Where's the song ~~ "Don't let your daughters grow up to marry a Cowboy" ?

​​​​​​​Life is tough! Requires hard physical work, long, long days of pain, dirt, and broken fingernails.​
​Days of frigid cold & scorching heat; through the dust & mud; daybreak into the darkness of nite~~​
​the heart & body becomes toughened & weathered replicating leather!​
​A forever constant factor for a real Cowboy's Wife is tons of sweat, oceans of tears and a constant 'drought' in the wallet!​
​​​​​​​​​IF​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ she wants to spend anytime at all with her Cowboy, she must do as he does, you become partners!​
​​​​​​Kick off your boots, grab a cup of coffee, sit back and envision yourself in my life!​
​... It really isn't that bad! There are many rewards to be had to make it a great lifestyle! ...​ ​​​​​​​

It Has Been a Whole Year...

...Since I had one of these...

NO! Not this....
You Turkey!

Yes, it has been a year since Thanksgiving,
but this in NOT what I've missed stuffing myself with!

..actually, my favorite part of Thanksgiving is cold turkey sandwiches..
just before bed! ...and again for breakfast!
So you all have a great Thanksgiving,
enjoy stuffing yourselves with all those wonderful goodies..

I'm already stuffed!
And delightfully so!
On a favorite of mine that I haven't had for a whole year!



...and I ate the WHOLE thing!!



Beats a Turkey feast anyday!
(and this is the truth...sort of, it's actually been 13 months!)

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you in the U.S.

For those who aren't? Have a wonderful Thursday!

Me? Oh... I'll cook the whole shebang as I find humor in watching
everyone make themselves miserably full...and sleepy~
while I nibble on the olives & veggies!
I never said I was normal!


Amanda said...

Dang!! Now I am very hungry and have been trying to diet. Yum I love turkey sandwiches with lots of mayo!! Pizza too!

Jamie said...

Have a great Thanksgiving...Veggies, Olives and all!

Sage said...

Pizza.. somehow always tastes nicer out of boxes..never known why until your post.

Happy thanksgiving to you guys - have a wonderful day

The Wife said...

Pizza...now that's something good to eat before bed or first thing in the morning! Yummo!

Wishing you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!

JennyLu said...

Ohh Yummy. PIZZZZA. LOL. We don't have good pizza here. Unless I make it. I will also will be cooking the entire shebang, and munching on a lot of it. Instead of my normal turkey roll roast, I have to make an entire turkey (kids, company) SIGH.

you missed the super surreal post, i put a little turkey day story in there just for you to loose your coffee sip over. I just so sweet. LOL.

Have a happy and SAFE (that means keep all your fingers intact while cooking) Thanksgiving

My favorite part of the meal is cranberry jelly...I can eat it by the can.
Pizza would be good too if it was covered in veggies.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving/Thursday too.

Janice Thomson said...

TWO pizza's? My god woman where did you stuff it all! LOL Yummy though isn't it. It's been well over a year since I had any either and now that you mention it....:)
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving my dear friend.

Theresa @ Take A Sentimental Journey said...

Hi Momma Barb! I am back from the wilds of Virginia, where I went to visit friends (a.k.a. non biological family members). The trip was Josh's birthday gift to me. It was lovely but I didn't have internet access.

I'll probably try and post something later in the day but I wanted to write you a quick note.


Linda said...

I do turkey sandwiches the best too! They have to have cranberries on them though. I haven't had take out pizza in ages we live to far out. I just make my own version of it:) Happy Thanksgiving!

Muddy Boot Dreams said...

We have a wonderful!!! pizza place around here. They love unusual toppings, like black figs, thai chicken, coconut sauce....honestly it is wonderful.

As for the turkey sandwiches, yum. With homemade cranberry sauce, mayo, salt and pepper, and STUFFING! I live for that day all year long.


Elliemae said...

Happy Thanksgiving girl! I've got a great recipe for veggie pizza if you need it! It's cold and made with cresent roll dough...cream cheese and some seasoning..man your post made me hungry. Happy Turkey!

DesertHen said...

I see you finally got that pizza...=D I KNOW you ENJOYED it too!! I'm picking up one this evening to take home so I won't have to cook...then I can concentrate on making pies for tomorrow. My mom took charge of the cooking this year and the only thing she will let me bring are the pies...so I'm making three tonight! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoy your day....=D

I bought 4 cans of black olives and a big jar of green ones. My family LOVES the olives... and all the traditional stuff too.

Hope your Thanksgiving is wonderful!

LL said...

dickiebo said...

You're just a Temptress. Aincha?

wordmama said...

So WOW, are you having the whole family over? I've got you figured out now - you just keep inviting people over to keep that house of yours full of life and love!

I hope you have a fabulous Thanksgiving. We, of course, had ours last month and it was delicious. I'm with you on the turkey sandwiches. Nice soft bread, mayo, salt and pepper and - my absolute favourite topping - a sprinkle of my mum's special rice stuffing! So yummy!

Renie Burghardt said...

Hi Barb,

Happy belated Birthday! Sorry I'm late. And a Happy Thanksgiving!! Pizza is always good!

If you waited all that time for that pizza, then you deserve to eat it all!

Hope you have a great thanksgiving! I'll be thinking of you and raising a glass of cheer!

JennyLu said...

Stopping by to wish you a happy turkey day

Tessa said...

Happy Days, Barb...and lots of them! With pizza in between the olives and the veggies every now and then.

Freak Magnet said...

It doesn't get much better than pizza... maybe just lasagna..? Anyway, I hope you had a great Thanksgiving! I bet it's chilly over there. Stay warm!

Christina said...
