The last 2 years Kelly and I have cheerfully gotten up before the crack of dawn to join the throngs of shoppers looking for a deal on Christmas goodies. This year there just wasn't anything we wanted that was offered. So we just as cheerfully slept a little late after a great Thanksgiving dinner.
It was supposed to start raining Friday night so that morning I planted some bulbs (a little late here) and Jake turned over a couple of beds in the garden to ready them for Spring. We have some walking Egyptian onions that refuse to stay where they're put and we always have go get them out of the other beds or they'll take over. Grandma Laird's iris are safe for another year, thanks to Jake.
And our house and garden still have most of the vestiges of Happy Hollow. I do so love Fall.
I pulled all of the marigold plants, shook them a little and then laid them in the beds. Playing in the garden was a great way to spend the day. Then in the afternoon, we jumped in the car and went to Max's to have some post Thanksgiving pizza and cake with Max and Quinn and Cullen. Michele got home - she's working at Sears for the holidays and had gotten to work at 3:45. She said it wasn't too bad, all in all, for Black Friday.
Can you tell I'm not quite ready to let go of Fall?
I'm afraid Winter is on it's way though. The temperatures have drastically fallen.
I have one awesome potted plant that doing it's best to hold on. I almost feel like bringing it in the house tonight. Probably will.
We're getting excited and ready for the Moda Blog Hop though - Don't forget - December 5-9th.
