Dear friends, I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving today. During this time may we remember those who make our lives better. Be thankful for what we have and don’t sweat the rest. It’s important to recognize that this holiday is tough for some and does have its own issues but through reconciliation and love it can be a new way forward of gratitude and peace. However, you celebrate may you be safe and have fun. Thanks to those who serve during this day.
A little inside information in advance of tomorrow’s American Thanksgiving holiday. Interesting stuff if you ask me.
Time is slow when you want it to be fast. It’s fast when you want it slow. Time doesn’t go by our rules only it’s own. We are all waiting for something that takes its own time. A watch, a clock, a sundial are the keepers of time and we have to abide by. On this day I want time to go by swiftly but tomorrow perhaps not. It is all about time. Time does its own thing and there’s little we can do about it.
Pre-pre Thanksgiving dinner. A great, hearty meal for a cold night.
This soup is flavorful, comforting, and nourishing! Thanks to my cousin-in-law-in-law Cat for sharing it with me.
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1/2 to 1lb ground sausage
- 1 head cabbage, chopped
- 1 onion, diced

- 2 tsp dried oregano
- 2 tsp dried thyme
- 1 tsp cumin
- salt and black pepper to taste
- dash of red pepper flakes
- few dashes of Worcestershire sauce (optional)
If desired, you can add other vegetables, such as:
- 8 Yukon gold potatoes, halved or quartered
- 1 cup sliced carrots (I like the crinkle-cut “chips”)
- 1 pkg sliced mushrooms
Brown beef and sausage in large pot or dutch oven; do not drain. Add onion & garlic and continue heating until softened. Stir in broth and tomatoes, then seasonings, then cabbage and any other vegetables; continue heating on high until cabbage…

Love your neighbor as yourself. No if, and or buts. Spread love, not hate always.
This morning I’m drinking Oat Nog Latte from Chattanooga coffee spot, Sunnyside Cup. It’s tasty and warm on a Tuesday. Enjoy your Tuesday brews.
Tonight we were at a fast food restaurant waiting for our food and I started complaining about the wait and also the prices. Yep, I was a cranky jackass and I hate feeling like that. Sure getting older is inevitable but the attitude that goes with it is optional. I like to think of myself as a person who has an open mind, but these days I am just getting onery or something like that. Maybe it’s a good thing to share stuff and let myself feel.
It’s Thanksgiving week here in America. I am going to choose to be thankful for what I have and don’t worry about the rest. Have a great week ahead my friends.
