We had a whirlwind trip to my parents to celebrate Thanksgiving today. We left earlyish this morning, stopping in Kalona on the way (a short side trip) to pick up my nephew to give him a ride. He is working at a restaurant there (Tuscan Moon). The weather was beautiful today and the food wonderful. I brought dessert. Cranberry bars, and a 'little bit different for Iowa' pie- a wet bottom shoefly pie from a recipe from my MIL in Pennsylvania.
We took eggs for my parents and Dad had a surprise for us. Half a feedsack of cracked corn that he had ground for the chickens. Isn't he sweet. I guess they like the eggs enough to feed the chickens!!
We got home around 6:30 pm and sadly, when we drove by the mall on our way home, there was already a line of people standing at Best Buy. The store is opening at midnight... sigh... What can really be worth standing in line that long for. I value my time much more than that- no matter how good the deal. The one weekend sale I may go to is at the fabric store. On Saturday they're having quilting cottons for $1.99 a yard. Hmm, I may have to go check it out. Not that I NEED any fabric... but I always need fabric.
I've been giving some more thought to an Etsy shop. Of course, there are things that would need done first. Like an Iowa Sales Tax Permit (sigh...) and I would want to have a little inventory of things to put up. So, there isn't a rush. And I've got some ideas for wall art/quilts that I want to try that may stand out from the crowd a bit more as I fear the competition is rather fierce. I've definitely got some ideas to keep me busy this winter as well as revamping the master plan... but more on that later.
I do hope you all had a fabulous day. For those in the US, celebrated with family and friends, giving thanks- to those elsewhere, just a lovely day.
