How are you, my blogger buds? For those that celebrate Thanksgiving, did you have a wondrous one? I trust so. Ours certainly was, with some Griswold moments thrown in. But first I have to say I've got the best blogger buds in the blogosphere. Look what was waiting for me when we got home from Philly.
I mentioned that I couldn't find cinnamon tea and my own special genie in the form of CJ at CJ and Ink ordered and sent me this. You rock, CJ. Thanks so much.
If that wasn't enough of a surprise Rockin Ro sent this.
Look at what prices were back in the day. A car for 4K and a home for 54K. Can you believe it? This is really going to date me but I can remember my parents picking up an old house with no plumbing, no kitchen cabinets, and only one bedroom for 3K. Luckily my dad was a carpenter, but I've wandered way off topic. Thank you, Ro, your memory is way better than mine:)
AND to the blogger buds that sent cards and holiday wishes, thank you so much. I'm thankful for each and everyone of you.
ON to the holiday weekend, which was lovely. We arrived in Philly Thursday evening and wonder of wonders found a parking spot right in front of our daughter's and SIL's row house. Talk about lucky. We should have bought a lottery ticket.
The next morning we took a walk in one of the city parks. Before we left the baby girl served french toast, soaked overnight in custard then topped with brulee. Oh my. It was so good.
As you can see, there's still plenty of color in the park. Does anybody know what the shrub with the purple berries is?
Then later, our delicious dinner.
Followed by this the next morning.
After breakfast we headed for Longwood Gardens. Oh my Cod, it was cold. I wore my NC jacket down but packed my Philly coat. Thank goodness. Pictures to follow next week.
Now I want to hear all about your week. Did you celebrate Thanksgiving? Walk? Eat too much? Inquiring minds want to know.
I just received an online advent calendar from Birgit at Created by BB. Thanks so much, Birgit, can't wait to get it downloaded.
