Steak

Okay, inquiring minds want to know about the steak. Here is the history of steak and Mary on Thanksgiving. Last year after the turdbutt break up, I did not feel like going anywhere or being nice to people at their house. Don't get me wrong. I appreciated the invitations from my brother and Lucy, but I just did not want to be around people. In the past, I have fixed all the stuff for Thanksgiving dinner and did it very well. The only major item that was not done correctly was the cranberry in the can. Okay I admit to it that I am not fond of cranberries. So I decided to have steak last year. I enjoyed myself and relaxed. This year I am planning the same thing. I have a steak. (I miss KC just for the grocery stores. I bought the steak at Wal-Mart. I think that says enough about the quality of the grocery stores here. In KC I would walk up to the meat counter and pick my steak out from a butcher.) I will grill the steak using my grillpan, saute some mushrooms, make a salad, and have some wine. I will be thankful of my friends and my new job. Whether or not I have turkey, stuffing, etc. does not matter to me. Good thoughts matter to me. (I did receive an invite from a co-worker to go to his house with his wife, kids and in-laws. I know that I work in a great place.)

Everything knitting is going along. I hope to make some progress on the Christmas gift front. I also plan this weekend to go to Asheville, NC to shop and look. It is supposed to be a cool town. My mom is probably going to visit this next summer and I am thinking we will go there, because Biltmore Estate is there, which is the ancestoral home of the Vanderbilts. I think she will like a visit. Otherwise we are going tacky and doing Dollywood.

Oh on the work front, I do have a couple of projects. I think that I may be impressing my mentor with my determination on one piece of equipment. It is a little difficult. I know that I will have lots of work next week which is good. I also am helping another engineer to present data in a better format. (I do data massaging!!) I do like the fact that my 3rd week of work is only 3 days.

I pray that everyone has a safe and happy Thanksgiving. Remember to be thankful for at least one thing even if it is this wee blog.

that steak sounds tasty. I'd like to go to Dollywood; I really like her. She seems so sweet.

From what I hear, Dollywood is really fun.

My aunt and uncle do a steak tenderloin every year at Christmas, so don't think you are weird. I miss good steak. :(
