If you are a shopper now is the time to get going I guess – stand in line at the stores and keep checking off your lists – the Christmas rush has begun. I’m afraid I am a scrooge (well maybe not a scrooge but not a shopper) – I don’t start shopping or decorating for Christmas for another week or so – I like for the memory of one holiday to be over before I start thinking of another one. The older I get and the more spread apart the family is does it to me I guess.
Mike had gotten over his cold the day before Thanksgiving but Melanie’s husband took his place in the sick line and so it was just Melanie over for Thanksgiving dinner and she brought some of the leftovers home with her to share with him. After she went home and the kitchen was cleaned up we went for a late afternoon walk before it got dark to work off some of the pie and stuff! These photos are from a near by nature trail that we have enjoyed for about 30 years now. The little building is a bird blind – there are several located on the trails where you can hide from the birds to watch them.
And quilting from Wednesday night – didn’t get a lot done as I had a late start on it for some reason or other – I don’t remember what. This is where I picked up on it last night. I am linking to the Confessions of a Fabric Addict today – Busy Hands Quilts — Crazy Mom Quilts —
