I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving, full of amazingly wonderful memories. I also hope everyone made it through Black Friday with all of the items they were after now tucked away securely for Christmas morning. My slow cooker turkey breast turned out well, though a bit dry because I forgot to throw part of an apple in there to help keep it moist. It was still delicious, and my Thanksgiving turkey quota was met.
My Black Friday outing was also successful and went off without a hitch. I was actually really surprised how quickly I was able to grab the items I was after, check out, and load the Jeep. My longest line wait time was waiting for the sale to start. I actually was capable of walking straight up to a register to check out, no line. I have to admit I felt a little charmed by this. Just a couple more things to grab between now and Christmas and my present purchases are complete. YAY!!
I’m heading out with a friend of mine for a hike today. We are meeting at the Tiger Mountain Trail South trailhead a few hours from now. I’m so excited. The hike is 4 miles, roundtrip, and has a 600 foot gain. A quick, fairly moderate hike. I’ve never hiked around on Tiger Mountain. This and the fact that I am going hiking with a friend of mine, which means I won’t be hiking alone, has me super, super excited about this hike. I have to remember to grab my camera and make sure that I have fresh batteries in it.
It has been really cold for days! Its in the low 20’s, again, this morning. We had to buy a small heater yesterday to help supplement our propane heater because we couldn’t get the temperature above 60 degrees in the trailer. The night before yesterday, the temperature in the trailer topped out around 58 degrees. Since we set up the new heater, we have been able to get the temp up in the trailer to the much more comfortable level of 70, which, in the trailer, is almost too warm. Another upside is that we don’t have to run both heaters for too long before we can achieve the desired temp, then we can shut one of them off for a while. Success!
Well, I should probably go start getting myself put together for the hike. Have a great day, Everyone!!!
