Everyone, has been commenting about the green bean casserole.

Its my husband and son's favorite vegetable. I personally don't
care for it.

But I've been making it for years for them. So I will make it again.

I make the corn casserole for me. I didn't care for my daughter-in-laws
last year. So I told her I'd bring it this year.


I am working on some desserts still, we don't have them yet.
But I didn't think last week was okay to buy them. I kind of knew I''d
eat them if I bought them. Heehee

So still working on that.

UgH! Forgot my corn! I may be only having green bean casserole
I had few items to pick up today. Soooo work calls, a tractor trailer roll over on an interstate an hour away. I tell them, I don't think physically I can. I put 800 miles on in claims and taking ds to neuro in Hershey this week. Worked right through the weekend, a thing called Sandy blew through.

Office ask me to send dh to just get photos of the load, scene cleanup going on. Maybe an hour.....Well dh is working midnight shifts tonight and tomorrow so I suck it up take a muscle relaxant and three Advil......
I am finally home 8 hrs later. With no corn, no potatoes or whip cream for the two pies from SAMs club.

Everyone have a nice relaxing day, yippie a day off!

Di,

Enjoy your Thanksgiving.

I believe the pies will be fine without the whipped cream.

I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.
I am grateful to have the day off work and to be able to stay home with no plans beyond having to clean the kitchen sink before i have to go to bed tongit.

Heart Thanksgiving ... thoughts?

Happy Thanksgiving
Everyone!
Today i have set for myself to be thankful for the simple things in memory and honor of those who tried to teach our ancestors how to live in harmony with the Earth.

I may observe also by eating one or two "traditional" Thanksgiving veggies. (I am not eating much, so it depends what other people cook whether or not i can squeeze this in). There would be great irony in this as at least one veggie would have been subject to high technology and transportation (canned, albeit steamcooked w/ no preservatives); certainly not grown in soil tilled by my family. Now, mom did buy a local variety of sweet potato but not sure if she plans to make them today. She used to have them oven roasted when she was a kid... nothing to do with Thanksgiving for her, but a close enough resemblance for me.

Having been in a bad mood I also will make extra effort to be kind to my family and grateful for their patience with me.

also i have a bunches of hand wash overdue, not to mention my grungy self. ugh. Any sort of observance always makes me feel 100 times the obligation to be fresh as a morning rose from the ends of my hair to the tips of my toes for some reason. not that i always make it ... but the alternative is a sense of profound shame. not even guilt. shame.

well i can see where this post is going. and i was hoping to be up beat and instead i sound beat up. how's that for a turnaround.

once again, Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.

Thank you, bizi, for that wise reminder to us each and all here as we embark today upon the holiday season,
and for the remainder of this season into the new calendar year.

Thinking of y'all here and hoping for you a Happy Thanksgiving Day & weekend.

I am thankful for you all here in this Neighborhood on NT.

It just was not going to be the best of thanksgiving days for us.

I just have had a feeling for a while.

And it went from bad to worst. But we survived.

Sabrina has had a major headache all week. Thanks to things beyond
her control. I should have taken that and realized. I needed to move
to place to my house.

But the second part of the problem would probably still not have gone
away. First she calls at 11:30, after saying 2:00. And wants
to know if everything is ready.

Well no, its not even close most isn't started. Well, mine is and it might
not stay hot. Sorry, can't help that. But of course I feel bad.

Then when we get there its a world war III going on.

There was a issue that was out of our control. Thanks to my granddaughter. And
its too bad she decided to bring it up today. And bring her boyfriend around. Sabrina's
mother has custody technically of her. Which I think needs to change. For this one
to not have such a wild side.

Donna
