I'm missing Thanksgiving: G-BOMBS

After four days of wonderful meals (Thursday + leftovers through Sunday) it's now beans and rice with mushrooms and onions on lots of greens. We had turkey, ham, dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberries, roasted squash, green bean casserole, deviled eggs, relishes,  pumpkin pie, apple pie, and beverages at our daughter and son in law's home, we got to bring a lot of it home, and with careful planning, we had some parts of it the rest of the week. But now the fun is over.

G-BOMBS  Greens, beans, onions, mushrooms, berries, seeds

So now it's time to cut back and get ready for the various Christmas time activities.  The OSUL retired librarians are meeting for lunch on Friday at the OSU Golf Club and I'm the hostess, then that evening we're going out with Ned and Rosalie.  On Sunday our church small group is getting together for lunch at the Zimmers after church.  On Wednesday, Conestoga (Friends of Ohio History Connection) are meeting for our Christmas dinner at a nice restaurant and we're bringing our friend Mary Frances as our guest. On Thursday the PDHC is having its annual Christmas dinner at the Amelita Mirolo Barn in Upper Arlington.  Our condo association will be having a roaming drop in at three decorated homes (I need to check the date for that one). Then things seem to quiet down.  This year Phil will be playing in the band at his church, so for the first time that I can remember, we won't have Christmas Eve dinner together, so the rest of us may go out to eat and then to church services at 9 p.m. at Lytham Rd. campus of Upper Arlington Lutheran Church. On Sunday, December 25, we're serving communion at church, then having dinner here, but I haven't planned the menu yet. No plans in place for New Year's Eve.  Probably in bed early and stay off the streets.
