Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! It's official - the kick off of the Holidays! How do I know.... as I'm getting a turkey ready - I'm watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade. I always love to watch that parade.... wonder what it would be like in person - is it magical? Or is it just crowded? I'll take watching it from the comfort of my home....

Then I go take my shower & turn on my shower radio - the Christmas music has started - all Christmas - all the time - until December 26th.....

We're getting ready to go through the ads in the paper - see what the hot items are going to be tomorrow. Ricky & I normally are the crazy ones out at 5:00 but he has to work for the first time with his new job - so it wouldnt be the same so I think I'm just going to relax tomorrow. We really dont have money anyways to shop after all the fun with the dental nightmare I had... alas, my house hopefully will be welcoming to Christmas by tomorrow.

And what about today.... I'm trying to keep a positive attitude for all my Thanksgiving crazy friends - Lynn, Deidre, & Dawn immediately come to mind!! We're doing the best we can to make it nice.... Ricky's family & my family are having dinner the same time (as every year) - so this year - he's going to his family - I'm going to mine - so we dont have to rush.... but the best will come tonight.... I'm making a dinner for the two of us... YES - I'm making a turkey!!!! Slow cooker will be my friend again! Its already cooking - will take 8 hours (its just a turkey breast) so it'll be ready by the time we get home tonight... I hope this will be a nice Thanksgiving doing it this way.

I have to say - I was gagging as I was cutting the fat off the turkey - now I see why I dont cook often. It didn't help with Ricky behind me making noises & saying "WHAT IS THAT?" .... I have an easy turned stomach.... needless to say - its now cooking!!!! We'll see how it turns out!

But today - I am truly thankful for so much! My family, my friends, my life, & without doubt, most important - Jesus Christ - who I'm so thankful for every day of my life!! So in closing - hope everyone enjoys today - hope that Jesus is part of your celebration of Thanks - & here's a verse to go on your day with!

1 Chronicles 16:8-12
8 Give thanks to the LORD, call on his name;
make known among the nations what he has done.
9 Sing to him, sing praise to him;
tell of all his wonderful acts.
10 Glory in his holy name;
let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice.
11 Look to the LORD and his strength;
seek his face always.
12 Remember the wonders he has done,
his miracles, and the judgments he pronounced


  1. Sounds like you've got a busy day ahead of you! Good luck and Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Don't forget to breathe today!

    No one enjoys a host that has passed out face first in the mashed potatoes because they forgot to take a breath now and then! LOL!

    Hope you have a GREAT day!

    PS: I have been secretly listening to a radio station here in Chicago in my work van that plays Christmas music starting Nov. 15th.! I love it and I can't get enough of it! That's it! I've been outted... I'm a closet Christmas freak! LOL!

    Happy Thanksgiving!
