Decoration Day

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”.

    Ahhhhh…… the magic of lights! I plugged the tree in on Thanksgiving, so it is officially jolly around here, too.

    That patrol is super-cool. I’ve never seen anything like that!

Eating Now and Later

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.

She even included Thanksgiving napkins!

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!

Luxurious Reclining

Happy Thanksgiving!

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!

Thoughtful Thawing

I make turkey dinner every year for Thanksgiving, then freeze a bunch of turkey dinners. Yum! I bought a turkey a week ago and put it in my freezer. It’s a 22 pounder! Woo hoo!

In the past, I’ve forgotten to thaw the turkey well in advance, so I would have to float it in cold water. This year I remembered! I moved it into the refrigerator yesterday! Good job, Brad!

I keep my birdseed in the refrigerator so it doesn’t get weevils.
