We went to NC to spend time with family for Thanksgiving. I’m writing this on Sunday night after traveling all day to get home. Although Dr. M drove the whole way, I’m not sure how coherent this post will be. That should make it fun!
P.S. If you haven’t entered the drawing for a free Flexi Clip & you want to, check out this post to see how! I’m doing the drawing & announcing the winner Tuesday evening.

Nuthatch & chickadee sightings – made Dr. M’s day!
Pinky is still glorious… I need to get a picture with one of us standing beside her so you can see how big she is!
My daily walk. As I said on Facebook, what profiteth a neighborhood if it hath two disturbing turkeys and also a nativity?

My daily walk – it was a BIT breezy out!
After the events of the day I found my evening prayers to be even more meaningful…

My daily walk. You know, I’m not sure the penguin cap is really necessary when it’s nearly 40 degrees outside.

We drove to Hickory this day. I drove the whole way! Usually I get drowsy on these drives, but I was alert & only marginally terrifying to Dr. M. Even Rusty the Reindeer seemed to be ok. Score!
I knew I had arrived at Daddy & Amy’s house when I found the blubarb pie. Daddy had the idea to use half rhubarb & half blueberries & it was fabulous!
My daily walk – the Wallace B&B treadmill…
Thursday, November 27th – Happy Thanksgiving!
I was responsible for decorating for the family gathering. Which, um, isn’t a particular skill set of mine. Thank goodness I had a lot of help!! Dr. M & my cousin’s granddaughter helped quite a bit, along with another cousin & his stepson. Whew!
Here’s the crew! We were missing a few folks this year…
Random shots. I’m not sure why I’m wearing the paper pilgrim hat.
My rather yellow meal. I’m not a big turkey eater. I decided to just get stuff I love. Oh, & I didn’t eat all that food on the dessert plate – just most of it :)
My daily walk – up & down my dad’s driveway. Made me appreciate the sidewalks in our neighborhood!

Dr. M took some great pictures in his old haunts – this is a refurbished cotton mill that’s now used for weddings & other events.
The South Mountains.
My daily walk. I once again didn’t listen to my father when he expressed concern about my choice of walking trails, but once I had in my head that I wanted to walk Bakers Mountain there was no backing down. Only a little over 2 miles, but it was just a bit strenuous. My calves are still sore!
Daddy & Amy headed out to a viewing. I decided I needed to take their picture.
