LOL! Lynn, you misunderstand. ummm... for me it's the crowds on Black Friday that make me happy. Even if I don't want to buy a thing that's marked down. I just love being amongst the shopping frenzied crowd.

That's a good idea about those boxes. Not sure if I will switch to your system, but I will keep it in mind.

Our Hallmark ornaments hang from tension rods at the ceiling - with fishing line. I do keep the fishing line attached to the ornaments so it's pretty easy hanging them, except I need DH's help to get them to the ceiling. I. do. not. do. ladders.

You are right about the crowds, Jeanette! Black Friday is an amazing day for people watching! I have seen some of the best and some of the worst out of people on that day.

Lynn I hope you got your battery fixed. So lucky you have neighbors to get you to church...I think I'd have to call a cab! LOL
No Black Friday for me either. First of all have any of you tried navigating a crowd with a wheel chair? (Hope that sentance didn't sound sarcastic because I'm not being sarcastic) Eye Yi Yi!!! LOL Since we usually take my son everywhere we go this can be a challenge. We have had people fall practally into his lap because they don't watch where they are going (cell phone addicts) or bump right into the handle bars even thought I'm standing right there holding the handle bars.. Many people don't even apologize after doing so but instead give me the evil eye like what am I doing in THERE way. Not every is horrible but it is much easier for us to hit the stores earlier so we can enjoy the shopping and with so many places being fully decorated the week before it is a perfect time for us. (ok technically everything is decorated before Halloween and thats rediculous) Well today I'm sorting through some christmas boxes. and doing a little more shopping. I think we will go out for lunch this time.
Enjoy your day with whatever you choose to do!!!!!

New battery is next on my list for today!

Susan, too many people these days thinking their own time and space is more important than anyone else's. Hugs to you, my friend.

Good evening! Ready to crash but I wanted to check in first Today was hectic! I'm still cleaning like crazy for our Thanksgiving company - like all the tiny nooks and crannies you forget about, lol I've been up dusting, washing rafters, the baseboards, tops of cabinets!

There is no way I'd venture out on Black Friday anymore. I used to! Now it's just insanity. Sadly, we live in an area where pushing and shoving and rudeness is the norm - but add on Black Friday? It's asking for trouble!

Sue - your wheelcart reminds me of our double stroller days. We had our 2 girls in the side by side double stroller and people would see us and move in front of us on purpose all the time. They didn't want to get 'stuck' behind the stroller so they'd block us. Happened a lot at Disney, too One year, my dh got so upset that he started using it as a battering ram! I about died. He would just say "oh, sorry - didn't see you!" Eeek!

Lynn, I'm sorry about your battery, my friend ! I hope the new replacement is already in place!

Will peek at blogs tomorrow ........ this mama is exhausted!

Hugs ♥

Good Morning Inky Friends!





Susan, I am so sorry to hear you encounter such rudeness when out and about with your son. I don'r know why some people feel the need to act that way. (BTW, I go Black Friday shopping SOLO... DH couldn't be caught dead in that crowd so he stays home with Brock.)

And you, too, Kelly... yikes! I kind of applaud your DH for taking a stand. (We had a double stroller, too.... those were the good old days.)

Lynn, did you get the new battery? I hope you're back in working order now.

I put up two trees yesterday. The house is looking festive. Still a lot to do... but progress.

The BIG news is...... DD was able to book the treehouse for a night over Christmas break. She is super excited... and glad her dad was able to make the phone call and get it arranged. That's a bit of a challenge when you live way up in bush country Alaska. The tree house sleeps 6, but not sure who will be going and who will be staying here at the house instead. I guess there's time to figure that out - it's December 29th.

Leaving a trail of friendly (((HUGS)))

Susan, calling a cab what going to be Plan B.

The battery is in so I will be making a run to pick up the final groceries I need for my Thanksgiving cooking.

Then, Kelly, I will be hitting those nooks and crannies with the dust rag and mop!


Congratulations on the trees and the Tree House, Jeanette. You may have to draw straws to see who gets to share the adventure with your DD.

Thanks Lynn... our DD tried to book the treehouse when she was here this summer but all the dates were full. She's VERY excited that she got a date now.

Lynn, I like how you multi-task.

My laundry room is right beside my kitchen and my Working Studio.... wanna know where I hang out while doing laundry. Nope, not the kitchen... LOL!

