GOOD WEDNESDAY MORNIN' YALL,
I WOKE UP THIS MORNIN' TO THE SOUND OF THUNDER!!!! Yeap, it's thundering and lightening and raining this morning as I am typing this and it is 64 degrees. It's gonna be a wet Wednesday for sure. They say we may even have some severe Thunderstorms today in ahead of the cold front that is suppose to be here later on tonight. We will definitely be going "COLD TURKEY" for tomorrow. LOL.
Hubby got in yesterday afternoon about 4:30p.m. My sister came and got the girls also. They stayed all night with her last night as she is taking them shopping to Memphis today. I do wish she would change her mind and just take them to Jonesboro since it is going to be bad. Maybe she will, I sure pray she does. Me and hubby went to Monette, AR last night to their local restaurant and had supper. We had a hamburger steak smothered in onions and peppers. He had fries and I had a baked potato. We both had salads to go with it. And we had Texas toast along with it also. And to drink, we had sweet tea with lemon juice in it. If'n you live in the South, you got to have your ice cold sweet tea. LOL. Anyway, it was some good eatin and we got our stomach's full. We came home and we was watching television. We were watching on Food Network the Sandra Lee Thanksgiving Show. Well, yall, she came to the part about making gravy. She pulled out some "Gravy Flour". LOL. I have never heard of such a thing. I am a born and raised southern gal here. I told hubby that was the "Lazy Woman's" way of making gravy. LOL. I'm sorry yall, but I have never in my life heard of "Gravy Flour". Only flour I have ever used for making gravy was just plain old regular flour. Hubby was really laughing at me at this point. I asked him what was the difference? He said that "Gravy Flour" is a more fine flour. I then told him well you can have a fine flour if you take your regular flour and sift it. Anyway, that was our fun for the evening. We are always doing this with each other, joking and laughing and carring on like that. I think that is a part of what makes a good marriage. We did put our turkey in the slow cooker around 9:30p.m. last night. Hubby loves it cooked in a slow cooker. It is more tender and falls off the bones. Also, I don't have to have my gas oven on all the time either. So, this is hubby's contribution to our Thanksgiving meal. LOL. He does a good job and a great cook. He has spoiled me over the years of our marriage and I wouldn't know what to do without this wonderful man. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH MY DEAR HUBBY!!!! Okay, I'll move on to something else, I know yall probably get tired of me talking about my hubby, but I'm sorry, I just can't help myself.
I would like to "THANK" Kansas Rose for awarding me the "YOU MAKE ME SMILE AWARD". "THANK YOU" so much Kansas Rose. You are a great person and friend and just to let you know, YOU MAKE ME SMILE also. You may have noticed it on my sidebar. I recieved it yesterday.
I must ask everyone: Are yall going shopping on the big shopping day after Thanksgiving? I am not. I did that a couple of times, and said I would never do it again. There are grown people out there acting worse than kids. It is pathetic. It's bad enough just going regular shopping, but to do this the day after Thanksgiving, you have just got to be out of your mind here. LOL. I'm not trying to offend anyone, I'm just saying how it is around here. And besides, I am one of those last minute shoppers anyway. I don't ever have the money to buy before hand, so, I usually pick me one weekend out of December and do my Christmas Shopping. I've gotten to where I buy Christmas cards for my parents and sister. We usually just give my Mother-In-Law money because she can always use it. It is so hard to buy for my parents as they have everything and then, my sister, she is very very picky. She will only wear certain things. So, needless to say, I just give her money and she can buy whatever she wants. Me, I'm not picky. I love anything. Me and hubby don't usually buy for each other. We usually wait until after the first of the year and get each other something when we get our income tax return back. We do make sure our girls have a good Christmas though. They may not get everything they want from us, but they do have a good Christmas. Anyway, I will not be going shopping the day after Thanksgiving. We will more than likely be putting our tree up and trying to get the rest of the stuff out of our old house since hubby will have a long weekend. We usually put our tree up Thanksgiving weekend anyway.
I don't think I will be posting tomorrow. If I do, it may be a short and sweet message. I am going to try and get alot of my stuff done this afternoon so I won't have so much to do tomorrow. I'll just have to wait and see.
At this time, I would like to wish all my blogging friend a "HAPPY THANKSGIVING" and "BE SAFE" if you are traveling. I pray for travel mercies on the ones that will be traveling today and tomorrow and then again on Sunday. Have a great time with your families and don't eat too much. LOL. Sorry, I had to throw that in there because I know we will all be eating too much. Here is my THANKSGIVING CARD to you. You may add it to your sidebar if you would so like. I would also like for my Canadian friend to have this as well. I know they have already had their Thanksgiving, but I still want them to have it as well. My good friend, Diane, of Diane's Place made this for me. She made me a couple of headers for my blog and I didn't use this one, so I am sharing it with you. "THANK YOU" again Dear Diane for all that you help me with. You are such a wonderful friend and I am Thankful to have met you. I appreciate you so very much.
Well, yall take care my friends and have a great Wednesday and May God Bless You and Yours.
Hugs & Love to all,
