Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to all on this bright and glorious morning. Yeah, that sounds upbeat but I far from it today. Yesterday I started having this little tickle in the back of my throat and realized that I had the beginnings of a sore throat or cold or something. I really didn't feel bad and still don't but this morning, after trying to pickle the tickle in cosmo's, I awoke to crap in my head and nose. Egads! I was going to try and bake some pies this morning but now it is not going to happen. First I don't want to expose anything I might make to germs that might infect my father or the others for that matter. Second, I just don't want to! We are to head off to my Sis's house for turkey dinner about 1 today. This is the first time in many, many years I have not chopped celery and onion and baked cornbread. This is the first time in many, many years I have not plopped the huge turkey in my clean sink for a good wash of clean water and herbs to fill the house with the aroma of roasting turkey. I should be happy that I don't have the hassle but I really don't although the cold thing is helping that I would really like to go back to bed and I can! The only baking I plan on doing today is Mrs. Smith's pies. Yup, I am to frozen pies and I am not too proud to admit it but it is saving my head today.

Around 11 today we are also going to granddog sit with little...uh...big Mondo. B&B are going to Okemah to be with his family today and overnight. This means I may not get much sleep tonight as I hear every little movement he makes at night in his bed at the end of our bed. He's a good dog but I really don't like the responsibility of having him here, especially when we have to leave for a bit. I want to put him in the garage while we leave but The Hubby says to leave him in the backyard and I would but if by some odd chance he gets out I would be devastated and feel horrible. We live 31st & Lewis and he would be at huge risk of possibly being hit. Oh my God I would just not be able to live with myself. I was the same with our little doggy. I will win this battle I assure you.

The Hubby and I went out yesterday and bought our Christmas presents for each other, together. We went to Drysdales and I got a pair of cowboy boots and and a cowboy hat and he got two hats. I will have pictures later when I feel like taking pictures which I don't right now...as...a..a..a...a....CHOO! Bless me...sorry. Oh well, I think I'll turn the TV on and take a little nap...Happy Thanksgiving to one and all this morning.
