Happy Thanksgiving From Our Table To Yours~

This post is a little late, but as I like to say..."better late than never."

This morning we awoke to gusty 40+ mph winds, and then IT happened...yes, I had just gotten out of the shower, started applying my makeup, and the first bang was heard, then the next, followed by the lights flickering, then another bang-bang-bang (okay, by now I'd lost count)...and then total darkness, wet hair and all! UGH!!!

We would not regain power until several hours later.  I was just praying it would come back on in time for me to rewet my hair, and dry it prior to having to take the baby to her doctor's appointment.  I know, most would just go with the flow and put it up in a pony tail and call it a day.  Well, I would have too EXCEPT...I cut my hair short a few weeks ago, and let's just ain't pretty left to dry on its own!! LOL  Yes, call me vain...but I was not about to have a bad hair day today.

Fast forward...the table is set, and several dishes are in the oven.  Yes, I cook most ahead of time since we own a condo size oven despite we live in a house big enough for a family of 4 or more!!!  Let's just say our poor little oven and toaster oven get a workout this time of year.

So without further ado...from our table to yours...Happy Thanksgiving.  May your day be Blessed with family, blessings, laughter, and a grateful heart!

Our well was stuck by lightening once and my two older girls went to the gym two moorings to take showers and dry their hair before school. The people at the front desk were so confused because they didn't check in to go workout - they were just using the locker room. I HAVE to dry my hair for it to look decent because it is so fine. That wash a wear look doesn't suit me either. We have had cold rain and wind all day at the coast of NC. Your table is beautiful!

Hi Lauren, Your table looks so inviting and the perfect spot for a blessed Thanksgiving. I saw your link at Diana's and the comment about the KD that they think is also the illness for CJK. Just wanted to stop by and meet you and say thanks for your comment for Diana. It made a world of difference and just shows there is so much good in blogging.

I had to smile about your power going out with wet hair. Been there too and I could never just leave my hair either and go with the flow. I would scare everyone in sight!! LOL
Sure enjoyed my visit to your blog and now a new follower.
Hugs, Celestina Marie
