It's Christmas Eve and I thankfully have the house to myself. I have spent most of my week with my Daughter. She has been on vacation all week and I started my vacation on Wednesday. We started with a trip to Piggly Wiggly in Siler City and to Compare Foods and I like Compare Foods. We did the shopping for the Annual New Years Day dinner. So we went in search of Pork Stomach (Hog Maws) then off to Walmart for Queenella Chitterlings(Hog intestines). If you have no idea what I am talking about visit YouTube. On Thursday we made a trip to Greensboro I needed to pick up a book on cd from the Library and then off to Harris Teeter, and several other stores. Once we arrived back at home I cooked a duck. It was the first time I have tried to cook one and I think it turned out great. Picture to follow. Another trip to Greensboro on Friday it was long and terrifying, traffic was awful and people everywhere and the constant feeling I was about to be run down by one of those damn triple or double decker baby strollers!!!!. I am not sure why people think just because they are pushing a baby stroller they have the automatic right of way. So today we enjoyed a nice quite afternoon and then my daughter left to spend the rest of the Christmas Holidays with her boyfriend and his family, my mother is off to spend tonight with her sister and her family and most of Christmas Day and I have the house to myself, well at least mostly the cats are still here and my daughters dog. At this time I am listening to a book on cd and blogging, my first in a very long time. No knitting or crocheting this week. Maybe later tonight. Happy Holidays.
