A Smaller Thanksgiving!

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.

Today’s Subject…A Smaller Thanksgiving….

 

Yesterday Mary, her brother Norman and I drove 92 miles in her Prius to her youngest daughter’s home for Thanksgiving in Davis, California..

 

The family crowd this year was smaller than usual. Missing were her oldest son and his family (4), her oldest daughter and family (4) and Mary’s grandson Owen aged 15, who was in Greece with his other Grandmother.

 

Since the crowd was smaller, a smaller turkey was cooked butterfly style to reduce cooking time. It was still very tasty…

Another thing getting smaller is myself. I’ve not yet mentioned it in my blogs, but I’m in the process of losing some weight. I’ve put myself on what I’m calling a modified Atkins Diet…restricting myself to under 25 grams of carbohydrates a day and have lost 20 pounds since Labor day. Yesterday being Thanksgiving I set a goal of not exceeding 50 grams of carbs. You can see by my plate I used a teaspoon to portion out the trimmings. Hopefully, I kept the day’s intake to under 100 grams of carbs… 🙂 …dsc04673

 

I’ll be keeping on my restricted eating habits as I’ve got more weight to lose. More on that topic as time goes by.

 

It was a very nice and enjoyable day, as I hope was yours.

Reno, Nevada – Day 4

Jim says:

Yesterday Mary visited the Nevada Museum of Art while I visited with my good friend Randy and read. Upon her return, we went to Costco and Wal-Mart to do some shopping.

The day before after visiting the National Automobile Museum, Randy and I walked along Virginia Street and I snapped this photo…

Mary wanted to return after dark to take pictures of the neon signs. I drove while she hung out of the Bronco’s passenger widow taking her photos. I managed to get the three photos…remember the proper technique for night photography is to use a tripod…not driving down a street at night…

Our visit to Reno is now over. My only previous visit here was stopping for one night on my way to California back in 1979. My only real impression is that it is a very small and older version of Las Vegas. I have no interest in gambling our variety shows as offered by these cities, so neither city holds much interest for me.

Today we will drive the motorhome to Davis, California so that Mary can pick up her car from her youngest daughter…then we’ll both continue our trip in separate vehicles to Mary’s home in Murphys, California.
