Thanksgiving has come and gone. I like the holiday, but it's been hit and miss over the last couple of years. For a couple of years I was going to Thomasboro Peace Lutheran Church for Thanksgiving dinner with the pastor there and with my family members in the area (my parents, and my brother and his wife). Last year I spent Thanksgiving alone with a turkey dinner for one. This year I went to my parents' house for dinner. They had ordered a dinner from County Market, and it was very good. Turkey, mashed potatoes with gravy, stuffing, cranberry orange relish, green bean casserole, deviled eggs, and pumpkin pie. I brought with me what is becoming my signature dish, a strawberry jello salad. I'll put the recipe up on a future blog post.
We had dinner together, with a trip for seconds, and then watched a Shirley Temple movie on Turner Movie Classics. Afterwords, my mother went to play solitaire on her Nook, while dad went to do some early Christmas shopping on his computer. I was content to watch a couple of episodes of a downloaded shows on my computer (before the battery went dead). Just as I was leaving tonight, my brother arrived from their visit to my sister-in-law's parents. I gave them the rest of the jello salad (she loves it).
Finally, to top the evening, I went over to the local Wal-Mart and participated in my first Black Friday event. I saw that they had an office chair on sale for $39 (well, technically the sale was on Thursday, but you get the idea). It's likely the only time I'll be a part of a Black Friday event, unless I hear of a super deal in the future. All of the other offers for this year do not interest me one bit.
Well, time for me to get back to reality. I need to check on my Wizard 101 game. Have a happy Thanksgiving!
