Lookin' Up!

Thank you for asking how the arm, wrist and hand are after the barrel won that round.
Things are looking up!
Today's progress is the following:

There are two of these pumpkin pies, now in the refrigerator.

These 7 custard cups, shown baking in the oven, are the leftover pumpkin filling. Custard cups with custard in them! Who would have thought that they had a purpose other than to be stacked in a cupboard?

One thawing 20 pound turkey is now nicely thawed in wait for tomorrow's bread stuffing. (That's chunked bread, 2 sticks melted butter, diced onion, thinly sliced celery, dashes of salt and lemon pepper.) Russ is moving the turkey around for me as the wrist is not ready to support the weight of a frozen 20 pound turkey quite yet.

Can you believe two matching slippers? Yes, I finally finished the second one as wrist and hand allowed.

Finally, but not least, Happy Thanksgiving Thursday to those of us living in the USA or Overseas who celebrate our many blessings.

Sounds like you and I are very similar in the "over cleaning" area, although I would argue that there could ever be such a thing.

However, when Jessica (from Rosekimknits) was at my house this summer she did think my pantry was a little like "sleeping with the enemy" with all the can labels lined up perfectly and everything organized by categories and labeled.

Have a wonderful thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your DH. Barrel may have won round one, but you came up fighting and seem to be doing well, which is something to be thankful for.

Another FO is another blessing.

I would think the Pilgrims would agree that there are many things to be thankful for.

Happy Turkey a wee bit late. I had steak, Jim had scallops. We had wine and enjoyed the show. :) Glad to be home though, and the kids are glad we are too.

Very pleased to hear the arm is better. Hugs all around.
