Sit a Spell

My name is Connie.  I am southern born and raised and have lived in the Macon area for six years with my husband, three children (who are not so little anymore!), three dogs, a cat, three cows, one of which is like a pet and named Bella and a woodpecker that has moved in and made his life’s mission to destroy our front porch.  My family will tell you that I always have something to say so I thought blogging would be fun, a place where I can ramble about our life in the country, this lovely town that we have fallen in love with and now call home and maybe I will throw in a recipe or two!  I believe that a day without laughter is a day wasted so “sit a spell” with me and hopefully I can put a smile on your face!

Thursday is Thanksgiving.  Christmas and Thanksgiving run a tight race of being my favorite holidays!  I love being able to get together with family, watch the parade on TV, have a great meal, and watch football and pass out from all the food!  Thanksgiving and Christmas is a little different for us since we moved to Missouri.  We usually do not go back home for the holidays.  It is just too hard to travel in that short amount of time so it’s just my husband and the kids to celebrate.  But that’s okay because we have started our own traditions since moving here.  Food usually consists of fried turkey (YAY my husband gets to do that part!), cornbread dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole, homemade macaroni and cheese, deviled eggs and sweet potato or pumpkin pie.  It’s enough food to feed several families but we have it for a couple of days!  We always eat on my grandma’s china during Thanksgiving so that always makes it feel special too!  I usually decorate and put up the Christmas tree on the Friday after Thanksgiving.  Since the kids are older I don’t do the black Friday shopping.  I don’t really have the patience for that anymore.  I would rather just wait and go when it is less busy and not a zoo, which in my opinion is what that day has turned into. 

I think Marcie in Charlie Brown’s Thanksgiving said it best.  “But Thanksgiving is more than eating Chuck.  We should be thankful for being together.  I think that’s what they mean by ‘Thanksgiving’, Charlie Brown.

Whatever your traditions are for Thanksgiving, I wish you all a blessed day.  We have so much to be thankful for this holiday season.  Remember those in the armed forces, especially those that can’t get home for the holidays because they are bravely serving our country!
