Good morning all. I hope all of you U.S. folks had a great Thanksgiving. Many may be having it today or tomorrow. It doesn't matter. We should be thankful each and every day for WHAT we have and WHO we have in our lives. I understand we are celebrating the 'first' gathering - but we can be thankful for our ancestors every day. Without my ancestors coming here and going through all they did (and surviving) I wouldn't be here. One little change could have made a difference on my existence.
Lots of leftovers here. I have a friend stopping by today for lunch and we will use some of those leftovers up. Then I will find new ways to remake them or maybe some will be frozen.
I watched Charlie Brown's Thanksgiving last evening!! I had pre-recorded it last weekend and I watched it for the first time in years! So sweet and such a good message behind it!
Debbie in KS I watched Michael West's - Gobble Gobble - You Tube video. That was cute!
No shopping going on here. I have no desire. It is amazing to see as I am watching the news this morning - that 'perhaps' people are actually listening a bit this year. It looks like the numbers of people at the stores is quit small compared to past years for Black Friday.
I have never been an on-line shopper - doubtful I will start this year. Most are getting goody baskets - things I make, can or special items from grocery. Other than that - money will be gifted. I have the littles all done - so teens will get some personal likes/goodies (treats and snacks) and $$.
I was talking to one of my nieces last night and she said she started my 'tradition' of goody baskets with her oldest and is giving just a couple things to younger (teen) children and then money.
I walk outside, and as soon as he hears me open the gate - he comes running to Mom!!
It is going to get cold this coming week - so planning on finishing up some needed to do items outside this weekend. It will be a good time for people in my area to finish up any outside decorations - because it is going to way chilly next week. (highs at freezing or below for a few days).
If you are so inclined to shop this weekend - please remember tomorrow is SHOP SMALL Saturday. Shop those small business instead of the big box stores. You can get such wonderful and different items. You may also be helping to put a meal on their table instead of getting some CEO richer! I doubt I go out tomorrow - but I do plan on stopping in a couple small businesses in the little burg up the road in the coming days. They look interesting and I may find something I 'can't live without'!
Small businesses have taken such a hit this year - please do what you can to help!
I do need to go to the feed store tomorrow and get stocked up for the remainder of the year. I am usually in and out in a few minutes. Got to keep my critters fed!
Seeing a bit of sunshine at the moment!! YAY - it has been a few days. That can sure change my attitude and mood.
Well gang, I am off for now. I will be back Sunday with the weekly wrap-up. Have a great weekend and stay safe if shopping. Eat up all those leftovers and stay frugal.
