Delray Beach- Thanksgiving Weekend
We have had absolutely gorgeous Thanksgiving week weather. Earlier in the week, we had some cool (for us) mornings but that didn’t last long.
The beaches have been full and Atlantic Avenue bustling with visitors and students home from school.
The Turkey Trot was held last Saturday and it was well attended. Not only that, some managed to trot and get dressed up!
Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings. William Arthur Ward
We watched plenty of college hoops as well as college football and a few NFL games. When I was a child, I couldn’t wait to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, but it’s lost its appeal to me lately. It seems a bit over-commercialized.
Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes. Half-times take twelve minutes. This is not coincidence. Erma Bombeck
If you are really thankful, what do you do? You share. W. Clement Stone
I did not even consider setting foot inside a store on Black Friday, nor have I taken advantage of any online deals. Of course, there’s always Cyber Monday!
When I was in the Godiva store earlier this week, they said that because of their lease agreement, they would open Thanksgiving evening at 6 PM and stay open until 1 AM, and then reopen Friday early.
What about you? Did you hit the stores on Friday?
Thankfulness is the beginning of gratitude. Gratitude is the completion of thankfulness. Thankfulness may consist merely of words. Gratitude is shown in acts. Henri Frederic Amiel
The crunch is on now and the holidays are just a hop, skip and a jump around the corner. It’s time to finish your holiday shopping, and yes, I know many of you have long since completed this task!
If you’re waiting to get in the mood to do your holiday shopping, I have a suggestion:
Start your shopping, immerse yourself in Christmas music, garland, and Santa Clauses and Snowmen. This will get you in the mood!
Have a fun and wonderful weekend!
