Thanksgiving Weekend

Me by tree



I really enjoyed my long weekend this past week.  My mom and I had lunch and went shopping afterwards. I sketched  my apple pie that I got for dessert.  Vera and I went for a walk on Thanksgiving morning and almost all the leaves on the ginkgo tree had fallen.  I sketched a Christmas tree lot while waiting to meet Zac to go to his Aunt's house for Thanksgiving.  He had been hunting (more like watching) deer.  We went to Huey's for a burger and watched the Memphis Tigers game that night.  The next morning we ran the Recovery Run 5K with my sister and her husband.  It was so cold!!!  We warmed up with Starbucks after :)  I'd never tried the caramel brulée latte and it was so good.  On Sunday, we picked out our Christmas tree.  Every year I think we are picking out a small tree and then when we get it home it's not so small.  We got the smallest, skinniest one on the lot.  I can't imagine if we had gone with the fuller one, haha.  We put some colored sparkly lights on it and a few ornaments, but it's not fully decorated yet.  I still have a whole box of ornaments left :)  We listened to a few Christmas records that I found at an estate sale.  I'm so excited about the Dean Martin one and less excited about the Diana Ross & the Supremes one.  I found the perfect colored yarn to knit this bandana cowl that I have been dying to try.  I just hope I can figure out how to do short rows :)
