Happy Thanksgiving!

Thursday, November 26, 2020

The last two days have been hectic... but today was so worth it. My center roll did not cook all the way, so I had to really have a talk with myself to not be disappointed in myself with that. I'll know for next time to not add a center roll. The 'bonus' rolls I made to see how they tasted were wonderful. I didn't take into account how being in a big pile would do with the cook time. Christmas rolls will be better! Yes, I am already planning Christmas emoticon . I have to keep my mind preoccupied.

2020 and everything is getting to me. I've managed to do pretty well, all things considered. But, I feel like I'm not doing so great right now. I'm trying though, and staying busy and holiday cheer really helps. I love the cold weather, I do not like how dark it gets so early. But, I won't be hampered by that like I used to be because of my eyesight. As soon as my eye finishes healing, I'll be able to drive at night again - so excited! But that will be three more weeks. In the meanwhile, crafts, baking, and planning!

emoticon But, Thanksgiving was a blast. I was able to just chill. I did forget a few things at Mom and Dad's, but they were not important things and we can pick them up at Christmas. Dad sent 12 inch cardboard heads of everybody to Grandma since we could not go to her house for Thanksgiving (ordered through a company that does that) and she got the biggest giggle out of them! She arranged them around her table and had a blast too! Sure do miss her!

emoticon Called my neighbor, B, and found out he is going in a nursing home sometime in the next two weeks. I'm so sad! But he said it is all about attitude and what you make of it. He is going to friend me on FB and keep up with me on there. The one he is going to doesn't allow visits... or mail. I'm not liking the sound of that. That is taking it a bit too far. I have not seen him since the kids started school because of the virus. He is a wonderful person, an awesome friend, and they better treat him well! Love him to bits!

I got my fabric glue for the Scandinavian folded stars, I can't wait! I'm going to try to do one tonight for B, and see if he will take one with him to remind him of me. So that when he sees it he will be reminded that he is loved. Not because I'm family, not for any reason other that that he is such a wonderful person. I'll make it of a simple fabric, that can be up any time, if I can find something. Maybe blue and white? I'll have to see what I have. I found another fun one, but you have to have the stuff that fuses two fabrics together and I don't have much of that. I'll have to see. The star is so much simpler to make. No fusing needed.

I get to start simple exercises next week, no bouncy cardio, nothing over 20 pounds, but working out, yay! I'm so happy! I totally forgot to do my stretches this week, I've been so busy! Not good. But now the rush is over, and I'm going to make it a priority! The Christmas projects come after taking care of me!

And today I did not eat too much and did not have dessert. My stomach said a big no to food today. I do not know why. I made good yummy foods, nothing bad for you, nothing drenched in grease or cheese and no heavy carbs. I had a few bites of Mom's mac and cheese to make her happy and that was the worst I ate! emoticon But my stomach was really like, nope, you have had enough, after just a few bites. I think I may know why. I have the beginnings of pain from a migraine, so it may have been the start of that. Plus my knee is in some pain, and who wants to eat much when they are in pain? I'll get halfway up the stairs and my knee hurts bad enough that I then have to take them one at a time. Needless to say stairs are kept to a minimal. Walking is fine, though, so I'll start walking as much as my knee can take, after I talk to ortho. I'll call Monday and make an appointment. This is so frustrating.

Well, starting to get tired. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving no matter how you spent it! Now to change the wreath on the door from Fall to Christmas and get rid of the pumpkins! LOL!

    Karri: Glad you had a good Thanksgiving w/your family. That lifts the spirits.

    Sorry to hear about your neighbor but I think it's wonderful to make a Scandanavian star for him to remember. Sweet. Prayers all goes well for him.

    HUGS my dear.
