Can you believe it? It seems like just last week I was on the beach at Ocean City with the whole summer in front of me and now it's almost Thanksgiving. Do you have your plans made for the day? Are you cooking? Or are you going somewhere? I'd love to hear your plans.
Joe and I are doing something different. For the first time we are spending Thanksgiving in Lancaster, PA. We are going to one of our favorite places, Hershey Farm. We are actually staying in the same room we stayed in for our anniversary this year and we are having dinner at their restaurant. I actually don't like turkey, so I am planning on having fried chicken. Yum. We are very excited about doing this. Since I am working on Saturday I will have Friday off and so we are going to hit the outlets on Black Friday. We should get some fantastic deals and we have promised ourselves to get all of our Christmas shopping done that day (except for a few stocking stuffers) so we can enjoy the rest of the season.
So today was rather quiet at the library until around 4 p.m. Then it seems all the kids in the neighborhood showed up and the noise level went up considerably. We had the dietician from Shop Rite come to do a program on healthy eating. She gave a talk about what to eat and then cooked some things for the kids. It seemed to be a popular program. You had to sign up for it ahead of time which was a good thing because I think every kid in the neighborhood would have shown up otherwise.
Speaking of eating, I'm heading out to make dinner for us. Turkey burgers, garlic bread and fries. Sounds good. Then I have to make a treat for Bible study tomorrow and get everything ready for that. Besides straightening up things upstairs for the plumber coming on Friday. I have a lot to do tonight. So I've really got to get off of here and get busy.
