Monday Mutterings

Hope those of you who celebrated Thanksgiving had a good one. And those of you who are celebrating Hanukkah continue to celebrate the Lights.
Mommy's turkey was good.  She had cornbread stuffing, which she had never made before, and gee, she only set off the smoke detector once (and broke her favorite cup running to the kitchen).  There was no fire or anything. Just too warm with the oven on that long, I think. So we spent the last hour or two of cooking with two windows open!
Yes, this is ours.  Looks burnt, doesn't it? Well, mommy took all the skin off of it, cause she doesn't like that part. So inside the skin it was yummy.
So were the sweet potatoes.
Mommy said the pan she had didn't fit in her oven right, and the oven door didn't close all the way, so that's why she set off the alarm. Uh-huh.
She isn't going to be home for part of today, has to run an errand. NOW who's out of toilet paper, Mommy? You??? Tee hee. That's the errand!
She wishes it was something more exciting than t.p., but that's all she can afford.  I hope she at least gets some coffee or something for herself. It's hard watching all the festivities when you can't do anything but get essentials.
This is the time of year when people go crazy spending money. And those who can't, well, it's kinda hard. If any of you can help us, we would appreciate it. But those of you who can't, that's okay.  Spend something on your loved ones and local shelters and charities, instead.  But please don't overspend. That only leads to unhappiness, not joy.
Mommy has a wish list.  But that's all it is.  It's the same list she has had for several years.  I know some of the rest of you know how that feels.
Well, anyway, I am going to snooze a bit and wait for mommy to come home. Have a safe and warm rest of the week. It's gonna start snowing here any time... and get colder!!

We don't think the turkey looks burned at all, and we're glad it still tasted good. Turkey leftovers are the BEST too!

Yum, that turkey looks good. Jan likes a brown-skinned turkey. Sounds like you had an exciting Thanksgiving. Jan says a friend of hers used to set off the smoke detector every time he toasted English muffins.

We understand about only essentials.

That turkey doesn’t look burnt to me. It looks wonderful. This year the peeps aren’t exchanging gifts cos we no have no money either so we can commiserate. Pop splurged on the chocolate turkey and thats it. Of course I’m gonna get something.
