Thanksgiving Road Trip

Noticing at least one neighbor has already set up her Christmas Patio display was all I needed to take time away from working on the baby quilt, time away from preparing to head out tomorrow, to get started on my decorations.

Not wanting to wear myself out, I limited my activities to stringing lights on the patio, putting out the Christmas doormat and wreath. The outdoor tree and lighted gift boxes can wait until I return on Friday. If I'm tired from the drive, it won't happen until Saturday.


Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Turkey Day, Stolen Land Day, however you call it.

  2. Stolen Land Day... you have such a way with Words my Friend, my Dad would have laughed heartily at that one! He always used to joke that perhaps his People never should have Invited those Pilgrim Guests for Dinner!

    1. Because of my gut issues, I'm probably the only one in the family that didn't overeat.

    1. I really wanted to do a trot, but couldn't register online for the one in the area I was to be in. Looked into just showing up, but nixed that when I saw the promoter suggested participants carpool because parking was an issue. If parking is a problem at a 5K, I'm out. Too much of a headache.

  6. Drive careful! Love the Santa belt decor! Yep, we stole that land. At least should have been more grateful. Aced Oklahoma History in high school: we were pretty nasty reversing treaties. Of course, later we stole the Hawaiian islands. Is there a contest for Christmas decor?

    1. I heard there's to be a contest, but unless I see the Tyrant put it in writing on a bulletin, I'm skeptical. If there is a contest, I spotted a neighbor's patio on the other side of this building that's sure to win.
