This post is just a general update since I haven't crafted anything lately. Thanksgiving was wonderful, laid back just me and my brother Rick. I cooked a small turkey breast with all the trimmings and had just the right amount of leftovers. The rest of the family was either down at Wally World or at their own houses. My sister Caryn hosted Thanksgiving for her in-laws and my nephew (the one in chef school in Vegas) did the cooking. According to Caryn, she will be making a turkey in the near future since the Thanksgiving dinner included a goose and other fancy chef school dishes that she was not excited about and she wants all of the traditional stuff that we had growing up. Caryn is a very picky eater so it was funny to me when I heard of the menu that was going to be served at her house.
Friday, I was one of the frugal (a.k.a. insane) shoppers out at 4am. I ONLY got up and went to the store because I was having a bout of sleeplessness and was back home at 4:35 and back in bed and actually slept until 8am. (unusual for me). I only went to one store, got the two things that I went there for and felt that I had the Black Friday thrill without the tired body that a day of shopping would produce.
Saturday I had a SU workshop and a giant thank you goes out to my hostess Sandy. One of the cards that the guests produced was already posted in an earlier post (the joy card). The other card I will photograph and post along with the information and credit to the person that I copied it from. Saturday is also the day that I made it back into the garage!!!! YES, I AM ONCE AGAIN PARKING MY CAR IN THE GARAGE!!! After more than a year out on the street (after a flood in my basement caused me to bring many of the contents out into the garage) I have purged and sold (on e-bay) some of my hoarded decorations and stuff. I have an office/craft center downstairs along with many Rubbermaid containers that still need to be purged or are full of crafty supplies that need to be transformed into crafty goodness.
Sunday I wrapped the majority of X-mas gifts that I had purchased awhile ago and some general sorting through of craft supplies. I will be posting more blog candy soon.
So, all in all I had the most relaxing weekend, one in which I did NOT go into work and I enjoyed every single minute of it.
