Turkey hangover and It’s Civil War today!

TurkeyI have to say that nothing is better than NOT being out at the malls on Black Friday.  I’m actually happier to wake up to the post-Thanksgiving mess around the house, feeling somewhat miserable from eating too much last night while picking up the dirty placemats and napkins.  Mmmm, that turkey was good!  The other nice surprise today is the cloud cover.  We’re finally experiencing a bit of fall weather.  It’s gloomy and a cool 62 degrees outside.  (Stop it.  I hear you all snickering out there.  If you constantly had 90+ degree-days into November, you’d think 62 was cool too!)  Considering all of our family and friends in the Pacific Northwest have been getting dumped on by rain, we’re fortunate, but I really wouldn’t mind a few rainy days here for us.
