Happy Thursday, friends! Hope you're having a great week! I finished this book yesterday. It was another one that I got from Carole's recommendations at From My Carolina Home. I enjoyed the story, but got a little frustrated with the main character towards the last few chapters. Don't worry, though, it all ended well!

I Like Thursday #365
This week's air fryer experiment was egg rolls! Yum! We used this recipe, but tweaked it a little bit. I didn't have any oyster sauce or Sriracha, but used all the rest of the ingredients. We also had to lower the temperature and time we cooked them at. Apparently, my air fryer cooks hotter than some, and 400 degrees for 6 minutes (plus you were supposed to flip them and cook 6 more minutes) really over-browned the first batch. But we adjusted the time and temp, and figured out how to get them the way we liked.
Mike and I felt like getting out of the house for a walk in a different part of town yesterday afternoon because it was a really beautiful day. After walking a couple miles on our bike/hiking trail, we went hunting for a herd of elk that were supposed to be hanging out around town. We found them on the golf course!
Here's the view. It was a gorgeous day!
And Mike got a close-up of all the elk.
There's still snow on the ground, so no golfers, but the elk are enjoying their party!
Speaking of parties, the staff at my mom's place had a tree trimming party last night for residents and their families, and it was really nice. We worked on a tree in the hallway near Mom's apartment, with the help of a nice young man, the 8 year-old son of one of the staff members.
My most favorite holiday party of the year is always the one my quilt group has, and it's coming up next Thursday, Dec. 14th. We each bring a gift to put into the gift exchange, and then we have a blast choosing, opening, and/or stealing gifts from each other! Last year I came home with a gift certificate to our LQS, and a (now) very favorite mug!
