I am just spending the morning cleaning and taking my Halloween stuff down. I need it OUT OF HERE to get ready for Xmas stuff! I got everything dusted, curtains cleaned, slipcovers are in the dryer... should I start sneaking things o ut?!?
Minus getting stuck in the downpour, it sounds like you have a good day planned! You reminded me that I need to go OUT with the Halloween & IN with Thanksgiving! I can't quite sneak Christmas in just yet...except for my Countdown to Christmas...which, by the way - why don't I have that out yet??? That is what I will do 1st thing when I get home!!! I'm slipping!!! Enjoy your day!

I love it too. Especially the Holiday issues. I think this Thanksgiving one is an awesome one!! Did you see the Sausage Pan Pizza recipe - the lady won (I think it's Jimmy Deans) grand prize winner for her recipe? She is from a neighboring town here. One of my best friends knows her! That was cool to see!!!

Evening! I hope everybody 's Friday is going well. Weekend is here again. Raining a lot here today. We were very luck that it was dry for the trick or treaters last night. We had a really good night.

We have spent the day replacing the cistern for the toilet, well Mr. Festive has anyway , I just helped.

Tonight we are kicking of November with Arthur Christmas. It's the first time we are watching it so I am looking forward to it and I hope it's good.

Have a fun Friday everybody!

Not many trick-or-treaters last night, but I passed the time ripping more Christmas CDs and syncing about 1400 Christmas songs to my iPhone. 'Tis the season!
