Thanksgiving and Chanukah

Hi All
  It was the best week I’ve had in a while. Matt, Jen and Audrey came Wednesday night. We had Thanksgiving Lunch with Mom at Hooverwood!
Then I made Manacotti for dinner while Matt, Jen and Audrey went to visit Elsie. Friday Bobby and family came to visit. We had a family dinner at Hollyhock. Matt, Bobby, Elliott and Asher went to the Pacer game after dinner. I stayed with Rachel and Lilly. Jen and Audrey went to the hotel so Audrey could stay on her schedule and go to sleep. Saturday I worked 8:30 to 1:00. I made Chanukah dinner for everyone. Then we opened presents. After that Matt and family went to the hotel. Bobby and family watched me light the Chanukah candles, Bobby, Asher and I played Dreidel.  Sunday Bobby, family and I visited both Gram and Gram with naps in between. We also played with Chanukah presents and I played Shapes with Asher on my IPad. I sure miss everyone. They all went home Sunday.

New York City

We had a fairytale week….saw five shows (Steve saw an additional one, a matinee of King Kong) and loved each one, all different.  We arrived Monday and decided to add a show that night at last minute, the theatre was immediately across the street from our hotel Crown Plaza Times Square. So it was Chicago, Hamilton, My Fair Lady, Frozen and Once on This Island….all different, and enjoyable.  Highlight was probably Hamilton….thankfully, since it was $1600 for two tix!  Ate at good restaurants and generally took it easy, since we have seen all of the typical tourist things already.  We did repeat a trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  And added an afternoon at the New York Historical Society.  Thursday New York had the biggest snowstorm in 123 years!  over 6 inches of snow….  We walked to the theatre (Frozen that night - how ironic!) with umbrella’s so didn’t have any challenges.  We flew home on Saturday afternoon.  As much as I have come to love the Big Apple, I am happy to return home to quiet Sherwood Forest!  Now it’s time to think turkey….  and then Christmas!  Not yet sure when I will host CC, but I think it will be the second week of December!

Happy Thanksgiving

Before the days get busy with food prep and family ...Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! I certainly am thankful for my family, Conversation Club,and the many blessings in my life. Kevin and Jen will drive to Cincy and from there ride with Rachel, Zach and Calvin - arriving Wednesday night. Thursday we will get our morning exercise along with several thousand others doing the Drumstick Dash. Hopefully much of the food prep will be finished before Thursday so we can enjoy time with everyone Aunt Gloria will be joining us.
Friday - taking Calvin swimming in the downtown Y where the water temperature is 88 before heading to our Escape the Room activity, a late lunch at St. Joseph Brewery and home.
Saturday - everyone leaves except Calvin who asked if he could stay an extra 2 days. We will take him back on Monday and check the progress of our house…where we will celebrate Thanksgiving next year!
Looking forward to our next CC ...wondering how far Kate got on Rt 66, Carol’s trip home and to NY, Susan’s house plans, Carol Faye’s family and Barb’s happenings.
