Happy Thanksgiving – now go eat your turkey!

I’m unplugging from the blog for the next few days – there will be no new posts here until Sunday!
Thanksgiving will be fairly low-key. None of our kids will be around, but my husband and I are hosting my dad and a friend of his for dinner. I’m roasting chicken breasts – yes, chicken, you read that correctly! – and potatoes, with some other veggies and a salad, and baking an apple crisp and a pumpkin pie. We’ll probably watch a movie after dinner – most likely something Christmas-themed, since that’s allowed as of today!
I’m at work tomorrow, but the commute should be light and the office will probably be quiet. My mother-in-law is coming to visit until Sunday, and I’ll still get some extra weekend time – I’m taking the day off on Monday!
If you’re celebrating Thanksgiving Day in the USA today, I wish you a happy feast with family and friends, and I thank you for stopping by to say hello! Now, get off the computer and enjoy your day :-).

  1. Mike – This is probably a busy time at work for you, come to think of it. But nice to know you'll be slaving tomorrow, too!

    Kathy (Bermudaonion) – We'll see how well it sticks :-). Have a great Thanksgiving!

    Carol (Pop and Ice) – I'm actually not planning to be at work ALL day tomorrow :-). Enjoy your Thanksgiving dinner cooked by someone else!

  2. I have to get off now? But it's not time to leave yet!

    Enjoy your day, it sounds nice. My family is going to my SIL house with most of my spouses siblings & their kids. There will only be 24 people this year (mostly adults) and it's quite nice.

  3. We started getting the day after Thanksgiving off a couple of years ago which is great, but I kind of miss that quiet day in the office.
    Hope you have a great Thanksgiving and a nice holiday weekend!

  4. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Florinda. My husband finally has enough seniority at work to take the Friday following Thanksgiving off. It'll be good to have him home. 🙂 Enjoy your company!

  5. Melissa – Our commutes tomorrow just HAVE to be better than normal :-)…and glad to know someone else doesn't have the day off!

    Gina (Book Dragon) – "Only" 24 people?1 Yikes. We just had 4, and that was fine with me 🙂

    April – Aren't you supposed to be celebrating Thanksgiving at Disneyland?

    It's true – I really don't mind being in the office when a lot of other people aren't there. I especially don't mind them not being on the freeway during rush hour!

    Wendy (Literary Feline) – My husband has tomorrow off, and is going out to brave Black Friday. I'm sure I'll have a much more peaceful day than he will :-).

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  6. Bryan (JaRF) – My Sunday Salon is just about ready to go up, so see you then!

    Lisa – Thank you! I've already stopped by your blog to thank you there as well :-).
