Thanksgiving Break

To my readers and to those whom I read, my most sincere apologies, but I will need to take a bit of a break through this Thanksgiving holiday week.  Not only was I completely ambushed by the onset of autumn, but I was completely, hopelessly blindsided by the sudden appearance of the winter holiday season, punctuated by the shock of seeing Santa in the local mall (don't think we didn't take advantage of the pre-Thanksgiving lack of lines, though).  No more warm breezes, no more grass between my toes, no more beach bag packing, no more relaxing on lazy days...nope, all gone.  And, if the Mayans have it correct, they'll be gone for good.  But that's a whole 'nother post for a whole 'nother day...

The holiday season means I need to get cracking on my gift-creations.  Holiday cards and photo books, in particular.  I have 3 different ones I need to make, and while the DIY photo craft websites make it super-easy to do, it's also super time-consuming, and when tasty deals (buy 1, get 2 free, anyone?) are dangled in front of your face, they usually give you only a day or two to take advantage of them.  Sure, I could have created my books long in advance (yeah, with all of that luxurious spare time I always have...) and just ordered them when the deals came, but I laugh (!!) in the face of preparation and cry at the true reality of procrastination.

(on a side note, TravelZoo is featuring vouchers for $20.00 for 30 Shutterfly holiday photo cards - the vouchers can only be purchased through tomorrow, but can be redeemed up until Dec. 22nd - click here)

As such, I need to buckle down and get some stuff done over the next few days.  Plus, no one (myself included) even reads blogs over holiday weeks or weekends, so why waste my efforts, right?

So I leave you for the next few days with a photo to make you laugh, and a wish to you all for a very, very happy and healthy Thanksgiving.

The stuff dolls' nightmares are made of.  Or at least the little guy sitting at his
computer...  I think he's saying, "Holy crap!"

What?! No one reads blogs over the weekend? I'd read yours anytime...weekends, Christmas, vacations at the beach (like I ever go to the beach)...anytime!
