Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday

November 29, 2016

Thanksgiving report:

  • Drove four hours
  • Enjoyed Thanksgiving with my family
  • Drove four hours
  • Gave thanks for all of it, even though I hate that drive with a passion.

The highlight of the drive is the 4.2 miles I get to drive on Route 66.riverton-store-rsr-mark

No two of my family’s Thanksgiving gatherings have been alike.  I gave thanks for that, too.  Each one is precious and memorable, whether it is a large scale extended family gathering, or like this year–just us kids and Mom.  I took Lasagne Soup, to be heated in my horrible slow cooker.  I told my mom how much I despise my slow cooker, because it has four different heat setting buttons; but all of them are too hot.  There is no going off and leaving it several hours to ‘slow’ cook.  There is no ‘slow’ cooking with it.  But as I told Mom, I don’t use a slow cooker enough to justify buying a new one.

On my drive home, I saw this totally awesome motorized bicycle, that appeared to be on its own Route 66 journey.  route-66-bike-rsr-mark

Shopping report:

On Black Friday, I bought a Kindle Fire Tablet for the young girl I adopted for Christmas.  All I was given was her first name and age (14), and that she asked for “clothes, shoes, electronics or a mall gift card”.  No indication of shoe or clothing sizes, and no clue about what kind of electronic thing she wanted.  Thus the Kindle tablet, that can be used for fun and education, i.e., homework and checking out textbooks and library books.

On Cyber Monday, I bought myself an Instant Pot.  Woohoo!  So much for the frugal me who only four days earlier said I couldn’t justify spending for a new slow cooker.  So anyway, the Instant Pot will be here in two days.  Stay tuned for Instant Pot adventures.instant-pot

And coming back to the reason for my favorite holiday of the year.
