    Same to you Linda! I cooked the turkey breast today to free up the rental kitchen for the fish fry tomorrow. Making do with the pots and pans that are here - definitely different than cooking at home.

    Picked up a key lime pie from the bakery down the street for dessert, Cuban rolls, and guava cake. Son in law will make green beans, mashed potatoes and fry the fish they caught yesterday.

    Not a traditional thanksgiving dinner, but the girls are used to it since they grew up traveling on thanksgiving!

    Just stopping off to say I hope all is well with each and everyone of you. I know most are in a turkey comma right now. God bless you and your family. I hope for peace and health for you all. I had a full day but I do want to say I am thankful for those I consider my gurus. @attimus and @Aart... dont know why if wouldnt highlight. Thankyou for your friendships to Outpost and Fridayet. and everyone else. Day 12 for the eggs. Hoping I can post chicky pictures in 9 days.

    Talked to my BIL and he lives out on a farm in Roy. He asked if I hatched my birds if he could process and provide food for our two families.. Im thinking about it. Processing is something I want to learn. My hubby is not on the same page... will chat with him more. I think that this would be a good arrangement. We shall see. and God bless to each and every one of you on Thanksgiving day!!!

    Yes, I have been raising and lowering based on aircell size.. I just raised it a bit but I understand that during lockdown it has to be 75% Is that correct? I might have to double check my data.

    It has been a long evening and its okay if I talk to myself... sometimes life isnt what it should be... you would think I would have learned that lang ago, but then life has a way of making it better than ever. I can be mad at a certain person.. or keep going.. I choose going. I have unfortunetly walked away from really important people in my life to beable to sustain the health I need... this is lesser than that. So tonight I say I really truely hope with all my heart each and everyone of you is blessed. I have kids and a husband that keeps me going.. and I know each and everyone of you have something too. Lots of love.
