Currently Watching: When the Bough Breaks (1994)

Oof. I do not normally overindulge during holiday meals but did this year. Thanksgiving day was a busy one. I was on my feet for most of the hours between ten Am and ten Pm cooking, cleaning and finally mopping up the whole house up after putting away the leftovers and washing dishes. Made the "traditional" dishes including a twenty three pound bird stuffed with apples, onions, fresh sage and other goodies. Garlic mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, green bean casserole, yam casserole, cranberry sauce, some deviled eggs that ended up egg salad instead, six freaking pumpkin pies with whipped cream...

It is always good to brush off the big cooking skills and remember that you can prepare a ridiculously large feast when needed. We've been going hard at the leftovers for three days and there is still more to eat. I'm going to end up putting on ten pounds by the end of the year if not careful. It was really good though; I'm going to have to toot my own horn for just a moment.

Drinking too much coffee and not hitting the treadmill enough over the last couple of weeks. Time to get back into a daily routine. As much as I hate the repetitiveness of it I appreciate the results.

Watching When the Bough Breaks from 1994. Always liked this thriller. It has a bit of that made-for-TV feel though the story itself is rather dark. Of course the fact that the entire film centers around my birthday always made it more fun. Ally Walker, Martin Sheen and Ron Perlman star in a strange murder mystery about the discovery of a discarded collection of children's hands numbered 1-12. With no bodies and nothing else to work other than an autistic mute child who lives in a institution and seems to be related to the crimes somehow through a psychic connection, a detective and special investigator try to solve the case before more hands turn up.

Feeling a little tired so may just chill the rest of the night and binge crime shows, fiction and not. See what kind of trouble I can get into tomorrow after a little relaxation. Sweet & Wicked Dreams 🖤
