1. Great Thanksgiving day with family on Mike's side.  Our spread was as good as all the others I've seen pictured.

2. Time with some sweet little great-nieces who aren't sure what to think of me, but sure did enjoy the stickers and tablets I brought for them.  Here they are watching their daddy shoot skeet.

3. Anytime we are at my brother-in-law's house for Thanksgiving, shooting skeet is always part of the afternoon activities.  We haven't been there for several years, so we all enjoyed being out on the field either shooting or watching.

4. A two-day work week!!

5. I did NOT get out on Black Friday.  One of the things that I am grateful for, is that I neither need nor want anything that requires getting out in that mess!!

Happy Thanksgiving to all American readers - also the Canadian ones even though their celebration was earlier.

Friday's Fave Five 11-9-18

1. Autumn decorations on the mantle!  First year we've had a mantle; therefore, the first year we've had decorations.  

2. I am doing something new this weekend - participating in a craft fair.  Not really me; not really something I have time to pursue, but a church nearby is having one this weekend and I decided to participate.  I've visited it in the past, and it's in a big gym with lots of atmosphere, so it should be something enjoyable and relaxing.  I've enjoyed getting some things ready for it.

3. My parents gave us the shepherd's hook from their back yard, so now I have more feeders than ever outside the kitchen windows.  Makes me happy.  This little shot is of a female purple finch that has been visiting.  We have lots of house finches, but purple finches are much less common.

4. Productive week at school.  Exhausted by the time I get home, but the paper grading has been under control lately.  That's a bigger deal than one may think.

5. This is a funny.  The teacher across the hall took this as proof why 7th graders need us.  :-)
