My first adventure in real Thanksgiving cooking today. With help of a good friend, I made some amazing turkey breasts. I also cooked sweet potatoes, complete with marshmallows browned on top. And there were garlic mashed potatoes as well. We had dinner with Mike and his family, who made all manner of vegetarian dishes, from chop salad to potato latkes and a meatless meatloaf. There was also pumpkin pie and rice crispy treats for dessert, complete with ice cream and whipped cream.

Had a great party last weekend with friends, but it unfortunately passed the flu around to a good handful of the attendees. I was down for the count the first half of this week. Recovering, fortunately, in time to have dinner today. Several are still down and ill.

The next two days are going to be crazy at work, but as I had the last two days off due to illness, I could do with some crazy. But really folks, let’s not stampede anybody this year, eh? (Not at my job, we don’t do doorbusters much, but in general.) Nothing is more important than the health and safety of your fellow shoppers. Be nice to your cashiers, we’re doing our best, and please, don’t tell us you could get it cheaper online. We are consumers, too.

Still Packing June 16, 2011

Office is fully packed Including the junk closet. Bathroom is half packed and the bedroom has a couple boxes out of it. Some stuff has been thrown out, some has been donated, some sold for a pittance. A bag of donation clothes is forming in the hallway as well. My note about getting someone to cover my shift is gone, so I’ll call a couple possibles tomorrow. Hours are good, but getting the keys before everyone is sitting around waiting with a truck full of stuff would be better. People have donated tons of boxes, I think I might have enough at this point. We’ll see. Excited for the move, but still a lot to do.

Lovely picnic with friends this weekend. Smoked brisket and pulled pork and a deep fried turkey. Delicious. And the weather was nice this year. I even managed not to get a sunburn.

Father’s day is coming up. Thank you, Dad, for always being there and being understanding.

Oh! Went to the doc, got back on Plaquenil and Naproxen. She was impressed, but we’re gonna try to get me up that last little bit to great.

So much to do, I can’t stay focused to write much more. I don’t think next week is going to be any better. 😉
