Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, readers!

I haven’t posted as much as I would like in the past few months and I’m trying to fix that.

So what’s hot in the streets?  Last night, my sister asked me when I was going to cook holiday dinner and invite everyone over?

Girl, what?


I’m a few years off from having that type of gathering, but it would be nice.   I should definitely try it.  The cooking part won’t bother me, just mentally preparing myself for being a host. So exhausting!

Today, I’m going to my friend’s house and all I have to do is make a dessert and bring sodas. Shazam!

For what are you thankful, dear readers?  Instead of always focusing on what we are missing (I see you Black Friday advertisers!), let’s talk about the wonderful things that we already have.

I’m thankful for:

  • My crazy family and friends
  • My health.
  • Gainful employment – yes there are days when I’m ready to smack someone, but jobs are difficult to come by.

I’m off to get the day started.   I still have to make dessert and call my out of town family since I won’t see them today.

Be safe and have a great Thanksgiving!


P.S.  There is a new Pikachu balloon in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!



Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello All,

Happy Thanksgiving.  I hope that you’re enjoying a nice day with your loved ones.  We’ll all be gathering at my aunt’s house this year.  I’m making Nathan’s Lemon Cake!  One doesn’t think of lemons as a traditional Thanksgiving food, but I always have lemons in my house and this cake is the bee’s knees.  It’s in the oven now and my house smells so good right now.

For all of my fellow introverts out there, please take it easy today!  It’s okay to feel drained and to need a breather after being with family for awhile.  That doesn’t mean that you don’t love them and aren’t thankful for them.  I plan on riding home in complete silence after I leave the festivities.
