A Beautiful Thankful Hodgepodge

1. Besides U.S. Thanksgiving, it's also National Game and Puzzle Week...what game have you played most recently, and who were you with? Have you worked a puzzle of any kind in the past week?
Being a Speech Pathologist, I play games quite often! This week, we played a little game that the kids really enjoy. There are "pieces of pie" that are placed in 4 groups. The kids decide what kind of pie they want (there are 6 choices), and then they take turns (after saying words with their sound) picking a piece of pie to see who will finish their pie first. It gets the kids up and moving.
No puzzles this week...every now and then I'll do one with some of my students, though.

2. What is one place you were thankful for this year?

The Keys. I don't think I need to say anything else about that!

3. Take a nap, watch football, go for an after dinner walk, or hit the stores...whichONE is on your must-do list for Thanksgiving day? For those of you playing along who aren't in the US, answer as it relates to any big holiday meal.

Go for an after dinner walk.

4. Besides Thanksgiving, what's your favorite home cooked meal?

My mom's lasagna.

5. What product from an infomercial would you most like to own?

One of those laser hair removal systems. Seriously. One of the downsides of menopause!

6. Christmas shopping? Have you begun? Finished? Will you shop on Black Friday? How do you feel about stores opening on Thanksgiving Day? What percentage of your Christmas shopping is done online?

A few weeks ago, I mentioned that I bought a present for my SIL. That's still the only present I've bought so far! I hate that the stores are open on Thanksgiving. You won't catch me at one that day...or the next morning. I might go out in the afternoon after the crowds have thinned out. I don't do a lot of shopping online...mainly because I wait until the last minute!

7. What are you most grateful for that adds beauty to your everyday life?

I hope everyone has a safe and happy Thanksgiving Holiday! If you're not in the U.S.A., have a wonderful weekend!


  1. Those Smoky Mountain views are some of the best in the world! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! Hoping your dad is surrounded by people he loves this year.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving to you too! I love the view. You know the Smoky Mountains are one of my favorite places in the world.

  3. I totally agree with you on #5. I wonder if those things work...hmmm

    I look forward to using my Lodge skillet tonite to make `Comfort Chicken` :)

    Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy

  4. What a beautiful view! I could definitely enjoy that too. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  5. That is a great view! Something I wouldn't get tired of! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!


  6. I'm sure your Mom's lasagna is delicious! Our family likes mine, too.
    I'd be grateful for that view, as well :) Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

  7. My mom also has her famous lasagna, which i love but i like the enchiladas better. Its funny she grew up in England and never had Mexican food but now she loves it!
    I can see we both agreed on the hair remover! :) I wonder if it would actually work.

  8. So funny how I interrupted #7 as opposed to most everyone else. Guess that's what makes the HP so much fun! Wishing you and yours a happy day tomorrow!

  9. That is an amazing view for sure! I trust you and your family will have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day. Geaux SEC!

  10. I enjoyed your answers! Wishing you and yours a blessed Thanksgiving!

  11. Well....you must have moved forward on your Christmas gift list by now. Get ready: I'm going to brag now. I MAILED MY CHRISTMAS CARDS TODAY! Yippee!!! done, done, done.
