Holidays and I'm scattilated!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I soaked my turkey overnight in water and 1/2 cup of salt and some hot spices and it was the best ever, I must say.

The stores have plenty of great bargains for shopping right now so it helps get me into the holiday spirit.

AND I see Rick Springfield and Foo fighter tickets are on sale. What could be better?
There are several Nutcracker performances in today's paper as well.

To keep my creative thoughts flowing, I am going to take a long walk around Lake Eola and simply listen to sounds of BeaSilly muse chatter. Take a walk with her sometime. You will smile through the entire afternoon or evening after.

Are you ready to leap into Thanksgiving on Thursday? Turkey talk surrounding you? Enjoy the day and try something different. Experiment and be playful with it. You might eat dessert first or change the usual time or whatever makes you smile more about the day to put any stress away in its hopelessness chest and forget it. Remind yourself what the day is about and play don't work to be with your family and friends . Gratitude begins with a feeling. Surrender to it and have fun.

Today is Guy Fawks' Day and hope all of you will have a terrific day.
Guy Fawks and a band of men tried to bomb Parliament in 1606 and failed. So this day is celebrated in the UK, Canada, Australia etc. as a symbol of peace.
The kids go door to door to beg for a penny for the guy (to pay for their fireworks). the symbolic guy is burned in effigy in the evening in a huge bonfire (warning do not try this in California).
Treats include treacle puddings and apples etc to celebrate.
Hope this gives everyone some creativity juice to make it a celebration of your own today.
Enjoy yourselves!
