Hoping for a short day at the office today. Am saving my vaca time for my trip to Africa in March. The fashionista is at home waiting for a friend to call about going to see Twilight this afternoon. Then we have some errands to run before the holiday tomorrow.
I bought the fashionista the first Twilight book back in September and she never got around to reading it. She and the boyfriend had a disagreement last week, so she was home all weekend. Started the first book Friday evening and finished it in the wee hours of the morning Saturday. Bought the second book Saturday afternoon and read it in nearly one sitting (we are fast readers in my family). I drove her to a friend’s Sunday afternoon to borrow books 3 and 4. She finished 4 last night. Whew!
Took the fashionista and the boyfriend out to our favorite Mexican restaurant last night. They are still working things out — so it made for an interesting dinner. I will not do that again….. But the food was good even if the company left something to be desired.
For turkey day tomorrow, I am having the family over. My part of the dinner is the turkey, stuffing, gravy, corn, cranberry sauce, and beverages — wine spritzers, tea, coffee. The rest of the family brings salad, pies, potatoes, rolls. It will be a nice time to stay in and eat and chat and have family time. I am looking forward to it.
The fashionista informed me that she wants me to take her out on Black Friday this year. I am not terribly thrilled. Apparently a few gifts she wants to purchase will be half price — she said I need to set my alarm for 3:30 a.m. Yeah, right….
I did get the boxes of Christmas decorations out last weekend and did a quick inventory. They are sitting in the basement family room. Will probably get the decorations up on Friday or Saturday — depends on how much shopping I get talked into on Friday.
It is funny. I do love Thanksgiving dinner, but my favorite part of Thanksgiving is leftover turkey sandwiches and making turkey and noodles to eat over mashed potatoes.
With a four day weekend, I really am hoping to get the little Felix cardigan done for baby Micah and work on the pink shrug for baby Kylee. These items should have been finished several weeks ago. Bad, bad, lazy me. And I got an email from a local yarn store which is having an after Thanksgiving sale. I am going to try to stay away. My laziness in knitting lately should not be rewarded with new yarn. We’ll see if that little mantra works or not. Ha ha.
Have a great turkey day!
