Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my readers! It's a sunny but cool day here in Fredsville and as I write this the delicious smell of roasting turkey is tantilizing us... Mmmmm, can't wait for turkey dinner, just a few more hours... turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, spiced crabapple jelly, squash, carrots and broccoli, rolls, salad, and warm apple pie and cheddar to top it off.. groan....
On such a perfect day (10-10-10) one can't help but be grateful for the fortunate lives we lead. I am so very thankful for my health, my wonderful family and friends,and the wonderful place in which I live. I am so lucky to live in Fredericton - such a beautiful small city in the Maritimes - I wouldn't trade it for anywhere. Yessiree, I am a proud Maritimer and certainly a proud Canadian.

So, in case you're wondering about today- here's the Thanksgiving Day forecast....

Turkeys will thaw in the morning, then warm in the oven to an afternoon high near 390F. The kitchen will turn hot and humid, and if you bother the cook, be ready for a severe squall or cold shoulder.

During the late afternoon and evening, the cold front of a knife will slice through the turkey, causing an accumulation of one to two inches on plates..
Mashed potatoes will drift across one side while cranberry sauce creates slippery spots on the other. Please pass the gravy.

A weight watch and indigestion warning has been issued for the entire area, with increased stuffiness around the beltway.

During the evening, the turkey will diminish and taper off to leftovers, dropping to a low of 34F in the refrigerator.

Looking ahead to Monday and Tuesday, high pressure to eat sandwiches will be established. Flurries of leftovers can be expected both days with a 50 percent chance of scattered soup late in the day. We expect a warming trend where soup develops. By later next week, eating pressure will be low as the only wish left will be the bone.



God is Good...

Thank God for dirty dishes
They have a tale to tell
While others may go hungry,
We're eating very well.

With home, health and happiness,
I shouldn't want to fuss-
By the stack of evidence,
God's very good to us.
