We've been home for a week or so. Hubby went off on a trip with our eldest son. I stayed home and moped. Well, only for a couple of days. I guess I was decompressing. Or something. Anyway, I got on my computer to look up a couple of things and ended up working on my research. I should always do that when I'm feeling out of sorts because shortly I am all into the research and feeling my oats again!
Today we are going to Wildhorse Casino in Pendleton so Hubby can play in a KENO tournament. I'm meeting my Sister Dear, Patti, for dinner and to give her her birthday gifts. Her birthday is the 21st, same day as our grandson, Kooper. I have a special surprise for her! I'll tell you about it "later." (It's a secret for now.) She lives in eastern Oregon and this is a good meeting place for us.
Winter is here, methinks. It's cold outside! And yesterday the wind blew. No sign of that 4-letter-word starting with an "S" yet. (Thank goodness.) We have had "that" on Thanksgiving before but hopefully not again this year.
I've been online shopping while Hubby was away, tee hee! I love getting the packages in the mail, it's kind of like Christmas that way. Yesterday I received a restaurant creamer to add to my collection. I had an Etsy gift certificate from Zach and Rebecca for my birthday. I ordered an awesome necklace, some ribbons for my crafting and the creamer. Thanks, Zach and Rebecca. I love my goodies. It was really sweet of you! I did order some other things online. Its that time of the year, isn't it?
We're looking forward to Thanksgiving dinner with our children and grandchildren. We always have a lot of fun when we get together. We are blessed with a large family! 27 grands (including fiances, significant others and spouses) and six children with six spouses. Including us, that equates to 41 of us. Not everyone is always there, but still a large crowd, wouldn't you say?
Ta ta for now,
