I am an "older" woman with breast cancer (I was diagnosed at 65 and am now 66).  I notice that most of the posts seem to be from people younger than I am (often by quite a bit...).   I'd love to "talk" with others my age, exchange info about their diagnoses, effects on their lives, etc.   I see that there is a forum for young women.

Someone suggested that maybe it's that older people aren't so computer-savvy or aren't used to being in online discussion groups.   However, for those who are, it would be great.

My sister will be coming by today to pick up her birthday present, my rhumba. I seldom used it and decided to give it to her. She has mostly wooden floors so it should work better for her. I have mostly carpet.

Today I'll mix up a dough and roll out thin dumplings for tomorrow night's meal, Chicken and Dumplings. The dumplings are similar to homemade noodles. My mother was from Mississippi and she made this dish for our family. It was a big favorite and will be a treat.

I'm happy not to be "on the road" this Thanksgiving holiday.

Carole, the chicken and dumplings sounds fantastic. I made that but roll out lots of noodles, heavily floured, then dry them all. What I don't use I then put in freezer bags so I can have home made noodles any time I get an urge. I try not to get it too often though.

Hope your sister likes her birthday present. I have no carpet either. Too many animals and fur to get caught up in carpet.

Doing another double duty day -- so will get to skip the one job on Friday and only one to do. So, I'll be tired today, but the rest of the week will be fine.

My kids loved chicken and dumplings so much I had to double the recipe. I didn't roll them, just put them in by the spoonful. DD was caring for Mom when she was in hospice care and she made them for my uncle. He was in rapture. Mom had been using canned biscuits for a while and he didn't like those dumplings at all.

I remember "dumplings" more like Wren does. Globs of dough dumped on top of a stew of any kind of meat and then baked until the dough was cooked. Was thinking about that the other day.

I'll play golf tomorrow and then come home and make dressing and scolloped corn just like Aunt Mildred did. Cranberries are already cooling. Larry and Debbie are bringing hor'dorves (even spell check isn't figuring that out so hope you can) and dessert. He said a spice cake. They are our bubble buddies.

Today the roofers showed up at 7:40 and worked straight through until it was almost 5 and dark. Found my back porch needed all new plywood, the front porch area where I had a leak - wood rot was more extensive than anticipated (shiplap), and there was some wood damage near the chiminey, it also got replaced. So very glad to have it done and know we're good for another 25 years. And it's raining now.

Tomorrow, it seems, should be warmer but also with some rain. We're going to my nieces for dinner. My sister is sick, 101 fever, and has an appointment tomorrow for COVID test. We're hoping she has the flu. How bad is that, wishing it's flu. Our gathering just got smaller.

Wishing you all a very enjoyable Thanksgiving. Alone or among family, I hope your day goes well.

We had Gordy & Leslie over for (masked & distanced) outdoor drinks & dessert. At first, we were on the deck, but then the rain started back up (that's what you'll be getting tomorrow, Cindy) so we moved through the gangway to the covered but still open front porch. Somehow, when you're with the ones you love, it's warmer than the thermometer says.

Just Bob & me tomorrow--picking up a turkey dinner from Cellars, its "last hurrah," as they put it, till spring 2021. I hope their GoFundMe page stays up through the winter so they can come roaring back. They said something cryptic earlier about New Year's Eve: maybe a pop-up "to go" or even outdoor champagne toast. Speaking of such potent potables, Michelin 3-star restaurant Everest, which had planned to make NYE its own swan song (chef Joho wanted to retire anyway and go back to hunting & fishing), is instead selling its entire wine cellar for half-price.

I did get my mani-pedi today. Hopefully, they will continue to stay open, and my back is in better shape in two weeks for my next appt.

In fear of covid shutting down hair salons again, on Tuesday evening I ran to our mall for a hair cut. I had an appt on the books for 12/9 with my latest stylist, but it could close. Fear of a bad cut was along side fear of covid. Much to my relief I received a great shampoo, cut & style. It was a Paul Mitchell salon and the price was $18 less than my last stylist.

Sandy - No pedicure yet for me. My my regular place is small, always crowded. Mall has 1 or 2 but they scare me. Toes will have to wait. Glad you were able to enjoy your visit with Gordy & Leslie.

It is raining! But knowing we'll get a great meal & conversation later today, it can't put a damper on the day. Happy Thanksgiving!

My nail salon is keeping strict precautions--spacing out appointments so that there are no more than 3 clients, 3 techs, and the receptionist at any given time. No waiting indoors--either for service or for rides home. Not keeping my mani-pedi appt. was not an option, because I needed my ingrown toenails done (and the salon owner does a better job--albeit sans adequate topical anesthesia--than my podiatrist, who practices at a "hot spot" hospital and, I understand, may be retiring).

Happy T-day, as we sit down to our "pre-leftovers" (our meal for 2-3 will likely provide food for the next few days).

