      Hi. Saw some beautiful things today. Especially that dogwood and the reflections in the water. Did you have a nice day?

      You know the song! 😊😊😊 How was your “truck stop” Thanksgiving?

          Sorry to hear that. Thanksgiving is hard away from family. I didn’t get to see my side. Seems weird without them. 🌻

    Loved the photo of the clam shell. Brought back memories of my boys scrounging along the river bank to see what treasures they could find. Clam shells, especially both halves, always ranked high.

      I’m so happy!! I bet they had great times! I love those ones that are still hooked together. We call them Angel wings. We saw a bunch of them today. Guardian angels everywhere! ❤️

      How did your Thanksgiving go? A full house, I guess? Bet your desserts were a big hit. Thought of you both Wednesday and Thursday. I am making your rice stuffing today. We’re staying home today and making our turkey. 😊😊

        Thanksgiving went great! Yes a full house. My sister in law brought her widowed mother and another sister brought a friend who had no family around. It was wonderful. Only about 1/2 of the 2nd pumpkin pie is left. I don’t think that will last long. Let me know how you liked the stuffing!

        • Jessica November 25, 2016 / 3:28 pm

          Oh, how wonderful. I love how you have open arms and bring others into your home. Bet by now, that pumpkin pie is about gone! I’m making your rice stuffing right now. It won’t technically be “stuffed” because the turkey went on the smoker this morning…but my kitchen smells sooooo good from the rice stuffing!

        • Jessica November 25, 2016 / 4:58 pm

          I’ve got it on my fork right now! Yum!! I almost cried happy tears when it was cooking, it looked so good!

          • Jessica November 25, 2016 / 8:16 pm

            Oh my gosh. It was so good that I ate some for dinner AND dessert!

          • Jessica November 25, 2016 / 8:16 pm

            Did you see my latest post? ❤️

          • thechickengrandma November 25, 2016 / 8:25 pm

            I have not had a chance yet. I share the computer with my husband! I will get on over there!

          • Jessica November 25, 2016 / 8:36 pm

            How nice that you share. ❤️

    I’ll happily follow! Hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving, Jess :)

    • Jessica November 25, 2016 / 3:39 am

      Lovely and nature seem to go hand in hand. And, for that, I am grateful. :)

    • Jessica November 25, 2016 / 7:58 am

      Thank you so much! ☃☀️🌸

    Happy Thanksgiving!! Our Thanksgiving Day was a lovely day, altho it was so different without my son and family and missing the loved ones who had passed on recently. I’m overwhelmed with all the blessings in my life….so many things to be thankful for.
    PS I got my 3 loads of hay loaded!!!
    Anytime!!
    NOT going shopping today. Daughter-in-law in at the mall in Springfield. Brave/Crazy woman

    • Jessica November 25, 2016 / 9:05 am

      Oh my gosh!! She’s at the MALL?!?! No way am I going anywhere near that place til January! Ha ha! She must be brave!

      Happy to hear you had a lovely Thanksgiving. “Different” is a good word for Thanksgivings when people are missing from the table. Ours was interesting. 💜

      Today my husband got up early and put our turkey and pork roast on the smoker. LB and I are going to make mashed potatoes, brown beans, rice stuffing (Thanks to Faye at The Chicken Grandma) and some kind of dessert.

      Our oven is still broken, which is ok. On Betty Crocker.com I found cakes you can make in a crockpot. Yesterday we made a crockpot apple crisp.

      Good for you for getting your hay. I admire how you can drive a tractor and get things done. Sorry I missed your call back. I loved your message! You’re so sweet! ❤️😊❤️

        It’s such a beautiful day here in Kansas. Hope you are having one too. I love the smell of food cooking on a smoker. And I love to eat it too!! Rice stuffing, that sounds good. Will have to mosey over to Chicken Grandma and check it out. I’ve also seen some stuffing recipes using garbanzo beans that looked good. Crockpot Apple crisp sounds delish. Gotta stop talking about food. I’m getting hungry!!
        I think the shoppers are heading to a favorite Mexican restaurant. I know she will have a few margaritas.

        • Jessica November 25, 2016 / 6:36 pm

          Wish you would’ve been here eating with us. Oh my gosh. It was SO good. I ate soooooo much. I never do that! Ha.

          The rice stuffing was amazing. I’ve never had garbanzo bean stuffing. I bet that is good. I didn’t make a dessert and now wish I would’ve. Wish I had some GF cobbler.

          What’s her favorite Mexican restaurant? Mexican Villa?

    Beautiful photos Jess. I hope you had a happy thanksgiving. Even though we don’t celebrate it here I consider every day to be a thankful day. Hugs to you my dear friend. I’ve missed you. ❤️

    • Jessica November 26, 2016 / 5:38 pm

      I love that- every day a thankful day. Thank you for your comments. That dogwood was so gorgeous in the sunlight. And, I can never pass up a reflection. I miss you, too, sweetie. Hugs back!

      I got halfway through the post about your sisters arm, got to finish it…
