Just a Quick Note

Hi, nothing going on here lately to talk about. Have been flying under the radar and doing some reading and watching TV and dreaming about working on quilts instead of actually doing any sewing.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We went to my oldest daughter's house over the holidays. Had a seafood dinner for Thanksgiving Day because her oldest son is in his "I want to be a vegetarian" stage. I put that in parens because who knows with teenagers how long their "stages" are going to last, lol.

I cooked scallops and angel hair pasta with sauce, Summer cooked barbecued shrimp and Kurt smoked fish on the grill. He also smoked a turkey for thanksgiving eve when we had some dressing etc. Scalloped potatoes, stacked green salad, jello salad, rolls, etc, all of that stuff. Great food.

We also played Mahjong while we were there. That was a lot of fun also.

The Sooners ended up winning the South Big 12 and are scheduled to play Missouri this coming Saturday in Kansas City. Speaking of, Sharon, is our bet still on? If so, then you better be ready to lose, Oklahoma is play pretty tough, lol. I am so excited, they have been playing so well lately it has been a joy to watch them.

Need to do some Christmas sewing, and just not in the mood. Am so far behind on everything. I am blaming my lack of accomplishments on my eyes bothering me bunches, and my hands hurting like the dickens from the RA. I have doc appts next week; hopefully they will have some answers for me. Not whining here, just tired of not feeling like doing anything.

Our weather is getting wintery and I think Aud has hunkered down for the winter. Can't get her out of the house.

Have been ready some very salacious books lately. I skip those parts because the story line is so intriguing I am really enjoying them. Also reading Obama's first book. He is a good writer, just as he is a good speaker. I am hoping that all will be well with our economy with him at the helm. I didn't vote for him but I think he will make an excellent leader.

Hope everyone is doing ok during these stressful days. We just have to have hope that things will be better soon, so hang in there. Hmm, didn't mean to get on a soap box, lol. Guess I have been watching the news too much.

All for now, will try to post more often. It is 4 am here and I am just now going to bed; still having trouble sleeping, so I don't go to bed until around this time, and sleep until noon or one. Absolutely ridiculous I know, but I can't seem to stop.

Oh, well, somewhere it is daylight now, right? lol

Lots of hugs to all.

I think you've got your days and nights mixed up Perry, like my babies used to do!!! LOL I'm glad you're still kickin. I asked Jackson how you were doing and he told me you were up for Thanksgiving. I've missed your posts though and if anyone besides the Cowboys were to win the Big 12 South, I guess I'm glad it was the Sooners (an okie at heart I am).
