Happy Thanksgiving, Everybody!

I can't believe Thanksgiving is here already!

We are almost ready. I am not sure if we will have guests or not, but I am cooking anyway. If we are dining alone, we will have lots of leftovers, even after fixing plates for several of my favorite people around town. I love delivering those plates.

It has just been two of us for a long time now, but I am not ready to give up cooking and go out to eat just yet. I know it makes more sense, and would be much more cost effective, but it would not seem like Thanksgiving without the cooking and all those leftovers!

We have much to be Thankful for. For the most part, everybody is prospering, and for the most part, everybody is happy. We give Thanks for That.

I am recovering nicely from some health issues, and I am Thankful for That. I slept 5 straight hours last night, and I am VERY Thankful for That!

I am Thankful that Bobby is healthy, and such a good friend. Life is not always easy around here, but it is not dull!

Well, not to us, it isn't.

I am Thankful to live in this country, and Thankful for those who volunteer to protect us and our freedom. I keep the members of our Armed Forces and their families in my prayers.

I am Thankful that I have friends, for what would I do without them! Friends at home, and friends afar, I am Thankful!

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Peace in your life, and lots of friends!

Happy Thanksgiving to you too! I agree, it just doesn't seem right to eat at a restaurant. I like having leftovers all weekend, since I am usually VERY busy starting my Christmas decorating!
Blessings,
Lorilee

We had just the least dish of chicken and dressing, some cranberry sauce and a pan of pumpkin bars (recipe somewhere on one of my blogs).

We spent a good part of the day being generally Thankful.

I'm hopeful that the upcoming American financial crisis will bring people back to a sense of need vs. want.
