Thursday, Happy Thanksgiving!

It is our youngest daughters birthday today.  She was a turkey baby and every 4 years her birthday falls on Thanksgiving.  She does not mind it now, but when she was little she never got to have a party as no one could come.  I remember one year our oldest was a senior in high school and  B was 5, we realized no one was going to show for her first real party.  So the eldest called all her friends and they all came dressed as the stars wars crew and B had the birthday of a life time.  It was so sweet.  She never even knew her friends were all out of town. 

     So we always celebrate with candles in a  pumpkin pie.

     The basement is so torn up and I just forgot how much work painting is.  We did get all the doors replaced and now we only have two left, the front door and the basement door.  Both of those are outside doors and we will wait to replace those.  Well maybe as I have to paint the basement door I will replace that this next week.

     Dinner is at little sis's house and I still have to make my cheese ball, pies and rolls.  I do have the crusts done, so the hard part of the pies is done.  I will have my mother-in-law peel apples for my apple pie.  We are not eating until 5 so I have plenty of time to cook things up today.

     The computer was torn up with the painting, and I had the corner where the computer and desk sits, painted first so it could be put back together. There is just so much to do and it is such a mess.  The kids worked hard and are coming down again next week.  I am going to try and paint at least two hours every day. Repetitive motion with my upper body always leads to a serious flare, with frozen shoulders and carpel tunnel. I cannot paint all day.  I have to take it very slow and that just aggravates me.

     So after I get dressed I am going to get my pies in the oven and make my cheese ball.  I will put the green beans together, and have Hubs help with the relish tray.  I plan to paint for a few hours and then I will put my rolls together at about 1:00 so they are fresh when we eat.  We will have to cart all this over to Lil sis's.  I did my sweet potatoes and stuffing (oyster)yesterday and they will go into the oven with the rolls later today.

     I am so grateful, for all my blessings, all of you being among them.

Have a glorious Thanksgiving day and eat as much as you can, I know I will.

  5. My sister's birthday is Dec 26. I tossed her her birthday present across a room full of people and said "Happy Birthday." She had already opened her Christmas present from me. She said I was the only person who ever gave her a birthday present.

  6. I hope you had a delicious meal and great company! I had a restaurant meal with my younger son away at college, and a call from the older one who just moved to Pittsburgh with his new job.

  8. I was a Thanksgiving baby as well. so yep, the very few years it falls on the same day-and that confused my kids when they were young. You sure made a lot of food to haul to your sisters.

    1. I did and now we get to eat the left overs. Lil sis is not a cook, but she did the turkey and the potatoes also a cranberry jellos salad that was my moms favorite.
