Happy Thanksgiving

After some hours of dicey Midwestern weather, Thanksgiving morning arrived dark, cold but calm. Nothing like those early hours of waiting for the day to begin; well, for women it does begin with ovens, vegetables, yeast, and all the things that make the day full of comfort foods later. Our holiday this year will be small and quiet, but none the less full of thanksgiving. We wait as our son drives four hours home with his dog and we will thankful when they drive in safe and sound.

After days of feeling poorly, I am thankful to be up and moving. Although I am late, I need to announce that Linda O’Connell won the memoir give away by luck of the draw. The book is on the way to her house right now, and we can all expect the first chapter of her memoir delivered to our email boxes by New Year’s Day. Just kidding, Linda!!!

May all you readers be having a wonderful holiday today. May both your plates and hearts be full today wherever you are. Happy Thanksgiving.

Hello Claudia...Hope and pray your son and his dog made it safe and sound to your house and to the delicious dinner, too.

Yikes, the midwest got snow early, didn't it? Does it usually snow on Thanksgiving?

The day here was wonderful....abundant and blessed.

Liked your photo, too! Thanks so much for visiting and commenting on my blog. Always love having you stop by. Glad Linda was a winner! Take care. Susan

Nice to know you had a great holiday. It was cold and freezing ice here but no snow. Only ten of my bunch here, snug as bugs in a rug, with so much food MY candle had to be blown out and placed to one side. Love this blog.
