Thankfulness - Day 6: This One's For the Perfect Thanksgiving Day!

By
Real Estate Agent with RLAH Real Estate AB95346

It started last night when two offers came in on a listing that was finally ripe for a buyer.  One was not too bad at all.  The other was amazingly perfect.  So I started this Thanksgiving holiday by making a great day for me, my seller, the buyers, and their agent.  

And as if things couldn't get better?  Well, they did.  My sister, Joan, hosted Thanksgiving dinner at her home in rural Virginia, so it was over the mountains and through the woods, and I was with two friends and didn't even have to drive!  The only cooking I did was to make the cranberry sauce!  And while Joan is a serious vegan, a perfectly cooked turkey and all of the trimmings found their way to her table.  Then, after eating way too much, I slipped into a tryptophan-induced snore after dinner while everyone else cleaned up!  

Now I'm back at home thinking that I'll get to make it up when it's my turn to host Christmas Dinner!

To all of my blog buddies on ActiveRain, I hope you had a wonderful day with lots of gratitude!

Happy Thanksgiving,  Pat - wake up!  It's almost Black Friday and with your current winning streak you may have a lottery winner on your hands or the real estate equivalent.

Morning Patricia.

This was the first year in 50 that we didn't have turkey. the chicken and dressing was the best my wife has ever made.  I just had some for breakfast.  Think I'll have some more for dinner this afternoon.

Finding more and more vegans in our family.  Glad your friend was still well versed in cooking a turkey.  I've had meats cooked by vegans and been thoroughly disappointed.

How perfect - seriously, how could improve on that day?  So happy for you. We had a wonderful day too, minus a perfect offer. Still grateful. D

You're so funny - you did have a great day, didn't you, Patricia! Like you, we all had a little nap too - I did clean up though but, that pillow was my motivation to get it done! LOL

That sounds like a delightful Thanksgiving, Pat. You've got to come out to the woods now and then for those naps.
