Random Five Friday

Five randoms for the final Friday in November.

1.) The skies cleared later in the afternoon, but our Thanksgiving Day began with clouds and a few showers.


2.) We had a nice holiday.  In keeping with tradition, Marshall joined us for breakfast.  We keep it simple.


3.)  On a recent trip to T.J. Maxx, I found this cute little jingle bell tree and placed it in my cart.  For some reason, as I walked through the store,  I was reminded of our horse drawn sleigh rides….?

4.) Motor Man’s allergies have been especially bothersome lately.  Hmmm…could have something to do with all this going on in our area…

5.)  You won’t catch me in the Black Friday crowds today.  But, I will be participating in Small Business Saturday tomorrow on our little Main Street.


Care to share your randoms?  How was your Thanksgiving?  Plans for your weekend?

  1. It was rainy here for Thanksgiving too, but we had a wonderful time with family. That jingle bell tree is adorable! What a cute find. And like you, I’m staying as far away from the Black Friday madness as possible.

  2. Love our randomness – and I too like to keep it simple!

  3. Good morning my friend. Lo v e the jingle bell tree! I could not have been able to resist either. IN talking about Beezy, at least we are able to release our beloved pets from pain and suffering. I know Beezy was your favorite, your face lights when you speak of him. GLAD you are supporting Smithfield Saturday. If I did not have plans with family, I would be alongside you. Through you I have really come to love Smithfield. GOOD weekend.

    I am not a Black Friday shopper either. Nothing out there I need or want that bad!! So glad you had a nice Thanksgiving. We went up to Connie’s ( Chuck was feeling well enough) and had a wonderful family time. We have so very much to be thankful for. Love the Jingle Bell Tree!!

  10. Love that boat picture! I went in three stores today; none were crowded. But I stayed away from really popular places.

  11. Happy Thanksgiving Dianna. Dropping in to say hello and share in your holiday traditions.

  12. I hope your Thanksgiving was a good one.
    I love the jingle bells. I agree they remind me of a horse drawn sleigh.
    I try not to go shopping the weekend after Thanksgiving. I admire the folks that enjoy that and have the where-with-all to tolerate the crowds.
    I hope MM feels better soon.
