What I did for my Thanksgiving Vacation

While my wonderful husband cooked, I spent hours (and hours) blogging. Mostly reading blogs rather than posting anything. It’s like unraveling a sweater. You pick up a thread and start tugging on it. Follow it where it takes you and eventually you have a color pile of yarn(s) but not much else to show for your efforts.

Also, I read some fiction:
I did some bird watching. We were on the phone with “M” when I realized the birds were having a fieldday in a waterlogged bucket/planter. There were cardinals, robins, blue jays, finches and more. “C” stopped by on Wednesday (she spent Thanksgiving with her girlfriend’s family in Del Rio), and we called “H” (who didn’t have turkey or any sort of big meal, but did watch football with her boyfriend and his family).
We finished the first puzzle and started on another. This was the first.
And of course, dinner hit the table and we feasted. My loving hubby fixed us a healthy array of herb turkey stuffed with apples/oranges, turkey sausage and pear dressing, garlic string beans, cranberry/orange compote and pumpkin pie for dessert. Yum! I give thanks!!!
And what’s Thanksgiving without advertisements for Black Friday? No, I didn’t go shopping, but my son and I played a quick game of “slug bug”.

What did you do for Thanksgiving? Anything special?

    I’m just about to tell, or give some idea, including announcing my bad mommy status!

    Then will go watch “Kung Fu Panda” with my college-aged son – at his request – some things don’t change. However, he did pay for the rental – and that is new.

    Hoping to have my next post up later. If you get sleepy, you can read it in the morning! Barbara
