Thanksgiving Day Plan – Turkey!

I have a huge craving for home made turkey.

I will be home alone for the Thanksgiving weekend this year (as usual), and I have decided to bake a full bird alone. I will not buy “Turkey dinner to go” from restaurants. I want good stuff. My craving for fresh baked turkey is unbearable. I am going to really enjoy the meal.

I enjoy cooking, so I am looking forward.
And I will take that rest I need. ZZzz..

On Thanksgiving Day, I plan to set up my live video camera pointing at my kitchen (oven & counter). I’ll try, we’ll see… ūüôā

OK, I’m getting excited now.

Plan #1 – clean up my kitchen. Make room in the refrigerator.

more coming…

I’m still here – Just very busy (sorry)

Hi, I am still here.
I am doing good, but very busy.

I will talk to you soon, I promise.
I cannot believe Thanksgiving Day is less than 2 weeks away. Season is passing by too fast. I don’t have time to enjoy the feeling. It sucks.

It’s Sunday morning, I will make coffee and fix pancake breakfast. Then I’ll get back to work.

Please send positive energy to my way. I am so busy and tired. Those who pray, pray for me. I’ll be home alone for Thanksgiving this year.

I will keep in touch with fun stories soon.

Basil Seeds

I’ve been busy.¬† I am still busy.

I spent last weekend alone at my apartment (as usual).  I bought a small pot and basil seeds from Home Depot.  I decided to give it one more try.

My neighbor’s cat was keep looking at me as I was getting the pot ready.¬† She is my favorite cat.¬† So I stopped what I was doing and played with her for a while.¬†

Costco to Raise Membership Fee

NO~!!!!

### 

Costco Wholesale Corp. said it is raising membership fees for about 22 million customers, as the largest U.S. warehouse club operator seeks to offset rising costs.

The 10% increase in membership fees, going into effect next month, may help offset the disappointing operating margin the company showed in the latest quarter. Operating margin shrank to 2.7% from 2.9% amid double-digit increases in merchandise and overhead costs on a percentage basis.

John’s Note:

So, basically, if you are a regular member, your membership will be $55.00/year.  Executive membership will be $110.00/year.

I am keeping my membership.

Check this out.  Chocolates of the World are back.  I bought 5 jugs last year.  I still have one fresh jug left.  So, this time I bought 3 jugs.

I also bought 2 cans of Christmas Cookies (Belgian Cookies).¬† I wanted to buy 1 more can, but I don’t make enough money.

Other than that, everything else I bought was good (healthy) item.

Costco was packed with Christmas stuff.  We are in full swing now.

I went to Costco on my lunch time.¬† I didn’t have time for a hot dog.¬† Also, I try not to eat meat on weekdays.¬† I try to keep in shape.

As I was getting ready to leave Costco, I saw an old lady at the parking lot, trying to load her trunk with heavy items.¬† So, I stopped & got out from my car.¬† I said "Let me help you.¬† Pretty young thing like you…."¬† "I am 84", she said with laughter.¬† I loaded her trunk as we made small talk.¬† Soon after, I took her empty cart and told her to drive careful.

Little human interactions like this make me happy.

Chocolates of the world, dude~!
