Just wanted to pop in and see how many of you were scurrying around today preparing for tomorrow's feast. Are you setting a beautiful table? I hope you have your little white lights lit and are listening to some beautiful music and taking a deep breath once in awhile. Remember, we are all supposed to ENJOY these special days.
Today is going to be a busy day at the shop. More deliveries should arrive - hooray! I'm hanging our cedar roping, moving around a little furniture and taking in new handmades. Friday night is our village tree lighting and then the Dicken's Festival starts on Saturday. It's all fun! Isn't Christmas just the most magical time of year? Our little town looks like a fairytale at night. The white lights glow, the shop windows are wonderful this year and there is a dusting of hope in the air.
How many of you are braving the Black Friday sales? Dick and I did that once and, I have to admit, we did have a lot of fun. Don't think I'm up for it this year though.
Are you having Thanksgiving at your own homes this year? Ours is going to be quite small, all the kids have plans with their "in-laws" and will pop in for dessert a little later. Dick and I are cooking with Mom and then taking some goodies to the nursing home to spend time with Dad. I just can hardly stand the thought of him being there on Thanksgiving. Last year we were able to take him out for the holidays, but this year is a different story. Please, please don't forget our elderly during the holiday season. Now it's our turn!
Well friends, I hope your Thanksgiving is filled with joy, hope, love and happiness. Here's to you and yours!
Until next time...
