Hello and Good Morning!
I'm hoping that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and that it was as tasty as ours was! The biggest thrill for us though was having the kids back in town.
It was great to all be together again, if only for a brief time. C&M are now back in Texas, having flown back last evening. Colin texted that despite the dire prognostications, there were no lines at security so they breezed through and their flight was on time and no delays (despite the pouring rain here in the Philadelphia area). Mailing will be back for 2-3 days next week for work and then they will both be back permanently on the 19th. YAY!!
Otto (Anna's dog) joined us on Thursday. He is a big fan of turkey!
He is a quiet dog and takes his food so nicely - sitting and then giving first one paw and then the other. When he takes food from your fingers, he is so gentle!!
None of my Christmas cacti have buds yet, but Bonnie & Zhongren have a gorgeous one beginning to blooom.
I do, however, have snapdragons still blooming! For the first time ever I caught deer munching on them, so I chased them off and then cut a couple of the blooms to have on the kitchen windowsill.
Dee and I did meet up on Friday for a few hours of friendship, knitting and sipping. We decided that Panera's might not be quite as crowded as it can be on a Saturday and that everyone else out would be shopping on Black Friday. As usual, it was a lovely time. However, it kept making me think that Friday was Saturday and then Saturday was Sunday, etc.
So now a new week. We are on cat duty and I will be heading over to C&M's to feed Talbot and Marcel once Fletch is awake (and it is no longer dark outside). I will also be picking up soaking wet laundry! C&M's washer conked out in the middle of a cycle yesterday morning, so I will gather up the wet clothes, bring them home to wash (again) and then dry. Once they are back in town, if they determine they need to replace the washer I will not recommend a Maytag (the one I have) - LOL. I will, however, suggest a Speed Queen.
Cheers to a great week ahead!!
