~Happy Thanksgiving~

...a day late! *Smiles*

I hope that my American readers had a very blessed Thanksgiving. And for those reading from other countries, I hope you had a nice day as well. =)

It was just the two of us this year, but as I mentioned in my previous post, I still fixed all the trimmings. After all, leftovers are great to have! I won't have to cook any big meals for several days! LOL

We had a nice, relaxing day. I did spend a lot of time in the kitchen, but it was off and on. In the middle of my dinner preparations, the kitchen drain got clogged. Oh my! I had been doing SO WELL with the dishes, washing up after each dish I prepared. And then all of a sudden, the sink wouldn't drain. Ick. (It was the sweet potato peelings that finished clogging up the drain.) So I did have a nice little pile of dishes after all.

This morning, Kevin went and rented a snake and got the drain unclogged. The sink is draining just fine now! I'm so glad it was a simple fix.

Any Black Friday shoppers out there? I stayed in today. I do not like shopping that much anyhow, and then make it a crowded shopping experience, and I really dislike shopping! When it is so crowded, I can't concentrate on shopping, I'm just trying to maneuver around the crowds. So at 4 a.m. while people were lining up to get into Kohl's...I was sound asleep! *Grin*

However, a few years back, my husband, sisters and I did go out on Black Friday to do some shopping. The mall we went to was not crowded at all, and we had a great time shopping. At Gottschalks, I found a great gift at the jewelry counter, and went up to purchase it. There were two or three ladies behind the counter, doing nothing. Nobody was in line, or even near the jewelry counter. However, they wanted me to take a number. (At this point I was looking around for the hidden camera!!! Surely this was a joke?) I reluctantly stepped back and took a number. I had "99". The gal who had been "helping" me called out, "98...98". What'ya know? Nobody stepped forward! Then she called my number, and I walked back up to the counter. That wasn't my chance to be on a hidden camera show, it was just some workers following the letter of the law. Too bad. LOL

I'm now off to get some sewing done...have a great day!

I am not shopping today. I dislike the crowds on Black Friday. Hubby did buy a gift online yesterday. Shopping online is my preferred mode of Christmas shopping, so easy and no traffic or crowds. We are going to enjoy a nice early dinner at the Spaghetti Factory this evening.

I did..but I'm crazy and love to shop! My mom, a friend and I went to a few stores and our traditional stop at IHOP today. I got up at 3:00am and was back home by 10:30ish... it was just getting super crowed as we were heading home :)
I found lots of deal on fabric for our Christmas dresses I'm making.
I usually hate crowds but it wasn't too bad if you kept moving! :)

Toilet plungers work for unclogging drains as well.
