Just wanted to send a big fat happy birthday to my daddy!! His birthday always lingers around Thanksgiving, so it is never hard to see it coming. Some years it actually falls on the holiday. I have to remember to ask my grandma if my dad was actually born on Thanksgiving… I wonder if she was putting all the holiday fixings together when my dad decided it was time to enter the world.
Tomis and I both had the day off of work today. Tomorrow we will head over to my parents house for a catered feast haha. Mom recently had mouth surgery and can’t chew very well, so asking her to fill the house with the smell of turkey is really unfair. I could have cooked… but never have I prepared a turkey. I wouldn’t know the first thing to do. I make damn good mashed potatoes, and I could probably rustle up a decent cake… but every other traditional menu item would be an experiment for me. Therefore, Marie Calendars is catering our Thanksgiving haha. Tomis and I have loads of wine and beer to cart over for our contribution, and Grandma Betty is sure to bring yummy pie. I have my fingers crossed for blueberry… it is my favorite 🙂
At the moment I am trying desperately hard not to fall asleep. We got a new chair for our living room to serve two purposes; 1) to fill a very empty and sad looking corner, and 2) to have a nice place for me to read my smutty english monarchy books. We picked up a papasan chair from Cost Plus World Market, and the thing is so comfortable I can barely keep my eyes open. It is a beautiful addition to our living room as well.
