I harvested peppers, cherry tomatoes, eggplant, three huge zucchini, pomegranates, and roselle hibiscus.
I harvested and set to dry peppermint and lemon verbena.
I cut roses and zinnias from the garden to enjoy inside.
I only planned to buy a little at the grocery store, but I made allowances to buy some macaroni noodles that were on an unadvertised sale. Pasta sales have been far and few between and I have been making pasta dishes less and less often.
I received a text the day before Thanksgiving asking if I wanted a turkey. It was a fresh turkey and the woman, who runs a gleaning group, had several that she was giving out. I said yes and cooked it along with the turkey I was cooking from our freezer from last year. She also had some small individual bags of chips and my children’s favorite trail mix when I got there and said I could take some of those too. I decided to keep the trail mix to put in Christmas stockings and the chips to add in boxes with other gifts for the children.
I made a chocolate cream pie using a cookie crust I had purchased months ago on clearance.
I showed my teenaged son how to sew a button back on. Though he had done it before, it had been years, and he asked for a refresher.
The only Black Friday shopping I did was a couple of orders online. I was able to spend time working in my garden Friday and Saturday.
