Thanksgiving, Advent and me just being me.

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. All my American followers, that is. :) All you that don't celebrate Thanksgiving, I hope your Thursday was pleasant all the same.

Thanksgiving is just a fun, cozy sort of holiday. I mean, food, music, family, (not necessarily in that order) make for a very enjoyable day. Here's a little peek at our day.

No. We weren't even having a funny face competition.
We just do it by accident. And capture it forever on film.
And then I blog about it.

And then the clean-up. 
Because "all magic comes with a price. "
We actually have a pretty good time, even with clean-up. We're all fed and happy and usually we start singing. Loudly and passionately. We are Italian. :) Plus, once we finish cleaning, there's dessert, coffee, and a movie so we are properly motivated. 

Today is the first Sunday of Advent. I always love Advent. Now I feel like I can start really looking forward to Christmas! I try to hold off on the whole Christmas music thing until St. Nicholas' feast day on December 6th. But usually a few Christmas songs sneak their way in before that.

I might do some of this challenge.
Don't worry. I'm not going to make you look at my photography every day again. I'm just going to use the list to get some picture ideas. Some of them are pretty fun. The good pictures I might post. We'll see. 

I'm in a really happy mood today. You know when you just feel completely happy inside for no apparent reason? The whole world is beautiful you love everybody? That's me right now. 

And one last thing. I really wish season 7 of Psych would make it to netflix already! I want to watch those again quite a lot. A lot, a lot.
I don't know if any of you are Psych fans.  (Well, I don know a few of you are.) but season eight is doing something epic.

Psych the Musical!

And here I am. Still stuck on season 7. *Sigh*
I guess it's nice to have something to look forward to.
I'm going to have to wait a long time.

Right, well. You all have a lovely Sunday. I am going to grab my book, and settle down for a nice long read. 

God Bless!


  1. All magic comes with a price.


    1. "That's right, Dearie" ....*Flourishes hands*

  2. I can't WAIT for Psych The Musical! That one ought to be awesome. :)

    I loved all the stupid faces, and I appreciate your excluding me from the collage. (You know what would have happened had I appeared, of course. *Punches fist meaningly into other hand.*

    1. Me neither. PSYCH!
      LOL. I would *never* use a bad picture of you, my dear. I value life.

  3. Looks like your family had a suitibly loud and enthusiastic Thanksgiving. Ours was loud, also, because we have loud tiny people. (We celebrate Thanksgiving because said loud tiny people's father is American. Any excuse for a big meal, right? We have Italian in us, too.)

    1. Oh, that's cool. Yes, if you can find a reason to celebrate, DO IT! hehe. The louder the better. Most of the time. As long as it;s a good, happy loud. :)

  4. They;re doing a Psych musical? This is why I love that show, it can be so random!
    I am annoyed seven isn't up yet. I kind of got to right before the end, when Jules gets mad at him, and have no idea what happens next and it is bugging me.

    Your Thanksgiving looks so fun. Though I had a moment of picturing Columbo in his wife's aporn, doing dishes, and singing Josh Groban Christmas songs.

    Oh, the Doctor Who Christmas special. I don't want it. I don't, I don;t. 12 looks like he will be a great Doctor, but I have become very fond of 11 and don't wish him to go, which kind of makes me laugh. The whole show is about getting new Doctors. That's what has kept it around for fifty years, but every time it happens we sulk and cry and whine. Whovains, those who should be the most used to change...can't stand it. 8-P

    1. Hi, Jack.
      I rather fancy it's going to take me a long time to decide to watch the Christmas special.
      It is'd think the fans would have a handle on the whole "Change" thing by this point. But we don't. We're pathetic. lol.

  5. That is a wonderful feeling when we all get together and have fun like you did! ❤️ Thank you for sharingy our pics with us. i love it when you and your sisters post pics of you and your family. It gives a homey feeling.

    1. Aww, thank you, Hilda. :) I'm glad you get a homey feeling. That's lovely. :)
