I had a delightfully boring 4 days off from work.

Thanksgiving at Casa Diane was pretty low key. I did the cooking and mom brought 3 pies - 2 pumpkin and one peach - because they were only $2.95 each at Stater Bros. When I found out this was her plan for dessert, I got up extra early and baked a yummy carrot cake. Besides the fact that she made my brother's childhood friend cry by grilling him about his recent break up with a long term girlfriend, she was generally on prettty good behavior.

After eating too much on Thanksgiving, I have now stocked my fridge and pantry with tons of healthy (and mostly organic) food. I am hoping the high fiber Trader Joe's Cheerios will help soak up the excess butter in my veins.

The dogs and I went for long walks every day, which allowed me time for quite a lot of listening to books on tape. I finished Ulysses (and I do believe that audible is the way to go with this classic [and long] novel), and I am about half way through Slay Ride by Chris Grabenstein. I love, love, love Grabenstein's John Ceepak series (Tilt-A-Whirl, Whack-A-Mole and Mad Mouse) and Slay Ride, while not quite as lighthearted, is still very good.

I also watched Ocean's Thirteen. Ok, so it's not Academy Award material, and much of it makes no sense, but it is still quite entertaining.

Today, I am back at work earning the money to pay for my new television . . .

Happy Monday, all!

Happy Monday to you too.

I'm impressed that you got through Ulysses. I don't know if I would even have the patience to listen to it.

Happy post-thanksgiving. That TV is sexy.

My mother and your mother can never meet. They would use their passive aggression to destroy the world!

The pies all sound yummy!

Looks like you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

I'll watch anything with Clooney in it, I don't care how bad it is. You can always turn the sound down.

Never thought of listening to Ulysses--doesn't seem quite so intimidating that way. Thanks!

yes, carrot cake! For me, the break has been good, if I could only be off and away a little longer.

Thank you, Ocean's 13 is very entertaining. What are people expecting?

And speaking of expecting, I came here looking for some Dancing with the Stars dish? I wanted the scoop on the racer and the vixen.
