We are headed out on Sunday afternoon for a few days in Williamsburg, VA. We love it there. Truly. Love.
We are going to get to stay free in a wonderful time share, thanks to a sweet friend. We are going to relax, do a bit of shopping, take some senior pictures.
Tomorrow is our last co-op day for this semester. I am ready for a break. I am taking my class to a nice cafe to practice our manners.
I can hardly believe it is almost Thanksgiving! I will not be home until the day before Thanksgiving, so I have been planning ahead. The menu is all planned. I will be buying my turkey this week, actually I will be buying two. I always buy an extra this time of year, as they are so inexpensive! I slow roast my turkey overnight, so when I get home on Wednesday, I will prep the turkey, stuff him, and put him in the oven. It is amazing to wake up to the smell of turkey roasting away! Plus the majority of my work is done overnight. You can search my archive for all the directions, or wait until next week. I will post the link to the directions.
We also must go tag a tree this week still - we always go cut our tree at a local place the day after Thanksgiving! Although I think one time, we did it the Saturday after. I like to enjoy Christmas as long as possible, but I also try not to skip Thanksgiving. So, I have all that to plan for as well!
Today I must take Lindsay and Emily to get shoes for work and Lindsay needs a pair of black pants. I will get a day out after all, though modified. The younger set will be hanging out with Grandpa - they like it there, the grandparents have a wii!
My husband surprised me last evening. When he arrived home from work with flowers for me! They are a sweet bunch of mini carnations. It was unexpected and so thoughtful. Thanks Honey!
I guess I am just babbling on now. I'm sorry, but I do like talking to you and sharing life.
What are your plans for Thanksgiving!
