Andrew and Samuel wanted Cecelia to sleep over last night. they are close. I brought in the air mattress and aired it up. only used it once in camping this year. we put it on the living room floor. they had fun jumping on it until I made them stop. they finally settled down. a house full of kids is sorta noisy but I like to hear my grand kids playing and having fun.
I must be mellowing out. yesterday we took Andrew to his soccer game. he bumped the car door that was parked next to us. I looked at it and it wasn’t scratched or dented. we went in for his game. after the game I seen both my car doors had been keyed. big scratch about 4 foot long. I wasn’t really mad about it. my old car has over 200 thousand miles on it. it wont be worth anything when I am done with it. I did think that was pretty chicken shit of the guy or gal that did that. gutless wonder.
Andrew didn’t want to dance at the pow wow when we got back from soccer. I wasn’t all that surprised. he was all game getting his outfit ready. when they got to the bingo hall he didn’t want to dance. I don’t believe in forcing a kid to dance. it should be fun. my favorite dancers are the ones that look like they are enjoying it. well at least we got him ready. it will give us more time to add to his outfit.
we are planning on a nice family dinner for thanksgiving. we will have the usual turkey and dressing. we bought a smoked ham from the meat locker. it cost more but they taste better than those spiral ham things from the grocery store. I scored a buffalo roast (and some buffalo sausage from the tribe). we was gonna use the roast in our corn soup but will use deer meat instead. my brother in law gave us several bags of deer meat. maybe we will use the buffalo sausage in the wild rice. .
we will also have nenwezhek, indian tea, dried squash and kakasewabo. probably some of the sweet potatoes I grew and mashed potatoes with gravy. we will also have some of the blueberries we picked this year. we will use real pumpkin for pie.
I think I will save the two rabbits until I get a few more. we will cook the two squirrels joe and I got while hunting. kinda reminds me that little soldier creek wasn’t running. just a few pools of water here and there.
sounds like a lotta food. diet be damned I guess. we do watch what we eat. one day of feasting wont be bad. it is what most of the country will be doing. I had a friend that used to fast on that day. I always think about him. and others. I don’t understand how anyone can be hungry in this day and age. we have the technology to feed everyone in the world but there is no profit in it. I am grateful for what I have every day.
