It’s Thanksgiving week here in the USA, and my family has been truly blessed this year. We have much for which to be thankful.
We will celebrate with extended family and friends this year at my son’s in-law’s home in South Texas. There will be hordes of people there, some relatives, some sort of relatives, some friends, some neighbors. We’ll get to see all our grandchildren and our great-grandson, as well as our son and DIL. And food. So much food. Turkey, ham, venison, beef ribs. My DIL’s fabulous cornbread dressing and way too much to mention. We’ll come away stuffed. My son had a root canal, two caps and a filling done today, but he said he thought he could eat those soft pies just fine (his favorite dessert).
Tomorrow we are going to Houston. We’ll meet our son and his family there and go to the Houston Museum of Natural Science to see the Body World 2 plastination traveling exhibition. We’ve been looking forward to this for a while. Then I plan to do some fabric shopping while I’m there in the city. And I can’t help myself, I’ll do a bit of junking….
Then we go on to my DIL’s parents where we’ll be their guests until Friday. Wednesday will involve a lot of food preparation, which won’t be all work. A fireworks display is planned for Thursday evening. I’m sure we will be more than ready to come home Friday.
I FINALLY got my Threads issue #140 today — the one they mailed to me on 11/20. Never got the original one. Anyway, I’m taking that with me so I can slip away for some quiet time and read.
May you all have a safe and happy holiday. I’m looking forward to getting back to our old supportive and playful conversations here on the forum.
