the day after

great thanksgiving. had lunch with fred's family at a resturant.
easy. no clean up, no left overs to figure out what to do with.

then we went to robert's mom and dad's. very relaxing.
enjoyed the afteroon with friends.

but today, friday after, i sit her working, well at work.
D is off to spend time with his family and all the other tech's, well i guess they are home.

but me, sitting here reading more of step. meyers website, chilling.
messing with my blog and checking out face book friends.

i changed my "tunes" here to relect my moods with the books...
and i want badly to go to washington state to visit town of Forks.
just to see and get the feeling of completion.
these books have affected me in a great way.

now to get ready for christmas.

Today is Wednesday.
a beautiful day in Louisiana.

so, my little world is doing good today.

better then Monday, well, Monday night at least.

and i think i have O.C.D.

i knew i was a little nuts, but really i knew all along. the scrap booking stuff.
why have all that stuff? will i ever use it all? likely not.
the knitting, a newer hobby.
will i knit enough to make use of the 50 lbs. of yarn i bought?
likely not.
now reading ....i love to read, my imagination takes me off to far away places, to places where dreams flirt with reality, a nice place to escape. but sometimes those "escapes" tend to make me doubt reality.
so i am cool...taking each day as it was meant to be.
trying to get rid of my thought regarding the last books i read...the TWILIGHT SAGA.

i hate to say it, but wow! those books drew me in like crazy. great books no doubt.
the movie? eh...not what i wanted, but good for those that will newer read the books.

so that's it....turkey day is less then 12 hours away.
happy thanksgiving

Interesting Geography Facts

Brazil got its name from the nut -- not the other way around.

Spain literally means 'the land of rabbits.'

There are no natural lakes in the state of Ohio -- every one is man-made.

The Eisenhower Interstate System requires that one mile in every five MUST be straight. These straight sections are usable as airstrips in times of war or other emergencies.

Antarctica is the only land on our planet that is not owned by any country. Ninety percent of the world's ice covers Antarctica. This ice also represents seventy percent of all the fresh water in the world. As strange as it sounds, however, Antarctica is essentially a desert. The average yearly total precipitation is about two inches. Although covered with ice (all but 0.4% of it, i.e.), Antarctica is the driest place on the planet -- with an absolute humidity lower than the Gobi desert.

In the Sahara Desert , there is a town named Tidikelt, which did not receive a drop of rain for ten years. Technically though, the driest place on Earth is in the valleys of the Antarctic near Ross Island. There has been no rainfall there for two million years.
