Yesterday was the day after Thanksgiving, so I put up Christmas decorations. I have a parol (a Filipino Christmas decoration) from when I was in Baltimore. I have a lot of Filipino neighbors, so I think that by displaying this in my window, I will be under their protection.
I also have some tiny LED lights from last year. They are so sparkly. I love them. I put them next to my TV so I could see them all the time. This set has several settings, but I have them on “twinkle”.
I had a good Thanksgiving meal yesterday. I got a 22 pound turkey. I like LOTS of turkey so I can have leftovers. I tried something new I saw… instead of putting the butter on the surface of the skin, I stuffed it under the skin. Honestly, I didn’t notice a difference.
My friend Judy from church wanted to have a bunch of people over for dinner, but couldn’t because of covid, so instead, she delivered Thanksgiving food. I told her I was already making turkey, stuffing, and potatoes, so she brought everything else.
It was a complete Thanksgiving meal, and it was delicious!
I was so excited about the leftovers. I made fourteen plates of food, and two bowls with potatoes, turkey, and gravy. Yum! I’ll be eating this delicious food until Christmas!
Yesterday was a couch day. My couch folds flat and becomes a bed. I leave it folded down all the time. It maybe looks weird that I have a bed in my living room, but it is so much more comfortable to recline than to sit up.
The exterminator came this morning and I didn’t even close it. I just straightened it up and pretended like it was normal. 🙂
I didn’t post yet today, and now it’s already after 4pm, which means it’s already after 8pm in Nebraska. Sorry, Nebraska readers.
Today has been a day of relaxation. We have Tuesday through Friday off for Thanksgiving. Yay!
This morning, I made tea and looked out the window. It was just like a coffee commercial, except I was drinking tea.
It was perfect timing for a day off, because today was the regularly scheduled visit of the exterminator that the condo association arranges. That was also an excuse for me to straighten things up a bit. Nice!
