Over the river, through the woods and beyond

To Mike's house we went for our usual Thanksgiving extravaganza.  It was delightful as always.  Every year I marvel at our 20 and 30 somethings turn into grownups before our very eyes.  And now we have a third generation represented yesterday in the form of Elise and her on the way baby brother or sister.  As usual dinner was big enough to feed an army, the table was filled to overflowing with food, love, laughter, toasts, general good cheer and 24 people.  I LOVE IT.

Today I resisted the urge to head to Purls of Joy for what I'm sure was a black Friday yarn sale. Amazing how you can resist things when you have to money!  Instead we finished cleaning out the cabin where a tenant moved out.  I use the term finished loosely as the carpets are so disgusting we have to rip them out as well.  A task for another day and someone not plagued by allergies

She left EVERYTHING.  And I do mean everything up to and including a full refrigerator.  I swept the kitchen floor, stood back to admire my work and concluded you couldn't even tell I'd touched it.  This a floor that was installed less than 6 months ago.

While someone tackled the big things like bed frames, furniture and mattresses I raked, yes raked the carpet.  We managed to get everything out of the place in 2 1/2 hours then I rushed home an took a shower.  I was tempted to toss my clothes in the garbage but they went in the laundry instead.

Now it's time to load up the dumpster, drop acceptable toys at the Salvation Army and burn the rest.

Now I remember why we decided to sell the 30 acres!

So how went your black Friday?
