A LITTLE OF THIS AND A LOT OF THAT



NOTICE AT LEAST THAT I AM WEARING MY FAVORITE PINK DRESS WHEN I COOK MY THANKSGIVING DINNER.

This year so many things happened in my family that should not have happened but we all have those kind of months or years. Anyway due to that it will be a very small gathering this Thansgiving for me but as I say my Thanksgiving prayer you all will be mentioned.
Here is a comment I left from my last post to give you some idea of how Thankful I am for you guys.

So Tickled Pink that you all like the idea of a mini strip center at Grandmayellowhairs place. You ladies never cease to amaze me at how really sincere and sweet you are towards your fellow friends and bloggers.


When I started doing this I had no idea how it would touch my heart in such a warm way.

You guys are just too great I mean you accept me even knowing that I am a little throwed off. lol

Debbie so glad you came by I was getting worried about you sweet friend and know Debbie that all of us when we pray our Thanksgiving prayer that you and your family will be included in our prayers.

Now before I forget if you all want your shop or if you have something to sell (remember no family members) then shoot me a EMAIL of what you want listed and I will paste to this next Monday.

Sweet Dreams

Maggie

Now after trying  the ole  copy and paste thing I forgot what I wanted to say. lol
The reason I forgot is it takes me forever sometimes to do the simplest things on this here computer. I mean how hard is it to copy and paste. I hate to tell you but for me pretty hard sometimes. This time I ended up pasting the whole page of my blog instead of that one comment. So you guessed it I spent another few mintues in the delete mode.
While we are on the subject I will list a few things I am not grateful for this year. See if you relate to any of these:.
1) Trying to leave a comment on someones site and you have to hit POST five different times to get it to accept and during this time you are ask to spell the most ridiculous words I have ever heard of. One of these times I am going to look them up and see if their really a word. Then if your really lucky it will come back again and say something like Nope that did not work and then ask you to try again to see if your a freaking HUMAN now seriously gals would a not human being be sending you a comment. COME ON. One site ask me all kinds of questions before it would let me even leave a lovely comment I almost just quit. Zeez Marie you would think these brains over all these sites could offer us something simple. Like just hit post. hahahaha
2) Our government trying to tell us when and what age we can have a mammogram. Seriously ladies I am not thankful for this at all. This is AMERICA not some other country where the leaders rule. If years ago this law was in effect I would not be sitting here in my pink pj"s telling you this and that. I would not be here because they are telling us that we can not get tested for Breast Cancer until 50 years old. Ladies that is a bunch of Turkey crap and if I had not been tested at 45 I would not be here. I have a daughter and they better let her be tested every year for this or the rath of Ms Pearl will be going to Washington.
3)  Mirrors as you all know they have not been my best friends this year. What is that old saying about a mirror and a picture. Something about a mirror always tells the truth. Yeah well this next year I may get rid of all my mirrors.
4) Another silly thing I don't like is men can have hair all over if they want it. I mean they don't have to shave their faces unless they want to but zeez we have to shave everywhere. Have you ever stopped and calculated how many hours we spend shaving. Maybe 2010 we should all be hairy.
5) That women try to hard to please their families during the holidays and they end up stressed to the nines and if their lucky they get to do the dishes to unwind while others are watching football.
6) That Friday morning  my darling grandson will pick  two winners of my Chocolate giveaway and  not 90 something winners because if I could afford to you would all get a package.
7) Not having spell check now on this here posting page. I mean who has the time to look up words in a dictionary.
8) Trying to do something special on these blog sites like all my friends have on theirs and I end up feeling really dumb because I know so little about what I am doing on here. (can you tell) hahahaha
9)Laughing at my own words like their funny....hahahahhahaha Boy do I need help
10) That my house seems never to be clean or tidy enough to suit me and I don't do much about that but complain to you guys about it. If and when I get it decorated and cleaned for Christmas I will take some snapshots and try my best to load them on here and show you my little ole piece of heaven out here in Texas. Heck I might even get someone to take a picture of me on the old John Deere. Speaking of that I have to go mow.
11) I forgot I will add it later today
Yes some of these are silly things to be NOT  thankful for but in all seriousness girlfriends if I listed everything I was Thankful for this Thanksgiving you gals would burn your dinner and then I would have all these men chasing me (now that might be something to be thankful for) hahahahahaha

Do not over work yourselfs the next few days. Yeah Right!!!!!!

So as we go into the Holidays this year know that there is one crazy ole Texas gal who wishes all of you out there a  VERY VERY HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

I just loved #8,9 and 10. I sure can relate to those also.
Prayers for you this Thanksgiving for sure.

Thanks for sharing!!!:)

We, also, have had one of those years that I would rather forget. We will have a VERY small crowd at our Thanksgiving dinner this year, due to some of the things that have gone on. But...I am reminded that God is in control, and He knows what He is doing.
Blessings to you and yours this Thanksgiving....

#4 - If you move to Oregon you can have leg and underarm hair and it's no big deal, that's just part of being a female Oregonian. Body hair and tye dyed shirts are representative of the laid back culture. Just thought I'd throw that out there in case you are considering relocating. :)

I DO shave and I DON'T wear tye dye anything but my hubby loves tye dye shirts. Bless his heart, I think he's going blind.

