I loved catching you over at Mike and Becky’s when I called to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving. It sounded like you guys were having a good time. The Hamby bunch had a very good time. We had both kids home along with their significant others and everyone helped prepare and clean-up. It actually gave me time to piece together Sally’s favorite sweater while the meal was cooking.
No pic of that today as I am once again foiled by my obsession that I must make things a size or two too large in order to fit me. (First sweater story below — second sweater I like, but didn’t intend to make it the cute “swing” sweater that it is.) I am pondering what to do. I believe I can pull off an attempt to take it in…with the sewing machine. The turkey, however, turned out mahvelous!
We all consumed to excess…and there was much excess leftover. We will be eating well for a good many days. Tina tells us that this is important as having excess on your table (during the Chinese New Year or at any celebration) portends surpluses in the coming year. We will have a big year. Especially if we keep eating like this!
Post dinner Ruby activated her hypnotism rays and forced Marie to feed her many treats. Then she and Max set the example for evening activities. We did our best to keep pace with them, but they are, after all, professionals.
Today — mother of the bride dress shopping. If it will fit me today, it will certainly fit me in February!
