Yodeling Thanksgiving

I spent Thanksgiving with my friends Arlene, the lady who makes those lovely wooden treasure chests and her sister, Marcia. We shared an almost vegetarian meal, because it did involve deviled eggs. It goes without saying that my boy, Gizzy, was in attendance and nibbled on the butternut squash with emphasis on the (real) butter.

There was more than enough for us three, plus take homes.

After dinner, we moved into the living room for some R&R  Notice the big Treasure Chest on Arlene's coffee table? She built that one from wood coming from an old 100 year old house, making it extra precious. 

(Marcia reading on the couch and Gizzy on the floor)

Meanwhile, Arlene graced us with a little music on her Autoharp. She played a German/Austrian song called  "the Cuckoo" that involved yodeling - which she did! I was impressed! I doubt very many folks got yodeled to this Thanksgiving. 

Both, Arlene and her sister, are very talented in arts and crafts and musical instruments. They play several instruments each. Marcia is a piano teacher. I shamelessly ask for songs whenever I can.

I hope you all had a peaceful and tasty Thanksgiving today.

That sounds like a very pleasant and rewarding Thanksgiving day for all of you! Your squash looks wonderful and delicious to boot.

It went pretty smooth here except for poor Harley cat. She's about 18. My MIL's dog (busy border collie) chased Harley up a tree. Then she could not get down. Poor kitty was up there for about 15 minutes before I decided I had to extract her. I guess I will have to blog it... :) There was some yelling involved between me and husband. Kind of comical now.

Bye for now!
Happy Thanksgiving!

Looks like you had a very nice Thanksgiving. :)

My goodness Doris, what a wonderful time you had this Thanksgiving! I know you're thankful to have such wonderful friends. I'm not a vegetarian which is really a good thing if you're a diabetic. No carbs or sugars to speak of in meats or eggs. teehee My husband, myself and one of our sons went out to eat for Thanksgiving and it was really good but no leftovers. Thank goodness. I have much to be thankful for this year and one thing is friends like you that I've met in blogland or on facebook.

I'm so happy to hear you were with friends Dear Doris and Giz!

The meal looks scrumptious and the entertainment right close to my heart, I swear! I love the autoharp and used to play it in school every chance I got...matter of fact I've been researching them online to see how many dinero they are cuz I'd love to have one! I bet it was lovely to listen to, along with the yodeling!
You know I adore you and Gizz...
Many blessings and lots of love Doris!
