This year, as usual, we spent Thanksgiving weekend in Boise with family there. One of Gary's cousins lives on the way in to Boise, so we stop by to visit with that side of the family on Wednesday evening. Thursday the more immediate family gathers at his brother's house and my sister and her family join us. Friday much of the gang did some Black Friday celebrating down at Payette Brewing Company. They had a special line-up of dark beers which my family likes. I volunteered to stay home and babysit little Gideon. That night we went to a friend's home in Eagle for a gathering. Saturday we went out to the Sunnyslope area for some wine tasting at Koenig, Vizcaya, Syringa, and Indian Creek wineries, ending up in Kuna for dinner at Enrique's for great Mexican food. And Sunday we journeyed home.

Thanksgiving brings in baking season and I've already baked 10 loaves of cinnamon swirl bread, plus a batch of dinner rolls and 2 loaves of sandwich bread. The next couple of weeks my Bosch mixer will really get a work out!

My stitching projects haven't seen much action, but I did do a small amount that I can show you.
This is the Lizzie Kate Christmas Mystery. Perhaps after my events are over, I'll have time to get this finished before Christmas!
That's all for now, friends! I hope you are having a wonderful week!
