CATCHING UP

We had a lovely Thanksgiving over at Adam and Gabby's. As soon as we walked in the door James went right over for Gramps to pick him up. They are best buddies. Of course we had rain and it poured there and back which wasn't fun at all. 
 His first turkey dinner! 

On Monday we picked up James at Gabby's sisters house. Adam and Gabby planned to go away for the weekend but since we had rain they cancelled their trip. However Denise still wanted James to come over so they dropped him off there on Saturday evening. 

They planned on going away for a night but as it turned out their dog Roxy got sick and had to go to the emergency vet at 2 am in the middle of the night. So they didn't go away but we still went on Monday morning to pick him up and take him to their house which was the original plan. Roxy has kennel cough. 

It was fun to be with him for a few hours and we ended up ordering in lunch with Adam and Gabby.  These two photos are from  Monday. 
 Peek a boo!

What James really wants to be doing here is slamming the door, his new favorite thing, however they now have guards up that protect him from doing that. 

I still haven't put up my decorations but I have gotten most of my Christmas shopping done and need to get the out of town gifts mailed around the 16th. I just haven't been in the mood at all to decorate. It will come. 

I'm going to change things up this year and not put some things out because there are other things that I definitely want out but need to set them up in a higher place now so James can't get at them. So the items that are normally in a higher spot will wait until next year. 

We also have a nice pretty new white gate to keep him away from the tree!

TUESDAY 4 MEME


Shopping Days

What do you think of discounts and sales?

I love a sale. It is rare for me to buy anything at full price! 

What's the biggest bargain you've found?

Most of the time I buy after Christmas for extra small gifts to give out. I did find something cute online at Pier One . It's a little lantern ornament with a tree inside that lights up. It was buy one get one free so I bought six of them! I will attach them to a few gifts. 

What do you think of shopping days like Black Friday?


I do not go out on Black Friday but I do shop online for a few things. Mainly PJ's at Macy's for everyone in the family. 

What are the good and bad things about shopping malls and shopping online?

Truthfully I haven't shopped much at any mall in years, mainly because it's just too hard for me to do with my COPD. I prefer to shop online. 

Obviously having to return something isn't fun when you have shopped online. Also you always have the risk of your credit card being stolen.
