Ah...it's that wonderful, infamous shopping day. Read the ads yesterday and wanted absolutely nothing. :-) We did go to Home Depot to get a Maglite. I don't know why, but I always get distracted by tools. Sometimes more so than my husband. "Ooh...that looks cool.." Never mind that I can't even really use the drill my husband bought me (well, I can, I just don't actually know how to change the bits *sheepish grin*). I still love that drill though. It's been used to put together lots of things that have made me very happy. Like, oh, bookshelves.
And we went to Bed, Bath and Beyond. Luckily they weren't having any huge Black Friday sales so it was safe to shop there. It's very easy to spend $50+ in a kitchen store.
AND....we passed a sign saying Huge Book Sale (or something like that) and went in. Lots of discounted books. Picked up The Traveler in a book club edition. They had plenty of other stuff and lots of trade paperbacks, but really...my shelves are full so I didn't pick up any of those. I might go later on. I heard that they'll be open for a few months.
Also bought tickets for an afternoon showing of Harry Potter. Can't wait.
Okay...on to Turkey day events. We brined the turkey and it turned out perfectly. Had one little hitch in that though. Put it out overnight in the brine solution on our covered balcony. Er...it got down to like 16 degrees that night. So Nick had to chip off about an inch and a half of ice before we could rescue the turkey. *g* Other than that, it turned out great. My first pumpkin pie was excellent, too.
Also read a ton. Finished up Kiss Me, Annabel by Eloisa James, started and finished One Little Sin by Liz Carlyle, and started Two Little Lies by Carlyle. I should finish up Two Little Lies today. So reviews of all three will be forthcoming. All were excellent and very enjoyable. Lots of great characters.
