So today is Thanksgiving and it is just about my favorite day of the year. Certainly my favorite time of the year! From now until after New Years is a wonderful time. We get to spend it with family, eat good food and just be appreciative of everything & everyone we have in our lives.
This week (and month) lots of bloggers have been stating what they are thankful for. I would like to do a little of that now.
1. God - without whom all things would not be possible. Thank you Lord!
2. Family - I could never be, without all of you in my life.
3. My new found love of fabrics and sewing.
4. All of you who read this little blog of mine. Thank YOU.
I could go on and on, but I want to keep it simple today.
We have done all of our prep work for the wonderful meal and the turkey is cooking as we speak. All I need to do now is make a couple of loaves of banana bread for a wonderful couple that is bringing their new baby boy home today from the hospital!
I am going to get a Christmas tree & decorate the house this weekend and plan a cookie party for some friends that have kids & my niece. It is loads of fun! Messy, but fun.
I have to confess, I did a little Christmas shopping online this morning. I used MyPoints, have you heard of it? I am a little familiar with Ebates and I think it runs along those lines. Anyway, after you sign up you can make purchases and get a certain amount of points per dollar you spend. Most major retailers are affiliated with them too. After accumulating a certain amount, I usually use mine for dining gift cards. I don't really have to money to eat out so I like to use them for that. If you plan on Black Friday (or any) shopping, sign up and get the rewards! (I am not affiliated with them at all, just love the program). Check them out, www.mypoints.com.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Enjoy your family and the wonderful times together!
