Happy Thanksgiving, Y’all!

Woke up just after 7:00 am to the quiet hum of the furnace blowing warm air throughout the house.  Too cold for the heat pumps as they don’t work below 32 degrees…so when it gets below 32 degrees everything automatically switches over to the furnace.  Thankfully, the coach is insulated very well and we were never uncomfortable at all.

After finishing my morning routine (email, Facebook, Candy Crush, etc) I made some omelets for breakfast and then made the banana pudding for our Thanksgiving feast.  I also added some fresh bananas to the fruit salad we made yesterday – if you add them too early they just turn brown and make the whole fruit salad look yucky.  When both dishes were completed Michael took them out to the refrigerator (truck!) to store them until dinner.

We watched the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade while eating breakfast….it really is a fun way to start off the holidays….not sure I’d ever be interested in actually attending the parade as there are SO many people there…think I’ll just stick to watching it from the comfort of my recliner!

We spent about 3 hours down at Sandy & Stan’s place enjoying our Thanksgiving meal with several of their children, grandchildren and friends.  The other camphost couple here at the park were also there.  It was very nice to share the meal and visit with everyone.  We had a fire going and everyone was dressed well enough to stay warm…especially while sitting in the sun.

We had TONS of food left over but were able to give some to a couple that are here camping in a tent.  I think that they’re homeless so it felt especially good to send them back to their campsite with their hands full of food.

We came home and settled in for the night.  We watched a couple of Christmas movies that were on the DVR, watched ‘A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving’ and even ate popcorn like Charlie served to his friends for Thanksgiving.  It was a nice way to end the holiday.

We’re hoping that each and every one of you were able to enjoy this Thanksgiving day with your loved ones and friends and remembered to count each and every one of your blessings…not just today but every day!

 

We want to hear from you...whatcha got to say??
