Tiffany and I spent about six hours shopping, getting supplies for the Holiday Bash tonight. I absolutely love all parts of this event but it makes for a tiring week. I think next year, if we do this, that I’ll get my own errands run the week before to cut down on the number of times I need to go into town during the week of preparation. You see, the day after spending six hours running around getting Bash supplies, we spent about four hours running our own errands.
Yesterday I had a great group of ladies helping me decorate. It is a simple decorating scheme and I, once again, did not get any pictures. I’ll try to remember to get some today and post them up here before the weekend is over.
Tiffany and I will be at the church most of the day cooking and finishing up some of the things that we didn’t get to yesterday. We’ve got turkeys, hams, red potatoes, radishes, and green beans to cook. Rolls will be brought, as will pies . . . pumpkin, apple, and pecan.
I was going to make a low-carb/keto/gluten-free/thm pecan pie and an apple pie. I got the pecan pie done but by the time I finally settled on what to do about the apple pie, it was too late to do it. Now if I weren’t going to be at the church using all available cooking devices, I’d make it there but alas.
I’m also excited this weekend because I may get to see Brian, Lauren, and Liam. We are celebrating my brother-in-law’s birthday this weekend and will be discussing the upcoming holidays. It will be great to see them. If not, well, we’ll get to see them in a couple weeks, on Thanksgiving. I’m really quite spoiled and I know it! I have a dear friend whose grandchildren live in other states, one even lives on the west coast–that’s far! If I had to, I’m sure I’d find a way to still be a part of is life but I’m thankful that he lives much closer than that.
Well, there’s much to do today! Better get going.
Until next time, God bless,
