Ready for the big Thanksgiving Day?

Apple Pie ....yuuummmmmm...
that is on my list of to-do's before Thanksgiving ....along with corn pudding
and broccoli/cauliflower casserole 
and cranberry salad.
Fortunately, I will be toting all of my dishes over to my brother's home.
We will have over 30 in our party this year as our family keeps growing and growing.
He has a big beautiful home ....not a little cottage like mine.  :)
I am not complaining though...I LOVE my little cottage!
I was watching "The Holiday" the other evening with my daughter ....do you remember the movie?
It has Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet.
Love that movie...
But anyway the little Rose Hill Cottage in England reminds me so much of my own little cottage....
and that is my kind of home....just old and charming.  :)

Just a little update.....things are coming along with work.  I have to get my insurance license....
life/health and also my property and casualty license.
that means lots and lots of studying...
work, work, work....  :)
LOL!  Just thankful I have a wonderful job and have a reason for the loads of studying!
So much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving season!!
Counting my blessings, one by one......soooooo many to count...
too many to count!  But too many blessings is not something we complain about though, now is it?  :)

I have been enjoying the last few robins at my antique bird drinking trough before they head south for the winter!
I know it won't be long before I will have my eyes sharpened, hoping to see one of those little fellows again....my first hope and sign of spring.

I have not been in blogland for a while because of the work and studying...no time to visit.
I am sure I will have more time after the holidays and having those license under my belt!

But in the meantime, Happy, Happy, Happy Thanksgiving to YOU! 
Don't eat too much apple (or pumpkin) pie!  :)

Hi Carolyn ~ was glad to hear from you today, knowing how busy you've been. Enjoy your wonderful family and all that good food. I'll be toting a turkey and trimmings to my son's home, and really looking forward to it this year. Many blessings to you as we celebrate this season of Thanksgiving. I'll be keeping you in prayer for good success on those tests. xo
