I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We had a fabulous time. But, like most of you we had too much food. The turkey soaked in apple juice was outstanding, very juicy and a big hit. So was the small ham we did. My yeast rolls turned out "So-So" I need to perfect them.
Yesterday was the infamous "black Friday" I ventured out at 5am, just to make a trip to Home Depot.Since selling my other one, we wanted a new Pre-lit tree. They were having them on sale for 59.00- multi colored LED, that also changed to white lights. They also had a work bench that Senior liked. So I got up and went. I got in the store, got what I wanted and got out. I was home and back in bed by 5:45am. And that was the extent of my Black Friday.
My brother and my GFIL made it here from NC. They have been together since April, and this is the first time for our family to meet her. She is a lovely lady, lots of fun and full of life. They go well together, and I hope in her my brother finds the happiness he has searched for but with all the wrong people.
My brother and I never had a good relationship growing up, finally after his second divorce we got close, and became the friends we never were. He comes to town now and stays at my house. His company is always welcome and fun. He likes to bring his dog, her name is Sasha and she is a Whippet. I feel sorry for her, she was bought during my brothers second marriage, and has been moved around a lot. I wish so much for him to give her to us, so she can have a stable home.
My brother told us on Thanksgiving he has taken a contract in Spokane, WA. GFILs family is all out there and they are moving from NC in January. This news brought tears to my eyes and has deeply depressed me. My brother has always lived far away, but since he has been in NC he has been able to jump in his truck and drive home. Now, with this move he won't be able to do that. We will be lucky to see him once a year. And for sweet Sasha, it will be yet another move..
I will miss him being close. : ( I think I need a hug.
