Okay, Thanksgiving is over, and I'm not feeling like writing a blog, but I have to write blogs for Saturday and Sunday. Why don't I feel like writing a blog; it's because I'm stuffed like the famous Christmas goose. After two big dinners, one the night before Thanksgiving and one the day of Thanksgiving I may not eat for the rest of the week.
On Wednesday night, we took our youngest son and daughter-in-law out for a buffet dinner lots of delectable goodies. Then on Thanksgiving day, we met our oldest son (he had to work on Friday and the rest of his family was in
for dinner along with my brother and a good friend to stuff
ourselves some more. We had a good time,
but I'm not hungry for any more food for a long time. Wisconsin
All of our family have so many things to be thankful for. Everyone has a job, a home, food, decent health and plenty of all the things we need to be comfortable in life. We are truly blessed, and I'm truly thankful for our blessings.
Is anyone in the mood for Christmas shopping? Did anyone go shopping on black Friday? Oh, you poor souls that did black Friday you have my sympathy. I did black Friday once years ago and swore I would never do it again.
Even if I'm not in the mood for shopping, I'm in the mood for baking. This is something I like to do for the neighbors, friends and family. I used to take in huge roasters of goodies to the people I worked with, but I'm retired now.
We like to adopt a family during the holidays, and it's much more fun to shop for them than our family. Although, we have a couple of grandchildren who are married with children that need a little more help this year. They are still fortunate because we can help, and so can their parents.
Well, I've rambled enough, so I'm going to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, since I won't be back until December 29th.
