Thankful Thursday #63
I am so thankful for so many things everyday.
Halloween is over and now we move on to Thanksgiving. I am thankful for a season of counting blessings. It's easy to get overwhelmed with life and forget the things that are going right.
I just love this time of year.
I have always loved Halloween. I grew up with my dad, grandfathers, and uncles teasing me and pranks were something they did "to make us girls tough."
It worked. It also helps to learn not to take things too seriously at times and to just have fun. I was telling someone the other day that my dad and two uncles loved to tease my grandmother. She worked in the real estate office with them and was the secretary and she didn't get paid enough some days!
They loved her dearly and she knew it, but they definitely liked to tease her. I remember one year for Thanksgiving she made a couple of mistakes with dessert and, of course, they teased her about it for years.
My dad loves egg custard. My grandparents divorced when I was little so my grandmother didn't cook much. She would eat at our house or my aunt's and would go with whoever was going out to eat. Cooking a big meal had to be a little overwhelming when she wasn't used to it.
She made an egg custard that year and a sweet potato pie. My dad and uncle took a bite of the custard at the same time and just looked really funny at each other. At first, they didn't know what to say. It must have been obvious because she asked them what was wrong and then it immediately came to her. She said, "oh no, I forgot the sugar!" They had a really good laugh and went onto sweet potato pie instead.
Again, they tried to get a bite and they both just started laughing so loud. She forgot to remove the paper liner from the frozen crust! Everything else was great, but dessert was a joke for a long time!
Halloween is always a fun time for tricks. I got my own last night. I was working and had the TV on, there are always such good shows on, especially the paranormal ones. Well, we had an outtage of internet and cable for a little while. I called it in and I guess I was the only person in the house watching TV while working on the computer because they thought it was just my house. I will admit, that was a little eerie until I found out it was out in the area. My sister and her family got home from trick or treating along with my parents coming home from my brother's house and theirs was out too.
Well, this is all treat and no trick, but I have a sale going on with my new Harvest Moon and Church Steeple Pendant Necklaces. I have them 20% off. There are a few listings, but I have more chain so if you see one you like just message me. I am going to keep listings going and adding a few more.