Bunny said...

I too have had one of those years starting in January with a breast cancer scare, so I'm with you on the going to Washington trip. I can picture it now...Pearl carrying a protest sign, the police come and she tries to explain but gets handcuffed and hauled in...only because she hit an officer over the head with her sign.......wink ~

Maggie have a wonderful Turkey Day and stop once in a while to relax....yeah right!

tootles,
bunny

Grace @ Ruby Moon Designs said...

Your "unthankful" list was cracking me up...I can relate to the shaving...yes, let's all take a break! Although I don't think that I could for real, but just thinking about it sounds nice. I'd have so much more time to do fun stuff!!!

You are such a hoot! My house is never clean enough but I've gotten to where I just say "oh well." I can't go a day without shaving. Stubble bothers me. I think the new guidelines for mammograms are a crock! We should never let anyone tell us what is right for our bodies. We have to be our own advocates. I'm coming with you and Bunny to Washington. :) Blessings to you, Tammy

Marilyn said...

We take each other at face value... No baggage... I think most of us feel like we are "in left field" most of the time!
I am 58 & I have seen some very bad times & I also have see some very good times. I have lost loved ones & I have gained sweet friends who love me. Life.... Ya' gotta' love it!!
Have a Happy Thanksgiving & just remember here in blogland we are one.....

Love,
Marilyn

PEA said...

You are sooooo much fun, girlfriend, how I love visiting you and finding out what you've posted about! lol Oh yes, I can certainly relate to quite a few of your "UNthankful" list!!! This year should have been my happiest because I became a nana for the first time but my DIL is making sure that I am not involved. Sigh. Ah well, thank goodness the GOOD blessings far outweigh the bad ones:-)

Because here in Canada we have our Thanksgiving in October, I've been able to concentrate on my Christmas preparations this past week. Want to get everything done nice and early so that I can enjoy December to the fullest:-)


I do wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving with your loved ones!! xoxo

~The Robin's Nest~ said...

Hey Maggie,

You crack me up...Mrs Pearl heading for Washington! I'd love to see that on the news!There would be turkey crap flying everywhere!

Now to the spell check issue. Blogger does have spell check. It's the little ABC with the check mark under it..To the left of where you click to add a image.

Have a blessed Thanksgiving...It's going to be a small gather here too this year.

Robin~♥

Thank you very much for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I see you are on a ranch. That's where I want to be one day...and have a bunch more dogs :o)
Happy Thanksgiving!

Noni at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

Hi, Maggie. Thank you so much for stopping in at my blog and posting a comment so that I could find my way here to your wonderful blog. Girl, I'll tell you one thing I am very grateful for this year... the friends I am discovering in this crazy land of blogs... Life can leave us with the wind knocked out of our sails sometimes... It is a a blessing to find caring, supportive and kind souls connecting through and unlikely source of blogging! How great is that? I send heartfelt wishes for you to have a glorious Thanksgiving... I've had some pretty small ones a few years in my life, and looking back, some of those were right up there in the top for good ones! God bless you and yours. Tanna

SharDon Exclusives said...

Maggie, YOU are what I am thankful for! You make me smile, sometimes even laugh outloud (that takes ALOT). You are too precious for words.
Blessings, dear friend,
Have a blessed Holiday,
Sharon
p.s. About two years ago I convinced my daughter that serving Thanksgiving to 15 people was just toooo expensive for us on SS so each holiday SHE brings all the food and I clean up! Good trade off! Try it!

Michelle said...

That picture looks like me too. :) What a wonderful, thoughtful post! I loved it....you have such a big heart to think of everyone. Thank you also for coming by with your well wishes for my move and my kitties. We are all doing better and better..and I relaly think they will LOVE the new place :)

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

Loved the picture and could relate. Smoke detectors are my timers.
Such a fun post and I really enjoyed it.
Have a great Thanksgiving.

Nanny said...

I'm so glad you came by my blog and visited with me this evening. I enjoy your sense of humor!

I'm a sporadic blogger...I've had several different blogs in the past 4 years....hopefully I've settled for a while now on Nanny's Notions.

As far as that word verification...I'm trying it without but that means turning on Moderation which means you don't see your comment right away, which is annoying to me when I find it on other blogs because I want to see if I spelled something wrong or typed what I really meant to say...lol!

As far as spell check...install the Google toolbar and it has spell check on it and you can spell check any form you fill out...well, except for the pop-up comments...then you are out of luck...and for me more than likely to spell spit wrong...(grins)

Again...very glad to meet ya, come back any time.

sjmcdowell said...

Maggie!! Thank God for you!! I can relate so much with you and please don't change a "hair"
for me..ha ha!! Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving!!
Love ya..Susan in Georgia

Happy Thanksgiving! Isn't it nice that we have a new start everyday. I love the picture. That happened to me when I was in my early twenties. Doylene

Brynwood Needleworks said...

Happy Thanksgiving, Sweetie.
Your blog is a hoot, and I'll be back again and again to visit.
Thanks for you!
xoxo
Donna

PS. I hope someday we have world peace...and that bloggers will turn off the "word verification" feature for those of us who leave comments!
