Hugs Karen! I hope your SIL and family get answers.

I haven't been exercising as much the past few days as i should....struggling to find time to get everything done, and that includes exercise. it needs to be a higher priority. At least the next few days will be fairly quiet, so planning to walk a lot. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, all!

I spent most of the day trying to put things back in place after the carpet cleaning. That lead to cleaning out several closets, dusting etc. etc. I did take a 'break' to go to my Barre Sculpt class and am now contimplating a large glass of wine!

Coffee - thanks - airports were not too crowded yesterday so it was relatively easy. Exhausted when we got home as we were up at 5am Eastern time and we are on mountain time.

Ruth - gorgeous photo.

Yesterday was 70 - I think it broke a record. Not as hot today. A little cooler tomorrow then back to the 60s. We've broken a record for the latest snow fall - so far none this season in Denver. The mountains have gotten a little.

Planned to dust today but managed to avoid it. Maybe tomorrow - when you can see the dust on the dresser its time!

Thanksgiving is just 3 - DH, me and DS. Turkey, cranberries, yams, stuffing, pecan and pumpkin pie (my son wants both). I like green bean casserole, but it would just be me eating it so decided not to make. Already planning what I'll do with the leftover turkey. We will eat Friday night the same as Thanksgiving, then will make turkey soup, or split pea and barley soup with turkey (using the carcass), make turkey pie, and then not sure......It's a 12 1/2# bird.

Regarding SIL - its a totally new event. He has an ulcer and has had for years. The doctors have scoped him from both ends and there is no active bleeding. It's possible that the ulcer was bleeding but so far no answers. Finally today he is off the liquid diet. Talk of him being discharged tomorrow or Thursday. DD is worn out - stressed out. I texted her to ask her a question and she said she could not focus as she couldn't get her water bottle open and breaking it seemed like the easiest option.

Coffee - yup there is nothing like a mother's love. We never stop wanting our mother's even when they are no longer earthly.

Our weekly Wednesday Walking picture. Here's the reason we had 3 younger walkers today: One of our members has two daughters who live in Texas, and a third who lives in Australia. Because of Covid, they haven't been able to see her for almost 2 years. The sisters engineered a surprise for their parents and all showed up on their doorstep for Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to USians here (and Happy Thursday to all the rest!)

FINALLY some snow in the forecast. I have been down with a bad cold this week, but this morning I got up and did 7.200 meters on the rowing machine. Then after popovers for breakfast, DH and I wrestled our new-to-us smaller snowblower onto the back deck, where it will live under a tarp when not protecting us from deck collapse this winter. Then after another rest, since I have high hopes of doing the 10k out in Colorado in May, I did what I had to do and did a treadmill couch to 5k session. Balance not good enough to run off the treadmill, but I am still hopeful! Pretty tired now. I did not manage any mask sewing or housecleaning or baking of mini-pies. Ah well, another time! Tomorrow I have strength training at 5:30 (ugh!) then will be a stressful day at work due to so many people out. DH gets his booster tomorrow -- YAY!

Did 10,000 meters on the erg this morning, partly coached session, partly finishing off GBBO* for the year -- now what will I watch while exercising?

Today is supposed to be a couch to 5k day on treadmill, but I also need to do a ton of housecleaning. DH is feeling rather clobbered by his booster, so cooking and cleaning is on me today. I also need to make a whole lot of masks. I do 4 layer masks with two layers of silk in the middle. The silk has a natural electrostatic charge, which is what also makes N95 masks so effective. The silk is a pain in the behind to work with though, so they take a long time. My masks also have a nose wire. Again, more time. But I want to have a bunch for Christmas stockings, since it seems we will be wearing them for some time to come.

I had a bad cold this week -- negative COVID x 3. It means that somewhere along the way I let down my guard though. Ugh. We are all so sick of this!


* Had started watching the final last night while doing some drills on the erg

** speaking of baking... I also need to bake some sugar cookies with raspberry jam filling for someone at work who rescinded her planned vacation day on Friday because we were so short staffed. The trick will be not to eat too many myself!

Good luck with not eating the raspberry filled cookies. I would flunk that test for sure!

I went to PiYo and Pound this morning....trying to work off some gravy. I washed the floors and vacuumed (we had four dogs running in and out of the house the last two days) when I got home. Once all is in order, we will commense with the Christmas decorating.

SIL was discharged from hospital Thursday afternoon. He has a duodenal ulcer and that was the cause of the bleeding - nothing else found. He lost so much blood, so he needed 4 units of blood and he had 2 iron transfusions. It is so much easier for my daughter to have him recover at home than in the hospital. SIL slept most of the day today and is upset that he is so "white". Doctor told him it could take 2 weeks to get his coloring back. It will be a long recovery

Not ready to go back to work on Monday - had this past week off plus I took the Thursday before Thanksgiving - wondering if this is more and more of a sign that I should retire sooner than later. Haven't looked at anything from work since I left on Wednesday the week for TG, but will look at my calendar and emails tomorrow night.

Booked trip to visit DD#2 but it may not happen. Borders are closing for 2 weeks midnight Sunday night for 14 days. We don't leave for 3 weeks so there still is time to cancel. We took out trip insurance on flight and VRBO.

Lots of turkey leftover - it was small - 12# but even 6 dinners ( 3 people 2 nights) barely makes a dent in a turkey. DD#1 and I were talking about TG and counting back several years - the last real thanksgiving eaten at home was 2014. 2015 I was with DD#1, 2016 and 2017 I cooked but we took dinner to my late mother's apt, 2018 we TG on Wednesday and DH went to his mother then next day and 2019 we were cleaning out my late MIL's house. Last year was just the two of us so I only made a turkey leg and turkey wing. No wonder my turkey was so good this year! I brined it and the white meat was so moist. DS polished off the pecan pie tonight and I'm sure he'' finish the pumpkin pie tomorrow.

Holiday decorating is definitely exercise! We started yesterday & hope to be mostly finished today. I will take a break for my Barre Sculpt class later on this afternoon. I am curious (nervous) to see what Bruno thinks of a tree in the house!

Karen, glad SIL is home. It will be a long recovery. I'm glad you have insurance on your trip. What a mess the world is in right now! We must be heavier eaters than you guys because our 12 pound turkey & all the accompaniments were gone as of last night. In our defense, there was only one pie!

A bit late to this party. Just knackered. Had a lovely Thanksgiving and also a Zoom and IPAs party with a male friend that went on for 7.5 hours yesterday evening. The poor guy was seriously hurting by the time we signed off. Wee hours of the AM for him, and I could tell that he has been seriously busting it recently. Great fun.

A bit of eye candy is always good for the ego.

Only walking this holiday, a not insignificant accomplishment during this time of incessant rainfall. No raingear this morning!!! Just bucketing down later.

Grateful for leftovers of casseroled pheasant, potatoes, and the chard that I need to cook up. Had tomato soup and pumpkin custard earlier to round out the veggie intake.

Hopefully, my last Thanksgiving of nonstop work.... unless of course, I am very well paid. I need to investigate what happened with the files upload I did earlier today that doesn't appear to be complete Sick

Love the snow pix. I will be skiing Lookout Pass in Idaho/Montana in a couple of months or so. Can't wait. A new life with new adventures.
