Thanksgiving 2

Today I am thankful for having the day off!!

I'm also thankful for my family.  We're having another baby in the family come late May or early June compliments of my bigger little brother and his wife.  This will be their 2nd and we hope and pray that she carries this one to term.

She had 2 miscarriages before my nephew, so SIL is a bit nervous and will be for the next oh 4 - 6 weeks.  The doc says all looks great.

How exciting!         

I spent my day on laundry......the dreaded ironing.  I also made a homemade chicken pot pie AND a pot of chili.  Tom's request.  He and Miss T had pizza for dinner.....roomie and I had the chicken.

It has been very windy here all day due to Noel.  No rain, I'm sad to say....we need the rain!  The temps are cooling off, but I can hardly tell it during the day.....I'm still running the A/C.  Tom thinks I'm nuts for it, but what can I say?

Must be my wacko hormones.  Esp since AOL is telling me it's 59 outside right now (10:30pm). 

 Roomie rode over to Topsail this afternoon and called "get over here".....she said the waves were cresting as far as the horizon and were spraying up some 20 feet as they crashed on the shore.

I didn't take the time to go over and I'm sure I missed some great photo ops......maybe tomorrow I'll go shell hunting.  To be sure the storm tossed up some beautiful seashells.  Who knows, maybe I'll find something spectacular.

Nite all!

Congratulations to her.  I do hope that it will be an uneventful pregnancy and all will go well.  I heard about that hurricane in the Atlantic.  Have a good weekend. : )
