I've been posting Christmas ideas for awhile now. Our tree and holiday decorations will go up this weekend while college girl is home. But for just a little while, I want to take time out for Thanksgiving.
I am a blessed woman. If I start listing the things I have to be thankful for I wouldn't leave this keyboard for a long long time -I'd start with the obvious biggies of family and health and type on for hours as I documented all the precious little things that make up my daily life.
Today in particular, I'm grateful for a family willing to toss tradition and eat lasagna from Sam's so I don't have to cook and transport a full traditional holiday meal. And I'm grateful I found the nerve to suggest this instead of trudging through the work- resentful of HAVING to do something just because "I'm supposed to". And I'm particularly thankful that my "loves to cook" sister-in-law will be back from her beach vacation and ready to roll for Christmas Eve!
I hope all you Americans have an awesome, filling and fun Thanksgiving Day and the rest of you have a good day too, however you are spending it!
I really am taking off from the blog the next few days. I have posted everyday since I started this in late August (getting close to 100 posts) but I want to totally enjoy family time this week while everyone is home with me. Now I may get a wild hair and post something but my intention is to focus on the hubby and daughters.
But just so you remember to come back and see me... I have another Santa idea up my sleeve and I will be posting a tutorial for the Grinch sometime next week. So many of you begged and pleaded for help, I suspect that will be a big enough bribe to get you reading again after my hiatus.
Thanks to you all for reading my blather!
