Happy Turkey Day!

Happy Thanksgiving, y'all!

Our day starts around 10 a.m. when we go to Champions pub in Peabody, MA, where the whole town comes out for a drink. In past years, after Champions, we've gone to the local high school football game between the towns of Peabody and Saugus. But this year, with Tim 's knee healing from surgery, we'll skip sitting on cold, metal bleachers and go to Tim's mom's house around noon. Because some are sick and others live too far away, there will only be 17 of us around the table.

Sending love to Skip, Michele, Jimmy, Johnny, Mike, Sarah, Josh, Kate, Nick, and Victoria. And much love to Mom, Dad, the and the folks in Virginia and Atlanta, GA.

My food coma commences at 2 p.m., cyber shopping at 8 p.m., and the annual running of the mall shoppers starts at 5 a.m.!

Whether you're in the U.S. or not, what are your plans today?

Well, I wasted my morning on the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade - which has always been a Thanksgiving-morning ritual for me.

Right now I'm hanging up clothes in my closet and blogging.

Maybe the Christmas tree will go up later today, and maybe Christmas lights too...

Just got back from having T'day dinner with my folks. Got an email that Amazon.com is having a big Black Friday sale and they have incredible discounts on just about everything! Bought a new pair of shoes and a couple of DVDs and my entire bill was under $60.

Well, it's Friday here, but my Thursday and Friday went much the same as usual, ie work. And figure on not receiving any payments from customers in the US because they are all in a turkey coma, and the banks are shut there.
I'm just about down to the bottom of the pile that accumulated on my desk when I took a holiday a couple of weeks back.
On Sunday we are having family photos taken, which was a birthday present to me from a photographer friend. It's taken me three months to manage to organise the whole family to be together at once

Catherine, sounds like you have some great plans coming up. Good luck with the family photo!

Collin, I'm going to Amazon tonight (after the kids go to sleep). Can't beat free shipping!

I just can't buy any books for myself. :(

Maya, enjoy the weekend. We took our Christmas tree down, too. It just feels strange to put it up before December 1.
