Are you all ready for Thanksgiving? I’ll be making my famous Champagne Turkey again this year, and since my mom has been having some inner ear issues coupled with vertigo, I’ll be cooking in her gourmet kitchen:
And enjoying the view of Mt. Rainier from her kitchen and dining room windows:
Those were the realtor pics from when she bought the house almost exactly two years ago, so she now has really cool furniture and decor that makes me wonder if she missed her calling as an interior decorator. I’ll have to take some pics when I’m there.
It took awhile, but she finally got the house of her dreams, and I couldn’t be more happy for her, especially with all that she’s gone through the past few years (losing my dad, her youngest daughter having a stroke, not to mention a myriad of other things). This will certainly be a year of thanks, especially with my sister rallying after her stroke.
Speaking of my sister, she’s doing great, was moved to a ‘regular’ hospital room (no more brain drain, no more feeding tube…woot!) She finally was able to have some ‘thick coffee’, too – one of the things she’d been asking for, since she’s a big coffee drinker like the rest of us. She’s ready to be relocated to a nursing facility, we’re just looking for the ‘right’ one, and one that has a room or bed available.
It would be nice if we could get her moved in time for Thanksgiving, and even nicer if she can join us at my mom’s house to be surrounded by family to the max. Thank you all so much for your prayers and kind words – they mean more than you’ll ever know.
It’s hard to fathom that Christmas is one month away… I’m not going to ask if you’re ready, because I’m sure not…heh!
Let’s move on to the funnies, shall we? With Thanksgiving in the offing, I thought this particularly funny:

The struggle is real:
This is hilarious:
This made me do a double-take:
This is groan worthy:
Guess the milk didn’t have a 1/3 sale:
I would love to know the reason behind this sign:
This is funny:
And I’m just going to leave this right here for you:

My friend MessyMimi participates in Happy Tuesday each week, so I thought I’d join in the fun, too! Well, OK, I keep meaning to get over there and play, but then I forget. What was I doing again??
