Happy Thanksgiving!

I thought rather than a photo of food I'd have a flower today.  Less calories!  Ha!  I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoy your families and friends.  

Days like this we should come together and forget past transgressions.  Every family is dysfunctional to a degree and has it's own special people that get under our skin.  I have never met one yet that has perfect harmony.  Just relax and remember, nothing is perfect on this great earth.

If you are cooking and spending two days on a meal that will be over in twenty minutes, well, you are like all the rest of the families out there.  

Expectations of the perfect table and perfect manners and perfect table talk and perfect food will surely lead to feelings that you should not allow yourself.  Enjoy what you have when you have it and forget the rest.  

And smile!  Yes.  Relax and smile.  Take a deep breath.  If you allow your self to do this I promise you will have a much better day.

It's also the 49th anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy.  In all the food and families and festivities please remember this day as well.  One of the tragedies of our lifetime. 

I am sorry if I am a bit "down" today.  I'll perk up again tomorrow, promise!  And I shall smile all day.  Yes, I will.  Hugs... 


  1. I know this is a tough day for you but hopefully you'll get swept up in the day with old Chuckie Duck and all the fine folks at Fern House.

    And you lost another 4 sticks of butter! Woohoo!

    great big hugs, my dear friend

  2. It's a difficult time of year, but we will be okay, Bee. Have the best day you can!

  3. All of us that know you know that this day will be a tough one for you. You'll get through it because you are one tough cookie. You'll see. You've got the Duck too.

    I don't ever want to see my brother again. It because a safety issue. Outside of that, the rest of the family is fine. I don't do the perfection thing, I do dinner and it's a chance for all of us to be together for the day. That's what I like about Thanksgiving.

    Have a terrific day honey. I'll be sending you good vibes all day long. Big hugs. :)

  4. Hugs to you Miss Bee. Thinking of you today. xoxo
