TALK LIKE A PILGRIM FOR THANKSGIVING
1. Instead of Hi, how are you? say Good morrow, How now? How do you fare? or What cheer?
2. Instead of Excuse me say Pray pardon me or Prithee pardon me
3. Instead of Congratulations! say Huzzah!
4. Instead of Goodbye say God bye to you, Fare thee well, or Pray remember me
5. Instead of fireplace say hearth
6. Instead of cat say mouser
7. Instead of stew or porridge say pottage
8. Instead of pillowcase say pillowbere
9. Instead of pants say breeches and instead of skirt say petticoat
10. Instead of backward say arsy varsy
When you're sitting around the table, ask the different generations for things they "used to say" -- it's guaranteed to bring smiles. Do you know what these mean? Okey pokey, spiffy, hunkey dorey, the cat's pajamas, spooning, jinx, sparking, the apple of my eye, nutty as a fruitcake and bats in her belfry
Have you ever noticed that when things go wrong we are sometimes quick to ask, "Why God?" but when things are mostly o.k. in our lives, we sometimes forget to thank God for taking care of us.
Keep the spirit of Thanksgiving in your heart all year long and remember to thank God for all the little things in your life that you may sometimes take for granted
Today I’m thankful for the color brown. That seems to be what is in the horizon right now. Most of the really vibrant color is gone from the trees and what remains is thousands of different shades of brown . I’m also thankful I’m not colorblind.
From an article I found on the color BROWN
Brown is a warm neutral color that can stimulate the appetite. It is found extensively in nature in both living and non-living materials
Brown represents wholesomeness and earthiness. While it might be considered a little on the dull side, it also represents steadfastness, simplicity, friendliness, dependability, and health.
The color brown and its lighter cousins in tan, taupe, beige, or cream make excellent backgrounds helping accompanying colors appear richer, brighter. Use brown to convey a feeling of warmth, honesty, and wholesomeness. Although found in nature year-round, brown is often considered a fall and winter color
These words are synonymous with brown or represent various shades of the color brown
Sienna, bay, sand, wood, dapple, auburn, chestnut, nut-brown, cinnamon, russet, tawny, chocolate, tan, brunette, fawn, liver-colored, mahogany, oak, bronze, terra-cotta, toast, umber, cocoa, coffee, copper, ecru, ginger, hazel, khaki, ochre, puce, snuff-colored
Believe me when I say they are all out there on our trees right now.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
He who thanks but with the lips
Thanks but in part;
The full, the true Thanksgiving
Comes from the heart.
You all are the ‘apple of my eye’
‘On Ya’ - ma
You cannot be grateful and bitter.
You cannot be grateful and unhappy.
You cannot be grateful and without hope.
You cannot be grateful and unloving.
So just be grateful.
