It’s in the gene pool – Two of my nieces went on a short vacation. There were messages from them between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m. They were up that early on vacation, but I would be too. Early risers run in our gene pool.
Yikes! – Every morning I pass a crumpled brown inflatable lying on the ground. It’s a Thanksgiving turkey or pilgrim (I haven’t seen it inflated) but it looks like a dead deer. Every morning my heart drops when I see it. Every. Single. Time!
The kiss of death – In the summer, I found a fabric at a local craft store that I really liked. On sale! I bought it to make window treatments. I have it on three different windows but I wanted to have an extra supply in case I wanted to do more with it (table runner, another window treatments, whatever!). The store discontinued it. I bought the last piece which was two yards and not enough for another window. As soon as I like something and especially when it’s reasonably priced, it’s discontinued. It happened to the fabric I have in the bedroom. I would love to make a matching bed skirt but it’s unavailable anywhere. I must have the touch! If I like you, you are history! That’s true of television programs too.
Tis the season – Even with no gifts to buy, it gets to be an expensive season. There are things I want to get for the house and the sales now are better than any other time of the year. Somehow December is always a “medical” month too with lots of checkups coming up.
It’s the first holiday – This week we celebrate Thanksgiving in the US. There will only be four of us together. None of us are turkey fans so we are throwing caution (and tradition) to the wind and serving stuff we like. Coming out from under the yoke of required Thanksgiving foods! Yeah!
So how was your week?
