Thankful For Safe Travels

The weather this week is pleasant to travel to visit families for Thanksgiving Day.  Though it’s breezy, sunshine is abundant to keep us warm.  Me and my family drove to our folks this afternoon to celebrate the American tradition – Thanksgiving Day.  It’s a celebration of togetherness, blessings, and happy moments.

There are so many things to be thankful for. Besides everyone’s good health and the opportunities to provide food on our tables, we should also be thankful for safety in our daily travels.

We took the country roads going to my in-law’s house in Tyler, Texas.  We liked crossing the bridge at Lake Tawakoni.  A new bridge is under construction the last time we drove through there.  We’d like to see if it’s done now.  But not yet…still finishing the new foundations.  Taking the back roads going to our destination takes a while than taking the Interstate and Toll roads.  But we like it that way sometimes.  We enjoy seeing big green trees and the towns we pass through.

The folks are already busy with the Thanksgiving Day preparation today.  They already started cooking.  The turkey is ready to put in the oven at midnight.  🙂

Wishing you all a Happy Thanksgiving Day from my family to yours.  Safe travels, too.

Black Friday Crowd In Stores

Oh wow!  As usual, the crowd is packed in line in front of the various retail stores nationwide for the Black Friday shopping.  My friend went to Walmart at 10 P.M. and it was the first time she went shopping for Black Friday.  She couldn’t believe how crowded the store is!

Then my MIL teased me about shopping at 4 A.M. because she saw me reading store ads on the papers.  Oh no!  I told her I will just shop online for the red satchel handbag that I saw a while back.  I was tired from the trip (we had Thanksgiving in Whitehouse) so I just sleep more.  Although I want to try going one morning to the Black Friday shopping, it would be nicer if I will do it next time.

I know stores are offering huge deals on electronics, appliances, clothing, accessories, toys…etc.  I want to upgrade my gadgets.  Ah!  So inviting.  But then again, there is still next time.

Sharing And Celebrating The Blessings

It is Friday.  Gloomy.  The breeze is cool.  ‘Feeling lazy.  My husband took an off day today because he has to do some PC troubleshooting.

What am I doing?  Besides watching my little darling running around keeping busy playing with her toys, I am wandering around in cyberspace.  I did my online tasks and now it is time for blog hopping routine.  There are lots of things going on in the blogosphere.  Contests and giveaways are flooding because The Holidays are approaching – Thanksgiving and Christmas.
