Doing backflips of Joy!

A DEAR friend, with 2 chilluns of her own, picked up my two for an out-of-the-house playdate.
The house is
quiet
I am wrapping Christmas presents, and starting on my cards.
For the first time in 6 years, we might send holiday cards.
Might
I hired a team working on a neighbor's house to do fall yard cleanup. It is
done.
We are going to have a 70 degree Thanksgiving.
Very Very Strange

It's 4:30 and the children are just now home.
More later.

WOW!

Sounds like Christmas almost came a little early for you!

You sound so very content. It's a lovely thing.

It's amazing how much you can get done with no kids around.

Happy, Happy Thanksgiving to you and your sweet boys - and your husband too, of course!

Isn't it wonderful when you get a quiet day to yourself?!

Happy thanksgiving to you and yours.

Again I'm struck how "strange" this internet/blog thing can be. Here I am reading your blog about Thanksgiving while I sit in my home commenting while I have a rugby league grand final between Australia and New Zealand in the background!

Like Suse said, it's always nice to get a few moments to oneself.

I also love the Canadian "about" (your previous post). When I hear it I always have a go at trying to mimic it. I say something in the order of "aboot" - said with an Aussie accent :-) I think it comes close!
