*Groan* Ugh..I ate too much!!

First off..Hello and welcome to the new people! Three comments from people that I've never seen on my blog before!! Sweeeeet!
And now...
Thanksgiving was AWESOME!
So much good food....ooh gosh...sooo much food...
ham, turkey, green beans and thyme, sweet potatoes topped with brown sugar and pecans, pecan and orange pie, pumpkin pie(2), white potatoes mashed, and mixed with various dairy products, sprinkled with something and baked, sausage stuffing, AND turkey stuffing.......
so much yummy food! we still have leftovers, and we have 5 people in our family!
We were so lucky to get to skip the cooking this year...grandma brought everything but the salad, which we ended up eating the next day for lunch....ha ha
So I'm a bit late but I'll go ahead with what I am Thankful for....

I'm Thankful for...

a warm home
Air conditioning!!(and heat)
warm clothing(it got cold here!)
and the "silly" things I'm Thankful for...

Sewing machines
fabric stores

The Little Pilgrim
Cranberries dripping down my chin
Have stained my pilgrim suit.
I ate too much Thanksgiving day
But I don't give a hoot.
I slurped a pile of dressing,
Gobbled down a turkey thigh,
Dribbled messy cranberries
Devoured some pumpkin pie.
Within me on this special day
It's a thankful heart that beats.
For all the things that I enjoy
But mainly for the eats.

So yeah...A week ago.....the door bell rings.....Its Channel 7 news....asking my father to say a few things about.....the meth lab they busted 4 doors down!
Dad declined the ladies request, as he'd just woken up, and wasn't about to show his face on the local news...ha ha
here is what the local paper had to say about the whole deal....

Three people, including a chemist with ------ Base, face drug charges after deputies said they found a “large, professionally equipped” meth operation that used chemicals and equipment taken from the base. Deputies arrested Hubert ----, 31, Jacqueline -----, 25, and Brent -----, 26, at their residence Wednesday night after authorities served a search warrant and found about 3,000 pounds of meth oil worth about $300,000, according to a ----- Sheriff’s Office news release. All three were charged with trafficking in methamphetamine of more than 200 grams and manufacture of meth. ---- and ----- also were charged with possession of listed chemicals, the release stated. ----, who has a Ph.D. in chemistry, told investigators he was employed at ------ as part of a cooperative partnership with North Carolina State University, where he is listed as an assistant research professor in textile engineering, chemistry and science. Deputies said he headed up the meth operation. ---- was not on the property when the search began, but he arrived while the Sheriff’s Office Methamphetamine Drug Unit was searching the property and removing a vehicle listed as stolen from ------- County, deputies reported. Investigators said they found $20,000 worth of chemicals and professional lab equipment in ----’s vehicle that are believed to have been stolen from -------, including a triple-neck glass beaker valued at $1,200. Civil authorities contacted the -------Office of Special Investigations, who also responded to the scene. “The true laboratory-grade professional chemistry stuff. The same kind of stuff you’d expect a Ph.D. to have,” said Ruth -----, of the ------ Sheriff’s Office. ------ said it does not appear the high quality and quantity of production indicates heavy or specialized distribution and that it appears most of the drug was consumed as it was made. First appearance is scheduled for 2 p.m. today.
------- officials declined to comment, saying the affair is a civil matter.


So I can't say our street is boring...

And last night there was some domestic dispute, the guy was just cussing away at the woman, and then suddenly he has a shovel in his hands...we hear clanging and banging, mom decides to call the cops...first off...hes out there yelling at the woman...cussing loudly, you could hear him half a block away "F--- this, F--- that", he's just thrown a shovel in the back of his truck, pacing around, up and down under the street light, around his truck, she's threatening to call the cops, hes yelling something about the cops, all 3-4 cop cars ended up coming out, a civilian vehicle came and got the guy and then the cops left....between the time we called the cops to the time they left, only a half hour had gone by..must not have been a huge big deal......but they'd been out there yelling for a good half hour before...

What? so my room has a good view of a couple neighborhood houses....I know...I've got a good start at being the old maid that has a dozen cats, lives by herself and runs the neighborhood watch campaign by herself, keeps a pair of binoculars by every street facing window, and has holes cut in her blinds so she can peek out ever 10 minutes to see what everyone is doing....and keeps the cops on speed dial so she can quickly report the least little offence.....hahahaha

But besides Thanksgiving....the meth lab, and the neighbors fighting...there isn't much new....I'll have pictures to add of some dolls I made, soon, as well as my Civil War day dress, dads Christmas present...and whatever else I think of or make during now and the next time I post....hehe

A.K.A. The nosy lady next door :P

Nice to see you have this boring life, not! Oh, the food, I sent the smoked turkey home with my husband. It's ok, he works out of state, not something weird. I still have lots of turky and all the goodies. To me one of the best things are the turkey sandwiches with all kinds of goodies on them.

I enjoy seeing your sewing projects and am going to try your biscuits. I am not much of a baker, but keep trying and learning.

Thank you for coming to visit, I love it. Come on back soon. Barbara
