Consider this lazy filler. I've been enjoying this "long" weekend. Here's Ray's turkey - gloriously tasty. It was Norman Rockwell perfect. He also did a ham with a lovely glaze. I did clean up later after we hosted eighteen people. Plenty of food, laughs, and good cheer. We are a very fortunate family and all get along. I am grateful
Remember my post about the store REI promoting the fact that they were closed on Black Friday so their employees could enjoy the great outdoors. Excellent idea and promotion. Now that I look back at their ads, they only featured sunny skies. Hmmm.
Here I am outdoors on Friday - now what?? So far - Thursday thru Saturday - we've had six inches of rain. That's a lot in a short period of time. I'm not keen on a sloshy hike. It's rather cold too.
The heck with the great outdoors. Ray and I did our duty as Americans to help the economy - armed with coupons we spent an hour at Kohl's and got some darn good bargains. Then we parked our butts on the couch and watched television - sports, movies, netflix, whatever mind candy was available.
and we ate leftovers..........see that turkey picture above. This story has come full circle.
