Rested Up & Turkey'd Out

That title just about sums it up.
I've had a week off from school and hubby had several days off from work so we're all rested up after a few days of sleeping in. As for the turkey part... I love Thanksgiving food but at the moment I'm all turkey'd out. We made plenty of food and had tons of leftovers which is a good thing because it meant that we had several days of not having to cook. Just reheat and eat but at this point I've had my fill of the bird and all it's trimmings so tonight I'm cooking and we're having hubby's favorite ~ breakfast food.

While resting up and enjoying the holiday I spent time working on things that were NOT on my to-do list.
Do you all have a never-ending to-do list that you work off of everyday?
I do and sometimes it just gets old.
So even though I should have been working on a few Christmas gifts I said what they hay....and crocheted away.
I made more of the easy & simple dish cloths that I mentioned way back HERE. They are so easy to make that I can watch tv and crochet at the same time without screwing up the instructions. Yeah!
Oh, and I also found a few new crochet sites that I'm liking real well so I may have to share those a little later.
The rest of my week was spent shopping in-store and on-line as well as finishing the holiday decorating. I did venture out Thanksgiving night with a friend to shop and it was OK but not so sure I'll do it next year.
People are just CRAZY!
Why go out in that crowd when you can stay at home and shop right from your computer chair and for the most part get just as good of a deal on the same items.

Well I better get back to supper so it will be finished when hubby gets home. Catch you all later.

I feel the same way about that Black Friday shopping...folks are nuts out there...I leave it to my girls, they love it and sometimes close the mall, but they can get some good deals! I had the same for supper tonight...I don't want to see all that stuff again and just think...there's still next month! Have a great week! Hugs...

My fibro. has been so bad I haven't been doing much of anything, I hope it lets up before the kids come home, I have a little one to carry around, LOL!!!

Love the dishcloths and they last so much longer than the ones you buy. Daughter and I hit some Thanksgiving night sales this year; but I'm getting too old to stay up all night! Took me most of the weekend to catch up on my rest!

I stay home on Black Friday too. Much better to shop online and avoid the craze. We had breakfast last night too. :) Ham and eggs. Tonight I'm making a tater tot casserole. Should have thought about making chili since it is cold with rain/snow today.
I also leave my to-do alone sometimes and just do something I want.

Homemade dish cloths are the best!
I haven't made any in awhile.
No more turkey for me!
I shopped on Black Friday once and said I would never do it again.
Enjoy your week!

I love those dish cloths. My mom used to make them and I have so many. They wash really well. No Black Friday for me!!! I actually am thinking about making a turkey, lol... We go to my sons for TD so no leftovers. We have prime rib for Christmas so a turkey sounds pretty good right now. Cheers, LJ
