Thanksgiving 2019

Yesterday was quiet and calm, with gorgeous fall weather and near-perfect temperatures. It's been one of the nicest Thanksgivings I can remember.

We had lots of good food.  I worked on it at a relaxed pace throughout the day, cleaning up after myself as I went. It barely felt like work. I even took a nap while the turkey roasted.





The dogs got plenty of warm roast turkey with their supper, and we all went for a good walk after eating.

There's a ton of leftovers. I had a turkey sandwich for breakfast and we'll be eating the same exact meal as last night for dinner tonight. My homemade cornbread dressing was SO GOOD. Grandma would have been proud of me.

Today should be nice. The doctors' offices where Gregg is due to go service aquariums today are closed for the holiday so he gets a second day off....in a row, no less! That's highly unusual for him and I'm glad he has some free time to spend at home for once.

Enjoy the day, my friends!

  1. That sounds and looks perfectly perfect.
    Sometimes it is best to be thankful for the dearest one in our lives and spend the day with them. Just them.

  2. Extra time off at home is especially sweet for workers. Your day sounds ideal, ours was too.

  3. This sounds (and looks) wonderful, and I am so glad you had one of the nicest Thanksgivings you can remember!
    It's all about Christmas markets here at the moment. In fact, I am joining a bunch of former class mates tonight for some food and mulled wine (or other hot drinks). I won't stay too long, as I'll be on the train to O.K.'s tomorrow morning.

    2. I think my comment disappeared so I'm trying again: Your lovely dinner looks delicious. The weather is beautiful here, too. Sunny and about 80. Low humidity. Franklin and I will go walking soon.

      Love,

  11. Glad your Thanksgiving went well. We'll be eating the same food for ages, too! We have an aquarium in the Middle School and I've never thought to ask whether it's professionally maintained. I bet it is. I've never seen anyone from the school work on it.

    1. My middle school has an aquarium that Gregg maintains, too. I'd be interested to know who your "fish guy" is!

  12. At Thanksgiving I assume that you toasted your beloved president. He deserves to be toasted in my humble opinion.
