Default Steel Magnolias #96

We are just relaxing this evening after coming home from the buffet around 12:30. It was great and we enjoyed it very much. There weren't as many people there as the last couple of years. There were a lot of empty tables so maybe most went to the 1 PM buffet. The food was really good. They had a nice salad area and fresh seafood. I had several cold shrimp but they had cold crab claws too. They had a lovely vinaigrette I really liked.

I didn't eat a whole lot. I really never do at these things so I don't get my money's worth. I go for salads first and fill up on them then don't eat a lot of entrees. I did have a slice of cheesecake but didn't eat all of it only about half and it was a thin slice so no harm with it. The one thing I did eat that was fabulous was this great sweet potato casserole. It didn't have marshmallows all over it, it had this lovely pecan crust on it and it was delicious. I only took a spoonful though as I have no idea how much sweetner was in it.

Jack is sitting in the recliner playing Soduku on his Ipad. That game gives me a headache. lol I play several games and a couple card games, but enjo the celebrity crossword and the gin game the best I think.

Jean: Hope your "bread" came out nicely and was yummy and you are having a lovely time with your family.

Maggie and Susan: Hope your day was wonderful with whomever you spent it with!

Have a great evening. Faye

Good morning. It is very chilly here this morning, but I am not venturing out on Black Friday, period!

I am laundering my snowman and drying it and have the felt pieces cut out and ready to be put on so I can finish them. I need to go upstairs this morning and wrap all of Jackson's gifts and bring them down to be packed for shipping. I ordered Thomas's Christmas gift so now I have all the Christmas shopping done.

I stayed up very late last night finishing a book so I am pooped this morning. I want to nap but I really need to get this Christmas stuff done today if I can so I can get it mailed.

Hope everyone is having a nice Friday. Faye

Good Morning! The sun has come out and it is supposed to be warming up. Tomorrow is predicted to be in the 50s so our snow will be gone again. Yesterday's leftovers are on tap for lunch whenever Bob gets home from making coffee stops. I went to get my nails done and wanted to get new library books. The library was closed so I dropped my book in the chute and will stop next week. Bob mentioned putting the outside Christmas lights up/out this afternoon. Then he mentioned putting the tree up but I'm not really in the mood. I need to work in the downstairs bedroom where people put their coats on Christmas Day. I bought some greenery and mini lights for the mantle but now need to find some place to put the stuff I removed from the mantle.

"Gma," I don't have the patience to play Soduko. I usually play solitaire, hearts, or majong. Glad you enjoyed the seafood on the buffet. We went to WM Wed. evening and there were pallets piled high, wrapped in plastic, of the things for the Thanksgiving Day sale. All had signs saying "no purchase until 6 pm, Thursday." There is no way I would battle the crowds! The Asian guy who does my nails said they drove by and there were no parking places so they didn't stop. Thanks for staring the new thread last night. Congrats on being done with your shopping! Wish you could come and help me!

I need to fold towels from the dryer and get another load going. Hope you all enjoy a nice day!
