Senoir citizen now!

Well at least in some stores and restaurants! I will be 55 on Thanksgiving! For the past year my husband has been reminding me that I can get senior citizens deals soon. He is so funny...not. I really don't mind getting older though. It hit me more when I was 29 going on 30 for some reason. Isn't that weird?
My husband bought me the color nook e-reader for my birthday and Christmas. I can't wait to set it up! It looks interesting. Especially if I can get my e-mails on it. It will also be nice that I will be able to listen to books as I am working on miniatures! I LOVE books! and now that I can listen and mini at the same time I am in 7th heaven!
I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and those of you who don't celebrate it where you are have a wonderful day! Hugs, Teresa
A friend sent me this...I love it.

Things I am grateful for...

No particular order;
My family..I am also grateful that of the 10 of us only my dad has passed away. He was in his 80's.
A wonderful husband...even if I had to wait until I was in my 40's to meet and marry him (first marriage-married for 8 years now)
Being cured of a form of Guillian Barr'e... which could have killed me...with few lasting problems.
Getting through a very bad time with depression. Hearing a voice loud and clear telling me to get help now. Sometimes I think it was my grandpa...some say my gaurdian angle talking to me. Life is so good now.
Friends..I have met and hope to meet some day.
My dollhouses..keeps my hands and mind busy.
Books...always something new to learn.
My boys...Murphy and Tanner..and all the fur babies that came before
Flower gardens...color all year round...even if it is by pictures in the winter keep me on my toes
Life...see above list...It's all good.
You my followers and fellow bloggers...your friendship and letting me into your lives, (through your blogs) teaching me every day about LOVE and caring.
So with thinking about Thanksgiving I just had to list a few things. I know that I had left many things out. I will probably lay awake tonight with more to add to my mental list.

My big boy Murphy
Have a wonderful life my friends. Hugs, Teresa

God's smile!

I don't know who took this picture or I would give them credit! This has to be a one in a million shot! It sure put a smile on my face.
Not a lot going on here. Going to work on my HBS contest build. (Hobby Builder's Supply) I recieved my order and one piece was missing. Luckily it isn't something that I need right this minute. But I do have to say that I really have never had a problem with them and when I called they said that they would send it out right away that day. Now to get the ideas flowing. Structurally it is done. Just to add all the pieces to make it mine on the inside. I like to do contests even though I don't think I will ever win. But it is fun to try!
It is a beautiful day. Cool, but very sunny. Nice fall, November day. We are suppose to get bad storms on Wed. But as that is days in the future I won't hold my breath. A lot can chance in the days ahead. Who can really predict the weather!
Now off I go to hopefully get all my ideas working on the contest. Hugs, Teresa
