Sounds good to me, Kathleen! But is KFC even open on Thanksgiving? 

Hi Rita! Good for you two, snoozing in the recliners. That's a lot of winterizing to do. 

Well, they kept saying they wanted the show to "go in a different direction". She sure has done that! Between her "look at me" and someone saying something on "social". And she says the stupidest things about dancing, she doesn't know a thing and she sure does ask about comments. Just shut up, Tyra, and let me see the dancers. OK, thanks, Thel, I am done with that rant for now. I think my tacos are really burritos, they are soft shells. Taco meat, refried beans if you want them, black beans, and saffron rice. We like that better than taco rice or mexican rice or whatever they call it. Alice will hit me with her broom when she finds out everything I use is packaged. 

My couch has built in recliners, Kim. The only thing is, the thing is so heavy! I don't like moving furniture around anyway, so once it's in place, I'm good. Except sometimes I get a bug to vacuum under it, and I can't do that. Or behind it. We have a guest room in the FL house? Yippee! Do we get to put our names on weeks, so we can all take turns visiting? How fun! FL beach, nice warm, white sand squishing between my toes. 

That cracks me up, Kim! He actually admitted to falling asleep? In his recliner, I am sure. With a quilt pulled up to his chin, too. 

The dishwasher guy should show up sometime today. Our window is 8-5. Thanks for narrowing that down, people! not that we are going anywhere, but it would be nice to have a window. If I need to do something, like shower or leave the house or something, I will let Mr. B stay home and wait for him. 

It's cool today, and overcast. I don't think we will get any rain, but we have the clouds. Just like WA clouds. 

I sure didn't sleep good last night. I don't even know why, but it took me maybe an hour and a half to get to sleep. I don't like that. I may have to snooze in my recliner while I'm waiting for that repair dude to come.

Good morning, it is raining today but I'm working all day so I won't even notice. 

The Assistant Captain emailed everyone last night apologizing for missing the meeting. He said he fell asleep. Probably in a recliner. Oh well. At least we had pizza to eat while we waited for him.

I started a new audio book last night but I can't seem to remember any of it so I must have slept really good last night. Don't remember waking up at all till this morning.

Well nothing else to report from here. I guess it's time to get ready for the day.

Have a great day...

Going out for meetings that don't end up happening is a real pain isn't it Kim.  Geeze !! 

Gotta have that cranberry sauce with my turkey AND in my leftover turkey sammies.

Oh, I love the extra crispy chicken too Thel. KFC it is then.

Comment by Kim Webb 13 hours ago

Back from the ambulance meeting that didn't happen. The Captain was working. He is a police officer and the Assistant Captain didn't show up. Don't know what that was about but not very good.

Glad Finn is feeling better Rita but try not to let him do too much, too soon. We don't want a set back after everything he went through. Tie him to that recliner.

We have recliners here Barbara. There just isn't one in my house. I have a couch and two club chairs in the living room. We are looking to replace the couch with a couch that has recliners built in. We really like the ones we got for the Florida house last year.

Oh no Kathleen. Say it isn't so. KFC for Thanksgiving? You can get mashed potatoes and gravy there though so that's good. Make sure you have cranberry sauce though. None of that at KFC.

N sewing happened here today. We had a fire call this afternoon that I went to. It didn't take long but then I vacuumed and mopped the downstairs floors so that looks better anyway.

And I was looking at the good fortune quilt and decided to do a cross hatch pattern on it. I think that will look good. And it's for the guest bedroom in Florida so it will be good for that room.

Well it's about time to get ready for bed.

Have a good night...

You must have been typing on my fingers Rita.  My goodness what a lot of work you've gotten done towards winter prep.  You need a couple days off now.  I hope Finn continues to improve and you can relax and rest some.   Hugs to you.  

Comment by Thel in Mid-MO 13 hours ago

I decided to release the black kitty that made it's way into the trap.  I want to stick to the target abandoned family.  Sure don't want to capture and move someone personal furr baby.  

Emmm tacos Froggie.  I gotta do that soon.  I don't really like refried beans either but I love black beans.  I use them a lot.  I was gonna ask you about Dancing Froggie and keep forgetting.  AND we agree about Tyra.  I can't stand her and her crazy stupid outfits and questions.  I don't know how she got chosen but they can nix her anytime and I'd be happy.  

KFC for Thanksgiving Kim !!   That could work for me as long as it was the extra crispy and there was lots of mashed tater and extra gravy.   I'm still not doing any drive through or take out as our local numbers continue to increase.   (Except the BBQ place whose owners I personally know-and their cautions).

Well, we are both so tired we are napping in recliners. We had to  winterize everything, Finn mostly supervised, we had a great friend come and help, I am pretty limited with what my shoulders can do, but  boy do I feel like it was over done,we drained water pipes and hoses drained big tank, garden closed down,fire hoses drained ,and stowed. Electric pumps put away, suck hose out of the creek. Pots cleaned , greenhouse winterized. Etc etc. He is doing okay, drain tube out Wed.

Marilyn, thanks for checking in. Glad to hear you and DH are beginning to feel better. I know what you mean with your stomach. Mine does that sometimes. I tell my mom my tummy is making coffee machine noises!

Now we need to hear from Rita about Finn.

Yay, Barbara! You have heat. Good that they only charged for one visit. Hopefully they won't need to come back again!

DH just said tonight maybe he will go pick up a bucket of KFC for Thanksgiving. I kinda think he was serious. 

Comment by Linda Froggie Quilter (Okla) 14 hours ago

That's good news, Marilyn, I hope you both keep feeling better. I like making my mac and cheese with velveeta on the stove. It's creamy and easy. 

I know you enjoy cooking for just yourself, Thel, so that does make sense. Good for you! 

Oh that is good news, Barbara! No need to call the news stations, BBB, anyone like that. Oh well. I was ready to come out hitting! Stay warm. 

Oh Thel,, I hope you figure that cat out! You are the cat whisperer, so if anyone can calm it down and check it out, it will be you! 

I decided to work on some pocket pieces for Myra's pot holders. I think they are cute. Well, one is done, and the second is just started. I somehow left a green on the machine, and part of a flower stitched green. So, I started ripping. Then it was time to start dinner, so I left it sitting to wait until tomorrow.  It would look weird green, plus it should match the other one that's finished. I think It's salvageable. 

DGS1 and I made tacos for dinner. They were so good! I had black beans for this batch, I love them! I'm not a big fan of refried beans, so I like to use whole black beans. Yum. And we had some scoops whole grain chips. And some different salsa DGS1 bought. It was good, too. 

Now it's almost time for Dancing to come on. I really hate Tyra Banks. I don't think she has added anything to the show, but then I'm not the young age group that would love to see her in different outfits, either!
