That For Which I Am Thankful

Cold outside, warm inside. (Seriously, it IS cold here. The back porch thermometer says it's 50 F.)
Turkey in the oven, filled with Barb's rice/chestnut stuffing.
Pumpkin gingerbread, some of which was breakfast.
Diet Coke with Lime.
Two annoying cats and an annoying dog, all of whom have been underfoot every time I've been in the kitchen trying to get things ready.
A wonderful wife, who puts up with ME.
Friends, especially those who also put up with ME and have for years.
A marvelously generous mom and a darling, understanding mom-in-law.
Japanese lucky cats
Good food
The truck appears to be completely fixed now (knock wood).

I may not watch the dog show after the parade today, despite tradition, simply because they hardly ever show any of the dogs I WANT to see, only the "popular" breeds. But we'll see. I do like the doggies...

Re: That For Which I Am Thankful
I like your list of things to be grateful for! Our family is grateful that despite 2010's painful start with my mother and aunt dying and my husband being laid off, the year improved considerably with my husband's new job, my getting serious about taking solid steps to getting my novel published, as well as starting a Web site and getting serious about losing weight. So far so good, not to put the whammy on it! :-) Happy Thanksgiving to you and Barb and all you care about from all of us here!

I have to grin -- Dale and I were just talking about how 50 F was unseasonably warm. (Seriously, I know the difference between Tennessee weather and Arizona weather. But still.)

Yes, and I also realize it's been snowing in Seattle. However, the highs this week haven't crawled above 63, so you must remember what that's like! :-)

You've known for years that I think 50° is shorts weather, so just imagine my snarky comment. ;)

I am resisting the urge to make pear gingerbread because it's just Michael and I today, and I already have a pumpkin pie... I may not be able to keep resisting, though.

Yes, I saw your post about snow, so... yeah. The snark may flow!

I know the feeling. I shouldn't make cookie bars, but I have all the ingredients, and they sit there, mocking me...

They never show the dogs I want to see, either. I was glad to see the poodles didn't even make it into the final line up, though. XD

I did end up watching. I liked the Scottish Wolfhound, but was glad the Irish Setter won.

I wasn't rooting for anyone in particular except for the Poodles not to place, as I get tired of seeing them win all the time.
