It's close to 7PM and I am not, I repeat, I am not prepping food for Turkey Day tomorrow. That's because my family won't be down until this weekend.
Tomorrow will be spent cleaning house and just hanging around the house.
In a few minutes, after Eddie takes his shower, together we will watch a couple of our shows and just laze around. Fried bologna sandwiches are on the menu for supper.
I hope to sleep a little later in the morning before getting started cleaning.
My Thanksgiving Dinner this weekend will consist of: Turkey, Dressing, Giblet Gravy, Ham, Green Bean Casserole, Mac-N-Cheese, Deviled Eggs, Potatoes and Gravy, Sweet Potato Casserole, Stuffed Celery, Tea, Rolls, Pecan Pie, and Sugar Free Italian Cream Cake.
Hope each and everyone of you have a very Happy Thanksgiving with family and friends.
I busted my chops last night making chicken for the Thanksgiving luncheon. To tell the truth by the time we ate it today, the breast tenderloins were a little dry, so we all had to drown them in gravy or bury them in dressing to make palatable.
I bought dressing, 4 Poppy Seed Chicken casseroles, a squash casserole, potatoes Au gratin, and a German chocolate cake from Sunday Dinner. I also bought a spiral sliced ham from Publix. We had a great time with fellowship and the feast was well eaten, but I was disappointed in my food purchases from Sunday Dinner, except for the Poppy Seed Chicken casseroles, which turned out to be very good.
I am full from all the other good eats my co-workers made. Now my hubby wants me to cook supper and I am really not interested. I would just like to go get in the bed and sleep.
I will have to break down and make some homemade dressing and macaroni-n-cheese the way my Momma taught me how to make, so I can get over this craving for Thanksgiving food. I will make some stuffed celery as well.
I didn't blog for a day, which became a week, which became a month, which became a year and then two years. I would not have believed it had been that long, except I saw the date of my last blog on here. Instead of blogging I have been living and going through the day to day of working, etc., which makes time fly, truly. I hope to get back into the routine of blogging. I like reading my older posts and remembering what went on in my life back then. Journaling is good for the soul, even if it's just fluff. Glad to be back in the swing of things.
Eddie reloads shotgun shells, so over the years he has saved many a shot bag, hence we had a lot lying about. He got the wonderful/brilliant/insane notion that we should make a quilt, but since my sewing abilities are "MONDO" inadequate, we had a neighbor lady do it for us instead. And look what a fine job she did...
My new charcoal grill requires a guard...a guard snake...that is.
What is it about my house that attracts snakes. If you have been following my blog for a while, you will know that this is not the first blog I have written about snakes. At least this one is a black snake, which is supposed to be a "good" snake, if there is such a thing. Black snakes and king snakes are supposed to eat insects and other snakes. I would like to believe that. I wanted Eddie to go out and beat the snake dead, but he wouldn't and I just couldn't (shudder!).
Here is just another few pictures of my guard snake.
to see how many comments I got about the baby chicks and almost fell off my chair from laughing.
I can't believe you guys didn't comment about this. The last blogs photos show the baby chicks and in the background is a big cup of starter grower, but look at what container Eddie used to put the feed in...A KFC CUP, Oh my goodness, that is tooooo funny. Poor little chicks I'm sure they are way afraid of us now thinking we might eat them for supper when they get big.
We had 12 chicken eggs in an incubator and one hatched early this morning. Here are a couple of photos of our newly hatched baby chick. The other 11 have not pipped yet. We are expecting their arrival shortly.
My great niece, Zoie, had a Tinker Bell Birthday Party over the weekend and if anyone looks like a beautiful little sprite it is this child. Sometimes she looks at me out of those beautiful sweet eyes and I see my mother. She is so girly and prissy, but oh so sweet. She was even excited about the hangers that her clothes presents came on. She makes me laugh and she makes me melt. Sweet, sweet child. Then there is her cousin, Connor, who is just as sweet and polite, but all little boy and I love him for it. His little smile makes my heart sing. Isn't it amazing how wonderful children can make you feel? Don't even get me started on Shawn, cause we all know how I can go on and on about that little booger.
I went looking for a present for Zoie (her mother had recommended Tinker Bell wall art as they are redecorating her room in "Tink"), I made a jaunt to Toys R Us because I had visited every other store in town and had just about given up when finally I found a poster which I easily framed. Viola! "Tinker Bell wall-art." See below!
I had to ask one of the clerks to help me find the posters and she said, Are you into "Tinkle Bell?" I said that my great niece was a fan of "Tinker Bell," and she answered back that her daughter loved "Tinkle Bell," too! I laughed all the way back to work.
So here are the latest photos of my sugar booger, you knew I was gonna post em!
