Follow Friday – Black Friday

26 Nov

Today is the day my family celebrates our Thanksgiving. It has always worked out better for us to celebrate on a Friday, which is nice because it leaves Thursday open to celebrate with Anthony’s family or to get prepared for the big dinner. Since we’ve moved to this house we’ve had our Thanksgiving celebration here. I’m betting Jupiter and Poppy are going to get very acquainted with the inside of the garage today, as they never can seem to leave us alone when there’s food around.

Poor Anthony is very, very sick. He caught a cold several days ago but still went to work, commuting to the Bay Area and working in the freezing cold. I’m hoping this long weekend will give him a chance to recuperate.

I hope this weekend finds you all, American or otherwise, content and happy.

What is Follow Friday? It’s a Twitter meme that I have taken a couple steps further.  See my nomination for a Shorty Award for Follow Friday here. You can read more Follow Friday goodness here. Learn more about it in my FAQ.
