My Little Gift For You To Warm You Up
That's a pecan pie, a chocolate pecan pie and apple thingies that Jessie made with the extra pastry dough and some apples they brought with them. Not a good picture but I believe they will be good pies.
It's been a full day. Giblets are cooked and cut up, the broth is saved for stuffing and gravy. A small turkey has been smoked. Cranberry sauce made (not to be confused with the cranberry relish I made last week) and angel biscuit dough has also been made. Eggs have been boiled. The cornbread for the cornbread stuffing has been made. And the plants have been brought in. It's supposed to get down to 29 tonight or something.
Gibson is asleep at the moment, Jessie and Vergil are in town and Owen is eating some noodles and watching TV with his Boppy. Owen keeps saying, "Don't fall asleep, Boppy!" Good luck with that one, son.
We may actually go out tonight to see the ex- and a dear old friend play music together at a pizza joint. We'll see when Jason gets here to collect these boys. I have been tireder in my life but tomorrow's going to be another full day. But I did not get my music fix last night and you know how that goes.
I did watch a video I posted a little over a year ago and it brought me great joy. I think I'll make it a seasonal tradition.
So. For your pleasure and entertainment, let me give you Muddy Waters and The Rolling Stones back a long time ago playing, "Baby Please Don't Go."
As I said when I posted it the first time, it's long and you probably won't watch it. That's okay. I've watched it enough for all of us.
