I cannot imagine how tough it would be to see someone you love and have spent your adult life with succumb to alzheimers. Glad that it was a good day for him and you too!
