I can't tell you how wonderful it was to have 4 days in a row completely off of work. It was fantastic!
Friday we began decorating for Christmas. Me, Jackson, Caitlin, Oliver and Emerson all worked together. Apparently all decisions required a group effort. No matter which room I traveled to, the entourage came with. We have a small house so it was a little overwhelming at times, but I appreciated the concern.
Jack and Cait thought it necessary to chew on any greenery and bat any ornaments. I'm sure they were just testing everything out to make sure it was ok...... Jack was so exhausted from his supervisory duties that he collapsed in the nearest box - Caity bugs box. Thankfully she was too tired to kick him out so all went well.
I haven't finished, but I was able to accomplish about 90 percent.
Did any of you shop on "black Friday"? I've only participated in that craziness once. That was enough. I give a lot of credit to those who can do it. I'm just not a - stand in a large group of people and fight for the same thing - kind of girl. Just can't do it. We stayed away from the stores this weekend, opting instead for the farmers market and apple orchard as our outing. I did a little shopping online and, thankfully, am almost finished.
We were blessed with a little bit of snow misting through the air. It was truly beautiful. I'm happy we didn't have any accumulation, but I do love to watch it come down.
The chickens are back to laying, however, we've discovered we have a chicken who is eating eggs. Not good. There's not much you can do to stop this bad habit except, for lack of a better way of saying it, make chicken soup. Today she ate every single one of them, leaving bits of shells so we could figure out exactly how many we should have had. The next step we have is to try and figure out which it is. I believe it's one of the newer girls since this just started happening as they began laying. If it were one or two eggs a day I could live with it, but not every single one. Just can't happen.
I must get back to the kitchen......homemade Wheat Thins
and Blueberry Muffins for morning are on the agenda!
I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and a great weekend!
