Well, That Was Nice

November 26, 2012

 I hope last week was as lovely for you as it was for me. I took last week “off” as much as I could, just keeping up the bare minimum of household activity to keep the family functioning. I indulged in an orgy of reading every chance I got and reveled in the cool weather we’ve been having. Fires in the fireplace and open windows and no sweating!

We celebrated a quiet Thanksgiving with my father-in-law Thursday. And though we usually wait till the first week of December to decorate for the holidays, we decided to take advantage of an extra set of hands (two sets, actually, as my mother-in-law joined us Saturday) to put the Christmas tree up. We broke out the eggnog, put the Florida/Florida State college football game on TV and went to town.

I’d say that was a pretty good start to the holiday season.

How was your week?

  1. Good for you! That sounds like the perfect Thanksgiving. How nice that you could have a fire in the fireplace and help with the decorating. I think that I will start that last part this week.

    It is amazing how much time we have when we take a blogging break, isn't it? I'm glad that you enjoyed your "week off", Kathy.

  2. Hi, Kathy--We had such a nice time last week. It felt relaxed instead of crazy. I want my life to be like that more often. I'm glad to be back with my blog friends, though.
