Autumn to Winter
Things are looking very different now. The colorful beauty of Fall has turned several shades of brown with some patches of grey here and there.
Thanksgiving was nice with my sister and brother-in-law here. Since they were leaving to go back to Ohio this morning, Patty and I went out last night and enjoyed a Blackberry Sangria ~ we made a toast to our brother, Patrick, and took some time to reminisce.
The Blackberry Sangria? Oh my! There are no words! These days, I'm just a once-in-a-while drinker, but I think I could handle one of those Sangrias every evening.
Patty and Mom worked on getting Mom's Christmas tree and Nativity up on the days following Thanksgiving. I tried to get caught up on some things and did a little Christmas shopping over the weekend. I refuse to go out on Black Friday. There is no sale worth fighting those crowds for. Sunday wasn't bad.
They headed north early this morning and now it is too quiet here.
Casey and Amanda are coming for Christmas. I am very excited to see them and have them here for several days.
Hopefully, each of you had a pleasant Thanksgiving Day and shared some time with those you love.
