The weather played a part in my plans. Ran out first thing this morning to S&S and got a nice plump little chicken for 79 cents a lb. It's been a while since I roasted one, but just put it in the oven at 425 (Ina), celery and onion in the cavity, and set it on a bed of carrots, potatoes and onions, sprinkled all over with lemon pepper, and poured a little melted butter/oil over all. The aroma has already roused Cheerio!
Nasty, cold out. One of my appts. put me in contact with 2 people sneezing, coughing, sore throats, oh, I couldn't get out of there fast enough. Washed and washed my hands when I got home and will take an extra vitamin C after supper. This is no time of year to feel sick - which they did.
Hope your husband made out alright with his test, Pingo. Not a pleasant one, but necessary, as we get older.
Have a dental cleaning tomorrow, and then Thursday getting together with a friend for lunch and as much poking in stores as she can tolerate.
Amber, glad you are getting bites on your resumes. Hope something comes up for you soon. That would be the perfect Christmas gift. How are you feeling?
Princess, please check in. No word, makes me afraid that you have landed in the hospital again.
No signs of the turkeys around here since Thanksgiving - hmmmm. Harry is still out there every morning, eats and then leaves. This morning he poked his head in the door, hissed at Cheerio, and then backed up waiting for me to put his dish of food down. Sooner or later he'll end up stepping inside, I know.
Checked with my nanny friend and she was able to pull off the gourmet Thanksgiving dinner she had planned, soup to nuts - and chestnuts. Said she doesn't plan on doing that again for at least a year.
Saw Jeff Lewis' finale is tonight, so that's imprinted on my memory to stay alert to watch that. This early bedtime I've fallen into is not good. Half dozed a little this afternoon sitting on the couch, so that should help.
OK, wash to throw in and litter box to scoop. Birdfeeder has been filled, so birds are all set for any bad weather.
