Monday's News-Getting ready for the Holidays

My weekend has been a busy one. We were package and getting ready to go to Dad's. I am cooking Thanksgiving Dinner there. So I had to go shopping to get the things I will need. then to the laundry and wrapping presents.

I had to take down the canvas and screen to the Gazebo. Winter is showing its head and the Fall winds are here. That meant time to batten down the yard items. We had to get the Cars tuned and ready for the winter and trips. Hubby cleaned out the cars and had them detailed. I moved some furniture around making room for the Holiday trees. Signed up for some tickets to the Menorah Lighting on the 1st of December. May some plans for this next week activities. We are going to the Christmas Town in Williamsburg, Virginia. This is the Second year for it. We have never been and are looking forward to going.

Sunday we took off to Virginia Beach. Visiting Dad's and getting ready for our Thanksgiving Celebration. We cross the Ocean on the way. Reminds me of that song " Over the river and through the wood to Grandmothers house we go.....". Only my song would go, Over the river and through the ocean to grandfathers house we go..." After all we travel in the tunnel under the ocean on our way. We arrived Sunday afternoon. There is an old Piano at Dads'. I love to play it when I visit.This year my daughter will play the cello and I the piano. We will play the theme song to the movie " Mr. Grinch"
On top there is a doll collection and some Framed music covers from days gone by.The little pianos do play songs. I love seeing and hearing the collectibles.After eating at The Texas Roadhouse that evening, Dad and I watched a movie on The Life network channel. It was a murder mystery, a very good one. We didn't figure it out at all, a total surprise ending to us all.

So how was your weekend?
