Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

With this warm weather, it sure doesn't feel like the end of November. Yesterday we broke a record set in 2010 - it got up to 74! I think it's supposed to be in the high 60's today.

I am thoroughly disgusted that a lot of stores are opening at 6pm or 8pm tonight to begin Black Friday sales. I think they should go back to 4 or 5am openings on Friday morning. Pretty soon they'll be opening at noon or earlier on Thanksgiving.

I did enjoy the paper this morning though! We had a TON of inserts!


Skyfall

Really enjoyed my first Daniel Craig James Bond movie! Brandon, Kaitlin and I saw it in IMAX today.

President Barack Obama RE-ELECTED!

WHY?

Why did Kaleb's friend Alicia have to tell me that Walmart carries these now?


October Books

I read 11 books in October:

1) A Fool's Gold Christmas - Susan Mallery (Kindle)
2) When Lightning Strikes - Brenda Novak (Kindle)
3) Last To Die - Tess Gerritsen (Hardback)
4) The Hunter - John Lescroart (Hardback)
5) The Wedding Dance - Lucy Kevin (Kindle)
6) The Wedding Song - Lucy Kevin (Kindle)
7) Oath of Office - Michael Palmer (Hardback)
8) Sleep No More - Iris Johansen (Hardback)
9) When Snow Falls - Brenda Novak (Kindle)
10) When We Touch - Brenda Novak (Kindle)
11) My Kind of Christmas - Robyn Carr (Kindle)

Palmer is one of my favorite authors, and Oath of Office was great: suspenseful and thrilling! Gerritsen delivered on Last to Die, as always. And Johansen, while continuing her Eve Duncan series, had a winner as well. Novak is a new favorite, so will be looking for more of her books to read.

On to November - my first book is NYPD Red by James Patterson...
