Thank you Universe for all that I have because I truly live a blessed life.
We were a small but mighty great group for Thanksgiving this year. Just my sis Lor, my bil Darryl and youngest nephew Spence. And we had such wonderful time.
Naturally, as Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parades’ biggest fan on the West Coast, we started out with watching it on the big screen at their place. We cooked, we noshed, we talked, we planned and then we ate! So yummy! Darryl smoked our bird this year and it was beautiful and delish. We had all kinds of great sides and Lor made the most beautiful pies for dessert.
Somehow, the beautiful, sunny and chilly, day just flew on by without us even noticing. I wouldn’t change a single thing about the whole day. Well, except maybe the sweet potatoes. Darryl and I are always in search of a recipe we like and the search continues!
Leading up to today we had drama at home last night. Glen is stretching his kitchen skills and made banana bread – and overfilled the loaf pan. Which then spilled all over and started a full on fire which then set off the smoke alarms in the house! The animals all freaked out and we had to open every door to the 22 degree temp outside to air out the house and get the alarms to stop. Crazy! Hey, to me, though, it isn’t really Thanksgiving till the smoke alarms go off!
And finally today, a giant sized Happy Thanksgiving to my family that is spread out all around the world right now and to all of you who mean so much to me. And a big, big, big Happy Anniversary to my parents who have been married 60 years today! Love you to the moon and back!
