My Day After Thanksgiving Lazy Fest

I had plans today to do nothing. Nada. Not a darn thing.

Well, I was going to read my issue of Folk Magazine that I had been saving for my annual day after Thanksgiving lazy fest.

And maybe start to plan some holiday decorating.

Am I alone in the fact that I just can’t plan out my holiday decor months ahead of time? For me it’s a slow, enjoyable process where I can casually reminisce about each item as I gently unwrap it from its cocoon and decide where I will place it this year.

Heck, I don’t even remember having half the stuff until I pull it out each year.

While jumping out of bed this morning to cheerfully start my day of rest and relaxation, I was greeted by no less than 7 spots of dog barf and an equal number of dog runny poo spots on my carpet, spanning from one end of the house to the other. Great.

It appears that Sheba has been snacking on the new dog’s food and it isn’t sitting well with her tummy. Either that or my turkey didn’t sit well with her tummy. Come to think of it, maybe it was the latter.

So by the time I was done cleaning up those messes, it sort of got my day off to a rough start.

I may have to make Saturday my day after the day after Thanksgiving lazy fest.

BTW, I purchased the Folk Magazine, vintage Shiny Brites and angel wings at Urban Farmhouse’s holiday open house that I attended last weekend. I’ll have lots and lots of photos from their store over the next week. Hopefully, we can all get some vintage Christmas inspiration from them.

Also BTW, my turkey came out wonderfully in my roaster oven. I may never use the real oven again for holidays!

    I bet your turkey was extra juicy with that roaster! Glad it turned out so well! I am having the lazies today. I actually had a couple of the grandkids spend the night. I felt like I was in a carb fog all day from the previous day of eating. Tonight I get some of the holiday lights out and see what works and what doesn’t. Going to take advantage of the decent weather before it turns ugly. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and GO BUCKS!~Hugs, Patti

    Glad your turkey came out well! I may have to get one of those roasters! So sorry your baby had tummy troubles- Doofus had some problems and did it in my bathroom- found it first thing this morning.
    I am the unplanned, take it out and stick it somewhere kind of girl. Works better for me that way. The only thing we plan is where the tree is going to be…

    Let me know about that magazine. It looks great. A tip from the vet: Never give turkey to your dogs. I did that one year and they ended up in the hospital horribly sick. He said it happens every single year, because people think it’s okay to give turkey to them. But it actually tends to make them sick. FYI.

    I hope your doggie is better. I know he is older but watch for Parvo. If he continues to be sick get him to a vet. Also pumpkin will help settle his stomach. He is a boy, right.
    Not pie though, hah.
    You have my permission to be lazy tomorrow.
    Love your new banner.

    Oh, geez! Poor you! Here you are, ready for your ‘cheerful’ day and you are greeted with that. Been there, done that. (I used to have that with my dog when he got old.) I like the new stuff you got though! Just make believe that Saturday is your “lazy day” and relax. (Put newspaper all over your house before you got to bed in case there’s another “incident!”) And I’m glad the turkey was so great in the Roaster — maybe I will get one too one day! Enjoy your Saturday.
    P.S. I laughed at the “commenter” above me: Tete is a “take it out and stick it somewhere kind of girl” LOL! Me too!!

    Hope your pups tummy trouble disappears. I like your magazine. May it give you inspiration. We need a little Christmas now. I love Vintage. Something about it just makes the holiday a little more special.

    Glad the turkey turned out great, email with details, if you don’t mind. I have a roaster, but have never cooked a turkey in it. I’m sorry that you dog was sick, that’s never a good thing. I hope today was better!

    Poor doggie, poor you! It also takes me some time to decorate. I decorate 12 trees (1 large tree, 11 theme trees) and I spend so much time placing each ornament in “just the right” spot- it drives my family crazy! Decorating is a process for me, too.
