Remember way back when, when I said I had a new computer and had it all figures out? Well, not so much. I had so many problems this past week downloading, or was it uploading, photos to my blog site. There were some loud comments, some not-so-nice comments and maybe even a few times where I was holding back tears (don’t tell anyone about that part).
I’m sure there is some small thing I need to click, but I watched videos, read google directions and clicked and unclicked a lot of things. The main thing for you to know is that “No Photos, No Blog”. I mean really do you just want to READ? Of course not.en
So it’s really not a fixed thing but we shall persevere. Let’s go back to when you were born. Ok, not that far back – but at least to last week. Maybe Thanksgiving.
First, I did a traditional Thanksgiving 5K. You didn’t know that was a tradition? Well almost all runners try to do that. So here I am getting ready. Notice the short sleeve shirt! It was in the high 50s. The expression is because Patient Husband said he wanted a picture of the turkey.
It was very confusing in my house because Patient Husband was really wanting to get started with Christmas wrapping, so at noon this is what my Thanksgiving table looked like:
While the turkey was roasting , I tried a new stuffing recipe. Now, I know you truly can’t have a great stuffing (like my sister Marcia’s) without bread. But I wanted to try so we could be as non-carb as possible. So this stuffing contained butternut squash, sausage, celery, cranberries, an apple and assorted seasoning. It was really, really good!
Because of the condition of my table, we had our dinner at the ‘bar’ in the kitchen. We even splurged with some bubbly.
rapping. wrapping begin.
Christmas is the time I get to make fun of the colossal amount of tape that PH uses to wrap gifts. First he tapes the paper to the package and then just keeps on taping.
Just the girls checking out the outdoors.
Over the weekend, we brought down all the decorations. I really need to condense.
Then the freshly cut tree…….
At lease someone likes the house filled with boxes….
At least we were able to start the day with yummy blueberry pancakes.
Our local fire department has the tree lit up for us.
And now the “Finnegan Update”. His arms are as strong as those legs!!
And now let’s take all our thankfulness that we thought about over this holiday straight into December this week.
One step at a time,
