That is so smart to plan meals like this. I might have to try this idea! Star, I am thinking of mailing your ornaments this week. I remember the troubles that Undrtkr had with the MMC cookbook, so I want to make sure you get this package! I will let you know when I get down to the post office.

Good morning everyone!

I wasn't able to stop by yesterday. What a busy day! I did, however, hold my own celebrations for the fact that it was one month until the Christmas Season! 30 today and seeing 29 tomorrow will be nothing short of extraordinary!

Despite Thanksgiving being today, we celebrated yesterday - as I believe most people do because of traveling, etc. It was a delicious dinner filled with turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, vegetables, and of course, pumpkin pie, pumpkin cheesecake, apple crisp and a few other delicious deserts. I could barely control myself! All in all, I think it is good that meals like that only happen about twice per year - at least for me... Of course, I will be looking forward to the next one - Christmas Day - even more!

72 days until Christmas Day?! I think I will have to make a massive effort to treasure every inkling of Christmas I see from now on. Not that I don't already, but I think I will have to make an even bigger/conscious effort of appreciation. Hopefully I will be able to go to the Rideau Centre sometime this week to see if I can find some Christmas displays! I'm sure that The Bay may have their Christmas Street on display very shortly!

OK. Well, Kim and I have to drive back to Ottawa shortly. I hope everyone in Canada enjoyed their Thanksgiving and everyone south of the border has done the same for their Columbus Day! There are no remaining holidays until the beginning of the Christmas Season, although some may get Remembrance/Veterans' Day off. Such a wonderful feeling. Our favourite Season will be in here in 30 days!

Have a great Monday, everyone!

Happy Thanksgiving Day to all in Canada---and anybody who's celebrating in the U.S., too!

I've been thinking ... maybe Made and Star should watch Christmas movies together to keep them off their feet! Maybe we could send food in to them to keep 'em sitting down.

Seawaters, I hope you're feeling better today. I worry about you when you're not well.

We're both off from work today, so we're working on our own projects---Mr. is downstairs cleaning and checking a film he just bought, and I'm working on various Christmas-prep projects. Time already seems short! Later on we need to go out and order a new stovetop. Our current one was in the house when we bought it, and one burner is pooping out, so it's time for a replacement before holiday cooking begins. It's a GORGEOUS October day out there, so it'll be nice to get out of the house.

MerryCarey, there was some vintage horror on last night. TCM ran Nosferatu and it is now waiting on my DVR for some nice October viewing.

I wore my Rodgers jersey today, everyone in the store had Green Bay gear on! It was pretty cool.

I still haven't eaten dinner, so I'm going to go fix some.

Hope you all have a great evening!!

That game was a Love / hate game for me, since these are my two most favorite teams, I loved it that the Packers won and I hated it that the Ravens lost.... Oh what is a football fan to do.....I believe it's another excuse to stuff my face with chicken wings, crab soup and have pie for dessert~
