Happy Thanksgiving!

....and that series of pictures pretty much represents our Thanksgiving day...well, evening :-) Mom & I got the Thanksgiving dinner put together for about 15 people. We had the traditional turkey, stuffing, wild rice, mashed potatoes, gravy, sweet potato casserole, & potato bread; and of course, lots of pies: pumpkin, key lime, cherry, apple, and pecan. 'Twas supper yummy. Everyone declared it a total success :-) But, since we held it over at my grandfather's house, we ate pretty early in the day and everyone was already on their way to their next destination by 4:00...this left Troy, the puppies and I a pretty nice long evening together. We laid back, relaxed, read the paper, looked at all 52 ads, yawned, stretched, and laid back down :-)  It was such a good evening. I stayed up until 11:00 due to a sale that was starting then online, but ended up not purchasing anything and was in bed by 11:15. All in all, it was a great day. We did head out today to see what we could see...and all we ended up with was four brand new pillows for our bed, a movie, the first season of "Dexter" and a Mannheim Steamroller CD. But hey! Normally, the four pillows would have been $68 and we got them for a grand total of $18.00! They were 60% off and I had a $10.00 coupon for the store. Pretty good!

And now, the return of reality. Troy has gone back to work tonight, and I will go back tomorrow and work all weekend...

Happy Friday evening!
