Happy Aftermath

I should have taken some pictures of our Thanksgiving but I didn't.  I had so many more things to occupy my time, I didn't feel like it.  Sometimes, I think the camera interferes with company time.  I was cooking and then eating and then visiting.  Our only little one was Litsy who was two.  She was fun to play with.  My two brothers and families and my mom were here at my house.  My daughters and son were home from college.  We had a beautifully brined 23 lb. turkey which I lifted several times out of the oven to baste.  We had two different dressings, gravy, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, corn, green bean casserole, broccoli/cheese casserole, orange mandarin salad, Waldorf salad, cranberry sauce, rolls, and 5 different pies.  We had a good time and I showed my brother my blog.  :D  We even got a little snow in the evening!

Haiku Friday-Black Friday

Hello Black Friday
Getting up very early
A shopper's delight

Sales person's nightmare
Getting up very early
Have to face the frenzied crowd

People rushing by
To long lines at the check-out
Jostling, bustling folks

Is it really worth
The time, trouble, and effort
To get the discount?

Retailers love it
Most employees deplore it
Shoppers adore it
