It's that time of the year....

in Central Illinois and I am up bright and early. Awake at 5 AM, so I just got up. Company coming today, but just for lunch. Well actually family, as my brother and sister-in-law are on the way from the St Louis area. Not to stay all night as originally planned, but to have lunch and then get on the road to Northern Illinois before the predicted winter storm hits. They wanted to take me out to lunch, but I have cooked a turkey and we will have the regular Thanksgiving type meal. This is because I had that other turkey I bought before Thanksgiving taking up all of the room in my freezer. Hey, that is another thing I miss from my old home, a separate freezer. I do miss the garage and washer and dryer more though. Not complaining, just reminiscing.
Today is my son-in-law’s birthday. Happy Birthday Mike. Soon you will catch up with me as I get younger each year and you get older each year. Mike is recuperating well from his knee surgery and is about to wind up his therapy.
And now back to the weather. It is 23 degrees F right now. We do have a winter storm advisory out for tonight with 3 – 5 inches of snow predicted. Looking for my ship to come in so I can have a home in the south for the winter and back home to the Illinois heat and humidity in the summer.
I do want to take a moment again to remember our troops stationed all around the world looking out for our safety. May God Bless you all. I wish you all could be home with your families for Christmas. My constant prayer is for peace on earth!
Guess I better get busy with the fixings that go along with the turkey. Love that stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy. That is the best part.
