Thanksgiving MeMe

I looked around for a Thanksgiving MeMe and I didn’t like any of them exactly the way I found them, so I did some turkey style carving and loaded my plate with what I wanted.

1. Where?

My house. We switch each year between here and my brother’s house (he goes to his wife’s family every other year.)

2. What?

A traditionally roasted twenty pound turkey with savory bread stuffing in the bird and in a pan, heaps of mashed potatoes, buckets of gravy, Brussels sprouts with brown butter onions and toasted slivered almonds, white and yellow corn, Alice’s Carrot Salad, whole berry cranberry sauce and jellied cranberry sauce, mini sweet gherkins, baby kosher dills, black olives, green pimento stuffed olives and mild pepper rings, crescent rolls, apple pie and vanilla ice cream and pumpkin pie with whipped cream (pies supplied by my parents.)

3. Who? My mother and father, me and my husband, my aunt and uncle, my daughter, her husband and my grandson (I have turkey flavored formula for him) and my niece and her boyfriend.

4. When? Arrival is approximately 1 PM and dinner is at 3 PM (if I get the turkey in on time.) My parents and aunt and uncle will leave for home by seven, my daughter and her family will spend the night and my niece and her boyfriend will leave upon her whim.

5. How? The food will be set out as a buffet and then we will sit down together at one large table .

Sunny Sunday #7 – Say a Sunny Thank-You

20091122 1 - Say a Sunny Thank-You

(Sharpie ® on tracing paper)

And here, for your pleasure, is the silly poem:

Thank You, God,

for the great bounty of Your blessings:

enough clothes for multiple dressings,

luscious food that is much better than gruel,

a big comfy house warm with lots of fuel,

a family always ready to defend

and loyal, happy, silly friends,

a warm and loving spouse of a honey

and a job that gives me plenty of money,

a warm and gifted daughter child

and troubles small and very mild.

I have generally wonderful health

that is more important than excessive wealth.

I have been graced with many talents

and a joy in them that keeps me in balance.

You have helped me keep my loved ones close

and I know that's what matters most.

You helped me find this blogging universe

filled with people kind and diverse.

There's my cute Cody puppy

and I'm glad I was never a yuppie;

and lest You forget,

there's the Lear I haven't gotten yet

and for everything I forgot,

I thank You a whole lot.

Not 2012's End of Time

I saw the movie, New Moon, with my daughter and niece (she dragged along her boyfriend) at the debut 00:01 Friday morning viewing in our area. Thank goodness we pre-purchased our tickets with Fandango when they first became available as there were no more tickets to be had when the day arrived. Shopping online saves so much time and prevents tons of frustration. I have used Fandango several times (we see all of the Harry Potter movies at midnight premiers and did the same for the Lord of the Rings movies.)

I like the layout of their website and it is very easy to use. Picking up the tickets at the theater is very easy, too. Just slide your card (Debit or Credit) in the machine and out pop the tickets. No waiting in long, snake lines.

I wrote a list of movies from the previews that I want to see in the future. You can be sure I will use Fandango to purchase the tickets when the time comes. After all, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 comes out in November 2010 and Part 2 comes out in July 2011, both well before the Ancient Mayan Doomsday and End of Times in 2012.

(This was not a paid post - yet. This was a test. But I really do use Fandango.)

It's not easy to comment there, so you can come back here to comment if you want.

All Mixed Up

It's time to try to get paid for writing. It's time to shove fear down that black hole where it belongs. It's time to view life once again with childlike excitement. Omg, can you imagine a time machine blender?! This blog will contain paid content in the future. I hope you join me.
