While Friday was a much needed day off, we had storms blow through around 3 am. It blew all our furniture off the porch.
We were in the basement. George was slow to get there after I woke him up but finally came down to join me. We could hear the wind knocking things around. We were directly under the porch. Little Bits house was destroyed and we have to make another. We were lucky though! This tree took down our Internet wire. And Comcast has made it extremely difficult to report. I’m still unsure if we are in queue to be fixed! And cell phone coverage is not very strong! If you look you can see the wire. I will try again Monday to get a person.
So Saturday we tried to snooze some after the event but it was hard. We had to be in Sumner County at 11 and get showers and leave by 10. So really had little time to do much at home Saturday.
I did get a lot done Friday but it’s never enough. I did some filming for vlog as no one was here. Trying to capture “behind the scenes” at our house what it’s like getting ready for Christmas. And I made us a chicken dinner with green beans and butter beans, and also made creamed garlic potatoes with caramelized onions. It was good!
I got out all the presents for wrapping! And we tested stockings. I vacuumed the house and cleaned. Our dinner was great.
Then Saturday, We went to friends’ house in Gallatin on the lake! The winds from behind the front were kicking through and you could see white caps on the lake!
We met with friends at a beautiful reception for their daughter who is back in town from being out of the country for a few years. A lovely time! And then we went shopping to finish up what we needed to buy in Hendersonville. We also found a discount grocery we had not been to and found some deals and some new items.
And we also made decisions on the Christmas Eve meal. We plan to have Turkey and some favorite family salads and casseroles instead of our traditional prime rib. The prices of prime rib and the fact that there are too many varied ways people like it- (rare versus well done) – makes it a difficult dish to please everyone. Last year there was a line at the microwave to finish off their steak. Microwaved steaks sucks! And George is not going to fix it well done. So we will scrap that and do Turkey, knowing Mom is fixing a ham at her house for Aunt Martha and Uncle Ken while here. We figure they’ll want something other than that at our house! We almost had Italian night but the meal wasn’t coming together. When we decided on Turkey with holiday favorite casseroles and salads we were immediately satisfied that we were on the road to holiday success! It won’t be a Thanksgiving meal but a little different so we make it Christmas-y!
Little Bit has been getting some quality time in! Now that Fancy is gone. They didn’t get along too good.
So….. last night I went to bed at 7:15 or so! Just worn out and sleepy after our day and the previous scary sleepless night! I slept great! Now was up at 2:30 awake to start the day lol 😂! So I’ll get some things done and George will be irritated with me when I go to bed at 8 tonight!
Much to do today! Ironing, dishes, mop floor, wrap gifts, cut George’s hair. See if I can get a person at Comcast for Internet coverage! George is going to grocery for a few things. And I start the new location tomorrow so that should be interesting! Must make headway wrapping today!
I miss our Internet but at least I have cell phone so I can still blog. And lucky I had the video scheduled for 7:00 am live! It’s up!
