Happy Thanksgiving to all those celebrating today. If you're like me, you might just be sitting down after a full day. I have so much to be thankful for today. It's a day when you count your blessings. My blessings, family, food, shelter. I'm so thankful for friends. I contacted all those on my contact list this morning and wished them a Happy Thanksgiving. I tried not to miss anyone. Now, I'm wishing all of you a Happy Thanksgiving also. I'm thankful that I got started early to prepare the food for Thanksgiving dinner. I made a fruit salad, no-bake pumpkin pie, and the dressing. You can see it on the table in the collage above. I then prepped the turkey. It's the first thawed turkey I didn't need to run under cold water to finish thawing. As soon as the parade was over, I got the potatoes, green bean casserole, and sweet potato pie ready. The turkey came out of the oven at 1:45. I put the casseroles in the oven and waited until 2 to start carving the turkey. I hoped my son would be here by then, but he was running late. I got everything out of the oven and on the table, seen above, just before they arrived. I'm so blessed. This was a perfect Thanksgiving. No fighting about anything. My son's girlfriend praised my food and told me I need to teach her to cook. She loved everything including the dressing, which nobody but me ate before. She even took a plate for her grandmother. A little of everything, including the pie. For something to drink, I made hot apple cider and put cinnamon in it. Everything was perfect. That's my day. What are you thankful for today? Thanks for reading. The image belongs to me. You can also see me with my new glasses. I almost forgot it snowed this morning.

Sounds like a wonderful day there. My ham turned out great and we both ate way too much. I love the glasses and that very happy picture.

Sounds like a perfect day. I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your time with your family. My cats are here, helping me work. Although, I am sure once the office door is opened, they'll be ready to run out. but, I am still thankful for them. I am also thankful for the unusally warm weather today. Thanksgivings in the past have been nasty to put it politely.

Thank you. It was a true blessing. Thank you. I was surprised when I got them in the mail. I thought they were too big. I'm getting used to them. Snow, even a light dusting, looks good.

I am so very happy you had a peaceful Thanksgiving. We did as well. Still a bit a drama and tension but not at the level it has been over the past years. For that I am thankful
