Calendars Today by Lois

Orchards have shared their treasures,

The fields, their yellow grain,

So open wide the doorway,

Thanksgiving comes again!  


Featuring the
"Thanksgiving Corner Today"

site of mine -- the

Farmer's Almanac

’Tis pie season. Some pie pointers:

• To avoid a tough piecrust, don’t overmix or overwork the dough.
• To keep dough from sticking to your countertop, roll out the crust between two sheets of lightly floured wax paper.
• For fruit pies, use only fresh or frozen fruit, not canned. Get the filling into the crust and oven quickly to avoid sogginess.
• Make the top crust slightly thinner than the bottom crust.

More Thanksgiving as my time permits. I welcome
feedback always. Thanks!!


We should learn from past mistakes, certainly, and then shed the guilt
like a moth-eaten Winter coat. Admire a fresh Spring outfit and look
ahead. Your past prepares you for the future if
you are open to the present.

Be patient - and is that not hard at times? It blindsides us via thoughtless neighbors,
inconsiderate drivers, careless clerks, dense husbands, and children taking
for--ev--er .... But waiting is an unavoidable part of life. I remember
in my life's journey someone saying to me that the Bible says we don't have
to come undone by it. The Lord's patience is our shield and defense, and He's got
plenty stockpiled. I have never forgotten those words and they have helped me
along the way in my days.

Do you  remember as a child, being alone in your room as punishment or sitting with
your nose plastered to the corner in time-out? It felt like your parents had
abandoned you, didn't it? Now as adults it seems sometimes we still feel
abandoned when that's not the case at all. Actually we are in a place
strategically chosen to teach us, broaden us and improve us in the end.

Three things that will never break down, wear out or get lost.
These are  things well worth keeping
in your daily life.

Today is a gift, simply open it
