It's a day to reflect on all the blessings I have received this year.  Most of all I am thankful that Jesus is my Lord and Savior.  The other things that are up there in the top 5, in no particular order, are a job I love, a great family, many wonderful and special friends, and good health.  I am truly blessed.

I spent the day with my folks and one of my brothers, 2 of his kids and his friend who has pretty much become a part of our family.  I did my first turkey today.  It was not all that hard.  I might try it someday on my own.  I probably should get a roasting pan first though.  Can't imagine doing one in those flimsy throw-away aluminum pans they have for them.

Winter already???

What is the deal?  Last week up through Thursday it was shirt-sleeve weather.  In fact, we set a record for 4 70-degree days in a row in Nov.  By Saturday evening we had snow on the ground!  It didn't go away until yesterday during the day.  Tonight we are having sleet. 

The good news from the weekend is that Calvin Women's Soccer team are MIAA champions!!!  They beat Alma 4-0 for the championship.  Regionals start Friday on their home field.  It is always good to have home field advantage.  I just hope the weather is better than last weekend.  They won the championship in COLD rain.  Go KNIGHTS!!!

I did see something kind of cute yesterday.  Geese usually fly in a V.  Well, they walk in a line.  There were about 30 of them walking across the field at work all in a nice line.  I sure wished I would have had my camera.  Got to get one to carry in my car or pocket.
