It's finally here ... Happy Thanksgiving to each and every one of my wonderful readers who help me get up every morning so I can write about some silly thing that happened. I appreciate you more than you know for helping me keep in touch with the world outside my four walls.

Now ..... FINALLY ..... we can concentrate on Christmas!!! Just kidding ... we've got Black Friday tomorrow, just in time to cause havoc at your local stores. Around here it won't be bad because we don't have many local stores any more. Thanks to being locked down, they all closed up and went away.
The best we have to offer is Kohls and Hobby Lobby. Oh ... and Walmart. It's okay though, because this is me after Thanksgiving. I'm so miserably full, I never can see how anyone could get up at 4:00 and park themselves outside the door to get that $100 television. It is rather weird that I haven't seen ANY of those advertisements on television this year. No Elmo, no cabbage patch doll, no robot or even a stuffed unicorn. What's up with that?
So this was me after I cooked that turkey, and again yesterday after I made turkey soup. It was so awful I threw it all away. Besides that, it gave me a terrible stomach ache and I've no idea why. I'll stick to leftover mashed potatoes and gravy today.
I spent all of yesterday hiding out inside while the painters worked around the entire house. I'm so very thankful for this two day holiday so I can relax, not get dressed up and fix my hair because they just might be looking through the windows. At long last all the "top" work is done and they only have windows to paint. YAY! I can wear my old tattered robe around the house ALL DAY!!
While being locked up, I finished the borders on this quilt. Oops ... I forgot to make the patterns match on the top. Oh well ... you should always make at least one mistake in a quilt because only God can make things that are perfect. Top left corner. I'll get a feather to hang over it.
So a big HAPPY THANKSGIVING to everyone. Count your blessings and enjoy the next two days because CHRISTMAS is coming!!!!!
