It's a chilly-willy day here, sunny but quite cool, so I am sitting back and leisurely writing out our Christmas cards. It's rather pleasant and I'm able to jot nice notes to those who will receive our cards.

Christmas cards... good idea. I think I'll do that, too.

Don't forget to send one to the nice lady at W&S.

Relaxing in the recliner. Went out to breakfast with the neighbors, threw a load of laundry in. Need to leave for the funeral in about an hour.

We just got home from a lovely Thanksgiving celebration in the Chicago area with a bunch of cousins and cousinettes and their spawn. Stayed with BIL. We drove to the main meal on Thursday, which consisted mostly of glutin-free vegetarian fare, which was a first for us. They did serve turkey, and when we got back to BIL's I made stock with the carcass they were gonna throw away, and that I insisted on taking. Black Friday we got some real food from a couple wonderful (and expensive) restaurants and followed up with a Costco visit. Wallet is MUCH lighter.

So now I'm putting away the Costco purchases and watching the Food Network. Beagle is much calmer now that she's home.

Boiling a ham bone to make bean soup for dinner tonight. It's almost done and then I can strain it and start adding other stuff. Turkey is great and turkey leftovers are fantastic but a break for a day seemed like a good idea.

I just rummaged through the pantyhose/tights/socks drawer. I need a pair of pantyhose to wear tonight.

I stopped when I found four pairs with no obvious holes. I know from experience, that there might be tiny holes that ladder as soon as I put them on, so I want to be ready. I save the ones with not-too-bad holes to wear under trousers. Hmm, I don't think I have done that in quite a while. If it's cold enough to wear pantyhosers under trousers, it's cold enough to wear the footless cotton tights I use as long underwear. That's it. Those old, holey pantyhosers are going to fibre recycling.

Thanks for the reminder,TL! I so need new black pantihose, the rubber waistband has disintegrated in all mine. I put them on, and they descend to my knees unless I'm wearing city shorts or trousers.

Started decorating for Christmas. SO did the outside lights yesterday and I started with the wayfarers candles in the windows. Hooked the candles to timers so they go on and off without a thought. Synchronization will follow. More stuff to bring down from the attic. Back soon.
