..as I prepare to take a blogging break...
I will be taking the time tomorrow to give special thanks to God for His many blessings. So many things for which to be thankful!
Also, this note: I'll be taking a blogging break as I head off to Texas to visit my loved ones there. Lord willing and if the creek don't rise, as they say, I should be back on Wednesday, November 29th.
And good news for you Evie Tornquist Karlsson fans: I have made contact with Evie and I will be interviewing her shortly after I return. And of course, you'll hear all about it in this blog. The thirst for Evie knowledge never seems to diminish, and I promise we'll get caught up on all things Evie.
And now, my traditional---
Thanksgiving Day Forecast
Turkeys will thaw in the morning, then warm in the oven to an afternoon high near 190F. The kitchen will turn hot and humid, and if you bother the cook, be ready for a severe squall or cold shoulder.
During the late afternoon and evening, the cold front of a knife will slice through the turkey, causing an accumulation of one to two inches on plates. Mashed potatoes will drift across one side while cranberry sauce creates slippery spots on the other. Please pass the gravy.
A weight watch and indigestion warning have been issued for the entire area, with increased stuffiness around the beltway. During the evening, the turkey will dimish and taper off to leftovers, dropping to a low of 34F in the refrigerator.
Looking ahead to Friday and Saturday, high pressure to eat sandwiches will be established. Flurries of leftovers can be expected both days with a 50 percent chance of scattered soup late in the day. We expect a warming trend where soup develops. By early next week, eating pressure will be low as the only wish left will be the bone.
Happy Thanksgiving Day, and may God richly bless you!
