Long and Lazy

Hope everyone had a good weekend. Hope you all have full bellies, plenty of leftovers and are still sane if you went shopping this weekend. Did you hear about the guy who got trampled to death by shoppers? Ridiculous. Is the new talking Elmo really that important? Seriously.

We had dinner at out house on Wednesday night for my in-laws. My MIL hasn't been feeling too well, so she appreciated the peace and quiet and the ability to stretch out on the couch after dinner, while eating chocolate chip pecan pie. I was in the kitchen from 12-9pm. I made the best turkey breast I have ever eaten, mashed sweet potatoes, broccoli rice casserole, creamed spinach (which I forgot about in the microwave!) egg gravy, dinner rolls and 2 chocolate chip pecan pies (recipe to come) and artichoke spinach dip. I was exhausted but it was well worth it. What did you make or eat?

On Thursday we went to my aunts house for a late lunch. it was nice to not have to do all the cooking and cleaning. Although I do have to thank Mr. H for cleaning and doing laundry while I was cooking. He also put up all the lights on the house yesterday and today. They look wonderful, so thank you honey!

Today, a friend and I went to the ceramic shop to make and paint ornaments and "sugar cookies". They're going to be so cute. I'll leave you with a little sneak peak. We had to roll the clay, cut out the shapes then paint them. We even made little plates and mini mugs of cocoa. Well, I made them, but it was her idea :-) Hopefully we'll get them back soon so I can show you.

How was your long weekend?

Mmmm...Thanksgiving for me basically is the free pass for me (as a vegetarian) to eat as many carbs as I could possibly want. No tofurkey for me, thanks...

I had:
mashed potatoes
sweet potatoes
cranberry jelly
and rolls.

Oh, and dessert--boiled custard and apple pie.

MMMMMMMMMmmmmm...mouth is watering just thinking about it.

My long weekend was good except for being rudely interrupted WHILE IN THE SHOWER for a fire alarm at 6:50 this morning. Nothing like running outside into the cold in only a towel, bathrobe, and WET HAIR.

I wanted to say thank you for the stone. It is beautiful and I am "hopeful" that it'll inspire me on those icky "pit" days. Thank you again. Glad you had a nice long week.

You know, every year there is a trampling story. So sad. When are the stores going to wise up and not let people in like that?

Love the cookies!

Too cute!!!
Thank you so much for my stone and the 'hope'! *hugs*

My weekend was sucky because I was a little depressed all weekend for some reason.
