and the mad rush is on from now until after Christmas. I am not doing much Christmas shopping this year. I am giving one nice gift to each person and that is it. Plus I have two birthdays to buy for, Dec 23rd and Dec 24th. I love Christmas time but this year I just don’t have the energy to go all out.
Thanksgiving day was lovely. I was invited to go with my daughter and son in law to my SIL’s brother’s wife’s brother for Thanksgiving at 12 noon. Sounds complicated but it really wasn’t. The host and hostess are lovely people. There was a huge crowd of people there; I counted 47 right before time to eat and several came in afterwards. Their home is beautiful with a full finished basement that my old house would almost have fit into. Awesome and the couple built it themselves. The food was really something. Ham. turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, dressing, at least a dozen casseroles, salads and relish trays and a whole counter full of hors d'oeuvres . The desserts were homemade blackberry pie, pumpkin pie, pecan pie, brownies, etc. I stuffed myself. The hostess even sent me home a small container of turkey and so I had the traditional turkey sandwich for my supper.
I will confess that today I am worn out. I have laundry to do but my neighbors two doors down beat me to the laundry room. So I guess I will have to wait on that.
I made an appointment for Monday morning to get the other repair work done on my car. I decided I don’t need a new car right now with winter coming on. We have a snow rain mixture predicted for Monday night.
I hope you all have a good weekend. Stay safe and be happy!!
