We had a lovely Thanksgiving - so quiet and peaceful - but so much fun. It was just me, my hubby and our youngest son. Dinner was so good - if I do say so myself! The day was spent watching football, relaxing, knitting for me of course and playing trivial pursuit. This was hilarious - it was the original version so probably form the 80's - and we had so much fun.
Friday we had a houseful - our oldest son and his wife spent the day along with my niece. Doesn't sound like a houseful but in our tiny house with two dogs thrown in - take my word for it - it was a houseful. We laughed and gabbed, ate a yummy dinner of shrimp and pasta and watched Elf last night and laughed our heads off - such a cute movie!
Crowded dinners like Friday make me long for our addition to be done. Our addition is moving along - we should be almost done before Christmas - so Christmas dinner may be in the new room - which might only have the subfloor and need some paint on the walls - but will still be useable. The room will be 16 x 20 with lots of windows facing south so it will be a bright room. It will have room for our dining table to be used with both leaves and will have a closet - our house has very little closet space - and a small sitting area - two club chairs and a table under the large windows. The room will have 11 32 x 64 windows and french doors opening onto a patio/deck. We have had so much fun picking flooring (cork) and doors and windows and siding. We still need to make choces on lighting and paint colors.
