Friday Fun
• Barnes & Noble: new British Country Living (and when I got home there was my subscription copy of the US edition)
• Michael's: Christmas light tester (maybe we can finally figure out why that other GE string is only half lit)
• JoAnn: floss bobbins and the new copy of "Cross-Stitcher" with a winter sampler
• Bed, Bath and Beyond: more CocoaVia bars and...FINALLY! mineral oil for the kitchen table; I noticed while cleaning it off after the party Saturday that it was looking quite dry (I've been looking for this for quite a while, so I count this as a major coup)
• Borders: "Country Home" and "Cook's Country," and the Holly Claus color picture edition
• Costco: gas, milk, and shredded lunch: Costco has the best samples. I tried some type of Cinnabon cake, hummus with red pepper flakes, pate on crackers, teriyaki chicken, lobster bisque, crab cakes, turkey breast, French bread with butter, pumpkin-flavored cereal flakes, some type of energy granola bars, and a biscuit with strawberry jam (who needs a restaurant when you've got Costco?)

Came home through Kennesaw Mountain Battlefield Park, which is simply gorgeous with color.

Plus the laundry is 2/3 of the way done, the Thanksgiving decorations are up, and we had a very nice supper at a new place, the Oriental Cafe, that John and Betty were talking about last weekend. Their wonton soup is quite good. I had cashew chicken and brought home enough of the meat for a small lunch on Wednesday.
