  1. Not going to lie Lee, I can't wait for the roast, it's going to be absolutely quality, really looking forward to it, nice little round up post about what's going on around here right now.

  2. It was a relaxing Thanksgiving.
    Ready to roast next week and then pray after that. Hmm, I think those were planned...

  3. Planned, schmanned :)

    Thanks for the shout out, Lee and I'm soooo looking forward to next Monday :)

  4. Had a very nice Thanksgiving with family, then got decorated for Christmas. Ready for the holidays mentally - have no shopping done yet - but I'm okay with that (today's post). Weather is chilly (28 this morning on my walk with the dog at 5:30) but clear. Perfect!

  5. I guess I missed a lot this past month. You're an excellent choice for the Cheers Fest, Lee.

  6. I need to look over those roasting rules again and see if my creative process has been working on my back burner.

    Congrats again, Lee!

  7. I just finished decorating and I feel like I've been beat to hell. And also it feels like I just put the dang things away too. No plans for the holidays that I know of yet. Just spending time with my family.

  8. I'm not ready for the holidays at all yet, but I always put shopping off to the last minute.

  9. Hi, Lee,

    Hope they don't overcook you… LOL.

    Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend.

    Looking forward to you news… Very intriguing…

    YAY for Mark… already signed up, but I seem to not me on your list… hmmmmm. A real mystery.

  10. Haven't had time to go back Lee. However, wanted to comment that I would never have thought of the Hallelujah chorus because in the UK it was only ever played at Easter and even after 38 years, I do not associate it with Christmas.

  11. Looking forward to finding out what your upcoming news is. : )

  12. Weather couldn't be better here in sunny AZ. Yes, busy, but positively wonderful holidays. Here's wishing you the same.

  13. I 'm getting excited for your roast, and looking forward to your big announcement Lee!


  14. Thank you for all of your comments. Not much to say in response other than that.
