Boy, is my belly full! We just had a great meal of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, noodles, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, corn, pumpkin pie and apple pie. yum yum. There were six of us, Bill, Starla, Bill's mother Mary, Tom, our friend Nate and myself. We had enough food for at least 12 more. I enjoyed cooking the meal and having people over. I miss entertaining. I always liked that.
Mary, we need to get together more. It is nice getting to know you.
Nate, I always enjoy your visits. Have you been going to church?
Tommy, I love you bunches.
Bill and Starla, love you bunches too.
Earlier in the day I went to visit my friend Lettie of Colleta's Kitchen Sink. She wasn't at home and I was hoping for a nice chat and a cup of tea, but that's okay. I ended up going to LaVale and got some more Christmas shopping done.
I found some really nice coffee cups for our truck at the Kichen Collection Store. They are tall and do not have a handle. They are ceramic with a rubber grip around the middle. They have a stretchy rubber sip through lid. I think they will work good for Pops and me. They don't have to wait for Christmas. lol
So I am done shopping for Drew, Starla and Bill, Grandkids and some odd and end gifts I needed. I feel pretty good about what I've done so far. I am looking for a small (very small) tree for our truck. Then I'll have to figure out how to keep it upright. I need lights too. It won't feel right if I don't have a tree and lights.
We got our first Christmas card in the mail today. It was from Uncle Carl and Aunt Chris. They live in the state of Idaho. I wonder if I'll ever get there and if I'll be able to visit with them. I also have an aunt that lives in Oklahoma. They are my mom's brother and sister in law. If you notice on my map, I've not been to either of those states yet.
I talked to Pops today. He finally told me that when he fell in the woods yesterday while hunting in Ohio that he broke his glasses. He told Starla yesterday and she told me. I was wondering if he was going to tell me or not. He said he thought I would yell at him. Who me? What is he talking about? I miss that man. I can't wait to see him on Saturday.
Bill, Allison and Hunter are going out there to hunt with him on Saturday. Hunter is so so so excited. He about can't stand himself. I feel bad for his teacher tomorrow. Bill talked to him on the phone last night and everything he said he repeated twice. He really is a hunter and he cannot wait to go to Ohio.
Starla is off again tomorrow. She got the heart monitor off today. She has to wait until Monday to find out the results of wearing that all week. I hope that all is okay.
I think that her and I will try to have a nice quiet day tomorrow. Well, I can hope can't I?
