Happy Thanksgiving

6:00 AM Elizabeth Seckman 19 Comments

Did you know? Thanksgiving was established in 1863 by President Lincoln in the midst of the Civil War to remind the nation of their common roots. President Franklin Rooselvelt moved it to the third Thursday of November to stimulate the economy during the depression. 

Seems Thanksgiving has a history of getting us through the hard times.


I'm almost ready for Thanksgiving. The turkey is thawing and I have the rest of the groceries ordered and ready for pick up tomorrow. My plan is to cook most of it tomorrow, but you guys know me. I'll probably be cooking it Thursday, a few hours before dinner. 



Congratulations to fellow blogger and romance writer, Sandra Cox. She has a new book out and it's a good read. I give it a thumb's up!

Review of TumbleStar

Coop was swoon-worthy. A tough, suffer-no-fools sort of cowboy with a heart of gold and a generous nature. Coop has a ranch and he slowly fills it with people who have nowhere else to go, like his orphaned neice and her caretaker, Randa. Randa has no family, no home, and no money. She escorts the child to her uncle's ranch- a man she had a crush on as a girl- and ends up staying. There is plenty of subplot and action going on in this story that will keep you guessing all the way to the happily ever after.

buy it on Amazon.

    1. You're ahead of me. I don't have any stuffing made, but then I use the kind in the box.

    1. I have family coming in, so I doubt there is any quiet, but I am looking forward to the fun of chaos.

    1. Dinner was at 6:30, but if you ever show up on my doorstep, dinner will be whenever you want it.

  4. Happy Thanksgiving. Well I guess moving it made Black Friday come about, so the economy is sure helped, maybe not one's sanity.

    1. Black Friday was very quiet in my area. I think Black Friday is losing to cyber Monday

  5. I knew about Roosevelt but not Lincoln, so you taught me something. I hope you had a glorious Thanksgiving.

  6. Thank you so much for the lovely shout out. I so appreciate ya.
    I had no idea that Lincoln was responsible for Thanksgiving. For some reason I thought the pilgrims came up with that on their own. ROTFL.

    1. Any time, Sandra. I'm happy to help!

      The pilgrims probably started it and the government made it a federal thing.
