    Happy Sunday!!! Hope everyone is doing well! Just stopping in real quick to say Hi. My friend and I are going to be starting lifting weights together via Zoom. We usually attend Zumba classes via Zoom and she just came up with the idea that we can lift weights through it. It’s going to be a busy week ahead. Trying to fit 5 days worth of work into 3 and to top that off they tripled the amount of work so it’ll be busy. Thankful that I have a job and it’s not slowing down anytime soon. And I actually get 2 days off! Thanksgiving and the day after. Will be a nice little break. I’ll get my tree that I tagged and start decorating. It’s my favorite time of the year and with this year being the way it is I want to DECORATE lol.

    Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

    Good morning,

    Cookies were good I ate too many, 2 bags on to neighbor and one in the freezer.

    Lana - many people are gluten or wheat intolerant and there are now many alternatives at stores.

    Missy!! I used to work retail and/or was the "fill in person" for holidays. I am working Friday just so a) we can catch up, b) boss will not be there (although I will get a to do list....) c) I dont have to use time off so I have enough for Christmas/New Years and d) there is a holiday "addition" to may pay. Whew that was long. I have 2 pre made trees I just bought from a church craft sale and they are about 1.5 feet tall and can go many places - lights on patio and christmas music will be coming out (my cd's we already have a radio station playing carols....I wait until AFTER Thanksgiving thank you.....). Zoom is being a great life line for people and if it helps with your exercise have a great time!

    Church sermon online, trip to pick up meds and then to do list is done except a pair of pants I need to hem. Wish me luck worst thing I could do is make them too short - oh well!!!!!

    Wave to all who follow. Stay safe and sane out there.

    Waving to Missy - that is a lot--cramming 5 days of work into 3. I hope that that means you're working longer hours. Otherwise, if you can increase productivity, it'll be expected all of the time. Go wild decorating. Post some photos, please.

    Sara - do you have holiday decorations? Photos please. Sara - Not this year, but some past years, I would get out the holiday music very early in the season. It sort of depended on whether it had snowed and or whether I had started my shopping early because I have to have that music on when I wrap gifts!

    Lynn - do you have snow on the ground yet up north where you are?

    Good evening,

    Almost done with the 3rd scarf to go into the 3 bags I picked up to be passed out for homeless people -someone made hats so they are in the bags as well. I will just keep knitting as gee I have enough yarn......

    Cookie recipe works well and I know people who are better off without chocolate and I wanted to know how the oatmeal/peanut butter combo worked anyways....so maybe tomorrow night make the dough?

    Pictures? No, but I can see about figuring out my phone.....

    Work is dumb and getting dumber- it was already a Reality TV show but wowie.... truth is always stranger than fiction.

    Got my 5k today and will make that necessary for the week to deal with stress.

    Young lady at work gave me a pen that writes in like 8 colors for the loan of my suitcase, so I can have fun and take better notes and keep track of things better.

    Wave to all who follow. Stay safe and sane out there.

    Good morning ~~

    Sara - that is kind of you to be involved with the bags for the homeless folks. And 8 colors in one pen sounds like a lot of fun--and helpful, as you said 👍🏻

    *waving at Antoine for more half caf*

    Good almost evening,

    Work is going along fine but I am tired and have make myself eat so a grilled cheese with chicken sandwich is what is waiting.

    I know I will work Friday, but I know Thursday I will be sleeping as much as possible. Good coffee sounds wonderful right now.

    Good morning ☀️

    This morning is walking with the ladies on the Bolin Creek path. It will be the same three ladies as last Wednesday, so I know better now. We will meet up of course, but I will tell them to not wait for me--I will not try to keep up with them. That way, I will be able to walk farther than I did last week. I must look out for my old self 😁. Also, if I walk by myself, I don't have to talk while I'm panting.

    I had a phone meeting with one of my lawyers yesterday (divorce), and holy cow do I have the longest do list ever of information to gather. Ugh.

    On a positive note, the suns seems to be coming out. Yay!

    Lana

    @tilliesmommy1 Zoom has been a lifesaver for my social life. So I kinda started listening to Christmas music today it keeps me relaxed. Somehow managed to get most of the work in. Anything that didn’t can wait until Monday. So happy to have 2 days off!!! Good luck with your Friday shift and scarf making I think scarf making is so cool. And my main job would also make a great reality show. The Office in real life lol at least it makes for an interesting day.

    @LanaCabana537 there will be photos plenty of them! Last year and the year before I didn’t do much wasn’t in the spirit of it. Good luck with everything with your divorce. My friend is going through a tough one too.

    Wishing my American friends a beautiful Thanksgiving tomorrow.

    I am currently baking an apple pie and I am hoping that will take it one moment at a time. I am grateful that I have loved ones that are safe and I am grateful that I have the opportunity to have goals like getting healthier.

    Much positivity,
    Melissa in NYC 😎

    Good evening,

    Sorry to be so late. What was supposed to be an easy dinner became pizza and cookie making- if you have a hot oven use it as much as you can. Pizza was chicken with bbq/smashed bean sauce - not bad and helps clean out my fridge.

    Melissa your positivity is refreshing and thank you. Apple pie - wow it has been ages since I had a home made apple pie - good for you for making one. I hope you get to spend time with your friends/family.

    Lana - I have never met your DH (duckhead) but I never liked him. Short term loss long term gain. Keep walking and thinking good thoughts.

    Peanut butter oatmeal cookies for someone who cant eat chocolate. So I will make another batch with choc chips but more oatmeal this weekend as well.

    Cranking up the headphones on Friday and work in peace. What a deal.

    Wishing all a good night. Early Happy Thanksgiving just in case. Stay safe and take care of yourself.
