THE DAY AFTER


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.
 

The guys.
 

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.

  2. He ate it?! Good heavens! You can't even get caught up on your rest without him swooping in and eating your pie...ha! Sounds like something I'd do. I am in the process of putting up Christmas after dismantling autumn. It's a longer process than I remembered.

  3. Next time your name on something that is yours to eat. That's the rule in our house. Teehee! Glad you had a good time with family even though you were tired. I was tired from having a cold. Happy weekend!
