I'm trying to get the oomph to do some grocery shopping.

Waiting for the last of today's 10 loaves of French bread to finish their last rise. I'm reviewing my menu/recipes for Thanksgiving dinner and what I want to prepare for this Sunday's breakfast. It's nice to study something other than bread for a change.

It feels good to sit down and veg.

Making a menu and shopping list for Thanksgiving. Followed by a work plan.

Once again the process is complicated by conflicting likes and dislikes. Everyone likes butternut squash but cannot agree on a green veg they will all eat. Two out of three like asparagus. This is my side of the family. Now I have to tackle SO's side.

I'm stuffing Azia in Joy and we're going to Bloomfield's Dish Barn in Hendersonville. I'm going to take photos of some dishes I like and put them here for your opinions.

Bye for now!

With love,
~Cat

Okay. I'm dressed for outdoors and about to head out and grocery shop. Costco rotisserie chicken for supper. I will be too pooped to cook.

One of these days I'm going to have to Mapquest the nearest Costco just to see what this rotisserie chicken is all about.

I think I can come up with more bribes for you to sell me to the gypsies. As soon as I get Donald Trump's debit card number and his PIN, I'll let you know.

It's so difficult with these details. This security thing of debit and credit cards certainly interfere with friendships here.

With love (and so very much for Addie also),

Thank you Cat. I had rather rough night last night. When I finally fell asleep, I slept until three this afternoon. And then I turn on the computer and you want to get Donald's pin number. Your delightful sense of humor keeps me going on days like this. And it certainly brightens up this forum. I feel so much better today. Thank you and all others for caring. Who knew one of the smallest bones in your body (outside of your ear bones) could cause so much misery. I don't remember this much pain from 40 years ago the first time I broke this dang bone. Or maybe I was just young and stupid.

The first thing I did when I woke up was take a Vicodin. I will not let the pain today get a head of me. You are safe from the gypsies today.

Don't forget that wrist brace.
