I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I took most of the weekend off to just catch up on sleep and do absolutely nothing but watch Christmas movies, read murder mysteries, and eat leftovers. And it was amazing because I don’t get to have that kind of break often.

Plus, we ended up getting our Christmas tree this weekend too! I said that we’d settle for a small Christmas tree this year since we don’t really have room for it. But when we got to the Christmas tree lot and walked around, I spotted a 6 foot tree that seemed just perfect. I ended up buying it on the spot. Sooo….. so much for buying a smaller tree this year. Lol. Did you get your Christmas tree yet?

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with lots of good food. I spent most of Wednesday prepping for Thanksgiving so that all I had to worry about the day of is how many times I can refill my plate. And maybe naps in between eating.

I’m counting down the days until the holidays, my favorite time of year. There’s something about the last two months of the year that just feels exciting. Maybe it’s because of the food-filled holidays, maybe it’s because it’s the season of giving, or maybe it’s because there are just plenty of reasons to celebrate. Whatever the reason, I’m ready for it.

It’s been a really difficult week in California. You may have heard that there are fires burning both in the North and in the South. The Camp Fire, as the wildfire in the Northeast part of California is called, has been devastating. So many lives lost, so many people without homes. It’s going to be a difficult holiday season for so many people. And as awful as it sounds, and as depressing as it is, these wildfires seem to be our new reality.

San Francisco has been smoky since last Thursday when the fire started. Since then, it has gotten so much worse. Our homes smell like smoke. We’re told to wear masks when going outside. A blanket of orange haze sits over the city. And it is predicted that this will continue for at least another week.

This photo shows what it looks like at 9 in the morning.
