Thanksgiving Blessings

There is still  so much that needs to be accomplished  at the house in Hooterville within the next few weeks so we  (hubby, daughter and her boyfriend who has no family in Florida, and I) have all decided to use Thanksgiving day as a work day at the property.  The four of us  will, however,  take a break in the early evening  to have our Thanksgiving dinner at a little home-style buffet restaurant a few miles down the road from the new house.    Admittedly, this is quite a departure from our usual huge traditional home-cooked meal with all of the extended family present but it only took us about 5 seconds to agree we are okay with that this year.  What better way is there for us to appreciate and celebrate our good fortune to be blessed with this new home and the opportunity to live what we have dreamed about?
To all my American readers, wherever and however  you spend your Thanksgiving, I want to wish you and yours a bountiful and blessed Thanksgiving holiday from My Cottage of Bliss.

Happy Thanksgiving, dearest Shari. I know you have been so busy ever since you purchased your new home. It has been such fun watching the progression of a house being made into a home. Hugs, Cindy S.

Shari, thank you for sharing your experiences with your new home. My husband asks me everyday how things are going in Hootersville. When I told him about the cement truck and filling in the sunken living room pictures he had to see them right away! And one of my most wonderful memories of Thanksgiving was when my family went out to a little diner for Thanksgiving dinner. Just think about how wonderful next year will be in the new house! Best wishes,
Charlotte B
