Thursday chat

First, I would like to wish everyone a happy, healthy, and safe Thanksgiving. It will be Doug and I this year so I’m looking forward to spending the day working on orders, nibbling before a delicious Thanksgiving meal, and reading/watching TV. For many, many, many years I had held Thanksgiving dinner at my home, which was lovely, but the amount of work involved became far more than the enjoyment of the day which defeats the purpose, in my mind. Our door is always open and we will welcome anyone in who would like a comfortable meal in a very relaxed setting, but my days of the large get-together is past.



So. Black Friday. Who among us is braving the craziness and who is staying in? I suppose that this goes along with the large family gatherings, but I tend not to leave the house at all on the entire holiday weekend unless I must do. All of my toys are here, I can’t imagine anything being worth risking life and limb in the massive crowds and distracted drivers. If you are a fearless soul and are setting out tomorrow to do your Christmas shopping, then I wish you the very best. I will be sitting in the living room, in front of the fire, knitting and drinking tea. 🙂


  1. I’m working in the store tomorrow. I love the hustle and bustle of Black Friday! But it’s a small fair trade store, so totally different kind of vibe. Happy Thanksgiving!

    • Thank you and that does sound like a good place to work on Good Friday. I hope that it’s a good day for all of you . What kind of a store is it?

      • It’s a non-profit Fair Trade store:

      • What a wonderful shop! I’ll be back to it. I’ve bookmarked it. Love the jewelry.
