Thank goodness it's Friday! This week has been a doozie! I was honestly relieved to go to the dentist yesterday (a chore I typically hate), sit quietly in the waiting room for 10 minutes and mindlessly read the November Issue of Bon Appetit. I have a big work project that I need to start, but couldn't figure out where to begin. I was able to sort out my thoughts, as I sat in the chair, getting my teeth cleaned (no cavities!). Perhaps I don't hate the dentist as much as I thought! (Remember, if you can't get out of it, get into it! It really works!!)
Make: I keep seeing great ideas for presents to make for that hard to shop for person. How about a Personalized Throw? You can pick up a plain inexpensive fleece blanket almost anywhere, then add some applique! Brilliant! Full tutorial on Maize Hutton.
Decorate: That big turkey dinner is right around the corner. You've probably thought about your menu, but what about the centerpiece? Check out these Tips for Autumn Floral Arrangements from A Beautiful Mess. Including feathers? So pretty!
Consider: My heart continues to be heavy with thoughts of the Hurricane Sandy victims. I want to write something deep and heartfelt, but I am at a loss for words. I thought this post from A Blog About Love was quite poignant. May we all have gratitude! (Especially in the spirit of Thanksgiving, but always.)
