Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm having the very best of Thanksgivings. I'm sitting in my daughter's (ap3) livingroom (recently redone and beautiful), with a fire in the fireplace, it's snowing outside, and the young folks are doing all the cooking.

There's a Johnny Mathis CD playing Christmas songs, and the TV is showing the Macy's T-day parade with the sound muted.

I love this wireless laptop of ap3's. I may have to gift myself with one.

Amid all this love and loveliness, I am thinking of you and yours. You are real people to me. Not just obscure identities on the 'net. May you have your best Thanksgiving today. If you do not celebrate this holiday, I hope that whatever you are doing, you are at peace and in good health.

Love to all.

I'm jealous!! It did start to flurry/snow last night - the girls were SOOO excited. This morning we just had a dusting left. It's pretty windy, so it's blowing away.

Have a happy!!

We're all thinking of you 3D!

Aww TLP and dddragon ... glad I caught you both. Say hi to Niks and AP3, and Actonbell if she calls. Of course you are real to me. Dear, real, wildly funny Lucy. Happy Thanksgiving. It sounds like it'll be one of our good ones. ♥ xoxo oh, and I want one of those laptops, too. And an Ipod. And, and, and (Jim, you reading this?)

Hope you guys have a great day today.

Bela said...

You sound so cosy. It's lovely. :-)

Happy Thanksgiving to you and all your family!

Sounds awesome Lucy! Eat plenty and enjoy!

Wireless laptops totally rule. You MUST get one. Just thing, you can blog from anyplace that has a wireless hotspot!

My Thanksgiving is almost ready to start. I am just about ready for some beer. Some dark, heavy beer. In otherwords - STOUT!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and everyone you know. Except for the people you know but do not like. For them, I hope their turkey explodes in the oven.

"with a fire in the fireplace". Really? Is there anywhere else to have one?

I'm eagarly awaiting your next adventure.

Johnny Mathis? I would have thought that you had grown out of that stage!

Jamie Dawn said...

You have many blessings. So do I.
Have a wonderful day with Aral and family.

Minka said...

Happy Thanksgiving TLP and family.
And yes Keith, it is possible to have a fire not in a fireplace. You can have it almost everywhere, although that would not be well seen by the neighbours.
There actually is a DVD you can buy and play it on your TV...it is an image of a burning fire with all the right sounds and stuff...
Ain´t technology a blast ? :)

I have to admit I never once worried you wouldn't have a great time but it's nice to hear. You're real to me, too, blogmama although I have a confession to make.

I'm computer generated.

I am happy to hear you have a great thanksgiving. Ours went wonderfully too. :)

Monique said...

Glad you are having a great Thanksgiving! No snow for us here in Florida. :( I love Johnny Mathis at Christmas, and I love my wireless laptop too. You must get one!

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

Lovely wish and so very thoughtful..I thank you for that and I am so hapy I stopped by tonight!

OldHorsetailSnake said...

Me think of you, too. Me Tarzan, you Lucy. Too much snow for a tree house, though, I guess.

schnoodlepooh said...

Awwwww... those are very nice thoughts for a nice Thanksgiving day. My best to you also.

You are real people to me. Not just obscure identities on the 'net. You know, I feel the very same way. Which has alarmed me before, because it seems so... nerdy and needy. But it isn't. It's a way to connect with others who are like-minded, whom you might never get a chance to meet under other circumstances.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I know it's filled with love, because your family is.

actonbell said...

I feel all warm, just from your description. Happy weekend!!!

Libby said...

Glad you had a GREAT Thanksgiving! I hope you ate tons, like I did!! and, i feel all 'warm and fuzzy' cuz you think of us as real friends, as we feel about you, too!!
BoUnCeS!! LibbY!

Lucy said...

Happy Thanksgiving to you too. I miss the snow during the holidays..- we use to live in Illinois, but now in NC.

WiFi is great. I take the laptop with us on our RV trips - so i can stay in touch. Many campgrounds now offer free Wifi - like the one we are in right now in the Outer Banks. Hotels do too. WiFi..to me the greatest invention of the 21st century.

Isn't it wonderful when the young ones take over the cooking!!?? Hope it all turned out well, and you enjoyed the food.

Happy Thanksgiving TLP:) We don't celebrate it in Malaysia but my brother ( who's based in California currently with his wife ) reminded me. I have a lot to be thankful for this year. Most of all, for passing the exams recently ( results were out 25/11/05) Am currently in my third year masters and after having to resit the first part I've always always had the fear I would also have to go through the second part TWICE. Thankfully not. So what's left is the thesis:) Such a relief. Happy happy thanksgiving:)

Happy Thanksgiving back to ya! Belated though it is.

Sounds beautiful where you are. Envious of the snow. It's sunny and warm here.

Sometimes I get tired of sunny and warm, you know?

Enjoy!
