Unexpected Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving turned out not to be what I had expected and planned. This morning as I was getting ready to pack my my car to head over the river and through the woods to spend the weekend with my family, I got a call from my Dad saying that everyone had come down with the stomach flu and that I better not make the trip. This is the first time in my life I have not spent Thanksgiving with my family.

So I unexpectedly have a free weekend. And 6 dozen or so homemade rolls and muffins (and no freezer space to store them)!

Actually, I was able to enjoy a meal with a friend's family this afternoon. And went out to a movie with a friend this evening. And I am looking forward to 3 unexpected days at home. I hope to get a jump on my Christmas decorating and even have some time to make some clever projects! And I'll likely eat some of those homemade rolls, too. I wish you all could help me out!

So it was not my traditional Thanksgiving. But it was a good Thanksgiving none the less. I am thankful for food and friends and God's many blessings.

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving, none-the-less. Perhaps you could find a needy family that would like your rolls. Or, you could always ship some to your family (hint, hint).

Sorry you guys missed out on the rolls! I missed seeing all of you! I did find room in the freezer by removing the ice trays, so maybe a few might make their way to Christmas.
