HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY FROM OUR FAMILY TO YOURS!!!!!
Up at 7 this morning to start the turkey,went back to bed but couldn't go back to sleep,finally when it was time to get up and start cooking everything else I got sleepy again,oh well.
Lunch was ready about 1:00, daughter, #2 son, fa-in-law,hubbie and I made up the thankful crew. Everything was so good even if I do brag on my own cooking !!!!! After relaxing for a while daughter and I decided to finish our shopping for our angel tree kids and maybe pick up some Thanksgiving Day bargains and beat the crowds. To my amazement I did find 1 of the very things I said I would like to have but wouldn't get out and fight the crowds for,it was the same price today as tomorrow morning,only difference,tomorrow morning you get a $10 mail-in rebate. I will tell you one thing those are 2 lucky little 5 year old kids whose names we got,they will surely have a great,great Christmas toys,clothes,books,blankets even a coat in the little girls favorite color. I love shopping for a worthy cause!!! We'll get it all together later as daughter has got some baking to do tonight before she goes to her dog sitting job. It really feels like the holidays outside tonight,temps are dropping into the low 30's by bed time and wind is blowing 30mph and more,brrrrrrrrr.Haven't seen any snow flakes just a few rain drops. We all had leftovers for supper and I curled up on the couch with the 4-legged kids,watched a little TV before going to work at church,yes we will work on Thanksgiving,we always do,helps work off all that extra food we ate today!!!!!
Hubbie just came in the door with an arm load of firewood,a sign of the season for sure.We have 2 woodstoves 1 upstairs, 1 downstairs ,we can build a fire in the downstairs' and leave the door open,it will heat the whole house. The one upstairs really makes it too hot unless it is 20 or lower.Oh and just so you'll know we do have a heat pump!Oh my, I just looked at my wedding ring and the diamond chip I talked about yesterday is gone!! Hubbie says time to get a new one,he says I can have 1 every 30 years! It will be our 30 year anniversary in December!
What a fitting way to end this day of thankfulness,in church,although we were working it was a fitting place to be. I feel such peace and and appreciation every time I am there.I noticed the feeling years ago when I first took this job and it has never changed no matter how many times I go in there. I end this day with a very thankful heart,and reinforced love for Jesus Christ. Good Night.
