LilyFestre Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House (1682* d) RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House 23 Nov 18

My family was just too worn out to do Thanksgiving yesterday so we decided to have our Thanksgiving meal today. Yesterday was spent doing minimal cooking, lots of lollygagging, playing, napping, making music and basically doing whatever we felt like. Turns out that was exactly what we all needed!
This year, we raised our own turkeys, potatoes and squash for our Thanksgiving. We also had a corn casserole, homemade cranberry sauce, my Mom's traditional German stuffing, homemade mashed potatoes, walnut crusted pumpkin pie and apple pie. Everything was of all was the company we shared. :)

An extra bonus? My blood sugars stayed in range the entire time! I am using a Freestyle Libre sensor these days which makes it so very easy to check blood sugar levels. I change the sensor every 10 days (soon to be 14 days) and can use a reader to scan my levels every 15 seconds if I want. I prefer this to sticking my fingertips 5 times a day and would recommend it to anyone!

I have several days off which makes this the longest holiday break I will get all year (although I do take 10+ consecutive days off during the summer). So far, I am enjoying it immensely. We will prepare the house for Christmas decorating (which means a good cleaning/scrub down) before actually doing any decorating. All Christmas gear will be brought down from the shed too as hunting season is about to be upon us....we try to limit outside time during deer season). In addition, I'm headed for a mammogram which I HATE but know is important to do. It's not painful for me but kicks up some cancer dust...ick.

I imagine I will be doing some cleaning in my sewing room over break as I rarely have the time or energy to do that.

Happy Thanksgiving Everybody.
(Great job on the fence Maggie!!)
