Rest, shopping and turkey!

It was wonderful having the week off and though hubby had to work I got plenty of things accomplished. It was nice having the time to read, stitch, watch movies, and get some holiday shopping done. Been eons since I spent the better part of a day wandering in the mall and looking around and not worrying about the clock. I got a wonderful pair of UGG boots and a dress for my niece's wedding. I'm enjoying The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown and I highly recommend this book. My stitching was mostly confined to putting the finishing touches on a model so I hope to be working on my own projects soon.

We spent Thanksgiving with my daughter who cooked an awesome dinner. Plenty of food, fun, and friends to enjoy with it. After dinner my daughter and I braved a visit to Michael's for their earlybird sale at 5PM and we both got some awesome goodies, at great prices, and the lines weren't bad at all.

One of my cyber-stitching friends Sara M. came to the USA from Italy for a visit and I was able to met up with her at Needle In A Haystack in Alameda and we had a great visit just chatting and stashing. What better way for stitchers to bond! LOL! My bag was full of plenty of goodies, mostly Lizzie Kate charts.

I finished off my vacation by getting out the Christmas decorations and started putting things out in preparation for the holidays. Hope to find a "real" tree I like so I can decorate it before I head out of town for my niece's wedding. Already December is looking to be a very busy month.

So nice that you got to meet your "cyber" friend from Italy. I'm sure she was thrilled to.
Uggs boots are great, they'll keep you warm for sure!
