Catching up

Wow, I just realized that I haven't posted since Wednesday!
You all know I post almost every day…I think this is the longest I have been away.
So I know you are all sitting on the edge of your seats waiting for me to share with you all that I have been up to, lol.

Tonight is the Mid-season finale of the Walking Dead.
This being one of my favourite shows, I had to celebrate this right ;)
So I dressed for the occasion.
Put on my jammy pants, one of my many Walking Dead t-shirts and plunked my butt on the couch :)
Wayne and I were going to make a taco dip/salad to enjoy while we watched the show…but yesterday we celebrated our Fakesgiving, so we had a lot of leftovers, so decided against the taco dip/salad.

Yes, yesterday we celebrated our Fakesgiving with my daughters, their boyfriends/husband and my friend/SIL Sharon and her husband Jim.
Are you are wondering what Fakesgiving is?
It is my made up holiday…actually it is just an excuse to have my family over and eat another turkey dinner :)
Being Canadian, we celebrate Thanksgiving in October, so what better way to get in another big family meal, then to celebrate the American Thanksgiving as well….plus we visit the States so often, we should have dual citizenship and be allowed to celebrate all of their holidays too, lol.

I read this book that I have heard such great reviews on.
I love to organize….I say I keep making a mess of things, just so I can re-organize ;)
One point that I love that she made, for your home to be more peaceful…is to focus on what you want to keep, not what you need to get rid of.
Keep only what you love (or brings you joy) or what is useful…everything else, be thankful it was in your life and then let it go.
Isn't that a great way to look at our belongings :)

I went through my phone photos…again.
As you can see from the photo above, I had deleted 2,846 photos.
I had just recently deleted over 1,000.
I actually froze my phone when I tried to delete them all at once.
Kristy had to help me by deleting them in smaller amounts.

I had also challenged myself to NOT shop for any crafty supplies for the month of November.
It was actually pretty easy.
But when you consider the shopping I did on our few trips to the States last month, and we will be heading there again in December….
But I did pick up some new nail polish colours. But that isn't crafty :)
Ashley always teases me that I always choose the same colours…which is partly true.
I did pick up a fun silver colour….I thought that might be a fun colour for Christmas :)

Well, there you go…that is what I have been up to lately :)
I hope you all have a very Creative day :)

Tracy :)


  1. I watch the Chew which is a cooking/talk show they celebrated Friendsgiving. I like that quote from the tidy up book it sure makes sense.

  2. Hope you all had a lovely dinner, Tracy! I won't be able to watch TWD until tomorrow, hope it was a good episode to tide us over until February! ;)

  3. I bet you and I are some of the very few that celebrate 2 Thanksgivings! Your picture cracked me up! Glad you posted to catch up. I need to do that!

  4. Awh, I love Fakesgiving! I read that book too and loved the idea of keeping what brings you joy, but honestly I was overwhelmed by the damn thing. Lol

  5. Two turkey dinners sounds awesome!! I'm glad you had time with your family!! The nail polish colors are gorgeous!! I tend to buy the same colors all the time, too...maybe I'll try silver for the holidays ;) Have a great day :)

  6. Ha ha… Fakesgiving! Good one! We just ate the last of the pie. Last of pie = 4 miles! It was worth it!

  7. We are holding off watching season 6 until it is finished :-) We have watched all now to the end of Season 5 - loved watching it and can't wait to see the rest. Maybe convince Andy to at least watch the first half of Season 6.

  8. I recently bought that book but haven't read it yet. I'm waiting for January.


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
