It’s Thanksgiving this weekend!
The weather is absolutely GORGEOUS! The fall colors add to the beauty that greets me when I step outside.
I am tired from a busy, make that extremely busy, week. The weekend is copying the week… but it is just as well as it keeps my mind from focusing too much on my up coming visit to the OR. Actually, I am not even too stressed about the surgery as much as the IV. I hate needles. I have not missed the irony, being a diabetic.
This Thanksgiving weekend is at our house. Sanj’s high school friend is here, with two of his sons, to celebrate Thanksgiving. The house is busting at the seams with the already overflowing testosterone. My in-laws will be here today for turkey and all the trimmings… and my mom will be following them shortly after.
I have two turkeys ready for the oven because all the big ones were frozen and would have never thawed by our dinner. I do this every year… you’d think I’d learn. I need to just buy a big turkey and then plan on thawing it.
I am not a huge lover of turkey… a bite or two of dark meat and I am set. I just love all the trimmings… the stuffing… my absolute favourite… that yummy green bean casserole with French’s fried onions, squash, corn, mashed potatoes and gravy… drowning my food. I’m making myself hungry.
It’s a lot of work. My feet are achy. They haven’t really recovered from the exhaustion they felt this week. How sad that a stay in the hospital actually sounds restful? lol
Did I mention it’s beautiful outside? Being a Canadian, we really appreciate the surprise of a warm fall day, weekend, rather than the surprise of snow! The fair is this weekend too. Josh insists that we go, as he has something displayed there. He doesn’t even consider us not going! lol
Last night I put both turkeys in the oven at 200℉ and let it cook all night. It is almost done and this leaves the oven free for my many other sides. I hope it is yummy.
I am all over the place in this post, I realize. I am just needing to write and yet find my thoughts scattered. So let me just say that I am so grateful for …
*A great life
*Health for myself and all those I love…
* My loving husband…
*My boys… who keep my life as unpredictable as it can get…
My friends… they make my world a happy place…
My computer… self explanatory, isn’t it?
For a God, who loves me in-spite of myself.
For long weekends!