That's so cool, Lynn. My Working Studio is a room all of its own... and... shhhh! It's the largest room in the entire house... and it's ALL MINE! Don't blow my cover, okay? I'm not sure my DH has noticed that.

Truthfully, when he saw the house (months before I did) he told me I would love the room that could be my "playroom" and it is and I do.

The house comes with his work - we live in a parsonage - so I get what I get, but I definitely LOVE this house. A wee bit small for my normal liking but so comfortable and cute!

Kelly, I'm sure you will love all that you do to make this holiday special for your family and extras... which means cooking, cooking, and more cooking.

My meal prep is easy - we're going to a huge gathering of a church family and their extra guests (like us). We actually join them for several holidays each year - they are a farm family and have a humongous machine shed that we gather in and eat there. It's so nice!

And my contribution to the meal is so easy - ICE and a salad. That's the host's request. I want to keep her happy so we'll be invited again.

The Thanksgiving one is always VERY fun... they have 7 adult children, most married with kids... and they ALL come to Thanksgiving, though not all of them come to all the other holidays. The reason Thanksgiving is not optional is because they all gather outside after the meal and take a family photo for their Christmas cards! They also take individual family pictures of each individual family. The cards are an amazing compilation of the family photos.

Kelly, sounds like your house will be filled with love, family, and good food this Thanksgiving! Have a fabulous day!

I will be baking pies today: chocolate and coconut cream which are both family favorites.


Your celebration on the farm sounds like the perfect Thanksgiving event, Jeanette!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!!!

My pies go in the oven this morning so the house will soon smell wonderful. We go to my sisters who is only about 3 miles away so no traffic for us YAY!
I have spent the last few days shopping for the grandkids. I'm nearly done and I can focus on wrapping and enjoying the rest of the season doing little stuff like baking and crafting with the grandkids. Love our time together.
Ahhhhhhhh Jeanette how awesome to spend dinner on the farm! Sounds "Picture Perfect".
Lynn your pies sound yummy...love chocolate! Unfortunately for me my whole family is stuck on apple and pumpkin. LOL
Kellie so ambitious getting all those nooks and crannies. I always seem to forget those until after company comes and then I try to sneak in a quick wipe. Sometimes I try to look sneaky and use my socked foot. Do you think they notice? heehee
Signing off for now. Enjoy your time with your families and I'll check in tomorrow or Saturday.

Good Morning Inky Friends!





Black Friday, to be exact.
Enjoy!




Okay, let's recap... Lynn's floor is so clean you can eat off of it... and Susan's floor is clean, too... but you might not want to look at her socks.

Heeheehee..........Jeanette...I would rather eat a bowl of peas (and if my mother was still alive she would have told you it would have been a cold day in %&@@ before 1 would touch my lips!!) Never have been a fan of Black Friday. Always figured I didn't need anything that bad LOL.

Good morning, ladies! My mother's goal is to make it through the weekend with plenty of food for all! And, of course, she made it as usual. Grandkids were sad that there were no cheesy potatoes so a double batch made it to the Christmas list

No shopping for me with all the crowds. Stayed in playing cards and board games.


Before my son and his family left last night, they put up my tree so my goal is to get it decorated by tonight.


My sister is still here so we may get a little crafty.


Kelly, how great that your two families blended so well! Have fun picking your tree! When I was a child, my mother always took us in search of the perfect tree. We hated it because she made us hold up every tree at 4 or 5 lots and turn them to be inspected from every angle before making her choice. So it is artificial trees for me!! And her these days!


Susan, there is one time that I will eat peas and that is when I make chicken and dumplings for supper. I think it is a hold over from school days over 50 years ago when they always served those together.


Jeanette, did you have any excitement out and about with the crowds?


Wishing you all a fabulous weekend!

Hi Lynn... sounds like you've had a fabulous weekend so far and more fun to come. YAY!

Alas, I missed the crowds this year. Came home from Thanksgiving Dinner with friends on the farm and had a horrendous headache that just kept getting worse and worse... so I took some ibuprofen (and a nap, since it and tylenol put me to sleep).... it wasn't really much better after the nap, so I decided going out with the crowds was not a good plan. Stayed home and chilled (literally - I was freezing). By the next day I felt fine.

Hi friends!

Lynn that is so funny about feeding through the weekend! My crowd had turkey and trimmings later that night and all of yesterday but that's it for us! No more plates of food here except pies my daughter made her homemade pecan and pumpkin pie's including homemade crust and a homemade cheesecake. I gained 10 pounds just looking at them!

