Time to make the donuts.....

if I were going to make donuts! Since I am not responsible for the turkey, there is no reason to be in the kitchen right now. Kitchen??? Oh yeah-that is the room where the microwave is...and other rarely used appliances! I do have to use the oven today- i dusted it yesterday before I did make a maple pecan quick bread (mix from Wm Sonoma).
If this is a little garbled, it is because currently Henry is sitting on my lap helping me blog. It is not easy typing with the boy! He is thankful he is not a turkey!

I read Laurie's blog when I got up. I hate it that she is so far from home in these troubled times. As I watched CNN last evening I was trying to remember where in Mumbai she had stayed last year.

So what am I thankful for:
I thank God first and foremost for all the blessings He has given me
I am thankful for a wonderful family-daughters who have grown to be carrying, thoughtful individuals, sons-in-laws who love and care for their wives and tolerate their mother-in-law, my little Sarah and Emma, who light up my life.
I am thankful for friends-past and present, here and far away. I have some of the best "girlfriends" a person could have!
I am thankful for this country despite shortcomings, we have more freedom and opportunities than most others in the world.
I am thankful that I am gainfully employed and I am thankful for the families of the residents I take care that they trust us with their loved ones.

All this before a second cup of coffee. So Happy Thanksgiving to all and to all a good night! And a great day!!
