How quickly our time has come and gone. We have had a great week. We got up yesterday and headed out by 9:45 a.m. for a breakfast burrito and Black Friday at a favorite shop in Breckenridge that has 50 % off for 2 hours only. Oh my I’m sure some kind of fire code broken (lol) as we were packed. I think George May have been the only male in the place. I had to restrain myself because 50% is a lot. We did this last year too. This wa my view in line at the counter.
We also went to some other shops in town. And then headed out for Mineral Wells to help Katy find a deal on King Size bed and mattress. Success there! Hunger set in by 2:00 p.m. and we hit a BBQ restaurant that had a variety of other things on the menu, called The Mesquite Pit.
I tossed all care aside and ordered fried chicken tenders and honey mustard dressing but – I did order the mesquite grilled veggie skewer which was out of this world delicious. And a side salad. It was so good.
I drove back to the ranch. We got here about 4:30 and took care of doggies. We played on iPads while Katy finished decorating and did things in the house. George helped her set up the new TV in their bedroom. Cody was working- and has been all week. He was off most of Thanksgiving Day but had responsibilities that morning. We always get to see him at night.
I washed a load of darks so we’d have clean jeans and I’d have PJs to get through the weekend. We will be leaving this morning to go to Hot Springs, our halfway point and we have a place we will be eating seafood at tonight. Tomorrow we point toward home.
I am looking forward to our king size bed. It’s been hard with two people and two dogs in a regular size bed. The last two mornings I’ve given up sleep and up before 4. Tonight we will also have a King in our hotel. I’m also looking forward to getting our house decorated for Christmas now.
We have good news…Aunt Martha and Uncle Ken are coming up to spend Christmas and bringing Mom. I’m so excited! Katy and Cody will be coming too but will be staying at his parents. George was very excited also. Tears stung my eyes when I told him the news and he said that would make Christmas extra special this year. So we are excited. The only problem is…..if it snows they won’t. So please weatherman no snow. So looking forward to getting ready for them. George and I will be sleeping on the sofas but we are ok with that. We have really comfy sofas and have no problem with that! I had turned one of our two guest bedrooms into an office. So we only have one now but we can do this easily to be able to have them with us.
And that said I’m going to get more coffee, watch the sun come up, shower, and get the suit cases packed. I have my little bag packed for our overnight in Hot Springs. But here are some Christmas decor pics and pics of the doggies. Prayers please for safe travels over the next couple of days.
Curious what you did on Black Friday????
