Here’s a pic of some of the guys watching the big game on Turkey Day.  I think it’s interesting how no one is sitting down!

You know, the game where the “other team” scored in the first 15 seconds of the game.  The same game where our quarterback made an impressive run through all the players and down the center of the field for a touchdown not too much longer.

A Gentle and Quiet Spirit

3 Don’t be concerned about the outward beauty of fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes. 4 You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God.       1 Peter 3:3-4 (New Living Translation)

We had a great meal for Thanksgiving.  Lunch occurred about 2:30, so I figure that was decent timing.

My sweet brother did the shopping on Tuesday.  We also made a trip to the store Thanksgiving morning, for a frozen pie crust.  After sorting through the beautifully-arranged pile of groceries from the Tuesday shopping trip, while at the same time organizing everything for the upcoming bake-a-thon, I realized that we had sweetened-condensed milk instead of evaporated milk.

Thus, we made trip number two to town.  We stopped at the first store that was still open (approaching 10:30 A.M., but they didn’t have evaporated milk.  We went to the next store, a “dollar store,” which did have a can of evaporated milk.  I was so excited that I hugged the lady employee who was stocking shelves in that aisle!

Here is what we had for Thanksgiving Dinner 2009:

Smoked Turkey (already cooked, we just had to heat it up; we used a Reynold’s Oven Bag)


Turkey Gravy

Sweet Potato Casserole

Mashed Potatoes (for the non-sweet potato person)

Cheesy Cauliflower


Loaf of Bread (for the person who wanted bread with their meal)

Cranberry Sauce

Pumpkin Pie (as of 8:00 P.M. on Thanksgiving night, it still hadn’t been touched, because everyone was either loving second helpings of dinner or was just too plain full)

This is a Jayne Cobb ear-flap hat I made with Vanna’s choice yarn.  I used black and red in order to make a Texas Tech hat.

Exercise Week 2 Finished

I’ve finally finished Week 2’s exercises.  In a month, I’ve done 12 complete workouts from the Navy Seal workout book.  I’m moving at a slower pace than what’s called for in the book, but at least I have an exercise program that I can use whenever I find the time or the motivation to exercise.

This weekend, I got in some good walking.  Even though the weather was cold, it was nice to get outside.

Next up, I’m going to work on getting through Week 3’s exercises.  There are 6 workouts, and I’m already working my way through the first one.  I’ve done the walking, so now I need to do the push ups and ab work.
