'Twas the Weekend Before Thanksgiving...

November 23rd, 2013 at 07:41 pm

We had such a nice (and frugal) day today.

Woke up to snow! And it continued snowing off and on throughout the day. Beautiful!

We made hot chocolate and hung out in our pajamas. And then worked on the living room a little (we put in our new tv/game cabinet yesterday, and we were refeeding the speakers and stuff).

Then went to a friends' housewarming. They live up a dirt road; I'm glad we put the snow tires on last weekend. (This house was HUGE and had 360 degree views and a glass-enclosed temperature-controlled wine cellar. I have to say though - I wouldn't want to live in a house like that - it wasn't "warm" at all - not temperature warm, but cozy warm).

Then went to another friends' house (very cozy!) and while F and their daughter played, we hung out and ate yummy food (cheese, crackers, olives) and ate the cookies I made (cranberry/white chocolate/pecans) and drank tea.

Then home to a simple dinner (toast and deviled eggs and some satsumas).

Tomorrow I have to get the house ready for the family (who arrive on Monday and Wednesday)... vacuuming, putting sheets on the bed and setting out towels. And have to do the last of the shopping for Thanksgiving week (this will be a big shop - I have to feed four extra people!).

    Nice way to spend a Saturday with good friends, yummy things to eat and pretty landscape with fresh snow. Stay out of snowdrifts! I manage to slip slide into these at least a couple of times each winter.

    We saw a little snow in the air last night, but not anything much. I am so looking forward to some real snow days soon!

    I woke up to snow this morning (Sunday) - our first real snow of the season so far. It sounds as though you and your family had a memory making kind of day. Smile
