Didn't warm up much today. At least the wind has died down.
I made the pilgrimage down the mountain to the mailbox. Got one of my mom's care packages. It had a stuffed bear in it. I am not sure what that was about but she is 85 so there is no telling. She sends me dried fruit and peanuts, which is nice. She also sends me a lot of OTC medicine, sometimes there are surprises in that. This package had a bottle of pills for "excessive gas." That's nice, I guess.
I slept most of the day away.
Didn't get up until one in the afternoon but then I didn't finally go to sleep until about three in the morning . Just wasn't sleepy.
This afternoon I drove into town to buy another humidifier, but I had forgotten about the sales that start today. When I got to Walmart every single parking space was taken, people were being parked in big rows by sales associates in the field next to the store, and all the sidewalks were covered with cars. I felt lucky just to get out of the parking lot, so I didn't make any effort to go inside. Just about everybody in the county must have been there from the look of it.
I called my wife to tell her it was a no go and she said some big sale started at five, which was just about the time I pulled off the highway. Whatever was on sale, those folks can have it.
My kids are having a big Thanksgiving get together with their friends at my daughter's place. Since my daughter's boyfriend is a Chef this is a major event for him. We called them last night and they had already started cooking. I hope all goes well, because they spent a lot of money and effort getting this together. At our house, I made ham sandwiches with tater tots. We had planned to have a turkey breast in one of those little aluminum pans, but we both forgot to buy one. Ham sandwiches were fine though, we sat by the fire and watched QVC while we had our Thanksgiving sandwiches.
It being Thanksgiving , there isn't much more to tell. Nothing is open except the Walmart, there's no mail (what I got today was from earlier in the week), and generally it's just some quiet down time. I'm not complaining.
