Hoooray! It’s Friday! The weekend is here! And even though I’ve been retired for 4 years now, I still find myself looking forward to the weekends.
For those of you keeping score at home, we didn’t get out to celebrate DH’s birthday at his favorite restaurant on The Hill yesterday. I forgot that he had a dental appointment yesterday. We can’t go today because we’ll have at least 1 grand here, maybe 2. Mama and Daddy are taking the 2 bigger Ts to see Wrecking Ralph today (they might take T#3 … it was undecided as of last night). So guess who gets to watch the littles!! We’re going to try to go tomorrow … wish us luck! ha!
We did get our Thanksgiving shopping done yesterday. DH is our shopper, so he stopped at the store on the way home from his dental appointment. I gave him a nice detailed list, even grouped it together by aisle. On the list was a 20 lb. turkey, but I gave him some insight on what to do if he couldn’t find a 20 lb. turkey. I explicitly told him not to buy one bigger than 21.5 lbs. (we’re going to roast our turkey in an electric roasting pan … and our pan will not hold a 22+ lb. turkey). So what does he do but bring home a 22.5 lb. turkey. Poor DH … but he was a good sport about it and went back to the store to swap the turkey for a 19.5 lb. one. “Tom” is now thawing in our spare refrigerator (out in the garage).
We’ve got some nice weather in the forecast … highs in the upper 50’s … with a high of 61 on Thanksgiving.
Today I’m thankful for:
- My patient hubby who is a good sport about having to postpone his birthday dinner … and about having to swap out the turkey
- Unseasonably nice weather for the week leading up to Thanksgiving
- Time with my Ts
- Time with needle and thread
- Movie night with my hubby (even if it’s a movie we’d seen before … neither one of us could remember how it ended, so it was like seeing a new movie)
