as the holidays approach...

our weekend was warm, but cloudy...
we got the outdoor Christmas lights and greenery up this weekend...
and I did turn them on Saturday night to check them...
and left them on...

with someone protesting greatly...
so he unplugged them Sunday morning...
party pooper...
what's a few extra days?

he did take me out for one last walk at the park Saturday afternoon...

can't you just see yourself sitting there with a rod in your hands?

we trimmed a couple of trees up on Sunday morning and by noon...
the rain had started in...

I so wanted to go for ride in the country...
but its deer season...
and we tend to stick to the highways until that's over...

just in case someone let a city boy or two hunt on their property...
you never know with them...

and then there is this wonderful surprise on the square...

someone actually decorated a building and they did it well...

this is where the newspaper office was...
and she moved down the street this fall into the old doctor's office..
and suddenly, there was someone painting the outside of this...

I love the bright yellow door...

and this moose...
so now I need to find out who bought it...
who fixed it up...
and what they are planning on doing with the building...
like maybe a fun shop that sells this kind of thing...
wouldn't that be grand?

I am sure these guys know all about it...
they live just down the street...

so we asked them to tell us all about the pretty new building...

they were just too busy to give us the time of day...

so I guess I will have to do it the old fashioned was and make a few phone calls in the morning...
someone has to know...
small towns are like that...
so- that's the weekend in a nutshell...
get it?  pun snuck in there...

are you going bonkers getting ready for the big dinner???
got your house cleaned?
floors scrubbed?
bathrooms up to par?
got your turkey thawing yet???
well, we are having our dinner on Wednesday, since Craig has to work Thursday and Friday...
and the we will be setting up the toy drive on the weekend...
am I ready?
nope...
do I care?
nope...
because it will happen whether I am ready or not...
so I am going to skip the whacked out part this year and just let it happen...
;0)
just have the kids coming and their girlfriends...
a whole whoppin' 6 people...
I can do that blind folded...
;0)

Happy Monday Tete! Your photos are always such a joy to look at! The squirrels are so fat! Do you think they are gearing up for a cold winter? We do the same here in southwest missouri during deer season, we stay out of the woods and dirt roads. We have to drive slow at dusk too as they can appear out of nowhere right on front of your car!

Hooray for whoever is fixing up that empty store! Glad to see any store, filled again. No matter how long or short a time, it has been empty.

And whoever it is, looks as if they are artistic. Or just plain able to make things look pretty.

Hope however it is, makes a go of it!!!

No thanksgiving panic here! The family gathers at one of our son's houses now days.

But no matter where it is held, my husband has to make his turkey stuffin'! And his Newman's Creamed Potatoes. :-)

and I'll probably be asked for my Apple Pie.

But no house to fix up!!!!!!! ,-)

Wonderful pictures! There use to be a little place we bought stuff down by the diner. She always had Christmas tins and little trinkets. I hope you get a little shop.
Happy Thanksgiving!
