Ann, How do you reheat the squash? Sounds like you are well prepared.
The cranberry bogs are on the peninsula. The Ilwaco Heritage Museum is the base of the festival and has shuttle buses that take you to the cranberry bog demonstration farm. You can see all processes of harvesting cranberries from flooding the bogs, cutting the vines, gathering the floating berries and sending them up a ladder into trucks. There's a gift shop with cranberry themes on everything, usually live music and food. There are also some bogs in Oregon.
I just got back from Costco. Cash register shock once again even though I cut back on what I buy every time. I did buy their pumpkin pie - it's so good! DH had a hot dog and I had a nonfat yogurt sundae- then I realized it is nonfat but I don't know the carbs value. Rats. Probably not a good choice.
Good Morning. I'm suppose to get lab work today but haven't gotten up the ambition to go yet. Maybe after lunch time. Last night I must have eaten something that didn't agree with me and had the runs. Then once again this morning. And what's with these muscle spasms I get in my back once in a while. Twice this morning. Thank goodness they only last a minute.
Jan, I didn't know they had cranberry bogs in the N W. But then I didn't know Calif. had rice fields either until a few years ago and Calif. is a big grower of rice. What a mess that 18 wheeler must have been on the bridge if it is the bridge I'm thinking of. I'm surprised they didn't have it closed to high profile traffic.
I remember one year that DS's girl friend at the time, gave me a turkey platter for Christmas. That platter was huge. Bigger than anything we would ever use. Our kitchen table is perfect for 4 people so I just serve our dinner buffet style. I do have leaves for it but then it would take up too much room.
It's a nice quiet day with just the usual winds. Leaves all over the place from the storm. I enjoy seeing autumn leaves but not so thrilled with how they get dragged in the house no matter how much you scrape your shoes. Today we clean house and I'm making my Thanksgiving plan. I'm cleaning the oven this morning.
Today I started taking my second 1/2 pill of Metformin and I sure hope all goes well. I'd hate to not feel well during Thanksgiving- but it is what it is.
I've heard shingles are contageous- a friend had a very bad case on her face, scalp last year and even was in the hospital and she couldn't come to TOPS for quite some time. But last week at Bible study a woman told us she had one shingles and now I'm wondering why she didn't know it was contageous - or maybe there's a point where it's not? Patty I hope yours doesn't go into that pain mode. There seems to be lighter cases and then horrible ones like my friend experienced.
Sarah, I love the Thanksgiving decorations, too. Actually I decorate for fall- leaves and pumpkins and things. I was glad to see I have some pretty turkey napkins from last year. My sister gave me a wicker turkey container that held fresh flowers some years ago so I put silk autumny flowers in it. I love the autumn colors. Last year I went to a wonderful garage sale with great prices and got two autumny Williams Sonoma tablecloths.
Time to get going. DH is going to need a haircut this morning. Staying on food plan, drinking lots of water, no moving yet.
Patty I never knew shingles were catching. I've only known one other person to suffer with them. His wife said his were really painful. I hope you aren't having a lot of pain with them. Good for you on the walk!
Are you getting ready for Thanksgiving? Do you decorate? I love the plates and napkins etc with turkeys on them. Such a festive table they make.
