"Growing Together"

Happy Thanksgiving!

2And we do have a lot to be thankful for!  Friends, family, freedom, great weather, and much more.  Be sure and take time this week to ponder all of your blessings.  And don’t forget that you are a blessing to someone, too.


Can you believe this weather?  How many times have you heard that question this week? Should I really have been mowing in mid November?  In a t-shirt?  That just doesn’t seem right.  Here is what my husband and Joe were doing Saturday at my family’s Thanksgiving dinner.  Fishing and napping.  And it was a perfect day for both!


We are only one week away from the Elmwood Extravaganza!  Are you decorating your house for the decorations contest?  Have you reserved your table for the garage sale?  Maybe you are just a shopper and are planning on coming to browse.  And eat pancakes.   Or soup at the soup supper.  Or snacks at the free showing of Shrek III at the rink.  Whatever your plans are for the day try to make time for the Extravaganza!  Stop by and say “Hi’ to Santa!

Oh, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!  Everywhere you turn!

If you were taking a turn around the park this week you would have seen a few little elves stringing the lights on the town Christmas tree.  Kenny and Sydney Kunz were driving the tractor and raising the loader with Ed Blunt inside.  Jace Blunt was on the ground handing the strings of lights to his dad.  Ed asked me if I was there to take a picture of him falling into the tree and I told him if that was what I had to do then I was ready to do it.  Luckily, that didn’t happen.  The tree lighting ceremony will happen on Saturday.  As you drive by the tree in the next month, just try to picture Ed upside down in it.  That would have been funny, painful, but funny.


What were you doing Monday afternoon between 1:30 and 3:15?  I bet it wasn’t anything that involved electricity!  Elmwood experienced a black out during that time.  It provided me with another opportunity to rake leaves, just can’t get enough of that!  But I’m sure it brought other people to a grinding halt.  Just one more thing for us to be thankful for…electricity!  Since I work at a nuclear plant, yes, I do have a day job, and electricity is our business I am well aware of what it takes to get all that power to the people.  I am thankful for all the people I work with and the things they do to make our lives easier.  So turn on that light switch and thank a lineman, an operator, an engineer.  Whoever was responsible for getting that power turned back on was working their tales off.  We owe them a big thank you!!!


In my travels this week I came across this car in Columbus.  Just had to share it in case anyone else thought it was cool.  One more thing to be thankful for…classic cars.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!  Don’t eat too much turkey or pumpkin pie!  Remember, there will be plenty of it for the next week!  See you at the Extravaganza!
