I hope everyone had a pleasant Thanksgiving. Rick and I shared Thanksgiving together without any family or friends! It was nice. It was quiet and the food was good. In the afternoon, Rick watched the Dallas Cowboys football game and I watched a movie.
Friday, I walked downtown to the bakery, enjoyed a steamy, decadent dark hot chocolate. Mmm. So good. And! I read a book. The bakery was busy, a steady stream of people coming into the tasty shop, purchasing their goodies and leaving. Very few people remained at the bakery, so, I was one of the few savoring a few moments at the shop.
Saturday we drove a short distance from our home and enjoyed Thanksgiving with family! It was nice. They had Christmas music playing! 🙂 It was a restful visit. They invited a friend and Rick and I loved her. She was fun. She was a nice addition to our small group. So, we had two Thanksgiving meals in just a couple of days! And wowza! Her stuffing and mashed potatoes were delicious. 🙂
I decided to start something new. Here is a list of the most popular, top three, blogging articles for November. I don’t know where I got this incredible idea, but there it is. So, for November, these are your favorites ~
1.) Murder On the Orient Express by Agatha Christie ~ November 5th
2.) Top Ten Tuesday ~ (Books I would like my future children to read, nieces, nephews, godchildren, etc) ~ November 14th
3.) Hidden Treasures by Ruby Mae O’Dell ~ November 8th
A giveaway! Who doesn’t like a giveaway??? I read on the internet, December 8th is National Letter Writing Day!!! And! We know the internet is always correct *ahem* So, in honor of the lost art of letter writing, I’m going to give away a box of notecards ~ four (4) designs. Beginning December 1st until December 7th, just leave a comment on my blog, telling me your interested and I’ll enter your name in a drawing to win the notecards. I’ll remind you. 🙂 Your welcome. Because postage is so costly, this is for the United States only. On the morning of December 8th, Rick will draw a name and I’ll announce the winner on my blog. 🙂
There are sixteen (16) notecards and each card has a ditty 🙂
