Meredith and her cousin Cameron yesterday on Thanksgiving. The hand-holding kills me.

Time // 10:00 a.m.
Place // kitchen counter
Eating // bacon and Christmas cookies
Drinking // coffee
Watching // my husband feed Meredith leftover snacks
Reading // Moby-Dick by Herman Melville – agreed to a readalong with my brother-in-law (he’s smoking me on speed though) and am enjoying it a lot more than I expected to
Wanting // some cool weather to arrive and stick around
Thinking // about venturing out to a few stores
Creating // Christmas decorations
Hoping // my uncle’s health improves
Needing // to do a purge of stuff we don’t need or use throughout the house
Anticipating // Christmas :)


Our Thanksgiving was a little untraditional – after a quiet morning at home we spent the afternoon in the hospital visiting my uncle where my family had Chinese food. We’re gathering again later today to eat barbecue too. Then that evening we had our big meal with David’s family. I think the best part was watching Meredith sample the different pies.

So funny. Anyway it was good, and now we have three more days to relax, and my husband and I are about to head out shopping. Not for gifts yet (I’m not that ahead of the game) but for things we need (and want) around the house.

Happy long weekend! :)
