Thanksgiving is over for another year -- at this household anyway! Food was great, mess was large, a good time was had by all and it's back to normal here this morning, meaning laundry is being done!
Steve is on his way home this morning. He had a pretty rough weekend, spiked a temp of 102° on Friday night and was a pretty sick puppy all of Saturday and part of Sunday. Started to feel a little better after lunch on Sunday. Today he looks good and feels much better (except for the pain, of course) and is home with antibiotics and pain pills and hoping to get some much needed sleep. Thanks for the prayers.

Sew, today is our last guild meeting for the year (Christmas party/potluck) and plans are to stop at our favorite quilt shop on the way to the meeting (okay -- it's not on the way, technically, but who's counting a few extra miles?!) I need to pick up some frames for my punch needle projects and just get some inspiration. I probably won't be doing any sewing at least til Saturday this week, and really don't feel like starting something anyway. The hand applique project I was working on is not finished, but I determined that I very much dislike it, so will need to make something else for Steph -- so will try to get inspired at the quilt shop today! vbg

Thursday late afternoon I will be driving to WI to spend the night at Steph's to babysit on Friday. One of the bad parts of working retail is you always have to work on the Friday after Thanksgiving and even though Aaron thought he was going to get out of that this year because he now works for UPS, he found he will be working! LOL (For double time, so don't feel badly for him!). So, Grandma to the rescue -- it's a tough job, but someone has to do it!

1. Thanksgiving was lovely -- good family time.
2. Steve is doing so much better this morning (had to see for myself, of course!).
3. Back to the normal routine -- I do best with a routine.
4. No cooking today, and leftovers for the next week!
5. Cellphones.
