Who Me? Missing?

I have been in an Etsy funk for the last few days. I don't know what came over me but I have spent my days either shopping the miles and miles of Etsy pages or sleeping. I do fit in a visit to my uncle and aunt most days as well. I seem to have finally noticed and done some snapping out of my Etsy problems as of today (Not one peek at the place so far today). It is not even like I am buying anything. I have made a total of two purchases is the whole week-long Etsy extravaganza. The first was some vintage knitting books (some of which are a gift) and the other was four vintage clothing patterns. I am really digging the vintage clothing thing lately and got a couple of skirt patterns and two dress patterns (from the 50's and 60's. Now I just need to stop looking at the stupid website and make something!!

The weight has been good.

The restriction has been good.

I have been taking my iron and vitamins like a good little girl.

My head just needs a little straightening out :)

By the way Thanksgiving went off quite nicely. The array of foods selected to meet the historical needs of each attendee were excellent. I had bits and tastes of each thing but not too much of one thing. We had a nice uncomplicated visit with friends and family and it was all nice.

For the first time David, Grace and I did a big black friday shopping adventure. It was crazy busy and I don't think I will do it again but it was good to get out and experience the hedonistic commercialism of the day :) We are almost ready to mail both of the two parcels we send off with Christmas gifts to family afar early. I now have to get a Christmas letter written and cards done and can then coast into presents for my daughters, husband and grandson.

I don't think Black Friday is too bad as long as you go later in the day. I went around 10:00 am and it was still busy but no one tried to brain me for my boots. :)

Glad to see ya back!
