Do you know this Thanksgiving song?

Happy Thanksgiving

Every Thanksgiving I can remember my Grandmother and my Mother sang this Thanksgiving song. Mom says it's probably from the 1800 or 1900's. We have no idea where this song came from, who sung it or how my grandmother came by it. I've done many Internet searches trying to find the title, who sung it or any snippet of info about it and come up empty every search. My Grandma's long passed and I would love to know any info about this song for my mother. If you know anything please email me at pacycrochetsatsbcglobaldotnet.
I just took a peak in the pantry,

And spied on the lower shelf.

A long row of pies,

That would be a surprise.

To the mince, pie prince, himself.

And up on the next shelf above them,

Were cakes so round and white.

And ready to roast,

Big enough for a host.

Was the turkey a wonderful site.

On the floor were nuts in a basket,

A jar full of cookies too.

And up very high,

I could certainly spy,

The fruits and the candies too.

My grandma is here and my Grandpa,

My cousins and Auntie Mae.

What is it about?

Can you not find it out?

For tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day.

Homemade soap update

Click on this for link to the soap recipe

I wanted to do an update on the soap I made, but I ended up really surprising my husband in the making of this post. First off let me say that I love this soap. We've been using it for a couple of weeks now and my skin has never been softer. Most surprising to me is how wonderful this soap is as a shampoo bar. It lathers up like an expensive shampoo and my hair is so soft that I no longer need to use conditioner. That picture on the right is me showing how wonderful it lathers. Though I do have a note of warning to anyone who wants to make this soap and blog about it. If you get the bright idea to jump out of the shower while your shampooing your hair so you can take a picture to show how lovely your homemade soap lathers be warned that you just might have to explain to your hubby when he walks in why your standing in the bathroom, dripping wet with a soapy head holding a camera. His eyebrows raised a little when I said I needed a picture to post on the Internet

Just a Funny

I got this from one of my email friends and thought it was a funny thing to share☻


  • Everyone around you has an attitude problem.
  • You're adding chocolate chips to your cheese omelet.
  • The dryer has shrunk every last pair of your jeans.
  • Your husband is suddenly agreeing to everything you say.
  • You're using your cellular phone to dial up every bumper sticker that says: "How's my driving-call 1-800-
  • Everyone's head looks like an invitation to batting practice.
  • Everyone seems to have just landed here from "outer space."
  • You're sure that everyone is scheming to drive you crazy.
  • The ibuprofen bottle is empty and you bought it yesterday.


10. Cats facial expressions.

9. The need for the same style of shoes in different colors.

8. Why bean sprouts aren't just weeds.

7. Fat clothes.

6. Taking a car trip without trying to beat your best time.

5. The difference between beige, ecru, cream, offwhite, and eggshell.

4. Cutting your bangs to make them grow.

3. Eyelash curlers.

2. The inaccuracy of every bathroom scale ever made.

AND, the Number One thing only women understand:

Bailing my Goat out of Jail

Well the men are deer hunting, and I've been laying about lounging like a queen. At least I was until I went to feed the animals this morning and found out that Jerry was AWOL. Long story short, Goat missing, lots of searching, no luck, went down to the police station to fill out a Missing persons Goat report, only to find out that the police had apprehended him 3 blocks over in the act of committing property damage (eating someones tree). The suspect was then arrested and sentenced to hard labor, we then paid bail and took him home.

Free EBook - 9 Thanksgiving Decorations to Make

Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday. When I was a child, every Thanksgiving, while watching the parades, I made a potato turkey to grace our holiday table. Mom would help draw his head for me to color and cut out. I would then lay my hand flat on the paper and trace it so I could color and cut out his tail. Cut a diagonal slit on one end of the potato to stick in his head and a horizontal slit on the top of the other end to stick in his tail. Add four tooth picks for the legs and wala you have a turkey to grace your table. This tradition has passed on from my Mom, to me, then my children and grandchildren.  So I guess my love for Thanksgiving crafts is hereditary.

I just downloaded a free ebook from Favecrafts with 9 Thanksgiving crafts to make. I can see some new traditions starting now. Click on the link below if you want to check it out.
