It’s Wednesday night. Google’s Thanksgiving doodle is up and we’ve eaten and cleaned up dinner. The wonderful feeling of “long weekend” is settling in. Geoff and my dad are re-watching the Republican debates in my office (to Geoff’s credit, he just loaded the dishwasher and wiped off all the counters.) My mom is taking a much needed break. I *think* she’s in the bathroom reading magazines She arrived late this afternoon and jumped right in, fixing dinner! Trey is on the couch with me–other end, playing “Asphalt” on his iTouch. Addie and Rachel are at the puzzle table, looking through pictures and playing with Photo Booth on Clark’s laptop. Clark is back and forth between the girls and the debate re-run. Taft is downstairs playing Wii, Chase is at Safeway working and I’m trying to put the final touches on this post that I’ve been writing since yesterday. My pain meds are messing with my vision. I’m super fuzzy and I am having one heck of a time concentrating and not dozing off.
Anyway, I wanted to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving with a fabulous Friday FIVE …
Just for FUN … FREE Thanksgiving coloring pages from Life is Good. Print some off for the kids or grandkids. She doesn’t know it yet, but Addie is going to color this one for me, for our 2011 Thanksgiving scrapbook.
Here are links to the “Thankful Turkey” and “Sweet As Pie” coloring pages:
The rest are HERE.
Love the website, They Draw & Cook. Nate and Salli are a brother & sister design team that started illustrating recipes on a whim one day and have just recently published their first book.
Spend just a few minutes exploring and you’ll discover just how addicting illustrated recipes, like “German Pancakes” can be. Be sure to visit the shop page too, where you can purchase the brand NEW book and enlarged prints and canvases of some of the recipes.
I’ve used Catalog Choice in the past to cancel unwanted catalogs online, but now you have the option of ordering “Mail Stop” envelopes that you simply fill up with junk mail and then return so that someone else can process your stop-mail requests!
If you’re not able to hit the stores on Black Friday (like me) you could spend some time un-selecting unwanted catalogs that bombard our mailboxes this time of year! Learn More Here.
Here’s a sneak peek of some Christmas-giving goodness headed your way. I adore these colorful fingers-free gloves, even though they are a tad expensive —– they’re from designer, Kate Spade. Where else are you going to find something with this attention to design, detail and quality?
In terms of holiday gift ideas, I’m truly saving the best for last.
You know I adore Compendium’s inspiring quote books, journals and more, so I thought I’d share a few NEW favorites and an opportunity for you to SAVE BIG this weekend.
I’ve blogged about Tickle Monster before, but did you know he has a cousin, name Boogie? (I made that up, but the book is real and it’s really quite cute!) Here’s the link: Boogie Monster
