Favorite {Photo} Friday--Cranberries

Our sweet neighbors Steve and Roxanne always invite over all the "misfits" they know who don't have anywhere else to go for Thanksgiving; isn't that so lovely? My parents often did that when I was growing up and now I get to experience it from the other side. :) And how convenient for us that it was right across the street! :)

We had a great group of ten of us and Roxanne cooked up a feast. Yummmmmm! Her friend Becky made this gorgeous dessert and I couldn't help playing with my 50 mm lens. It's not a fabulous photo, but I'm learning about my lens and I loooove cranberries and the color red, so this is so luscious to me!

I hadn't slept well the night before, so add in a big meal and some Tryptophan and I was falling asleep at the table after dessert! So I went over to the couch and fell asleep; Roxanne covered me up with a nice blanket and the kitties came to cuddle me... what is better than that, I ask you? I'm still laughing that I even did it because it's so unlike me, but it just goes to show how comfortable I am with all our neighbors!

I don't like shopping during the best of times, let alone during busy times; I'm also, ahem, not a morning person. In short, there's no way in hell you would catch me getting up at 4 a.m. to fight the hordes on Black Friday! When I rolled over and saw the time was 9 a.m. I laughed and thought, "Some crazy people have been shopping for four hours already, I'm so glad I was sleeping instead." Ha ha. :) :) How about you, did you score any deals that will make me wish I got out of bed on Friday? Or just have fun watching people act insanely? I'd love to hear about it! :) Leave me a comment! :)

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving and are having a great long weekend!

Yum, I love cranberries! Can you believe that this year (we went to my SIL's house) and all they had was canned cranberries? I almost died...ok, not really, but seriously...they could have called & asked me to bring REAL ones. :D

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

No shopping, no way.
I ate pancakes and wore slippers most of the day.

that photo is awesome. your camera seems to do a really good job or is it all the editing?? Do you have one of those light boxes? In two weeks we have a jewelry show at school to present our final projects for the semester and they use those boxes to photograph everything for our portfolios. We are supposed to learn some cool tricks for taking great pics of jewelry which I will send off to you straight away. i must say though - your pics are beautiful. so is your work :o)
