I hope that everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving. Mine certainly was. We had our dinner at DD's ... her family, DSIL's parents and us; my dad had planned to join us ... unfortunately, T#4 is sick ... DD thought that she had rotavirus Wednesday night, so we suggested that my dad (87 and pretty frail) might want to pass. By the time we realized that it probably wasn't rotavirus, it was too late (and the weather forecast was for icy conditions, and I definitely didn't want him out on that!). :-(
I got up at 5:00 to get up to DD's by 6:30 to have Tom in the oven by 7:00. We got in a little ping-pong while he was roasting.
As we were cleaning up after dinner, DD noticed that it was snowing outside ... real snow flakes! Our first snow of the winter - on Thanksgiving! There was a tiny bit of accumulation ... on the mulch around the trees, on the sand in the sandbox, on the windshields of the cars. It was lovely!
We played some Uno
Speaking of Black Friday, DH was a sweetheart and ran to Sears to pick up a floor jack for my dad ... it was on sale 50% off on the Black Friday flyer. I'll definitely have to reward him with his favorite meal for dinner tonight ... Ima Garten's chicken piccata. I told you ... he's a keeper!
He also brought back a couple of bagels from the Bread Co. (yummy!), and the rest of our day will be spent taking it easy. The house is a bit of a mess from the late night Wednesday, preparing some Crispix Crunch n Munch and chopping the bread for the stuffing, so I need to do some tidying up, catching up on laundry. I also need to wrap a few gifts (gifts for T#2 & T#3, our great-nephew and our angel tree kids). And I plan to do some quilting. I think that's enough work for one day, don't you? ;-)
We usually put our tree up on the day after Thanksgiving ... we get a real tree, and we would rather get it up early, since they're already sitting out on the tree lots. But I think we might wait until tomorrow or Sunday ... I need a bit of a rest before I take on that tree.
