I am so sick of eating. And I really didn't eat all that much this weekend but still.....so much food in the fridge, so many leftovers....so much is gonna end up in the garbage. We did a 12 lb turkey, stuffing, mashed taters, corn, cranberry sauce & gravy, PLUS a prime rib. And we had Dutch apple pie for dessert. Of course we are all about speed and ease, so everything comes out of boxes, cans and jars. The pie was from the grocery store bakery.
My stepkids came over at 2 to dine with us and we were all stuffed to the gills. They still had their mom's to go to later on for 2nd dinner! They are lucky they are so young and slim!!!
My bday was the same day and it was mellow. I felt the love on Facebook with all the greetings and messages. That was so nice. The next day, my mom took us to lunch, but not before she gave me this gift to usher in my 50th year. A cane with horn and rearview mirror.
Stuffed from lunch, I wasn't hungry again till well after 8 pm so I made myself a very small turkey sammich. Turned around to find myself pinned against the counter once again by my silly boopies. Sagan is so focused on the plate with my sammich in this pic.
"But...but...but....you haz turkey sammich and we haz NO turkey sammich." Poor, poor starving, unspoiled furkids. Don't worry....they both got a little bit of turkey after I took this picture!
Yesterday, I made this 'Christmas ball chandelier' that I saw on Pinterest. Came out pretty good. I think it needs some more balls and the next one I make will have more; I got tired of tying fishing line. This was, as always, just a prototype.
It's started to get super icy cold again. Makes for pretty pictures but taking the dogs out after dark really sucks, despite bundling up, esp. at 3 AM.
Couldn't resist taking another one of these last night when the sun went down. We only get to see it like this from late November to early January. Would like to get another snow pic of it but I really don't want any snow yet!!!
I've got all my Christmas cards done and ready to go, and most of my shopping is done, not that I had that much to do anyway. I don't do Black Friday and I find people's shopping conduct sickening. I called this 'The Season of Brotherly Shove.' Online, small business and craft fair shopping is the only way to go.
It's time to take down the Thanksgiving decorations and put up the Christmas ones! I will be working on that today and that usually takes quite a few hours. I also have one more craft show this coming Saturday at the Sandwich Legion.
How was everyone's Thanksgiving weekends? Did you do the Black Friday insanity? Sick of turkey yet?
