I’ll be taking a break from blogging for the next ten days to two weeks.
The brother bought me a plane ticket to Washington, D.C., for a long Thanksgiving weekend. There will be food and drink and laughs and perhaps a ride or two on the metro or in brother’s car. I haven’t been there in about three years, so I plan to be focused on doing the many things as I can in four full days rather than blogging away precious time. The long weekend will go fast.
No offense to my blogging peeps, I’m sure you understand. Thanksgiving in the U.S. is always reserved for family or friends, whether or not one escapes to a different city, state or country. We love to get together in honor of food and spirits, and afternoon naps from too much of the food and spirits. While I love turkey, I’m really keeping my fingers crossed for pumpkin pie.
Coming back during the week is not promising for blogging time (catching up at work, ugh) and the following weekend is filled with Project X on Saturday (my church shops for needy families, wraps and delivers) and a visit to the Performing Arts Center on Sunday evening. I won a raffle basket at church in October that contained two tickets to see Phantom of the Opera and two VISA cards to have dinner beforehand. My friend and I are so excited to do to this, but I also don’t want time to fly by too fast. First, I have to enjoy the trip to D.C.
While away, I’ll miss all of you. Really, I will. Keep on blogging and liking and commenting on each other’s posts and if you’re looking for something to do later this week, might I suggest you check out We Are the World Blogfest. We are nearing year three of a magnificent blogfest that joins a group of bloggers willing to spread some happiness on the last Friday of every month. All you need is a paragraph or two and a link to a positive story. That’s it. Easy peasy.
You can also check out the #WATWB Facebook page HERE. Even if you don’t participate in the blogfest, there are many wonderful stories on this page to make your heart light and face smile.
So, that’s it.
I’m almost certain there may be photos of my adventures on Facebook or Instagram or Twitter, if you follow me at any of these locations. Otherwise, I’ll be back here sometime in December. With bells and holly and another holiday fast approaching.
Love, light and peace to all.

I hope it’s a lovely return after a few years away. It makes me wish we had Thanksgiving over here in the UK as it always seems like such a warm time. Have a lovely long Thanksgiving weekend! 😊
There’s nothing stopping you from having your own personal Thanksgiving with turkey and pie. I’ll be back to blogging in December, stuffed to the eyeballs and raring to go!
There’s always an excuse for turkey and pie 😉 Don’t put too much pressure on rushing back, just have the best time possible! xx
I will, thanks!
That sounds like a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend, Mary J. Enjoy it to the max! Safe journeys and huge hugs.

I watched your adventures! It looks like you had a great trip. Happy Belated Thanksgiving to you! Happy Holidays!!!
I had a really wonderful trip, Shelley. I love visiting the DC area and Thanksgiving with family was a good start to the season. Happy holidays to you too!
Yay! I’ve never been there, you did make it look fun though. It’s always heart-warming to spend time with family. Happy Holidays to you and your kitties too!
Everyone should go to DC at least once. Put it on your list!
Based on your recommendation, I shall do just that (add it to my bucket list!). 🙂
