Updated 02-22-2014 at 02:23 PM by bigbearfla58 (Updates for Thanksgiving 2014)

Friday August 30, 2013 5:44 p.m. I just wanted to take out time today to wish everyone a very Happy Labor Day Weekend and holiday season yet to come.

I also have one new to me holiday treat to share with all of you.

1. My Grandma's Coffee Cake

I am sure some of you know of My Grandma's from QVC or your local markets. I just found this cake and its the best. Log onto MY Grandmas and find a store in your hometown.

2. We Take The Cake Key Lime Bundt Cake

This cake was featured as one of Oprah's Favorite Things in 2003.

3. The Christmas Palace has Christmas every day of the year I love this store.

I love living here in South FL as all three of these places are in my back yard.

This is Labor Day Weekend 2014 now it's time to start my Thanksgiving preparations. This weekend I will be checking out the pantry and re-seasoning my cast iron skillet getting it ready for Thanksgiving.

Today we are putting up the Christmas treeÖ Oh how happy this day will be, hurry no time to waste. Do you remember that trunk we packed? The one that holds our most prized possession, well come on now pull it outÖ
It is overflowing, oh myÖ Letís open it up. Look at the Joy, the Cheer, and Peace! Letís get them out letís put them up, spread them here and spread them there, give them away to all those we love, new friends too, oh what the heck letís just give these out, give them to all who come to our door, but letís not forget to give this to those who need it most. See them go all around spreading happiness all over town. I love how they go about thru the neighbors and down the block, then up the next, just to come back to us. Why it has grown and spread, I am sure it did, look how much more we have it has been but a mere minute out and our Joy & Cheer have already grown and spread around.
Here come the memories of Christmasí past; why here they come,...
