The shopping what little there was is done. Most of the people on our list are difficult to buy for and it is just simpler to write checks or get gift certificates. I am so over shopping for Christmas Gifts. When I get a little older everyone will just get knit or crochet scarves…isn’t that a special thought!
I still need to bake some Pumpkin Bread…maybe today. I should do a double batch and deliver some to various neighbors. I used to be better about all this “stuff” surrounding Christmas.
All the decorations are up…at least all that are going to see the light of day.
Yesterday we spent the day away at a checkup with Far Guy’s Neurologist. All is well and he agreed with me that Far Guy is
elderly getting a tad older. It rained most of the day…Fargo ND has no snow. Lakes in Minnesota are turning dark from the rain…not a good thing when it is warm enough to rain. Our patio is like a skating rink. Chance doesn’t like outside when there are icy puddles to walk through.
Twenty six wild turkeys a few days ago when the sun was shining.
Our menu is simpler this year for our dinner. Ham, baked potatoes, lettuce salad, homemade mac and cheese for the boys…simple foods…Jen is making homemade crescent rolls…her boys will eat lots of those!
It is at this time of year that I wish I had an extra fridge. Oh well coolers have been used before! Two people only need extra fridge space a couple of times a year!
I almost fell in the yard Sunday night…one of those oh crap what will I break this time…with visions of hospitals and surgery dancing in my head…I made a great save by running through half the yard…funny how when you begin to fall that momentum is carried on for what seems like forever. I must have tripped over my big feet…funny I have had them forever you would think by now I would be used to them. Anyways my right arm and shoulder and left ankle are sore….that ankle hasn’t seen that kind of action for years…and my arm and shoulder must have been doing the windmill ninety mph. Uffda.
