Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. In the immortal words of Ron Wesley, “Can we panic now?”
Actually all I have left is to pick up the turkey from the meat store. I have my deposit and my time slot so it should go pretty well. It is a fresh turkey and I am in charge of it this year because Peter will be pulling a balloon in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade and then driving home.
Also today Ariel returns from college. She had to stay until everyone was out of the dorm since she is an RA and has to close the building down. Caroline informed me that only Arial can pick her up from the bus.
There have been notices on the social media sites along with some regional commercials about shopping locally. We try to do that year round. It may cost us a few buck more, but we know the owners and if there is a problem it is amazing how fast it gets solved. I have a lot of folks who are artists that have Etsy site and their own websites who read this web log. I encourage you to put your online shop in the comments so that others can see them. For the other readers, go take a look at what they have to sell. You might just find the perfect gift.
I am still very thankful for things but today my mind is on getting ready for tomorrow.
I am thankful that I have everything I need from the grocery store so I don’t have to go there for a couple of days.
I am thankful that I will not be shivering in front of a store to get any doorbusters. I have entirely too many memories of Black Friday from the retailer’s POV. I wish everyone who are going for the doorbusters the best of luck and may you get the object you want.
I am thankful for up in the air schedules for good reasons.
I am thankful for a little pause before Caroline’s Birthday. Hard to believe that in two weeks she will be 10 years old.
I am grateful to everyone who is marching or has marched in the Macy Parade.
