Good Morning. We had a pleasant, and exhausting day yesterday. I finished cleaning the house in the morning and then commenced cooking with dh. We had turkey cooked on the Weber BBQ, BBQ salmon, ham, mashed potatoes with leeks, gravy, dressing, scalloped corn (family tradition), green bean casserole, and rolls. I finally got to sit down after dinner and worked on a jigsaw puzzle, another family tradition. Then pie (apple, cherry, or pumpkin). Dh and youngest grandson made the pumpkin filling and accidentally dropped in a whole nutmeg. That made for a spicy surprise! I made the mistake of having a small glass of red wine after dinner, and it didn't play nice with one of my medications. I got super sleepy and had trouble concentrating on our card game that we always play. Grandkids spent another night, 'cuz their mom had to go to work early, and I offered to let them stay and sleep late. I introduced them to the pleasure of pie for breakfast! We don't usually shop Black Friday, either, although we may go to the Arts Fair. Weather is clear and crisp, and thankfully the cold wind that blew for 2 days has calmed down.
I am thankful for living in a beautiful area, having my family living close, and a snug roof over our head. And I am thankful for the lovely people on this forum who share snippets of their life and allow us to celebrate the highs and commiserate on the woes.
