Take up the challenge! Erase my answers, enter yours, and tag a few people. Use the 1st letter of your name to answer each of the following. They have to be real places, names, things.. nothing made up! Try to use different answers if the person in front of you had the same 1st initial. You CAN’T use your name for the boy/girl name question & you can use the same answer twice.


BOY NAME: Charlie



OCCUPATION: Choir director

A COLOUR: coral


BEVERAGE : coffee

FOOD : chocolate


A PLACE : Charlotte

REASON FOR BEING LATE: car wouldn’t start



So, how was your Thanksgiving?  Ours was simply delightful.  We stayed home, the Knight and the fur-girls napped, I knitted, and everyone was happy.  There was a HOUSE marathon on, so what more could you ask for? 

No, you can’t see my knitting.  Most of it was a VERY special project for the holidays.  I’m rather pleased with myself, so not sharing it a bit of a hardship for me too.  I did grind away on my guild‘s KAL stole, so I’m feeling pretty confident that I’ll have it done in time for the holiday party.

throwout21Oh!  I also owe a purge report.   Since I’ve admitted I’m a packrat, I’ll be counting in groups, bags, boxes, etc., at least until about Dec. 30th when I realize I need to pick up the pace to make it to 50!

  1. One crock’s worth of kitchen utensils
  2. One bag of books for the used book store
  3. One box of random things that I haven’t used in the past year for GoodWill
  4. One bag of old jars from the refrigerator
  5. One bag of out of date baking supplies from the cabinet
  6. Bag of trash from the Knight’s corner in the living room
  7. Bag of torn and well-used dog toys
  8. Bag of junk mail never opened
  9. Bag of wrapping paper scraps I saved to use but Sissy chewed on and/or the Knight set other things down on top of them
Yes, but Sissy only wore it in the house

Yes, but Sissy only wore it in the house

Now, in my defense, most of these bags were those plastic grocery bags, or a brown paper bag, thanks much.  I also found Mugsy’s devil costume, so that and the fur-girls’ costumes from this year have been packed away.

In case you’re wondering, I haven’t found the Palm.  I’m pretty sure we’d have noticed Sissy toting it around, so I’m betting it’s in a safe place.  (That means so safe I’ll never find it again.)

What does your weekend hold?  I think we’re going to try a new steak place near us tonight, and then tomorrow’s the fam-damily dinner.  I’m making corn pudding, cranberry sauce, yeast rolls and as a surprise (MJ doesn’t know how to find my blog), a strawberry cake.  I’ll be up baking tomorrow morning.  I think that’s about it, other than more knitting, purging and enjoying the dogs.

And you?

    I’ll have to do that scattergories sometime! Fun!

    I made persimmon cookies and sweet potatoe casserole! My aunt and grandma cook sooooo much food you’d think they were feeding an army and not just 10 people! Wonderful time though!

    Have a great weekend!

    I’m glad you had a nice day yesterday. I thought of you. Guess what I did…yep, Aunt Bar’s with Kathy. It was, um, different. Kath and I will have a “real” TG dinner on Sunday, and invite some of my friends I think. But I did get some knitting done too. Congrats on the decluttering too!

  3. HA ha…that’s what my office de-clutter will look like: A bag of this, a box of that! Sounds like a wonderfully enjoyable day was yours yesterday. Good. You deserved it. My weekend? Saturday looks quiet, Sunday, not so much. We’re supposed to decorate the church for the holidays, and most likely, only a small handful of folks will show up. Ah well…

    My weekend remains quiet, cooking, sewing, knitting, dog walking. Prepping for vacation. I’m working on the girls stockings and JB just reminded me that I should leave one for the dog walker 🙂 g

    I’m going to do as little as possible this weekend! I do have to head into work for a few, no biggie. Then I need to be knitting!

    Good for you with the purging!!!! Any size bag leaving is a good thing! 🙂
