Thanksgiving shouldn't be limited to one day. Or so I feel. We should be grateful every day for all of our blessings. And I was very grateful for a place to lay my head last night.
It was a long day for Joe and me going back and forth to my sister's house. Even though we had a great time, we were very tired by the time we got home. Joe went right to bed and I laid down for what I thought would be just a short time. When I opened my eyes it was morning. I didn't even take my medicine! I knew it was too late for the evening dosage, so thought I would get up and take my morning meds. I have to wait an hour after I take them until I can eat. I wrote my blog post and then my eyes started closing. I laid down on the sofa and went back to sleep. In all I slept 14 hours! Who does that? I must have been exhausted. And I'm still tired.
So I really have nothing to tell you about today. Instead I will show you a few more pictures from yesterday that I have borrowed from my sister and my friend. Hope you enjoy them.
Here I am!
My brother, Larry in his turkey hat and giving his famous "when do we eat?" pose.
Me, Joe and my sister-in-law, Kim.
Larry without his hat. Much better.
My sister, Elaine. The hostess extraordinaire.
Just before eating.
Elaine made an apple pie that used cinnamon rolls as the crust. I thought it sounded good but I was too full to eat it for dessert. I took a piece home and while I was sleeping Joe ate it. So I still don't know how it tasted. It looked good.
And here is a good picture of Rich's birthday cake.
I think Thanksgiving is finally done now. Tomorrow will start Christmas decorating. I'll be sure to take you along as I go.
