What a beautiful Thanksgiving morning, sun is bright and temperatures are very warm for this time of year, high of 70 degrees today.
I cooked all morning, turkey, dressing, homemade cranberry sauce, sweet potato casserole, deviled eggs, mashed potatoes, green beans, gravy, fruit salad, blueberry jello salad with sweet tea to drink. YUMMY !!! If I do say so !!!!
#2 son,and daughter were here to enjoy it with us as #1 son's family is spending the day in Tennessee with d-in-love's in-laws from the other side of her family this time.
After lunch #2 son helped hubbie move some things around outside before he went home.
Daughter did her baking this afternoon. I worked in the greenhouse, getting all my potted perennials in there for the winter. It will help them survive if we have another winter like last year.My green house is not heated but it stays about 10 degrees warmer in there than the temperature outside.
I try to sit the most tender ones on something because heat rises. Last week when I went in there to water there was a wren in there and I have not been able to figure out how she got in there. Maybe the last time I had the door open because she was sure glad to get out.Our winter garden is doing exceptionally well this year,we still have some broccoli and we try to eat greens at least once a week, we both love them.We have Curly Mustard, Rape, Kale and collards.We even have a few hardy pears still hanging on a leafless tree. Look at that beautiful blue sky !!!This has been a wonderful Thanksgiving day,I am so thankful for all that I have and especially for a Loving Lord that has blessed me with all that I have.
Looking up into the beautiful sky I felt so humbled by all the Glory of our Lord and the graciousness of His love for us.

As daylight waned and darkness took its place we enjoyed leftovers and then I worked on my Christmas project again and then baked cakes tonight so I won't have so much to do tomorrow.
You won't find me in any of the shopping crowds in the morning,I did not see anything in any of the ads I needed enough to fight the crowds. By the time I get up in the morning the craziness will be over.
We do need to go to Tractor Supply for feed tomorrow,but not early!One of the lucky ones !!!!
Good Night and God Bless.

I'm with you. No Friday after Thanksgiving shopping for me! But I know people who get out the papers and map their route days before. Too bad there's not an app for that. Although perhaps there is.

Glad you had such a good day.

I'm glad you had a marvelous Thanksgiving. Shopping on Black Friday is not my cup of tea.
I love your photos and greenhouse!
