Since day three and four hit on the weekend I am playing "catch-up" here.
I am thankful for weekends! This Saturday, Tom and I drove to the little town of Brenham. It is about an hour from us. It is the home of Blue Bell ice cream. We had a good time walking through the town and looking through the stores. It was filled with antique shops which the kids hate so we browsed to our hearts content. We had a nice lunch before driving back home with a Starbucks stop on the way home. :-)
Today we (Tom & I ) took a much needed relaxing day. We were up a little early thanks to the time change and enjoyed a 2 1/2 mile walk through the nature preserve that is right by our home. The day was a little cooler and so beautiful out! There was only a few other people on the trail so we took our time and read all the signs about wildlife and explored some trails we hadn't been on before. So, I am thankful for lazy weekends. Hope you all had a great weekend, too!
Today is Day 5 of thankfulness and I can hardly believe that it is the 5th of November already! There are some people that think it's funny to let me know how many more days until Christmas and it throws me into a complete tizzy!!! I am working on trees today and will post all the pictures when I am finished. Give me another week or so... My house is full of boxes and ladders right now! Ugh!
I ran over to Hobby Lobby to pick up some more lights this afternoon and of course HAD to wander around. I was good...only picked up the lights and some ribbon. :-) In my wanderings I came across some stockings that were about 4 feet tall and I'm thinking hmmmm.... you see, my oldest informed me that this year only one gift, plus stockings. Get my drift...? LOL I'm banking on the fact here that she is too busy with school and work to read my post. hehe
So today I am thankful for a child who is trying to keep my Christmas a little under budget this year. We will see who wins... :-)
