But still, I wholeheartedly hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. And if you are outside of the US, I hope you had a great Friday today. Yesterday was one of the nicest Thanksgivings we’ve ever had. It was small and quiet. We woke up early and I made cinnamon rolls from scratch for the band breakfast. I’m not a big food-picture-taker. Here’s a shot of them before I put them in the oven. I was pleased with how they turned out. Apparently, they were a HUGE hit with the high schoolers. I made an orange frosting for them. The frosting recipe calls for Frangelico, but I skipped it because, 1 – minors, and 2 – nut allergies. It was not missed.
Being a senior in the band means that the underclassmen come around the night before the Thanksgiving game to TP the house.
We went to the game. Of course, being typical band parents, we went to the first half and the halftime show. This was DS the Elder’s last regular-season game as drum major. Sniff! He did a great job. I’m so proud of him.
After halftime, DH dropped me at home so I could get the turkey going. My sister joined us, and the boys came home after the game. We had a lovely, low-key dinner, with lots of laughter and great times. I hope your Thanksgiving (if you celebrate it) was just wonderful. And I am truly thankful for all of you that I have had the pleasure to meet on the Internet, and in person!
On Wednesday, I had a boatload of work to do before knocking off (well, sort of) for the long weekend. But it was one of those days where I walked into my office, looked around, said, “Damn, I hate this layout!” and rearranged everything. Yes, I was tanked on caffeine, but it needed it and I really like the results.
My sewing room in my house needs a complete redo as well. I started that today, but I am suffering a tryptophan hangover, so I’ll try to finish it up this weekend.
Meanwhile, DH and I set up the lights on the house. This year we added two flamingos with Santa hats. I love them!
Oh, and in other DS the elder news, he got into Penn State!!!! That’s his first acceptance. Actually, that’s the first of all the colleges we’ve heard from. He loved Happy Valley, so we’ll see if we have a Nittany Lion at this point next year…
