Front porch chattin'

It's Wednesday again!  It's isn't snowing hereanymore but I wouldn't want to be sitting out on the porch today.  I'm glad that Patrice has invited us inside.  As long as people are chatting, I don't think we much care where we are, really.

There are already quite a few people gathered and the conversation is buzzin'.  I'll have to jump in and catch up quickly.  Here's today's starters:

What are you thankful for?  I'm thankful for my wonderful life - and everything in it.  I am free to do whatever I choose to do.  It doesn't get any better than that. 

Jellied cranberry or whole berry cranberry?  No contest.  Whole berry and homemade.  I can control the sweet level when I do it myself.  I like it on the tart side.  

How many will sit at your dinner table Thursday?  Two.  We've already had our Thanksgiving here in Canada.  So, it's just another Thursday to us.

Would anyone who visits the porch be interested in some  type of Christmas card or small gift exchange?  Just keepin' it real - I don't send Christmas cards any more.  

Do you venture out on Black Friday?  I wouldn't.  Much as I like shopping, I'd stay home on any day when the stores would be filled with bargain-hungry shoppers.  Here, it's Boxing Day.  I'm staying home and  knitting. 

Time to head out and do some of those things I choose to do.  Head on over to the chat's right here.  Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

I love jellied cranberry sauce myself, but this year, I'll be trying to make it myself. Something to do.

We had nearly two inches of rain yesterday and it was awful, but at least there is nothing to shovel.

Stay warm and cozy indoors. That's the best when it's wintry outside.

The shopping? Online Friday and then a spin in at the yarn store all day Saturday! Can't wait.

I just 15 minutes ago tasted my first ever homemade cranberry sauce and I LOVE IT! Who knew? LOL My grandmother, mother and step mother all use canned and I never liked it.

I keep saying I'm not going to send Christmas cards anymore and then I go and do it. Every stinking year.

Staying home when there are crazed shoppers out there is always a good idea! I do enjoy a cranberry sauce that isn't as sweet as store bought.

I understand not sending cards. It can be overwhelming.Thanks for chatting!

We don't do Thanksgiving at all here, which I think is a pity. It's good to focus on gratitude, and we all have stuff in our lives to be thankful for.
Home-made cranberry sauce sound delish!
I keep thinking of stopping sending Christmas cards, especially as everyone also texts Happy Christmas AND happy New Year, but come November, I get mushy and can't bring myself to do it!