Our turkey-less roll with dressing was pretty good with the gravy. DH cooked vegetables underneath the roll. He bought a pumpkin chiffon pie that was excellent. We had a family zoom call and one great niece was at a dinner for 11 people including children from 3 households. She works as a lunch lady at a school and also at Target. I just kept wondering how many people will get Covid after that little gathering. I certainly would not go near that. We're not even seeing DD who lives close because there are positive cases at her job.

I'm thinking about decorating for Christmas pretty soon. I usually don't want to do it at all, but right now having lights seems like a great idea. We'll be having it alone, I'm pretty sure.

I hope all of us have a nice and safe Thanksgiving.

We had a wonderful, fairly restful day. I was able to get a lot done while the roast cooked on top the stove. Later, after we ate I fixed a nice-sized plate up for the friend in Sandoval and took it over. I went in the morning and had to go in the evening anyway. I knew other neighbors would bring her food, but she seemed so ' taken ' with roast that I felt she would like to share it. She seems to think I'm an ok cook, so it was a very easy decision.

Will be okay today. I hope the sun will stay out, but it will only get to the upper 50's. Par for this time of yr. actually. We are fortunate not to have had snow which has happened. It was sort of lonely in one way, but then we are used to it since I've always ( the last few yrs. for sure ) worked all holidays and Dh who worked at Sears always had to work right up to the day -- so it was easier for us than most people. Nice to be able to feel such hope that we will get out from under this now with someone who truly cares.

Hope you all have a really good Friday.

Mary: Praying that all is well with mammo.

Jackie: You had asked for feedback on the Thanksgiving meal from Maggiano's. The meal was wonderful. It included a large portion of turkey (breast) with a delicious stuffing (all raved about it) and tasty gravy; large portion of sliced ham with mashed sweet potatoes; mashed white potatoes, caesar salad (2 containers), additional containers of stuffing and sweet potatoes; 2 containers of spaghetti with meatball (hard to divide 1 meatball between 4-5 people); 2 containers of 4 cheese ravioli; bread and butter; and 2 slices of pecan pumpkin cheese cake. I do think they are stingy when it comes to desserts because no matter how I try, I am unable to serve 5 people from 2 slices of cheesecake. Dessert is a family favorite and they want more than a bite plus the nuts are on the top. I did order a whole cheesecake at extra cost and it was expensive but again, it is a holiday splurge. As a bonus, they included 4 apple crostada which we have yet to eat. I sent home leftovers (including desserts) with my DD and DSIL and will most likely freeze some of what I have left since it will be multiple meals for us.

We ordered it to be "ready to eat" rather than having to "reheat to eat" which they offered for 2 days before Thanksgiving at a 10% off deal. I did not want to have to even heat up the oven or dirty a serving dish so this was better for me. It was truly the most relaxed Thanksgiving we have ever had. All I had to do was uncover the food, stir the gravy, provide serving spoons and forks, and add the dressing to the caesar salad. We laughed about how it used to take all day to prepare the meal which then took about 20-30 minutes to consume. So we ate in about the same time but the prep took far less than in the past. Even clean-up was a breeze with no pots and pans to clean. Just put lids back on the containers and refrigerate. As a family, we decided this would be our new tradition for Thanksgiving.

There was a slight mix-up with the cheesecake since I had ordered it in advance and it was not included when they went to pick-up the food. My DD had them check the original order and they did realize the error and corrected it. They might have been running short on these but that is why I ordered it in advance. DH said they were doing a landslide business for both in house eating and take out. Knowing how crowded they can be and even with pandemic restrictions, I am not ready to resume in restaurant eating.

Hope everyone had a pleasurable day.

Thanks Betrayal. I remembered the good food at the X-mas party yrs. ago now at Maggiano's. There was an upstairs room rented. Came with waiters and bar should someone want something on drink with their meal. I thoroughly enjoyed it all so much. Really the Thanksgiving meal they provided sounded fairly elaborate if a little shy on a couple of the go a-long's. You are sooo right about dessert. The holidays would be nearly boring w/o something delicious to the point of near sin. Good thinking -- and glad the error was rectified.

We have leftovers of our roast because I also make sure to have. So much you can do with it. You can take cold roast and shred, add some onion, chopped sweet pickle, and mayo for a great sandwich. You can also make some hamburger patties, side of potatoes, gravy for the top, with a side salad, and just have an extra few meals w/o lots of prep in it.

Mary - I'm hoping your mammo went smoothly and your headache is gone. Prayers.

Foods all sound delicious. Thanksgiving cooking at home was always so much work! Ex husband many many moons ago would go deer hunting, while I slaved away. Don't miss those days.

GF went out for dinner, sent pictures where you could see people spaced far from each other. 400 dinners were "to go" and sold out.

Everyone have a pleasant weekend.
