Brrrrr......It's Cold here on the North Forty both inside and out! I could of swore when I woke up this morning there were icicles inside the ole farm house.
I know your thinking complain complain that's all this old woman does. She is either sweating on the tractor for months on end or freezing in the winter. Such a whiner!
At least I am not a turkey this month because then you would really hear me complain. lol
Don't you love the holidays? Like most of you I just wish I knew the secret of less stress during this time of the year and could bottle it up and give it as a gift to everyone.
Our Maxine always has the prefect solution to most events in our lives. Maybe laughing more is the secret or
ordering more bottles of Calm Forte from Amazon might work too.
You could be like the two Indians in this picture serving their cheap wine to the Pilgrim. lol
Thank goodness I love everyone coming to my Thanksgiving Dinner or I might be tempted to try this.
I will be here alone on Thanksgiving Day but on Friday my kids are coming to celebrate with me.
I am praying all three of my children are able to come but still not for sure that Chad can make it or not. Keeping my fingers crossed he will be here.
Are you making the traditional Thanksgiving Dinner or trying something different? Since
the kids are having Turkey and Ham at the in-laws I decided to have Texas Style Barbecue
Pork Ribs along with my traditional turkey and dressing. Instead of a big turkey I am trying a smaller turkey breast and a smaller helping of my Mama's Cornbread Dressing.
Honestly I could just have dressing and nothing else on my plate and be completely happy. Well maybe a serving of cranberries along with it.
Years ago I did a post sharing her recipe for the best dressing ever but if you can't find it and need a good recipe I will send it to you.
Today I found the site Just A Pinch Recipes. If you looking for blue ribbon recipes then you will love this site. I might have to try a corn casserole on there I found today for Thanksgiving or maybe the Sweet Potato Casserole.
Lots to do the next few days so I probably will not post again until after Thanksgiving. Not a surprise since my post are few and far between these days.
My land lady is bringing her maintenance man from Georgetown here tomorrow to work on one of my commodes. He was here last Monday fixing it for me because it wobbled like a Turkey when you set down on it but lucky me it is in worse wear now than before he fixed it. It now leaks! So I called him back and his plans are to come Monday and replace the floor under it. Oh boy do I dread that project but right now the water is turned off to it and with the kids coming in I need both bathrooms. I don't think they would care to use one of the old out houses out here. lol
Sending you warm wishes for a gorgeous week ahead and a very Happy Thanksgiving.
Sweet Dreams and Love to All,
