Today is Friday, November 25th

The sky is an amazing shade of pink, purple and blue this morning as we awake.  Thanksgiving was a celebration of love, family and great food!!!

Our Thanksgiving prayer:

For the blessings you have bestowed upon this family,

For all the days we've had together and all the days to come...

For all the joys and sorrows that bind us ever closer

For the trials we have overcome!

And for teaching us that we can do no great things - only small things with great love!!!


We are happy, satisfied and full.  Our dinner was a presentation of great cooking skills!  Di made a Martha Stewart corn bread pudding that was outstanding and a green bean salad with crunch and Di made the gravy upon arrival...  Deb made a sculptured cherry pie and mmmmm pumpkin mousse (I managed to save a whole one to savor over the weekend) and T & I worked in concert to stuff the turkey's orifices with an apple, cranberry, sausage cornbread stuffing and our family's traditional cranberry orange sauce and a pumpkin cheesecake with praline sauce.  What a feast!!!  We managed to check in with our families and prepare the feast and feel the love across the country...  Our neighbors joined us for dessert and brought a pumpkin and blackberry pie (made by Cathy Sy) and Ryan played a few tunes for us on his guitar and soprano sax.  He's a talented budding musician...  I even crooned a cappella as much of our wedding vows "Someone to Believe In"  as I could remember...

The only downer on the day was the broadcast of the Niner game... how could they do that to their fans?  Only the NFL channel carried it and tho' I thought of signing up for one day,  we made other arrangements... Bina & Sean left the TV set for us and after everyone left we walked over only to see the last seconds of the game...  big brother, John Harbaugh, with his Ravens beat up on his little brother, Jim and his Niner team....  oh well... we loyal fans had been denied access so our team paid the penalty... 16-6 it must have been a nail biter...

We thank God for another day, another year and the chance to do good....

Mike took photos so hopefully, they'll send them soon....
