The turkey was good!

The turkey was better than years past. This was our first Thanksgiving in the last 4 that we stayed home. Last year we did the Portland whirlwind tour to test drive spinning wheels. The year before that we spent in the Bay Area so it was nice to enjoy the relaxed pace of home. After a wonderful dinner I sugested a walk on the Seal Beach Pier to get some ocean air and walk off the meal.
The Christmas lights were already up and it was very quiet tonight. One of the first times I've walked the pier and didn't see someone surfing the North side.

We decided to hit the jacuzzi after we got home and before the home made pumpkin pie. All relaxed now and full of comfort food but I'm afraid we'll have turkey for a long time. I haven't had the appetite that I used to but that's ok. The 14.02 pound turkey was the smallest I could find and it'll probably yield 4 to 5 meals disguised at burritos and who knows what else in the next week or so.

Turkey day is behind us and "Black Friday " is in progress. Are you going to fight the crowds for the that super deal? We have a Mall that opens at Midnight in an attempt to steal the shoppers from the big places. I'm not even going to venture into the fray. If you do I wish you well.

Life is Good


  1. Only heading to the neighborhood Wal-Mart in a bit for some fresh milk, thence to the library for another audiobook and *maybe* to Half Price Books to sell another bagful of things I'm ready to be rid of; I don't know: HPB is awfully close to one of the malls.

    Definitely not doing the Black Friday thing. Mostly just hunkering down with my knitting. Am about 1/3 done with the scarf for 2BDH. (Yay for audiobooks!)

  2. Sounds like you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I think you're wise to avoid the Black Friday madness.

  3. Lovely photo. Thanks for sharing.

    I'm avoiding Black Friday entirely. I always do. Rumor has it that they actually expect you to spend money or some such thing.

    That was the best turkey I've had in a long time. I'm thankful for a sweet hubby who cooks the best turkey in the universe!

    I spent the last two years working holiday retail. I would rather be anywhere but at a store on Black Friday. We were all sick anyway, so it was a quiet day of reading, cable movies, and knitting. Lovely.
