Happy Thanksgiving!!!

I don't know about all of you but I'm stuffed like a turkey. We had a beautiful afternoon to have our feast. I got plenty of Vitamin D as it was quite sunny, a little warmer than I would have liked. I broke out in a sweat at one point. We ate outside at my cousin's place in Winter Haven. We sat at picnic tables under the huge oaks on her property.

There was deep fried turkey, baked ham, mashed potatoes, gravy, dressing, squash casserole ( most excellent since I made it), mac n cheese, hash brown casserole, green bean casserole, corn souffle, sweet potato casserole, cranberry sauce with jalapenos ( that was some good stuff), waldorf salad, cauliflower/tomato salad (very good too), broccoli salad. For dessert there were brownies, pumpkin pie, pecan pie, carrot cake, pumpkin cobbler and sour cream pound cake. Did I leave out anything??? Probably!

I am thankful for my family and friends, that I live in the USA, have religious freedom, a roof over our heads, my furbabies that love me, my health, that my daughter has a job, that I have a job even though I'm going to be let go in the near future then will have to find another one. Good luck on doing that with this economy. I am thankful for our service men and women who protect us and our country.

I pray that all of you had a wonderful blessed day with your families and friends! I hope that you got plenty to eat cause if you didn't it's your own fault!!

I am glad you had a good Thanksgiving! Mine was okay. I had to work a 1/2 day and then went to my brother's house for dinner. You asked me once if I am on Facebook. Yes I am. Actually I spend a lot of time there when I am not doing other things. I am trying to get back in touch with blogger friends. Did a post today about my NEW granddaughter! Yay. We will be visiting them soon in Florida. They are down the coast from you I think. Can't wait to hold and kiss that new granddaughter!!!
