I've Fallen in a Rut

First things first. Harry pointed out to me - more than once - that I titled yesterdays post "The Old Floks at Home" Yep, I made a type-o. Anyway we are probably pretty close to old floks so I'm leaving it as is.

Nothing notable or exciting to write about today. This seems to be one of those times that I just fall into the old rut and roll along where ever it leads. I don't fall in often but when I do it's deep. I'll slink off, have a pity party and come back strong - just give me a minute.

Today I spent some time reading past posts written by folks I usually follow. As usual I'm impressed that everyone is observant and consistently good at expressing their feelings. A lot of times I seem to have a problem doing the same - wish I could express myself better.

Thanksgiving is planned. Tomorrow is the last minute market visit and if I forget to add something to my list it'll just remain forgotten. I've set my schedule so that I won't be rushed and in a flurry. As usual, I'm doing all the cooking but that's my choice. The girls can use a break from cooking and I can rest any day. (Cheryl, I have the baked pineapple recipe in the que. Thanks for posting it.)

How many of you are planning to go shopping on Black Friday? (the Friday after Thanksgiving) It is called Black Friday because that's the one day of the year that retailers expect to be "in the black" because they expect it to be the biggest shopping day of the year. Color me staying home!

I don't know how many folks will visit my blog during the Holiday so I want to say now that I am picturing each and everyone of you having a fabulous Thanksgiving filled with peace and comfort.

From one old flok to another... I won't be shopping on Friday unless I let my fingers do the walking!

I don't think I will be shopping that day. It is such a madhouse at the after-Thanksgiving sales.

My Mom and I always do the cooking on Thanksgiving too. I hope we didn't forget anything. :S

I don't always express myself well either but I do ramble on my blog OFTEN. :)

Happy Thanksgiving to you sweety!

P.S. The fish are so relaxing to watch. I bet your aquariums are beautiful. Reefs are so pretty and the saltwater fish are such bright colors. I love looking at saltwater fish in the pet stores. You will have to post pictures sometimes of your aquariums.

I didn't even notice the typo. I'm an old flok too.

I've never shopped on Black Friday, but I'm always tempted. The thought gets my competitiveness juice flowing. I've seen some awesome prices for GPS's, but I won't give in to the temptation.

I can't wait to hear how you like the baked pineapple. My cans are lined up on the counter. I'll be making a double and a single recipe. Yum!

I'll be around and blogging during the holiday, so I'll say hi tomorrow too.
