say when

 I don't know what's going on in the universe today, but it's been a really weird
day. A lot of back and forth with good news - and my spirits would be up and I'd be
 feeling happy and thankful and then bad news - and my emotions would
come crashing down. I even had a random Comcast guy come to my door today,
wanting to talk to me as a former customer. No, thank you. And then in Target
when Tim and I picked up his acne prescription, a man followed us from the
prescription counter saying he wanted to talk to us....and told us his about
his acne problems as a teenager and what he did and used. Strange.

 What's everyone (US friends) doing for Thanksgiving? I picked up Tim
at school yesterday and he's home until Saturday morning. We'll be going
to my mom's house tomorrow for dinner and Brian will meet us there when
he gets off work. Yes, he has to work on Thanksgiving day. Such is the life
of someone who works in emergency services - in Brian's case, as a 911
dispatcher. There's no such thing as a holiday for these workers. We'll also be
 joined by a cousin and a guy from our church who had nowhere to go for 
Thanksgiving dinner. I'm the designated veggie person. I'm going to make roasted
 carrots and parsnips, corn pudding, and a cranberry- orange relish. Mom is making
the turkey, homemade rolls, mashed potatoes, stuffing (or, do you call it 
dressing? I think it depends on where you're from), and a homemade pecan 
pie. Oh ~ and there will be wine. :-)


  1. Beautiful window. I really love stained glass. Thanks for sharing.

    1. I didn't know that got published! I was in the middle of a draft and had no idea how it got sent. I just totally re-did the post, lol.

    1. Oops, it was a draft post - sorry about that!

  3. What a wonderful window! It would be nice to sit in front of it for some quiet moments.

    1. Like I was explaining to the others above, I did not mean to publish the draft post with the picture of the window. It was from a collection of stained glass at Navy Pier in Chicago.

    2. One of those days! Weird, but it was a pretty picture. The menu for your mother's Thanksgiving dinner sounds wonderful! I'll be roasting vegetables too. I hope you have a blessed and not strange Thanksgiving!

  4. Hi Melanie - Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
