Patching servers, updating some network devices, a bunch of fixes I can only do in down/off times, update documentation, 2022 budget, some tasks for my disaster recovery site refresh, and Christmas bonus (end of year orders) for my CDW and Cisco reps.
We are in our second year of closing for holidays. It's wonderful to be able to get things done at home while family is round vs some of this stuff usually done between 11 PM - 5 AM. Meanwhile my family's doing amazing stuff with food.
I'm very relieved we (IT) delivered 100% uptime and not a single hiccup for our precious staff and customers for this holiday rush. Staff and customers are all pretty stressed these days so hoping all this stuff aids the increased work loads and business we have in December.
I expected to see turkey turkey turkey, but I’m relieved to find that we’re not the only ones doing something off the beaten path.
We went to the Keys for Thanksgiving a few times in the not-so-distant past - we’re home this year but cooking keys food to pretend we’re there lol.
Gonna fry conch and shrimp, and some conch fritters. Maybe a few hushpuppies too. Broccoli slaw is done and marrying in the fridge. Key Lime Pie for dessert.
Happy Thanksgiving y’all
Turkey, stuffing, ham, cabbage stew, smashed potatoes, lentils, yams/sweet potatoes, bread rolls/biscuits, cucumber salad etc.We are taking it light. Just me, mom and my sister.
Mom wanted to host but she’s really getting too old and frail to cook. She’s fussy about her unused kitchen being perfectly clean.
I said”mom I’ll take you to Sam’s club. They have nice home ready made dinners that you simply slide into the oven. We’ll pick one out. My treat.
We settled on a pan of chicken Alfredo over ziti that could feed 10 and a large spinach salad covered in walnuts and blueberries. We have nice croissants and a pumpkin pie.
Mom was able to get head head around that. She’s not worried now. Drama!
What cha eating?
