black friday?

somehow it seems it should be called freaky friday? if you're one of those crazy enough to venture out and fight the masses to grab some holiday bargains...i wish you the best of luck!

as for us, we're still recovering from the bountiful thanksgiving meal we had yesterday at my brother's house. having a brother with cheffin' experience is a good thing if you're as domestically challenged as i.

here's a little collage of the afternoon. turkey breast, green bean casserole, garlic mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, warm bread, stuffing, and LOTS of red wine. perfection. then we just zoned out on the couch and watched The Godfather marathon on cable until our bellies gave us permission to add coffee, pumpkin & apple pies to the collection. *sigh* happy, grateful times.

waiting for the ups man today - he's supposed to be bringing my blank but beautifully printed cd's so i can get started burning 100+ copies of "heidi's jingle bell jam!" we've got the cover art ready to print as well, might get started on that this evening, too. it's quite a process putting together a holiday cd each year, but it always makes a neat gift, and i really enjoy the process of doing most of it by hand. the playlist won't be graced by the ethereal voices of kirk and i this year, we just didn't have time to record a holiday song...but being the 10th anniversary edition, i'm pretty pleased with the songlist this year.

i'll be starting on some other holiday projects this weekend, too - trying for another year of primarily DIY or thrifted gifts...

no decorations this weekend, but will probably break those boxes out next week sometime. the holidays are upon us, once again, and i LOVE it.
