THANKSGIVING EVE 2010

It was very foggy on the old farm this morning.The barn was enveloped in a dense fog and the road below was even harder to see.I'm glad I can wait awhile before traveling this morning.
Hubbie and I took our time doing the chores this morning,enjoying the peace and quite of the early morning.
After breakfast hubbie went to work on daughter's brakes on her jeep and daughter and I headed to Ashville to buy a mixer.
We went to The Kitchen Store and I got a surprise, the mixer I had driven all the way over here to get,I couldn't use. The bowl was large enough but the head of the mixer didn't lift,you had to take the whisk off to get the bowl out. So I had to buy the 5 quart ,which I could have gotten here in town for the same price !
Daughter and I had lunch at J&S cafeteria in the same shopping center.
We headed over to the farmers market , we bought some Poukan fruit,which I hadn't had before but it was good when the man gave us a sample of it. We also got Lee fruit and apples,we also bought a wreath and a swag made from fresh Fraser Fir that smell so good and Christmasy.
We had driven over on the back roads but decided to take the Interstate back home. As soon as we got on the entrance ramp I said "holy cow" this may have been a a mistake as traffic was bumper to bumper in all lanes going both ways. Luckily we kept moving and made it to our exit before an accident a little later brought traffic to a stand still for hours.
I am mad at myself tonight as I took my camera today and made several pictures but tonight when I went to down load them I found the card still in the computer from the last time I downloaded,grrrrr !!!!
Luckily the fog pictures from this morning were taken on my big camera which did have the card in it !!
Hubbie and I worked on a new bird house project tonight to sell at market,I'll have pictures tomorrow. There was a learning curve to this as we found out what works and what breaks !!!
The turkey is thawed and everything is ready to be cooked into a delicious Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow.HAVE A WONDERFULLY BLESSED THANKSGIVING DAY !!!!!!!!

Good Morning on this Thanksgiving morning, Marilyn. Sorry you couldn't get the mixer you wanted after the drive into Asheville.

Love that poem.. I posted the same one in yesterday's blog. I wish we would keep the 'Thanksgiving Spirit' year-round, don't you????

Hope you and your family have a terrific day today.

God Bless You.
