And Thanksgiving weekend draws to an end. We had a busy but very nice one.
Thursday I managed to get out of work early which was a good thing, even though we weren’t having a huge dinner there was still a lot to do. Susan and Gracie got to the house before dinner. Rudi was, of course thrilled to see Gracie and they provided endless amusement. Then funniest was when Gracie tried to get a toy out of the cats basket and managed to get it hooked on her collar. The panic as she ran across the room with toys being flug out of the basket all over was hysterical!
We decided to smoke our turkey this year so it went in the smoker when we went to bed and it was ready by morning. That meant we didn’t have to get up early! Always a plus in my books.
Thanksgiving was a lovely day. We watched movies, drank cocktails, laughed, ate too much and relaxed. It was almost perfect.
There were no real plans for the day after Thanksgiving so Susan and I went to have manicures and pedicures. I desperately needed a pedicure and I had been working hard to grow my nails out and they needed some attention. I was very pleasantly surprised when they only had to put tips on three nails. Everything else is all mine and ready for the holidays.
I haven’t had my nails done in several years now and I have forgotten how much I like it.
That evening we went to the movies to see “The Night Before”. OMG what a hysterical movie! We laughed so much and it was a great way to spend the day after Thanksgiving.
Saturday arrived with a good cold front just in time for Super Bowl Saturday at CCYFL. Edward and Susan took the truck the fields early to get a good spot along the fence. We got everyone cleaned up and Susan and Gracie dropped us off on the way out of town. It was very nice to have a warm spot out of the drizzle.
The JV 49ers came in as underdogs to this came it was a tight back and forth struggle that ended in a tie at the end of regulation. In overtime Edward caught a beautiful pass that resulted in a 49er victory! We are so proud of Edward and Emilio for their great play. What a blessing to get to play at least one year together.
Saturday afternoon we started setting up the house for Christmas and it resulted in being a very frustrating event. The lights on the tree didn’t work and half of the other lights we use didn’t work either. Arghhhhhh…and I managed to break one of the houses to my village. I was beyond antagonized but it was finally finished by late Sunday night and once I got to sit down, put on a Christmas movie and look at it I remembered why it was all worth it.
Christmas is here in all it’s glory and I can’t wait. I bought tickets to the ballet to see the Nutcracker for Vanessa, Lillly and Giuli and me in a few weeks and I can’t wait to take them! Most of the shopping is under control and once I get some sugar cookies made Edward will be happy.
I hope everyone had a great holiday!
