Thanksgiving is done for this year

We had our family Thanksgiving today as we usually do. And as always I fix too much food so we have leftovers for a few days. I don't mind really as it keeps me from having to cook for a couple days. I roasted a 20 lb turkey and most of that was eaten. Then had prolly 10 lb ham, well the butt off a country ham cooked in pineapple, coke and brown sugar. I will be eating ham sandwiches for several days and still freeze a lot. All the kids were here which is what its all about. We have to get up early tomorrow so I can take Rob and Amoy to catch their flight to Nevada. Then it will be time for me to hibernate for a couple weeks. Then the guys have black powder deer hunting and around Christmas we will butcher the hog. After that I am done for the year. No one will see me till spring. I really wont have any reason to go anywhere. I hope.
The weather has been pretty nice here this week, all be it cool. We are supposed to have rain starting on Tuesday this week. I don't like cold and rain combined. Sure makes the body hurt a lot. As if being on my feet cooking for deer hunters, standing butchering chickens and then doing Thanksgiving dinner didn't help. I think I need a message or a hot tub.
So till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.
