*** Hello.

I hope all are well this fine day and that you had a grand holiday no matter how you spent it.

Here, I’m getting over the holiday which for Campbell and me was a double celebration.

Campbell turned 11-years-old yesterday so, between that and Thanksgiving, we had much celebrating to do. LOL.

Did I do too much work? Well… Not really, but since I’m not used to standing in the kitchen for long periods of time, which I did several times throughout the day yesterday putting together things like potato salad, stuffing and rubbing down the turkey thus readying it for its baking bag and the oven, as well as continuously rinsing dishes and putting them into the dishwasher and wiping down counters so as to keep things neat as I went, my feet and lower back are hollering at me.

Campbell and I went on a couple of great walks, and though they weren’t as long as we used to take it was great to see him out and about enjoying himself in the warm late Autumn sun and crisp breeze.

We also had some drop in company. I got my first Christmas present when my landlady dropped by to visit and check on the house. She gave me a wonderful pair of fleece slippers which have the little nonskid things on the bottoms. They’re incredibly soft and comfortable. I had a bad moment last evening when I thought they might not fit. Then I realized that my feet were swollen and decided to wait until this morning to try them and YAY! They do indeed fit. I’m wearing them now.

Campbell and my half wild Winter Cat shared the giblets and though I didn’t actually see Winter Cat have his I’m certain he enjoyed them.

Throughout the day I partook of three or four glasses of Pink Moscato with frozen strawberries dropped in to chill and give it a bit of extra pizzazz, which I enjoyed muchly so, by 8:00 last evening, after a wonderfully long, hot shower and relief time for my boy we were both more than ready to flake out in bed with a book. We were in bed by 8:30 and though I sat the sleep timer for an hour I don’t think I heard more than about 15 minutes before I’d passed out.

It was a wonderful day filled of fun, food, and much reading and I enjoyed it quite a lot.

Though I must get back to work today, so my holiday edition of the annual Books and Those Who Make Them Happen Catalog can be ready to go out by Cyber Monday my heart is still overflowing with joy from such a wondrous day off.

Do tell? What did you all do for Thanksgiving?

I do so look forward to reading your replies.

Until next time, this is Patty who enjoyed her holiday mightily, and King Campbell who is warn out from all that partying saying…

May harmony find you, and blessid be.

  1. How well I know the slippers and sleep timer. LOL. So glad Thanksgiving was good for you and your birthday boy. I wasn’t feeling well, but still managed to prepare and enjoy dinner and dessert. Not being big fans of turkey here, we had ham and stuffing, green beans and sweet potatoes. It was a lovely quiet holiday.

  2. Cooking big meals is a lot of work, Patty. My lower back and feet often ache on Christmas day which I always host. This sounds like a great holiday.

      Hi Robbie.

      This was the last Thanksgiving and birthday that Campbell and I spent together.

      Had he lived today he’d have been 12-years-old.

      Thanks for reading and commenting.

      Food For Thought

      We all are the Light, automatically. So we really don’t have to go too much further than that. We all have a Light within us – it is the Soul; it is that spark of God, of the Divine, that activates our consciousness.
