The Sunday Salon

Happy Sunday everyone! Things have been quiet around here for most of the week.  I shudder to think of my Google Reader! I am so thrilled to have a day off today in which to catch up on my blogging and housework.  We were originally going to go get our Christmas tree today but the mud and rain put a stop to that.  I do plan on putting out some decorations today though, so hopefully we can get our tree soon.

My Thanksgiving was great, and filled with the company of my family and my husband’s family, which was wonderful.

The above picture is from my mom’s house on Thanksgiving.  Don’t mind my drunk looking sister on my shoulder.

Black Friday was not as bad as I anticipated–in fact, my co workers and I had a lot of fun dancing around and getting everyone into the holiday spirit.  I love working retail during the holiday season, despite the madness that can ensue.

I hope you all have a great Sunday.  My book club is meeting tonight to discuss Wench, by Dolen Perkins-Valdez, so I am looking forward to that.  I think it will elicit a great discussion!

  1. That’s a huge cat! Great picture! Your GR won’t be bad – it was a very light week for posting!

  2. Wow, that cat is very big! And your Black Friday story is the only positive one I’ve read! Maybe it’s different from someone working the event….


  3. It looks like Patrick ate too much stuffing. 😀

  4. I love the picture! Have fun discussing Wench. I still need to read that one.

  5. I loved Wench, and hope that you guys have a great discussion of it! I love the picture of you and the portly kitty. We have one of those too! Have a happy Sunday!

  6. Looks like Patrick had a nip or two as well 😉

  7. WOW, Patrick looks like “he ate the whole bird”. I had to clear my google reader yesterday –very sad.

  8. You look a lot like my friend Anna in this picture. 😀

  9. I caught up on my Reader last night and it felt really good! Now I can comment on blogs again. Yay! And I loved working retail during the holidays too. It was fun to be busy all of the time instead of having long stretches of standing around and straightening product. And it was fun to help people who didn’t normally shop at our store (it was a music/video store so it was usually grandmas who came in to shop for their grandkids! so cute!).

  10. That’s a big cat!

  11. You and your sister make such a pretty pair (even if she is feeling a bit ‘sleepy’). I’m so glad you had a good weekend; we were going to put up the tree as well, but you’re right. There’s far too much rain and mud. It’s been so mild here in Illinois!

  12. I’m glad Black Friday wasn’t too bad – the news reports made it sound like it was awful! I’m glad you had a great holiday!

  13. Glad your Black Friday wasn’t ridiculous or hideous!

  14. That is a fat cat!! Nice to put a face with the blogger! And what a lovely face it is!

  15. I think that this is the first time I’ve seen a picture of you–great to put a face with a name. 🙂 And that cat!! We had a cat like that when we were growing up. Love it. Glad you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
