So what is everyone cooking?
We're not cooking. We are guests. But we will help out as much as me can.
We're guesting as well.
I got to feed the granddaughter! I didn't prepare the bottle but I got to hold her and feed her I think three times.
I just saw the photos on FB! She is SO beautiful!
Aww, she's a beauty. So nice of you to share pics. How was the drive to Ephrata? (I know it can be hair-raising this time of year). I have some sinus thing going on so we stayed home and I fixed a small turkey, etc. Our family always watches Planes, Trains and Automobiles on Thanksgiving day, we just finished that.Happy Thanksgiving to my blog friends here on TCKT. I'm grateful to know you all.
Awww, sorry you're sick florrie. I despise those sinus things...they linger on and on. Every breath smells like old dirty socks. Yuck! Hope you're feeling better very soon!
It was a cold drive but pretty clear. Some snow on the ground but the roads were clear.Hope you feel better soon, Florrie!
Thanks for the good wishes, Matt & lady red, it's no biggie, just one of those things that has to run its course.You and Fay have a safe trip home.
hey flo - here's some unsolicited medical advice from me, an NRAMD*:Flonase and Nasacort are now available over the counter. Take them with Afrin. As often as you need. For as long as you need.Usually it's advised to not take Afrin for too long, or you get a "rebound effect" where the sinuses get inflamed (and you get horribly stuffed) after the Afrin is discontinued. But if you take the Nasacort at the same time, you get no rebound effect.* Not Really A Medical Doctor. However, a real MD (ENT surgeon, in fact) gave me this advice.
Thank you, lewy, I really appreciate that advice.
But wait, there's more!™Get some sinus rinse: like this. The big spray can. Goal is to keep the nasal passages and sinus a) clear and b) moist so oxygen and the immune system can do its work.
Thanks, lewy! I appreciate it. That sounds like a very good, non-medicated option. I already have (and have used) nasal spray. Like you mentioned before, I know I have to be careful with it or it starts doing the opposite and I wind up more congested than ever. I think today was hump day, usually stays with me a couple weeks and this is day 11.
Great to have the link, they sell it at several of my local stores, thx again! Sounds like a it would really help, especially this dry time of year and it's not scary like a neti pot (eeeeeeek!!) and non-medicated. Win, win.
lady red, I LMAO at the "Gifts They'll Only Use Once"!!! TThe falcon names, "Better Greg" and the racist printer, haahaahahahahahaaahaa!
I know! I was laughing so hard!!!
Thanksgiving is not a holiday here but we're very much aware of it and all us locals wish our American friends Happy Thanksgiving. So... Happy Thanksgiving! ;-)Lone soldiers, those who emigrate on their own and leave their families behind in the US or elsewhere, enjoyed a Thanksgiving meal organized by a former lone soldier. I think that's such a nice idea! imgw:"http://i2.wp.com/www.jewishpress.com/wp-content/uploads/IDF-TG.jpg" As for me, since it's Friday night I'm cooking chicken! (Well, consider it a miniature turkey :)) )
What a nice gesture, annie, happy Thanksgiving to you and enjoy your mini-turkey :-)
I'm watching Saints and Strangers on National Geographic. It's... harrowing...
I would have liked to have seen that. Unfortunately, Comcast only offers pt. 2. I can't watch unless it's start to finish...
