I hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving. Ours was very nice and delicious with great company, but boy oh boy was I tired afterwards. I just knew I would sleep well that night and did I ever! Being the insomniac that I am it was so needed.
I skipped the whole Black Friday shopping thing - instead I opted for a 15 minute drive out to a suburb, I am not super familiar with and walked around a lake, stopped in at a bookstore/cafe, had a fab cinnamon scone and cappuccino while sitting next to a window facing a gorgeous water fountain and doing some people watching and enjoying the Christmas decorations. Love.love.love.
In my car, I have two Christmas CD's that I used to always start playing in October - much to the embarassment of my then high school daughter, as I had all of her friends in the car.....I sure miss those times! But I so enjoy singing along to these songs while driving in the car!
My guy was out of town yesterday and today, so I puttered around the house doing a bit of holiday decorating, I plan to be very low key this year in that department - simple is perfection for me. I enjoyed perusing Vicki Archer's French Essence and My French Life book's, watched a few movies, rearranged some pictures in my living room and kitchen and just enjoyed a low key, relaxing weekend while sipping on my baileys and coffee - yum!
Here's hoping this week bring lots of
good health, happiness and joy to us all!
