Today is Veterans Day so if you have someone in your family or a friend or see someone wearing insignia that indicates they are a veteran, during your daily travels, please be sure to thank them for their service.
Here's a photo of my Grandfather and his men during WWII. He's the one in front center with the mustache. He served in both the European and Pacific theatres.
We got our first real frost last night. No wonder.....it spit snow a bit yesterday too.
I've got to start cleaning the house today as Elder son and his GF will be arriving next weekend for a couple of days. I've also got to come up with a real nice meal for while they are here since they won't be here on Turkey Day and I am NOT going to cook that meal twice in one week(not a big enough fan of turkey to do so).
I've also got to get the fridges in order(ie-leftovers eaten and cleaned out)so I can fit the bird in there soon. And I need to figure out what I still need to buy(besides the turkey).....off the top of my head, it won't be much. ;-)
I will be going to Target this week as they have their "Get $10 GC wyspend $50 on Food Deal". I sent for a $50 Target GC a few weeks ago paying for that with our credit card points. Get $10 GC for spending a "free" Target GC? Yes, please!! 8-)
Also on the agenda this week is a trip to the Food Bank to drop off a car load of HBA/cleaning products .
We'll probably do that the same day we go out to The Christmas Tree Shoppes with Hubs. There is one North of here about 30 min away now and I'v'e never been to one. I probably won't buy anything but we are just going there to get out of the house and window shop. We'll probably eat lunch out that day too.
Oh, and there will be a trip to Dollar General for some Taco Bell GCs as they are discounted at that store this week.
And of course, there will be a trip to, where else?, Rite-Aid......lolz
Lastly, head on over to Anne's blog, "Cooking and All That Jazz" to find out about entering her Christmas Card Swap. She's done this for a few years now. It's open to bloggers as well as blog readers so go join in!
