How was your Thanksgiving? Ours was wonderful and exhausting. Terry's mom and two brothers and niece flew into town. And my dad was here with us also. It was so nice to have family here with us to celebrate.
Unfortunately our household has been striken with two nasty viruses that have slowly been working their way through the house. I believe the "stomach bug" is gone. Please Jesus! Now it is just the fever, upper respiratory yuck hanging on. Poor Mary Jane and Patrick made a trip to the doctors on Wednesday. They both had raging ear infections. Patrick continued to run a high fever until last night. I ended up running him to the ER yesterday morning after another bad night. Motrin and Tylenol were not doing the job with the fevers, and he was looking really sick. I was worried about sepsis, but the doc assured me it looked viral and to keep doing what we were doing. So back home we went. Last night was the first night that he slept through. He woke up with a temperature under a 100 and looking much better. I am hopeful that we have turned the corner.
Below are pictures of our kitchen. I took pictures because it was nice and clean right before I started cooking. It never looks this put together so I struck while the iron was hot. Doesn't it look great? It is my dream kitchen. All of those tears during the renovation were worth it. We have so much room in here. I feel so blessed.
I have my sight on curtains now. I think that will be a new year project. I'm thinking something like a yellow patterned valance. I think...still undecided. I started to browse Pinterest for ideas. Any suggestions?
Thanksgiving day was mostly relaxing. I woke up super early and started cooking and had my portion of the meal done by 11:30. After that I changed and ran Patrick to the ER.
There was a lot of football watching
Terry was in charge of the turkeys. We fried not one but two! They were so good. Nice and tender and juicy. Have you ever fried turkeys? Once we tried a fried turkey umpteen years ago, we never went back to roasting. So good.
