omg.. just shut me up already.. bla bla bla! lol!

 Good morning on the thanksgiving eve day! lol!  I just have to make a big deal out of every day.. don't I?  I have to say.. I love my life and I do like to celebrate everyday in some way.   And isn't each new day a gift for us?  And aren't gifts special?  and special things should be treated as special??  and shouldn't we be thankful for all the gifts we receive?  well I am.  I can honestly say that I look forward to each new day and am always grateful to get up in the morning and find something to do that makes me happy.   Some of that is because I'm selfish.. and a little self serving.  sometimes I have to remind myself that life isn't just all about me.. lol.. though in my world most of the time it is.  though I do like to do things for the people I love..  but is it about them or about me?  because it makes me happy to do things for the people I love.  well, usually.   sometimes I do things that I don't want to do for someone else..  and then its not really about me.  or is it?  because if I didn't do it, I would not be happy with myself..  hmmmm....  so does that make it about me in the end?   yikes..    
Oh.. what ever!  
here.. here is a collage of some turkeys that Ive made in the past couple years.  the pine cone turkeys were this years little obsession..  but I'm over that now.   note the pine cone turkey in the center of the collage.. that one I did not make, that was made by my dear friend Kelly...  one of my favorite thanksgiving treasures!
I think I'm ready to eat some turkey and stuffing and then pack up all these little turkeys and move on to decorate for Christmas! lol!  (Friday!)
I have a lot of cooking to do today.  In fact I should not be sitting here! but I didn't want to miss the chance to wish all my bloggy buddies a very happy Thanksgiving.   I am thankful for soooo many things.  So many blessings come my way over and over and over again.  God is so good to me..  to us.
OK.. off to the kitchen for me..    I am looking forward to the smells that will be soon created in there!  
happy thanksgiving my friends!    I am thankful for all you that come to visit me and I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Well, I understand all of that stuff you were saying! LOL! I guess it doesn't really matter if it's about us or not. If we do good things for people everybody wins!

Have a great Thanksgiving with your lovely family! (I can't wait to decorate for Christmas!)

I just put a pumpkin pie in the oven and am taking a break before more cooking, and like you said so much to do. But would not trade it for anything! :)

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family Viv! Things you do = for them and you. Don't you think?

Viv, You are living life as we should...being happy to wake up and find some joy in everyday. I loved your turkeys. I do not think I have tried to make a turkey , since we drew around our hands in grade school. LOL. I just finished making my carry in side dishes for my daughter's dinner. I will be fixing the ham tomorrow. :) We do pitch ins for all the family one person isn't doing it I used to do years ago. LOL Blessings to you, you hard working girl. Hope your thanksgiving is wonderful. xoxo, Susie


Thankful for you!!! Love your turkey collections and creations!
Many blessings to you and your family.

What an amazing turkey collection! Love it! I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I need to go bake a pie. Pie baking is therapeutic for me. I love rolling out the crust and all the details that go into making a pie...and then eating it so I can fall asleep on the couch later. LOL
