G-son didn't go back to sleep anyway and he and hubbie watched some early morning cartoons while resting on the couch.
I got up at my regular time ,did chores then made a trip to Sam's Club for some last minute things and the first Christmas gift for g-son, which hopefully he won't find.
I started laundry and then had lunch. I made a cake delivery at 1:00 and another at 2:30 to complete the orders for Thanksgiving. I got another order today to be delivered Friday morning.
Hubbie worked all morning down in the pasture on the blown over maple tree and this afternoon he helped me downstairs.
#2 son left some shelves and other things down there to be picked up later so this afternoon we moved things around getting everything organized and cleaned up in case someone needs a place to stay for a snowy night !!
Daughter came by about 4:30 to pick up the cakes for the community Thanksgiving meal our church is hosting tonight.
#1 son came after g-son and hubbie and I finished evening chores and then headed up to church to help with the clean up.
There wasn't as many people who took advantage of the free meal this year as there were last year but even if one person got a meal they wouldn't normally get we did our job !!!
Hubbie ,daughter and I came home and rested while we watched Survivor on TV. Then we loaded up her jeep from the newly arranged downstairs with some of her left over things and she went home.
I made my 7-layer salad and blueberry jello dessert tonight along with boiling the eggs for deviled eggs and baking the potatoes for my traditional sweet potato casserole. This casserole has been a Thanksgiving special at our family table for as many years as I can remember and before that it was on my mother's table each year.
Years ago the Curb Market made a cook book to raise money and this was one of the recipes my mother put in it.
The same is true for this blueberry jello recipe that my mother also had published in the same cook book.
I will be busy cooking early in the morning for my family on a day that reminds us of what we have to be thankful for.
I try to be thankful every day of the year as well and always try to never go to sleep at night before expressing my thankfulness to my Heavenly Father.
Good Night and God Bless and remember to be thankful.
