After spending much of the afternoon with Netflix, I'm having assorted leftovers for an early supper.

No break in the dreariness. At least it's not snow.

Howdy Y'all! We deheathenated and had brunch. 'Twas a very nice service. We sang one of my favorite hymns for Advent, Lo! He Comes With Clouds Descending. The link has the words along with the music just in case anyone feels the need to sing along. Brunch was teh nummy! Lots and lots of foodstuffs and a great variety. Advent Lessons and Carols shall get underway shortly. Obviously, we are not there. Both of us came down with a case of JUST CAN'T, so we are unable to leave da cave.

Afternoon all. Back in Casa Rat safe and sound, went from rainy and 30's F to Sunny and 50's in about 6.5 hours (would have been faster except for the obligatory Nashville traffic jam). Letting the house warm up (turned the thermostat down to 63F while I was gone, no reason to heat it much more than that while I'm gone).

Had a nice Thanksgiving visit, outside of having to listen to Rush Limbaugh all Thursday morning (my brother and Sis-in-law are rather conservative) there was no strain on family ties. The two Bassets and the English Mastiff were also glad to see me, as I give out copious skritches. Took the family out to the Cheesecake Factory on Firday (glad I only do that twice a year, it was...costly...) after enjoying a great T-day Turkey.

Have read about 1/2 of the e-mails I missed, so will take a look later this evening but probably just start again on Moanday's MMP.

I also renewed my Straight Dope board membership for another year.

All y'all have a great evening and I'll see you come Moanday.

Company has left, it was a lot of fun, but honestly how do you people who entertain do it?
I am exhausted.

Friend from park didn't show up. She works at a pet store, went to the store to give her a dog a bath and found the store closed. The opening person didn't show up and she stayed there to work.

We have decided that we are going to do Friendsgiving every year and I will be hosting it.
I think I can do this once a year, but I need to get a bigger table and more chairs, as there are a few more friends we want to come.

I'm logged in to irk already. Tomorrow we can fold up the table and take it back upstairs. I have a ton of laundry to do too.

I wanted leftover baked ziti for my supper. It mysteriously disappeared. I napped for an hour. The Big Wrek must've came through hungry. He's savoring his last week of deer camp.
I'm watching TCM Christmas type movies. Kinda depresses me.
Think I'll make an omelet for my supper.
Have a good Sunday all.

swampie,. I see that we have both jeopardized our souls by participating in the Death Pool. Did you ever think I might be the devil in disguise?

swampy, I vaguely remember playing that hymn at a Methodist church when I belonged to the musician's union up north as an organist. I worked Protestant, RC and Orthodox churches without discrimination.

Took Nelson to the dog park for a romp with his buddy Watson. While we were there, the temp dropped ~15F and the wind kicked up until we were all too cold (we came dressed for 60F sunny weather) to stay longer. Groceries have been purchased and put away and supper is house special soup and shrimp toast from the cheap Chinese place down the street.

See y'all tomorrow.

I saw a play today that was very emotionally intense. I loved it!

It's supposed to be snowy again here in Toronto tomorrow, though today there was also freezing rain.

Did more laundry, had phone conversations with both chilluns, one sister, and brother. Went to neighbors to see her adorable one-year-old grandson.

Amazon says USPS tried to deliver package again at 6:07 PM today. Gates to complex close and lock at 6:00 PM. Who the heck delivers packages after 6 PM on a Sunday night? And there's nobody to ask or complain to.
