Thursday Thirteen

Things I will do today:

1. Prepare and cook a turkey.It is a 14-pound bird, which I hope will be big enough to feed seven. I use a cooking bag, which I have never had fail to produce a very juicy, sweet, tender bird.

2. Write in my journal.

3. Prepare and cook Irish spice bread. I found a recipe for this online and I am eager to try this out. It sounds yummy. I'll let you know how it turns out.

4. Drink tea. Drink water. Drink more water.

5. Eat a lot. But not until evening.

6. Watch the Macy's parade. Well, I will have it on the TV. I don't usually watch all of it.

7. Create a blog entry for a Thursday Thirteen.

8. Regret that I am not more original for the Thursday Thirteen.

9. Prepare and cook cornbread.

10. Cut up celery.

11. Take all food up to my mother-in-law's for the big Thanksgiving dinner.

12. See the in-laws and outlaws, kiss the brethren, enjoy listening to the nephews talk about their lives. Help clear the table when we're done.

13. Go to bed early!

Best wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving to all of my U.S. readers; may you feel blessed on this day; I hope that all of you feel blessed each and every day of your lives. My good wishes to you all for reading. Thank you for being a part of my life!

Thursday Thirteen is played by lots of people; there is a list here. I've been playing for a while and this is my 269th time to do a list of 13 on a Thursday.


  1. Sounds pretty traditional to me. Nothing wrong with that, eh? I'll probably be traditional, too, but I think I'll do it in the nude!!!! Bwhahahahaha

  2. Always, always (my boss used to tell me) write achievable goals--they'll make you look good. Great list, and have a happy Thanksgiving.

  3. Good luck with getting all of these things done - especially getting to bed early! I wish I could do that! LOL!

    Happy TT!

  4. No family this year, so we will volunteer and then have our turkey breast for two on Friday. Hey! You gotta have leftovers!

  5. Goodluck in going to bed early! As I am typing I am eating but not enough drinking ^-^

  6. Half an hour away from eating a big Thanksgiving pot luck at my neighbor's farm. What a nice day, huh?!

  7. Several years ago we all agreed that having the big dinner too late for lunch and too early for supper was stupid. We don't watch anything on TV or have any other reason to time it oddly. So we're having our bird late.

  8. Happy Thanksgiving! Your list sounds lovely (and tasty). :)

  9. Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you've gotten everything you wanted to get done finished.

  10. I hope you had a good Thanksgiving, Anita. I spent the long weekend with friends. We did not get to bed early any night, and I missed the parade. Long, tiring weekend, but a fairly good one.


I enjoy your comments and always appreciate the opportunity to visit the blogs of my readers. I hope you have a great day!
