We actually went shopping...

We've never gone shopping during the sale on Thanksgiving, but we did last night. We had so much fun. We used Dear Son's visit as an excuse to go to Macy's and buy a few home items.

A few towels, new pillows, and the biggest splurge? A comforter set with matching sheets. I don't think I've ever bought matching sheets and a comforter at the same time.

California King sets are very rare here. There were only a handful at 6:30p, and the sale started at 6p at Macy's.

We bought:

It's tropical, but doesn't look like a hotel room. (And no, this doesn't resemble our bedroom in any way.)

The set is much prettier than it looks. It has texture and a slight, shiny sheen. I'm looking forward to getting the set on the bed tonight. I didn't get the matching pillows. The "baby pillow" in front was $40 on sale!

Back to work for me. I'm going to try to get out of here at 3:30p so I can go home and get a roast cooking and do some final cleaning.

I hope you have a wonderful day.

The volcano has disappeared...

We had rain for almost 24 hours straight and it's raining off and on today.

Wow, are the weeds happy. See them waving in the foreground.

Dear Son arrives Friday evening. The house is so messy that we wouldn't be able to tell if it was vandalized today while we are at work. And the biggest problem? The refrigerator is empty. A hungry man getting off of a six hour flight would definitely not appreciate an empty refrigerator.

I hope you have a great holiday if I don't "see" you before.
