a busy weekend planned

its friday
yippee!  its friday and now, Im off for 9 days!   We already had thanksgiving and the day after off, and then I usually take the day before off as well, but I decided last week to take the rest of the week too!  Im looking forward to it,  though, there is stuff going on every day, none of the days are totally free.  But regardless, at least I dont have to go to work and I will enjoy my time off!
I  started it off by baking some peanut butter cookies tonight.  ummmm, they are really good.   guess how many I ate?    OINK OINK OINK!! i ate 6 of them.   I know.. naughty me.  well, I didnt eat them all at once.  I ate two hot ones out of the oven, then I had a cup of tea and two more...   and then a little later, I had another cup of tea and two more...   yikes!  I think I've had enough for tonight. 
I'll be starting out very early tomorrow morning going grocery shopping.  I plan on heading out the door about 7:00 am and being back home by 8:30.  I want to beat the crowd.  this is one of the worst grocery shopping weekends of the year!  then Im meeting a friend at 9:30 to go christmas shopping  for a few hours, she has to get back by 1:00 because she has friends coming from out of town and then Im heading to a doll show with jen and Ella.  In a couple years I'll be able to take Marla and Violet with me too!
christmas supplies..
Tomorrow night and most of sunday I will be playing. puttering and crafting!  Until about 4:00 on sunday when then the whole family will be heading to red lobster to celebrate Robert and Big Torry's birthdays.  
Afterwords, Marla pie will be coming home with us to spend the night. Then Torry will join us on monday and I'll have Marla and Torry all day!
ok.. Im heading to the couch,  Im pooped out.
have a great weekend girlie pies!

Good for you for taking some time off, Viv. You SO deserve it. I know you will be busy but I hope you have some fun time "playing" with all your special projects. Your creations always amaze me. God bless you and your family during the upcoming HOliday- xo Diana

I always feel like I need a nap after I read your posts. You cram more activity in any day than 3 other people! You know how to get lots accomplished and have lots of fun while doing it! Enjoy your time off but remember to take some time to rest, too.
Happy Thanksgiving, Viv!
