Thanksgiving has come & gone. It was nice, unseasonably warm (but no complaints here), & I ate too much of my mother~in~law's delicious cooking. I wandered around my m.i.l.'s backyard, snapping pictures on my camera phone & came up with the 1 above ~ kinda diggin' it myself.

Skip & I have the morning basically off today...not opening the store until 1:00 (no, we're not like JC Penney's or Kohl's who opened at 4:00 am for Black Friday)...but we'll probably go in a little earlier in order to start decorating for....gasp...could it be?......Christmas & Hannukah! Garland & the like will be going up & the holiday toys & treats for the pets will be going out on the shelves today.

Speaking of the holidays, I haven't started any of my own shopping, nor have I decorated my own house yet, but I have started my Christmas cards & am about 1/3 of the way through. Planning on getting those babies out of my hands & into the hands of the postal service on December 1st.

That's all for now. Gotta go shower & get ready to do my part for Black Friday. Hope y'all had a great Thanksgiving! Don't forget to participate in my entry below called "One Word." Later........

Hi Aunt Nub, Happy Thanksgiving! You mean you weren't at your store at 4am giving away free gift certificates for Kitty Kaviar???

I survived Black Friday at Macy's- luckily I didn't have to start until 2:15pm so most of the madness was already over. The streets around the store were very crowded though!

Good for you, getting your Holiday cards done so early.

hugs to you, Grove/Alb.

wow, almost done with your cards? i bow to you, dear crafty one! i have yet to start deciding what i feel like making or even if i feel like bothering at all! isn't that terrible?!? i sincerely am toying with the idea of skipping cards altogether. sigh.

i do like that photo of the leaves, it's funky/cool. i have bought a couple of things for Beau, that's it, can only afford gifts for him this year. didn't dare go out on Black Friday, my nerves can't take it! :)
