I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Ours was great. We headed to Nick’s Dad’s and nearly the whole family was there. Not LJ, of course, he never makes it home for Thanksgiving. He and Collin will be here early in January for Christmas. But Mollie was here with the grand-pets for the holiday and Mollie joined us when we went to see The Good Liar. Excellent movie!
We’re finally expecting to see some progress on the living room this next week. Crown molding, new doors in the hallway, possibly new baseboards – but we’re thinking about maybe getting hardwoods to replace the worn carpet, so the baseboards might have to wait. I’m luke-warm about the hardwood. I think it would be beautiful, but my preference is dark wood and I know that shows every speck of dust and pet hair. I’m not that great a house keeper, sooo… I don’t know.
The Christmas tree is up and lit, but not yet decorated. The cat enjoys sitting under it. And it’s in my writing room so I get to enjoy it the most.
I’m not much of a black Friday shopper. Two reasons – I don’t like shopping and I don’t like crowds. That's plenty to keep me at home. But Nick decided we should go shopping for something. So I find myself, at the grand old age of sixty-two, to be the proud owner of my first-ever brand new car. It seems to have all the bells and whistles. Now I need to find out how to use them all. But I’m happy and excited to have it. Of course, I’m one that loves staying home. But it looks great on the carport!
