I’m excited to share with you a new series I’m starting called, “Talk Till Dawn”, I want this to be about my everyday life, the things I’m reading, eating, my everyday ups and down, along with photos that I’ve taken over the week.
My life and home is far from perfect even though I always share with you pretty home decor picture. Now from time to time I’ll give you a look at how things can get out of control like everyone else’s life.
Wow! All of a sudden I realized the month was over and I’d better get after writing about Novembers happenings. First off how was all you American folks Thanksgiving? It was uneventful here at the cabin, just hubby and I this year.
My oldest and his fiancé had dinner with her family; my youngest went north and had dinner with his family (if you’re new here that probably sounds funny, but we adopted one of my oldest sons friends after his mom passed away so he still has another family that lives further north).
I made a 20-pound turkey; hubby loves leftover turkey sandwiches so he’ll eat it up, one box of Stovetop stuffing, Bob Evans mashed potatoes, and roasted winter squash from the garden. Now that I read that I sound horrible.
I have to say the older I get the easier I like to make things on myself. I figured hubby was fine with me not making things from scratch so why go to all that work? Oh and I did make three pumpkin pie for dessert. I know that sounds like a lot but the boys came home and devoured them later so I’m glad I did.
I’m planning on dragging all the Christmas ornaments up from the basement this weekend and going through them. I’ll give the firefighter ones to my oldest and his fiancé for their tree and everything else I don’t want will either be sold or donated. I’ll post them on FB Marketplace for a few days and if I don’t get any response off they’ll go to our local Hospice retail store.
Once I decide to weed out I don’t want that stuff hanging around any longer. Anyone else like that? I just don’t want to store it or look at it ever again. My MIL took all the red and green ornaments off my hands last year. She had a craft project she was making so I told her not to buy any she could shop my stash first.
Every year I normally do a different color and theme but not anymore you’re going to be seeing the same stuff used in different ways instead. I already have a few ideas floating around in my head of ways to reuse things in all those Christmas totes.
I finally decided I had to come to terms with needing to wear glasses. I made an appointment, picked out a pair (which is a huge job by the way), picked them up and realized I couldn’t see any better with glasses. The prescription seems too strong in one eye and makes me a little queasy to wear them. I ended up taking them back and have another appointment to see what needs to be changed.
What a pain; I’m not big on doctors of any kind anyway and now this. I paid for them so I know I need to get them right but as I sit there I’m thinking of so many other things I could be doing other than trying to decided if I can see better with #1, or #2. I don’t seem to have much patience with things like that.
Granny I have been out running the streets. She likes to go out to eat once a week, normally to McDonald’s but this week we went to Olive Garden. I let her run the show and we do what she wants to do. Its good alone time with her she tells me all kinds of tales from when she was younger. It’s always a hoot when I’m with her, her mind is in tip top shape, she’s still a fashionista and turns heads still at her age.
Well I guess I’ve procrastinated long enough those Christmas decorations aren’t going to put themselves up so I better get on it. Until next time take care and thank you for spending the time talking till dawn with me today!