I did venture out yesterday to the mall because my daughter works there and had to be taken to work. Just for kicks and giggles I walked around to see what it was like and did shop after all! When I pulled up and found a parking spot right in the front I felt it was a sign LOL!!! The stores were actually really good and had some incredible deals with all the registers open and I had one person in front of me at each line if anyone at all Apparently I missed all the madness! Only one store had a line out the door and I avoided that one
It was successful!

Today we are finishing the last of the Christmas decorating. My husband has been rebuilding a truck with his brother, when his brother is in town from Colorado. So that means stamping for me this afternoon!

But first, coffee. I need to go buy some more K cups as I'm out of those.

And. That. Just. Can't. Happen!

Sending happy weekend hugs!

Had a wonderful semi quiet weekend. No shopping for me but I did do quite a bit of decorating. Grandkids helped with 2 of the trees and wanted to help with the main tree but I told them thats Ama's (instead of grandma and grandpa we are Ama and Apa). Since we went to my sisters for Thanksgiving we didn't reap the benifits of left overs except for the cranberry sauce that we make. I did have my DH go to the Fresh Market where they were selling split turkey quarters for real cheap so he got a few to throw in the freezer for a later meal and I took some and made some turkey veggie soup.


Kelly, sounds like a wonderful time with 2 families. Had to laugh about peas....seems we're 2 Peas in a Pod! lol Oh and you cannot run out of K-cups!!! Don't know what I'd do without my supply! Have you tried the Cafe Escapes Chia Latte? My fav as an evening relax time cup.


Lynn.....back then I picked the peas out of Chicken and Dumplings. Got away with it at school but at home mom always caught me. lol


Jeanette, I sure hope your feeling better. Headachs are the worst. I suffer from migrains so I feel your pain. I was finally put on some meds and it has reduced them from 3-4 a week to maybe 3 a month.


Hope everyone has a great day!
Oh here's a pic of my main tree. We have had red and gold forever and this year decided on teal and bronze. I LOVE IT!

Hi friends!

Oh Sue and Jeanette - you girls have me laughing this morning, LOL! Yep, it's Monday . We got rain and wind and lights not working on my commute to the schools! UGH.

Sue - your tree is gorgeous!! Mine is still bare, waiting for it to fall as we picked it up this weekend. The smell is GLORIOUS!!! We are waiting for all 4 kids to be home together at the same time, but at this rate, it doesn't look like that's going to happen until Christmas Day!

Any cyber shopping for you lovelies? I'm all shopped out! I have packaging arriving from near and far from my week's Christmas shopping online - none with cats, though

Oh, and my dd21 and her bf invited me to shop and lunch with them (I window shopped!) and found this gem!! I now have this year's gingerbread house, and it couldn't be more fitting!

Susan, your tree is gorgeous! Thanks... my head feels great now. Sorry you deal with migraines. I can't imagine how bad that must be.

Kelly, me too... packages will be coming and coming. My fingers have done a lot of Christmas shopping in the past week.

Jeanette, I sure am happy that you are feeling well again! Pain is no fun!

Susan, your tree is gorgeous. I am working on getting all the copper bits added to mine this morning. I finished all the personal and Hallmark ornaments yesterday. I'll post a picture when it is done!


Kelly, I cannot wait to see your Starbuck's gingerbread house completed! How fabulous!


I woke up early and did a little cyber shopping this morning. As soon as the tree is finished, I am going to start pulling out all the gifts I have stashed away and start wrapping!!

HI Lynn! I think this might be the first year we get to do that. Since last year my son realized there 'is no Santa' It was bittersweet, as he's our last 'baby'.

We have a lot of fun with our crazy Elf on the Shelf though - he looks forward to crazy antics every year! We have a funny, mischevious elf who likes to cause friendly mischief, so at least we have that

Thanks Lynn!

Kelly, I have wished for a long time that there had been an elf on the shelf when my kids were young........... but this year I've purchased "Selfie Elfie" and hope to begin a family tradition with him. (We'll also be using him at our Minister's Christmas Party.) I hope he's a big hit.

Oh fun, Jeanette! I've seen that in a few places! Nice way to catch up on what the kids missed out on

My dd's and I have a riot each year thinking of all the fun things Buddy gets into! Yes, he named our Elf the same as our dog - what can I say, he wasn't very creative back then, ROFL! He named both - his dog and the Elf - after Will Farrell's movie, ELF.

Love. that. boy ♥

I think Buddy is a perfect name.
