Day Of Rest

After another restful night in The Trailer Southern Man packed the gym bag and headed into town to work out and shower and shave and such, then went to Sunday School, where we had an especially good class. Then he picked up Teen Daughter from her church and met Southern Parents and Southern Son for lunch at a local BBQ place. Southern Man got a huge sampler with the intention of nibbling on the leftovers for the rest of the day.

Even though he's been back for two days Southern Man has hardly had any time at all at his place and Sunday is supposed to be a day of rest and relaxation and reflection, so that's just what Southern Man did - after lunch he kissed his daughter and hugged his son and headed back out to The Land for an afternoon alone, which he spent in rest and relaxation and reflection. And perhaps video games and movies. There might have been popcorn and beer to go along with the leftover BBQ. Southern Man is a fairly reserved fellow and needs that alone time to recharge, and that's just what he got today. It was good. Tomorrow kicks off two days of work, and then Thanksgiving holiday!

What does Thanksgiving Holiday entail for Southern Man? Does it include hunting? Will you (or they) make the rounds visiting extended family? OR because you were gone last week, are you grading papers/projects for the next week? LOL Are YOU preparing a feast for your kids or are they fixing the food for you? Do you have running water yet? If not, how the toilet thing workout with southern teen? YES...I have lots of questions to ask of everyone, and I am not even a 2 year old!

The family gathering is at the nearby Ancestral Manor this year, so no traveling or cooking for me! Often we end up in east Texas where Dad's brothers live. There are no hunters in the family; fortunately, other friends do hunt and keep me well provided with roast duck and deer chili and such. No running water; if teen daughter spends the night out there this weekend I'll just keep the toilet tank filled with lake water. It's more likely that I'll just bunk with my parents this weekend while she's in town. My mom turned my old bedroom into an office about two days after I left for grad school but there's a day bed in there...
