Happy Thanksgiving

I just wanted to wish each of you a Happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy and savor each moment of your day.

All of my children have other plans this year so I am not cooking Thanksgiving dinner. We are going to my husband's sister for dinner. In someways it is bittersweet. I don't have to shop and cook. But, I have always enjoyed cooking for my loved ones and watching them enjoy the food.




May you have a joyous day as you count your blessings.

Yes, it comes to all of us Stella! However, when the day arrives and all you have to do is get ready and turn up and eat and enjoy, I don't think you'll mind too much (wink).
Have a wonderful thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving to you too Stella.

I'm old enough to have got past the days when I felt a little sad in the "off" years when I didn't cook for a big gathering -- but I remember well feeling a little blue those years and know exactly how you feel.

By now, I wouldn't want to go back to cooking for a crowd, but I wouldn't have missed those days for the world either! (Kind of like having babies -- it's a stage I loved but not one I'd want to repeat.)

We've spent a lot of Thanksgivings with just the two of us or with RV Park friends at a potluck -- but this year we are celebrating with our daughter and son-in-law.

They're having their very first empty-nest Thanksgiving so the four of us are going away to the Coast for the weekend.

Hi Stella -- I'm at the age where I'm having a love/hate relationship with cooking for a large crowd on holidays.

Hope you enjoyed being someone's guest on Thanksgiving. Our son and family always host Christmas Eve, so we have that to look forward to.
