Quiet Thanksgiving


This is a short week.  The kids are out of school on Wednesday.  We had plans to go to San Diego again and then to go to St. George but in the end I decided to stay here. We’ve been traveling so much and I’m ready to have a few days where we don’t do anything.  Robin and Paul are staying in No. Utah so it will just be the four of us.  When I tell people that, I see a look of pity cross their faces, but a small Thanksgiving dinner with my kids, no visitors, no traveling. no making arraignments for the dog, is just what the doctor ordered for this weary girl.

I do have a few things to do though before I can relax:

  • Mail Paul’s birthday box
  • Put finishing touches on Christmas list
  • Buy any decorations still needed for our ‘blue’ Christmas
  • Giant wreath (I’m sort of losing steam on this one, we’ll see)
  • Piece the tops of the two Christmas quilts
  • Find a place where I can buy a flocked tree.

The picture above is from my friend Laura’s home.  It is the first flocked tree that looked good to me.  I can easily picture it with blue and silver decorations.

If I can get all or most of these things done I will be able to chill and enjoy the holiday with my kids.  Wish me luck.
