We baked the Pumpkin pie and put the turkey in the crockpot this year. It was very much repeatable. I found the recipe on the SouthernPlate blog........ delicious! I don't think we ever had a turkey this soft. I guess there IS a silver lining to having a micro-mini oven that has a mind of its own! Had we had a normal size, normal acting oven, I might not have tried cooking the turkey in the slowcooker...... :-)
I felt good enough this week to do a little "pre-work" for setting up the tree. I know, I was going to put it up this weekend, but I just couldn't get my head around it, so I will postpone it a couple of days. Mike has to go to work on wednesday, so I may do it than. No harm done if it waits a week either though. Tomorrow we HAVE to do the rest of the Sinterklaas shopping, since we are expected at my sisters house this Sunday. Mike finally found out that he has that sunday off, and he had been putting off shopping, thinking he wouldn't go. (Since he pulled my name in the drawing, I was NOT about to offer to shop for him, so it's all up to Mike for that one! LOL)
I did get a little shopping in over the weekend, and a little scrapping, a little planning, a little cleaning, and more thinking than I wanted to. This flue is giving me the creeps. The last week, I've had nightmare after nightmare about being back on chemo, not able to function, and everybody I come in contact with wanting to do tests and in between I run thru endless white hallways....... I eat every imaginable vitamin we have in the house trying to get rid of this thing, in hopes that the nightmares stop. I hoped keeping busy would help with the cobwebs, but it doesn't..... Anybody have any ideas?
In my urge to get organized, I started moving some of the things from one drive to another, and noticed that in shifting things, the size of files changes. No idea why, or how, just that it does. I also "loose" things from folders, but when I put them side by side, everything is there. This does not make sense to me, and I wonder if it is something in the formatting of the disk. The good thing is, that for most things, I still have the zipfiles, if push comes to shove..... I haven't been able to focus very much, so I haven't gotten very far, but it's a start, no?
I'm not sure if I posted some of these, but I know for a fact some of them are brand new, since I only made them today :-) So, here it goes:

That's all for now. Please forgive the whining.... The weather has been very grey, without the fun of winter snow and combining that with not feeling right, has me a little out of sorts. Hopefully, putting up the tree and decorating the house for the holidays will get me out of whichever funk I landed in these last coupe of days.......
Meanwhile, enjoy and hug a loved one :-)
