Happy Tofurkey Day, Everyone!
We made great time back to Louisville on Tuesday and actually made the whole trip in one big chunk. That's not really the way we prefer to do it, but we got past the point of no return and just kept on going.
We were actually quite surprised about it. Going down, we got caught in a massive construction slowdown outside of Memphis. It took 3 hours to go about 12 miles! We were prepared to get stuck in that again, but we cruised right through the same spot with no issues.
Our early arrival back home meant that I had a whole afternoon to spend at Peddler's Mall getting ready for Black Friday. A lot of the items I had put out before we left sold while we were gone, which was a good thing. I had kind of ran out of room for all my Xmas stuff! I was able to totally rearrange and completely restock the area, so I am totally ready! I have a few more Christmas items to go out, but for the most part, it's all out.
We're now prepping our annual vegetarian feast. I'm pricing up stuff that I haven't had time to get to recently. I'm going to spend the afternoon working on my junk room, which has become impassable again. Tomorrow, I'll head to YesterNook and put out my last vintage Xmas stuff. I think I'll hit a thrift that's doing half off, then to Half-Price Books for their sale. I'll get my gift-shopping done there.
If you're watching my post total, you'll see that 200 is just around the bend! Woo hoo!
I'm planning on getting some posts done and scheduled this weekend, so you'll have some content this week. Hopefully, you'll read about some recent acquisitions, recent travels, and other thoughts in the next few days. I've also found a huge stash of vintage Christmas cards, so "Your Vintage Christmas Card of the Day" will be returning, once I get some scanning done. I'm also working on a couple of "Junkin' Memories" posts and a "This is How We Do it" post. Plus, I've got a kind of a personal issue to talk about. Stick with us, folks. There's lots to come!
In the meantime, please go over to the Monkeybox blog and show Shara some love. Her family got dealt quite a blow a few days ago. There's always a personal side to just about every headline you read. It's sad how often we forget this.
