We have had a wonderful Thanksgiving. It was just the four of us. Robin cooked turkey and ham. We also had dressing and mashed potatoes. She cooked herself some rutabagas. She also made a Boston Creme Cake and a banana pudding for deserts. It was nice being able to sit down and have a traditional lunch. After that we played Apples To Apples and Trivial Pursuit. It would have been nice to have had the rest of our family here but that is just one of the things that happen as we all get older. People move away and we see each other less. I believe that makes us even more thankful for them.
Robin has to work in the morning. She’s still watching orientation and training videos so it won’t be like working the register on Black Friday. Of course, she worked at Walmart for years so it’s not like K-Mart would be any different. We’re just thankful that she has a job now. So many people are less fortunate.
That’s about it for tonight. It’s now time to start getting into Christmas mode. I want to get an Advent calendar for the house this year. I also want to follow the daily Advent readings that are found in the lectionary. I know that our particular group doesn’t follow the Church calendar and we don’t use the Book of Common Prayer or anything like that. I just thought it might be something neat to do in my personal devotions for the next month.
Grace and peace.
