Productive weekend

Had a good weekend, though I stayed up too late every night and am paying for it this morning! I wrapped all the Christmas presents I have already, cleaned house, majorly. Had to buy a new vacuum because I dropped the one I had down the stairs while cleaning. Bumped it with my elbow. The dh won't be too happy when he comes home and learns I had to buy yet another vacuum. Since moving into this house with stairs, I've been though three vacuums. If I'm not dragging them down on my head, I'm bumping them. The one I bought though should save me from further problems. If is an upright but you can detached and make it a canister. So when I do the stairs I have a smaller, easier to handle vacuum. We'll see how long it lasts!

I also managed 2500 words over the weekend, not as many as I'd hoped but it was the love scene and I kept reworking it with more emotion. Also on Friday I bought a wireless keyboard and mouse to use with my laptop and I'm still getting used to the new keyboard. My fingers are having trouble staying in the right place.

I'm ready for company to hit this week. Just have the baking and prep work for Thursday to do.

So how are you spending your Thanksgiving?

I like the new look of your blog! Great job on the 2500 words; love scenes are the hardest to write, I think. Happy Thanksgiving!

We had our celebration on Sat. with my youngest daughter, partner and his two kids. He doesn't have the kids this week and my husband works Thanksgiving. We had a good celebration but my daughter was so sick. Found out she had strep throat and now her partner has strep throat. I hope it stays away from me. So Thanksgiving we will treat as another day. We are still enjoying turkey salad sandwiches and leftovers.

Squiresj, Thanks for stopping by and commenting. It sounds like you had a nice celebration even if it was early.
