And I'm back! I hope you all enjoyed the guest strips and had a good week. I had a really lovely Thanksgiving and Chanukah. Due to circumstances I will reveal later, we didn't go to my Uncle's house up in Massachusetts this year, but celebrated Thanksgiving in Jersey with a friend who couldn't get reasonably priced tickets to go home to Ohio. I did all the cooking, which was a first and I was really pleased with how it all came out. I even used the fancy wedding linens, which I had yet to have occasion for.
Chanukah was eight nights of fried foods, story telling, candle lighting and present-y goodness. By the end the four menorahs we were lighting were like little bonfires. Seriously, I took to reading after the lighting, because the room got so bright.
