Woke up to my mama cooking pancakes (thank you) and did my sister's arrival countdown. Twelve more days and she will be here for a four day visit. Her first time at our home and during the holidays. Woohoo. We have a few things planned for the weekend but mostly just relaxing and visiting.

Having worked three holiday seasons at Hallmark in my teens before the huge Black Friday craze and knowing how stressful that was, I can only imagine today's debacle. Well, I do know as my mom and aunt were both employed at Target. I will not participate in Black Friday. I've signed all the online petitions for Target and WalMart employees asking for no early hours on Friday morning. Can we just have the whole Thursday to enjoy with our families? There are plenty of days between Friday after Thanksgiving and Christmas to get your sales $ Mr. Retailer!

I'm sitting at the computer and something caught my eye when I looked out the window. Facing me, on the fence is this beautiful hawk. I'm not sure because of distance and how sat, if it's a red tail or not. I'm hoping it is, because it's a very special symbol to my Amah-Mutsun tribe, one it represents is providing us security and protection.

This clock belonged to my late husband's Nan, (maternal grandmother). When she passed and his mother went through Nan's household items, that were packed away, this was among them. Terry's mother didn't want it and neither did he but I loved it and the retro look. I convinced my husband that it would look great in his garage and that's where we had it. It was mass produced between 1954-1959 and as you can see, has a cord. I want to put it up in the garage here but since there is only one electrical outlet, will have to buy a surge board. If you like you can go to Telechron.net and view many vintages clocks from the General Electric Co.

When I entered my bedroom last night, this is what I found. Ahhh, since my dog sleeps at the end of the bed I wasn't prepared for that body part to be this close to my head. I don't know what the reason was for oneeya to change her sleep location, although it did make me think it was time to rotate the mattress. Stripped the bedding, rotated the mattress and when I was putting the clean bedding on, the official house bed testing cat came in to check my work. Thankfully she approved and oneeya is at the end of the bed again.
