Brought to you by the letter T

Home equity line of credit approved? Check! Made contact with Mag? Check! And, that's it. We have the forms to complete, I have selected photos and written a little bit about myself and who/what I'm looking for as a donor. The next step is to sign the papers at the bank, complete all the forms and send off some moola. Hopefully, we'll do that this week.

This past weekend we didn't do much, but it was still pretty enjoyable. Friday night we saw the movie Law.Abiding.Citizne. Gerard.Butler is in it. And all I can say is hello, fellow, nice bum where ya from. It was an excellent movie, a little on the violent side, but still very good. Saturday was spent raking leaves. The backyard had already been done so I did the side yard and front yard - which brought the grand total for this year to 34 and a half bags of leaves. Then on Sunday we went to craft fair - we'd gone to it previously, but this year it didn't seem as good or as busy. In past years, we could hardly move around freely, this year it was just us walking around at times. I think the fall in the economy has affected the fair as well because while in past years people would leave with their arms full of stuff, this year people had one item or nothing. I felt sorry for the artists. The only thing we bought was some very yummy apple cidar.

Today finds me back at work and working on a project that is wrapping up finally. I have a little bit more free time on my hands.

What I'm really looking forward to is Thursday. It is American Thanksgiving on Thursday and a few years ago we started a tradition of going to a great cajun restaurant for Turduc.ken. Refer back to this post for a detailed description of this dish. I don't think our friends will be joining us this year, which is too bad, but I'm still happy to be carrying on the tradition nonetheless.

YAY for things moving along, work being less busy and keeping up new found traditions. :)
Btw I can't believe you had so many leaves! Craziness!

Congratulations on your approvals and progress, how exciting! I look forward to hearing about your experience.

And I think it's great that you celebrate American Thanksgiving with a Turduken! I have yet to try that but hear it's delicious.
I'll be celebrating with you - I am really looking forward to a long weekend, it is much needed.

Have a great week / weekend!
