I for one have much to be thankful for and due to the line of work my MiB is in I for one am so very thankful for freedom. I am also thankful for a risen Savior who cares about every detail of my life. I am thankful for family and friends who are scattered all over the world as well. I hope you took the time to be thankful and to tell at least one person if not more that you are thankful for them and why.
We had a great dinner with 18 around the table this year. The food was plentiful and the naps, football watching, guitar hero, dominos that followed along with snacking on leftovers and eating the pies throughout the afternoon was awesome. I am going to need to be back in the gym after the eating frenzy that took place!
I am thankful I have a place to live even though I prefer to no longer be a homeowner...yes, the house is still for sale and hopefully there is a buyer in our near future.

Oh my, we found the neatest little cafe with food that was just super YUMMY! The choices were vast but we ate light because we knew we wanted to indulge in cupcakes and yogurt later. MiB ordered the caprese and I the #2 brushchetta. Both wonderful and we shared!
And last but not least we tracked down the yogurt. I had the pomegranate with toppings of fresh pomegranate, fresh blueberries that were just huge and coconut, it was so good, MiB tried the pinkberry smoothie. It was good, but I think he would choose the yogurt cup with toppings if he went again. This was very, very yummy stuff and I want to go again!
Anywho, last evening after negotiating some pretty rough LA traffic which is way worse then DC we made our way to dinner at her place where as always she treated us and provided us with much humor from her daily life. I can say I don't think there is ever a dull moment with the bird, she is constantly meeting the need, challenging the masses and taking care of those in blue, she is truly a rare breed. We have known this all along and that is why Man In Blue takes any and every opportunity to sit in her presence...he says he tries to take in as much as he can as she is still one of the sane ones out there. One who knows what we should be doing, and more importantly how we should be doing it! She is so no nonsense!
Since MiB didn't cook dinner we had him cleanup!!! :)

It is nice to have someone else make your bed once in awhile

It's lovely and sunny and we are definitely being wined and dined and feeling like pampered special VIPs. We even saw Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis, Jr sing Up, Up and Away and also saw Rick Schroder from NYPD Blue and Silver Spoons at this shindig last night.

We drove out mid-week to check on our camper; she was doing great but it was still good to get our hands on her for some hugs!
I WON!!!! I am a winner over at CandidCarrie's!
I finally found black pumps for our California trip.
My hubby cut his own hair today so I did not have to.
I still need brown casual shoes but not for the trip, so it's okay.
Christmas shopping for nieces/nephews will be done tomorrow.
THE shoes that will do...

We are wrapping up our study of Daniel. Not sure where we will venture next. No matter it's all good!

There are two or more sides to each story!
Time can pass extremely quickly or drag by very slowly.
Happiest and saddest of times can happen in the airport.

I think the following verse says it much better then I can...
My desire is, first of all, that you will make requests and prayers and give praise for all men; For kings and all those in authority; so that we may have a calm and quiet life in all fear of God and serious behaviour. This is good and pleasing in the eyes of God our Saviour; Whose desire is that all men may have salvation and come to the knowledge of what is true. I Timothy 2:1-4
I am glad I know who holds my future, for I know not what my earthly future holds...

The lines may be long, the workers may or may not smile, the parking could be horrendous, the weather may or may not be pleasant but please, please, please make it a point to vote. You vote will count, it does count and it does matter so again, I ask you to make it a point to vote.
Thank you! Enjoy your evening!
