Giving Thanks

I give Thanks to God for my family, friends and co-workers. Life is good. Oh sure it has it's ups and downs but that's all part of it.
Wednesday I went to the eye doctor and got a great report. My right eye is better than 20/20 and the left is 20/20 and was told my eyes look very healthy. Couldn't ask for anything better. Other than maybe being able to see better in dim light but I was told not going to happen. No harm in asking. Then with my dilated eyes I ran 2-3 more errands and then headed home to get cleaned up and ready to go out for the evening...
Yep we went out the night before Thanksgiving. Not cooking made it easy to sneak out for the evening. We started out the Thanksgiving Holiday right by going to Puffabelly's to hear Jesse Dayton and Davin James.
They rock! These boys have known each other for a long time and even roomed together so put them on stage with a guitar in their hand and you'll be provided some great guitar pickin and entertainment..

Pamela came in for Thanksgiving and was able to stay until Friday. 
For Thanksgiving we went to my sister in law
Glenda's home. She had set the most beautiful table this year.  My picture doesn't do it justice. And there was plenty of food. 
Everyone did a great job of prepping food and Glenda's turkey was 
really moist and juicy. 
It was all yummy delicious.  

Pamela and my mom head towards the food line.

I hope everyone had a blessed time with family and friends on Thanksgiving. I know I did. Time to go back to work. Darn. I have enjoyed my time off and still have plenty of things to get done before this year is over... 

So until next blog... The fragments of our lives and make. Out of life's remnants, as they fall. A Thing of Beauty, after all. ~Douglas Malloch~

Sounds wonderful! We had a wonderful Thanksgiving too! I can't wait till the day I don't have to do all the cooking. I still haven't put all the holiday dishes away. It's all sitting on my table in pile. Maybe I'll just leave it there for Christmas. :) Happy Thanksgiving to you too!

You must be in your early 40s. My eye sight was perfect until I was 42 and it was all downhill from there.

Hope you are enjoying getting ready for Christmas.
