WEDNESDAY HODGEPODGE

 
Volume 199
Thank you Joyce.....

1. Besides U.S. Thanksgiving, it's also National Game and Puzzle Week...what game have you played most recently, and who were you with? Have you worked a puzzle of any kind in the past week?
The would have been Scrabble in Mammoth Lakes with Mark in the Summer. I'm not good at Crosswords but I do buy the Super Easy books sometimes. Nothing this week! 

2. What is one place you were thankful for this year?
That would have to be our home!

3. Take a nap, watch football, go for an after dinner walk, or hit the stores...whichONE is on your must-do list for Thanksgiving day? For those of you playing along who aren't in the US, answer as it relates to any big holiday meal.
I think a walk would be great. No shopping for me! 

4. Besides Thanksgiving, what's your favorite home cooked meal?
Lasagna, Chili, Prime Rib......

5. What product from an infomercial would you most like to own?

I never watch commercials anymore so I don't know what is currently selling. 

6. Christmas shopping? Have you begun? Finished? Will you shop on Black Friday? How do you feel about stores opening on Thanksgiving Day? What percentage of your Christmas shopping is done online?

I've begun shopping. I am not done because I just can't seem to get into it this year. No I do not shop on Black Friday. Nothing should be open on Thanksgiving Day. Probably 80% of my shopping is done online. 

7. What are you most grateful for that adds beauty to your everyday life?

I am grateful for my dog Miss Skye B who loves me unconditionally. I am grateful for the mountains, the sky, the clouds, the moon and the stars. 

8. Insert your own random thought here.

Well we're having dinner with our neighbors so I won't be changing into my yoga pants I guess : ) Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day Debby!

Happy Thanksgiving, Debby. I agree that the stores should be closed on Thanksgiving day and NO black Friday shopping for me either! :))

ha ha, i wear my fat pants daily 365 days a year... Skye is so sweet.. my favorite home made if i don't have to cook it, it grilled burgers by bob. I am thankful for Walmart and their cheap prices and that i had a car to drive there at 6 am this morning and the money to pay for the food.

I liked your random thought, Debby :) I like to play Scrabble too; I play the equivalent of it online and spend way too much time with it though I'm starting to get a bit bored with it. I think playing games or doing crossword puzzles or word searches, whatever it is to stimulate the brain, is a good thing for it :)

Happy Thankisgiving!

Miss Skye B is a beautiful dog!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Home is my favorite place, too. Your dog is so very cute. One of my favorite things about fall and winter is pulling out the fat pants!! They are just so comfy and hide lots of stuffing!!!

I have finished my shopping except for my grandmother, but she just likes one of those Hickory Farms assortments so she's easy. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Debby, I love your random thought! Isn't it the truth?! I love my fat pants :)

Wishing you and yours a Happy and blessed Thanksgiving,

Debby,

I love this list, especially your quote which is so true. I don't mind stores being open on Thanksgiving because I've worked holidays in the past. At least they compensate those who do with a bit more pay which can make such a difference to families struggling this time of the year. Plus doctors, nurses, service people like fire, police and the military don't get a choice. I'm not a Black Friday shopper, but enjoy seeing some people get some incredible deals when they can. I'm like you, doing most of my shopping online instead. With Amazon Prime, I get 2 day shipping free with my memberships so what's the point dealing with crowds on Friday anymore.

Hope you and your family, have a wonderful and truly blessed Thanksgiving!!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

I enjoy playing Scrabble but it's been so long since I've played that board game. I do play Words with Friends in my iPad though.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Ginny Marie said...

I love going for walk after Thanksgiving dinner! It's supposed to be really cold tomorrow, though, so I'm not sure we'll actually go outside. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Secret Agent Woman said...

I would have walked but it was unpleasantly chilly, so I opted for a nap instead!

Chatty Crone said...

No shopping for me either - I feel those employees ought to have the whole day off! Happy Thanksgiving.
