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


Click for a complete Costco News


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~!
