Angry Birds

Do you have an iphone?  On Thanksgiving I noticed my nephew also has an iphone and I asked him what his favorite ap is and he told me he has been playing a lot of "angry birds" and he thought I would like it, so I downloaded it.  Five days later and a lot of "angry birds" and I have a full blown case of carpal tunnel syndrom.  Every couple years I deal with it, always in my right hand, sometimes I get it from gardening and sometimes being on the computer.  This time it is my  iphone and I have it from my fingers all the way into my arm. 

While I'm complaining I may as well mention that I had a growth thingy removed from my eyelid this afternoon, no pain involved just an inconvenience so far.  I seem to be falling apart.

And now the good news we had a nice Thanksgiving, my sister's family and my mother joined us.  No Molly this year so no green bean casserole!   Here is my table at Thanksgiving.... did I mention the turkey turned out well as did everything else.... I'm hoping today was my last day of eating leftovers!

Getting Ready for Thanksgiving

I've been listening to Martha Stewart radio all week long and am learning about how to brine a turkey, and the correct wine to serve, even games to play following dinner.....somehow I think if I make it through dinner and clean up, I'll hardly be in the mood for games, but you know Martha, she covers all the bases! 

Tonight I purchased an actual roasting pan....I've been roasting a turkey for many years without the proper equipment.  I may be making turkey for the next 20 years and now I'm prepared.  If anyone in my family wants to take over the Thanksgiving dinner preparations they can gladly have my pan!  I also got a new crock pot tonight, broke my old one the last time I used it.  

I did some grocery shopping today and tomorrow I'll do some cleaning.  I hope to have time to organize so I can decide if I have all I need to pull off the meal. 

I'm also looking forward to Christmas decorating and if I don't do Black Friday shopping, I may just stay home and decorate!
