Morning Evening!! Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. Ben had been sick last week, so as he rested, he watched all these episodes of Chopped, the Thanksgiving editions. One day he asks me, so mom, do you brine your turkey? I’m like what? Then he proceeds to tell me how to do it. So I was a little nervous this year preparing my feast, I was afraid I wouldn’t measure up and possibly get chopped. But Ben was very happy with the meal, as were all my kids. Elijah thanked me for being his mom, and making such a great meal. Ben thanked my mom for having me, so that I could make them such a good meal 😀
So now it’s on to Christmas preparations. I put up the outside lights on Sunday, the forecast said sunny and 50, yeah, no, it was fa-reezing!! 39 feeling like 29. But we have had such warm weather that the bush I usually string lights on has leaves on it still. It is usually bare twigs, and I string the lights all through it, and hang large ornaments on it. So either I will wait to do that, or skip it all together.
It’s been two months since my mom’s injury, and she has moved back upstairs to her room. So we are cleaning and rearranging again. We have been discussing what needs to be done, and we want to get the carpets cleaned. She was going to call in the professionals, but after talking with a friend about a carpet scrubber, she decided to buy one, because I LOVE to clean carpets, and don’t mind doing it. So, I got to shop online, for a carpet scrubber, and it was on sale!! I couldn’t be happier if I were twins!!
Have a great week ahead!!
