Two Holidays: Thanksgiving and the day after Thanksgiving

Since Christmas season is officially here, I thought I’d post my last Thanksgiving inspired photo.

 

Are you recovering?  A day of cooking and eating and another day of shopping?  That’s a lot of work!  I actually enjoyed cooking this year.  I already finished baking the apple crisp (My choice over pies any day), so my job was to make the brussel sprouts.  Now before you turn your nose up (isn’t that a weird expression?) you need to taste these.   This picture is  before I put cheese on top and baked……

I also made sure I had plenty of cooking wine.  Or maybe it was plenty of wine while cooking….

I wanted to dress in a Thanksgiving theme, but alas, I had nothing.  So instead I went with Dr. Seuss.

You see, its hard to match my outfit to this:

But after all the cooking and preparations, it was nice to have time to recognize all that we have to be thankful for.

 

I’m pretty sure Murray had too many of those sleep enzymes that are in turkey.  Or it could have been that cooking wine…

The calendar feature on my laptop usually will let me know at night if there is anything scheduled for the next day.   When I got on my laptop Thanksgiving night, it gave me this fascinating news:

Friday morning consisted of a lot of this:

For the first time in 4 years, we were able to attend Sheridan’s Christmas Stroll.  Either PH has had to work or the weather was miserable.    It was really a lot of fun.

The shops are all open and there is free hot chocolate and music.

Unfortunately, I forgot my crutch, so soon I was ready to get back in the car and head home.     Home meant leftovers, a couple of rented movies and the couch.  Not bad, huh?

I hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving day and if you are Black Friday shoppers – well I hope you got that deal you were hoping for!

Is it time for Christmas decorating?  Or do you wait – or maybe you’ve done it already?  I think we may start this weekend.

Have a good Saturday,

One step at a time,

Anne
