Family, Food, and Football...It Must be Thanksgiving!
After a l-o-n-g week of working on the boxes in the garage, we took a break from unpacking to celebrate the Thanksgiving Holiday. I hope each and every one of you has been blessed with much to be thankful for this year. My own list would include:
On our way home from Winston, I took the exit for Old Salem...one of our favorite places. We didn't have a whole lot of time, but I found a parking space right in front of Winkler's Bakery, so we joined the crowd inside. OMG. What wonderful, yummy smells! M stocked up on Moravian Cookies (in the tins), and then we got some sugar cakes, still warm from the oven. I took this photo of the goodies along with my Cat's Meow of Winkler's, which I've had for years. Still special.
Several have asked about Elmo's eyes. I'm happy to report that he's doing much better. Missy M took him to his follow-up vet visit today and reported that the pressure is still below those high numbers he registered when the glaucoma started. Can he see out of both eyes? Well, that's still up-in-the-air, as he doesn't really respond appropriately to the gestures that the vet tests him with. The verdict: M still has to administer the three kinds of eye drops, as the vet wants to maintain the progress he's made. Of course, at this rate, they are going to have to start going to the vet in an armored truck...too bad M can't get Elmo on her health insurance.
Yes, we had a wonderful weekend. And, now we are in the middle of decorating the house for the Christmas Holidays. The garage will just have to wait a little longer, I suppose.
We got the outside lights, etc., up and out yesterday before the sprinkles arrived. Good thing, too, as today has been drab and dreary...chilly and wet. I did get the candles in the windows this morning, so I'll be ready to post some photos tomorrow.
Be good! Remember, Santa's watching!
