I just got up and waiting for hub to help me with the turkey (stuff cavity with half onion, rosemary, sage and thyme sprigs) and into oven.

Took the two potato dishes and the sautéed stuffing veggies out of freezer to thaw.

This is the first year in quite awhile I don't have anything to prep day of except gravy.

I get to enjoy the day!! And have an early dinner.

Hub doesn't approve of drinking so no wine.

Having my first cup of coffee before I spring into action and begin a whirlwind of activity. Well, there's no spring left in me so let's say I'll get up from a sitting position and start doing something.

We had breakfast. Turkey is cooking. And I have nothing to do at the moment but watch the two potato dishes thaw. Very strange. Watching Ratatouille.

Is watching potato dishes thaw as exciting as watching paint dry?

I'm helping the boy make devilled eggs, keeping the cats out of DW's way so they live to see another day (you can get run over if you're not careful when she's cleaning the house , expecting guests), and cleaning the bird's room.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone

I hope you all enjoy your day, evening meals...

Were having a quiet buffet style, sit where you want.Traditional dinner.
Watch the game.
I saw this morning were down a pie. Guess Mr.Munky and our son had something to do with that.
You know,wondering a month ago if Mr. Munky was even going to be home for Thanksgiving, or to even be able to eat a turkey dinner at all. Seeing that were down a pie made me smile.

I'm truly thankful that he's home with us.

Can't wait until tomorrow when everyone talks about all the good family gossip.
You guys are a lot of fun. It's like the day after. "I survived the In laws!" stories. LOL!!!

Have a great dinner everyone.

Munky Badger.

Unfortunately my daughter picked yesterday to have a tizzy fit. And I refuse to play into it. I was supposed to go to her house. That is now off the table. So instead she went to Boston Chicken and bought me a dish of chicken leg, mashed taters with gravy that had raw diced carrots in it as well as the stuffing. I won't go on, but the whole dinner was a big disappointment.

She called me to ask me what I wanted on the plate from BC. She stopped by with it and Spike went down to get it. Another tizzy fit. Because I didn't go down. I was still in my nightgown and this building does have a dress code for the hallways. Proper street clothes for the hallways.

It may sound like the day was ruined for me. Not really. I am having a nice restful calm day and loving it. And I got a lovely phone call from Maine. My granddaughter lives there and she had some wonderful news for me. It made my day!
