...and I'm about to take a blogging break
I'm thankful for this little guy
Yes, I'm going to pull out the corny-but-funny Thanksgiving forecast I post every year! But first, I want to let you know that I'll be taking a blogging break for the next several days. I should be back around Wednesday, November 28th, Lord willing and if the creek don't rise!
I can't let this opportunity pass without expressing some of the many things for which I'm thanking God this season.
As always, my wonderful husband, children and extended family...but this year, a precious new person: my wonderful little grandson Payton. He is making his first visit to my home this holiday--unless you count Christmas last year, when he was inside his mommy's tummy. My heartfelt thanks to God for such a beautiful, wonderful little grandchild!
And although finding out I have Type 2 diabetes wasn't a funfest, I do thank God for not letting my friend Teri give up on making me take the blood sugar test that revealed the condition. It has actually ended up being a blessing, since a commitment to healthy eating and exercise has made me feel better than ever!
I could go on, but the Lord knows all the things for which I'm deeply, deeply thankful.
I want to wish all of you a wonderful, blessed and joyful Thanksgiving!
And now, as promised:
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 diminish 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.
