Saturday Upside: Thinking Outside the Box

I didn't really have anything this week that was on the downside except for having vertigo when I woke up Tuesday morning. I still have it but it's not all the time, mostly first thing in the morning and anytime I either bend over too fast or tip my head back, as in rinsing my hair in the shower. I sincerely do not want to make a trip to the doctor (read: no antibiotics!) so I'm going to live with it and see if it will just go away on its own. The upside is that I have to just slow down a little.
 
So, we have some friends that we get together with a couple times a year to go out for dinner. I decided I wanted to have them over instead of going out because I wanted to make a turkey dinner with all the trimmings.  We usually are somewhere else for T-day and I feel cheated out of all the leftovers.
 
The turkey is in the oven and me and Marie Collander baked a Razzle Dazzle pie this morning. The eggs are boiled and ready to be deviled and the fruit salad is chillin'. I don't know why I don't do this more often. I think it's because sometimes I have a hard time thinking outside the box.  But not today! 
 
Gotta go peel taters and make some gravy.
 
Hope wherever you are that you are having an upside kind a day!
