I am thankful for the sense of smell!  Our house is already beginning to smell like the holidays.  Being able to smell familiar foods is such an amazing “comfort.”  Plus, I have cinnamon candles burning everywhere!

When you smell certain foods, do your memories of past holidays come flooding back?

I am thankful for HELP… read that right.  Grown DD # 2 picked up the “boys” yesterday afternoon and they all spent the night at her house.  I love all my kids/grands, but nearly 20 hours of “peace & quiet” is heaven sometimes! 

P.S.  I made her a chocolate pie to repay her thoughtfulness!  She had said, she wanted a whole chocolate pie just for “her” for Thanksgiving.  Well, on Thanksgiving we will have Apple, Lemon, Pecan and Pumpkin, along with a Four Layer Chocolate Pie….so, she got her plain old chocolate pie today! ;)

Also, very thankful honey hunk was not “badly” injured yesterday.  One of the horses managed to kick him.  It was just a glancing blow on his right hip.  Thankful he didn’t catch it in his rib cage!
