As promised, the weather has smiled on us for the last few days, with sunshine and warmer days. The pinewoods were just beautiful when we walked there on Friday morning.
I took advantage of the nice weather to finish putting away the last of my Summer planters and generally clear the decks for Winter. I refuse to put up Christmas decorations until after Thanksgiving, but am tempted to string some outside lights while I can do so without numbed and frozen fingers. I just won’t turn them on until after Thursday!
Thanksgiving is bearing down on us, and the dreaded Black Friday is much in the news. We have always made it a practice to lay low on Black Friday. I am subject to panic attacks, especially when hemmed in by crowds, and have no desire to get caught up in the craziness.
