Late again. And with only a few more weeks left in the year! At least I’m only behind on one holiday at the moment.
A look at what I had planned for Thanksgiving, both at NinjaHusband’s aunt’s house on Thanksgiving and at my mom’s house on the Saturday afterward. There’s more on the back of that sheet of paper. I’m pretty happy that Thanksgiving comes but once a year.
The cat, an excellent source of fun. She gets in playful moods when we come home from work and leaps about, playing with her toys. This time she got in a shopping bag and waited to pounce on one of us when we got too close.
Behold my awesome pictures. I give you: side table. This was a TV stand that belonged to my grandparents when they got their first TV, I think. My grandma gave it to me. It’s the perfect height for an end table, and I love the scratches all over it. Character.
Thanksgiving night at my Mom’s house. These are plates that belonged to my grandma, all freshly washed and ready to be set out for Saturday’s meal.
NinjaHusband and my Dad moved a ton of stuff from my grandma’s house to my uncle’s, and to my aunt’s, and to Mom & Dad’s. This hutch moved in and now holds the nicer plates and china.
Tops of poplar trees. I went out to the back yard on Saturday, before all the family came over, to get some pictures of trees for my sister who is writing a book about trees as literary theme. I got this shot by lying down and snapping just the tops.
On Sunday we went into Chicago to see our friend John, who is running sound for the new Cirque du Soliel show at the Chicago Theatre. Much fun was had by all.
