The first order of business today is saying thank you to Sausage Mechanic and his wife (my coworker) Linda for making a place at their bountiful Thankgiving table for me. Your family was warm and welcoming, the food was excellent, and I had a ball. I felt like I was where I was supposed to be. Thank you!
Second, while I wouldn't likely ever go shopping today, Black Friday, because crowds like that make me anxious and crabby, I have already spent $165. On my stove. My oven started working sporadically this spring and finally bit the dust in June. I never got it fixed because I didn't need it, but with Christmas right around the corner and the baking bug in my brain, it was time. I'm just thankful that it was only $165, thereby relieving me of having to decide whether or not to buy a new one. I tell ya, this home-ownership business is a racket.
And finally, pish-posh to all of you who say it's too early for Christmas, because I am putting up my decorations today. It's about 50 degrees outside which is perfect for cleaning and decorating the front porch. If I get done by early afternoon, I'm doing my tree, too. Shut it. My candy-cane dreams are fragile and I don't want them broken.
Have an awesome day! Eat turkey sammiches and have fun talking about your guests now that they're gone.
We're watching you.
